Man United shouldn't let Paul Pogba go to Real Madrid -- it's better to keep him than watch him shine elsewhere

The professional knowhow of Premier League footballers was loudly questioned when Paul Pogba was named in the PFA's team of the season this week. It's true that he's the only player not from Liverpool or Manchester City in there, but some perspective is needed, please. The votes were cast when Pogba was in form during the three-month bounce after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge.

Critics point to Eden Hazard's impressive statistics in the wake of his omission, but Pogba's stats aren't bad either....

How Man City used Premier League title race to overcome UCL heartbreak

Pep Guardiola's men prevailed 2-0 in the Manchester derby to put them within sight of back-to-back Premier League titles.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and Leroy Sane speak after their side moved to the top of the table with a derby win over Manchester United.

More than an hour after Manchester City's exit from the Champions League last week, Sergio Aguero was sitting in the dressing room still wearing his kit. The laid-back striker is normally the last to leave -- be it off the team bus arriving at the stadium and from the ground after the final whistle -- but this time was different. Aguero was crestfallen, tears in his eyes after City's brutal quarterfinal exit at the hands of Tottenham.

The manner of that defeat was, in Pep Guardiola's words, cruel....

Frank Lampard to manage Chelsea? He could be the perfect replacement for Sarri

Craig Burley and Frank Leboeuf feel both Eden Hazard and Chelsea would benefit from Hazard moving to Real Madrid.

Maurizio Sarri has endured a difficult first season at Chelsea. Although they play Eintracht Frankfurt in the semifinals of the Europa League and sit in fourth place in the Premier League, with their top-four hopes in their own hands, it has been a disappointing campaign.

Sarri, like Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte before him, has been frustrated by a lack of impetus in the transfer market and an uneasy relationship with many of his squad. The 60-year-old reportedly favours a return to Italy in...

Same old Arsenal? Gunners lack fight, leadership on the road again as top-four hopes take hit

Arsenal's top four hopes took another major hit in a 3-1 defeat to Wolves, their second straight Premier League defeat.
The FC crew wonder if Arsenal should shift their focus to winning the Europa League following consecutive Premier League defeats.

For Arsenal, it feels as if normal service has been resumed. That is not to say they have rediscovered the carefree, devastating football of old. Instead it means that, on a chastening night in Wolverhampton, they presented the very worst version of themselves: leaderless, lifeless, utterly unresponsive to adversity.

Narrow wins at Watford and Napoli suggested that maybe, just maybe, they had arrested two seasons of woeful away form. But such a resounding 3-1 defeat to an excellent Wolves team...

Man City prove they're too good to let title slip from their grasp by outclassing United

Pep Guardiola's men prevailed 2-0 in the Manchester derby to put them within sight of back-to-back Premier League titles.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley was left deeply underwhelmed by Manchester United's latest defeat to title-chasing Manchester City.
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and Leroy Sane speak after their side moved to the top of the table with a derby win over Manchester United.

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City have played 27 games in 2019, and walked off the pitch as winners after 25 of them. They have not fallen behind in a Premier League fixture since the end of January and they are on course to end the season with 98 points.

Yet most of the talk in this title race has centred on the unbreakable spirit of Liverpool.

City, perhaps because they set the bar so high last season by amassing 100 points, have found themselves slipping under the radar due to the drama...

Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan star as Man City beat rivals United, go top of the league

Pep Guardiola's men prevailed 2-0 in the Manchester derby to put them within sight of back-to-back Premier League titles.

MANCHESTER, England, -- Manchester City moved back atop of the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over rivals United in the Manchester derby. After a tense, goalless first half, Bernardo Silva broke the deadlock with a clever run and finish in the 54th minute before Leroy Sane added a second 12 minutes later.

 

Positives

The tension was growing after a mixed display in the first half and City needing the three points to maintain control of the title race. But despite the pressure, City kept...
