Tottenham need Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen to step up against West Ham

Don Hutchison looks at three key things that could help West Ham beat London rivals Tottenham on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino elaborates on Dele Alli's gesture against Barnsley and looks ahead to Spurs' clash with West Ham.

Take a look at the Premier League table and it's hard to believe that Tottenham are in fifth place. OK, so we're only five games into the season and Spurs are only ahead of five other teams based purely on goal difference, but the defeat by Chelsea, and the two disappointing draws against Burnley and Swansea at their temporary Wembley home, would have suggested something much worse.

That Spurs are still within touching distance of the two Manchester clubs at the top of the table is entirely down...

Questions remain about Man City's squad depth after win over West Brom

Five different goalscorers were on the scoresheet for Man City vs. Palace from their last meeting back in May.
Craig Burley breaks down Kevin de Bruyne's supposed new Man City contract, where he's set to earn significantly more.
Ale Moreno says Man City's abundance of talent and squad depth is why they're such heavy favourites to win the league.

For 45 minutes on Wednesday night, Manchester City fans could have been forgiven for thinking that, for the first time in a long time, their side had good strength in depth. At half-time in the 2-1 Carabao Cup victory at West Brom, the visitors were leading 1-0 and had few could have complained had they been further in front.

However, the Baggies' revival after the break forced Pep Guardiola's side onto the back foot for long spells -- and but for a great strike from Leroy Sane and some missed chances...

Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Tom Davies show way forward for Everton

ESPN spent a day behind the scenes at Everton to find out why they are the "people's club."

Manager Ronald Koeman saw his much-changed Everton side advance into the Carabao Cup fourth round with relative ease against obliging Sunderland on Wednesday.

The first Dominic Calvert-Lewin's two goals on the night marked the first by any Everton player in almost seven and a half hours of football. The three-goal victory secured a first win in seven matches and ended a four-game losing streak.

There was a lack of cohesion in the early stages after eight changes from the 4-0 defeat at Manchester...

No. 10s come in all shapes, sizes and styles in Premier League

ESPN spent a day behind the scenes at Everton to find out why they are the "people's club."

Just in case you'd managed to forget about him, former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood emerged from the shadows this week to provide his views on youth football in a television debate show. One of his complaints, among many others, was that too many youth footballers in England consider themselves No. 10s.

This was a particularly peculiar complaint considering one of English football's failings over the past few decades is the inability to produce talented, creative, gifted No. 10s...
