Nigeria defender Leon Balogun bristles, in jocular indignation, when the subject of his perceived lack of pace is broached. He considers it a personal affront, and he quickly rises to his own defence.

"I need to correct that," he tells ESPN, just a few weeks out from the Africa Cup of Nations. "I think people are doing me wrong. It is just the way I run so people think I am slower.

Brighton lure Potter from Swansea as new manager

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner reveals his top goals of the 2018-19 Premier League season as the rest of the FC crew call his ranking into question.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany reflects on his side's path to a second consecutive Premier League title, and the competition they faced from Liverpool. (edited)
Manchester City celebrated winning the 2018-19 Premier League title after a thrilling back and forth battle with Liverpool throughout the season.

Had Manchester City blown it? Glenn Murray had just headed Brighton into the lead in the 27th minute, and anyone seeking final-day drama had their hook. City had cracked at the worst possible moment; they had lost their nerve just as the hard work seemed to have been done; they had made a season's excellence count for nothing and Pep Guardiola would face familiar accusations of overcomplicating at a moment that demanded clarity.

Those would have been the headlines, the think pieces, the pub discussions...
