Riyad Mahrez Sparks A Light Of Hope For Leicester City As The Foxes Risk Relegation

Falling from grace is a long distance. A little more than a year ago, the whole town of Leicester City was celebrating an historic event: the Foxes had succeeded, against all odds, to win the Premier League title for the first time in their history. 

We all remember the story that moved and inspired the entire soccer universe: Led by manager Claudio Ranieri, a team recently promoted had done the unthinkable, beating huge powerhouses like Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

This Scorpion Kick Training Goal From Alberto Moreno Is Amazing

One of the bright spots in an otherwise disappointing Liverpool start to the season has been the play of left back Alberto Moreno. The oft-criticized Spaniard has emerged, somehow, as Liverpool's best defender and his attacking play has been as good as just about any fullback in Europe.

Goalie Distribution Almost Directly Relates To English Premier League Success

Does your goalie like to pick out passes to nearby teammates and help the team play out of the back or does he like to hoof it up the park to get it as far away from him as possible?

Who, you might ask, had the gall, the temerity, the AUDACITY to throw a pizza at Sir Alex Ferguson and HIT HIM IN THE FACE WITH IT?

Cesc Fabregas, then with Arsenal and now with our complete admiration and respect.

Philippe Coutinho Wonder Goal Not Enough To Save Liverpool From Themselves

This Philippe Coutinho wonder goal from outside the box, the 17th of his Premier League career, was canceled out by a fortunate Joselu goal as Liverpool and Newcastle United played to a 1-1 draw on Sunday at Saint James’ Park. Liverpool now find themselves trailing the Manchester clubs by seven points after seven matches following their third draw of the season.

Crystal Palace Is Closing In On The Record For Longest EPL Scoreless Streak

Crystal Palace has played six, lost six, conceded 13 goals and scored none. That’s 540 minutes of English Premier League football without scoring, a record for longest goalless streak to start a season. In other words, one epic dry spell. But even if Crystal Palace manages to score this weekend against Manchester United, the Eagles will still hold the record for longest EPL scoreless streak.
