Ferguson, Mourinho and playing the way Manchester United should

Steve Nicol wraps up all of Sunday's Premier League action, with United and Spurs getting much-needed wins and Liverpool and City battling to a breathless 1-1 draw.
Steve Nicol wraps up all of Sunday's Premier League action, with United and Spurs getting much-needed wins and Liverpool and City battling to a breathless 1-1 draw.

There are two reasons why you might have heard one of the newest chants sung by Manchester United fans. The first is that these supporters remain the Premier League's nosiest and most consistently impressive away support. And the second is because its lyrics prompt a debate about precisely what Jose Mourinho's side are all about.

Based on the Herman's Hermits' hit song "I'm Into Something Good," which reached the top of the UK charts amid Beatlemania in 1964, its lyrics are simple and catchy. Against...

Manchester City and Liverpool ran rampant on each other for 90 minutes as penalty decisions and missed chances meant a 1-1 draw.

Manchester City and Liverpool played out a frantic 1-1 draw filled with intense pressing, slick passing and adventurous tactics at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

With both teams pressing high, City tried to pass their way out from the back, while Liverpool preferred to loft passes towards their forwards. David Silva and Adam Lallana moved cleverly in midfield, drifting out wide to link up and create danger.

After taking the lead via James Milner's 51st-minute penalty, Liverpool dropped deeper...

Champions League goal glut a result of aggressive pressing in advanced areas

Mark Donaldson and Craig Burley predict who will move on to the Champions League quarterfinals.
The FC panel preview Manchester City's leg two clash against Monaco in the UEFA Champions League.

The most peculiar thing about Barcelona's astonishing 6-5 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain wasn't the remarkable comeback itself, but the fact that it wasn't entirely out of keeping with the general feel of the Champions League round of 16.

Ten years ago it would have been ludicrous to imagine a come-from-behind win featuring seven goals. Matches at this stage of the competition tended to be tight, tense and tactical, with first legs often finishing 0-0; the opening games of 2006-07 round...

Burnley frustrate Liverpool with pressing, Can winner out of the blue

Mark Donaldson and Craig Burley break down Philippe Coutinho's drop in form since his return from injury.
Steve Nicol defends Burnley's style of play and shares his thoughts on Philippe Coutinho's struggles.

Burnley delivered an excellent tactical display to frustrate Liverpool for long spells at Anfield on Sunday, but succumbed to a late first-half equaliser and an excellent winner from Emre Can.

Sean Dyche played his hand perfectly over the first 45 minutes, as Burnley troubled the hosts with long passes. Attacking duo Andre Gray and Ashley Barnes stretched the backline and bullied defenders, with Barnes hitting a slick early opener.

The visitors also repelled Liverpool with their rigid 4-4-2 structure,...

Closing down space behind full-backs at the heart of Premier League success

After an uneven start, Antonio Conte drastically switched Chelsea's system and the rest is history.

If you want to win the Premier League title, it seems there's a peculiar ritual you have to follow -- lose by three goals to Arsenal in late September.

Last season, Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City were thrashed 5-2 by Arsenal at the King Power Stadium, with Alexis Sanchez helping himself to a hat trick. 363 days later, Arsenal produced another masterful performance to thrash Antonio Conte's Chelsea 3-0, with Sanchez and Mesut Ozil counter-attacking majestically through Chelsea's backline.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard, not N'Golo Kante, should win player of the year

Steve Nicol examines the arguments for N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard to win the Premier League's top individual honour.
ESPN FC's Mark Ogden and Joao Castelo-Branco react to Chelsea's win over West Ham, and their impending claim of the title.

In two months' time, Chelsea will win the Premier League -- and one of their players will almost certainly win PFA Player of the Year too. That battle is essentially a two-horse race between two very different runners, N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard. The former has emerged as the popular favourite but the latter has truly been Chelsea's outstanding performer this season.

The title winners don't always provide the season's outstanding performer but with Antonio Conte's men currently 10 points clear...
