Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologises to Manchester United's fans after their loss at Everton, saying only they were fit to wear the badge at Goodison.

LIVERPOOL, England -- There have been some shocking Manchester United performances since Sir Alex Ferguson retired six years ago. It is a list that includes Olympiakos, Manchester City and Liverpool in 2014, Wolfsburg and Stoke in 2015, and Brighton, Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool in 2018. You can now add Everton away in 2019.

It is a crowded field, but the dismal display at Goodison Park was as bad as it's been since Fergie waved goodbye. Easter Sunday at Everton marked the end for David...

Shaka Hislop wasn't too impressed by Manchester City's win over Tottenham but says they have proven they can hold off Liverpool in the title race.
Bernardo Silva sets his sights on the remaining Premier League fixtures as Manchester City stay on course for the title by beating Tottenham.

Premier League champions sometimes need goals from unlikely sources. Granted, they will usually have a striker trying to win a golden boot and a prolific attacking midfielder in the running for player of the year honours, but contributions can also come from less obvious sources, who choose the perfect moment to score their first goal in the English top flight.

There was Christopher Wreh for Arsenal in 1998, who netted for the first time in a Premier League game to secure a win against Wimbledon;...

Arsenal learning knockout football lessons from Europa League master Emery

NAPLES, Italy -- The final hour of this tie was played out amid what, by this arena's standards, was near silence. As the last 20 minutes drew in, the population of Stadio San Paolo's famous "Curvas" thinned out to a fraction of their capacity.

Think about what those two sentences mean. They mean that Arsenal came to one of the most feared venues in Europe, faced down a Napoli side that had been strongly tipped to overturn a two-goal deficit, and killed this quarterfinal stone dead against all expectation....

Liverpool show again they can win 'by any means necessary' to set up a showdown with Barcelona

PORTO, Portugal -- If the apocalypse comes and all life is wiped out, Liverpool will be right there next to the cockroaches.

They're the side that won't go away. They're the side that in the space of a year has turned from a reckless teenager into a furrowed-brow 30-something, from a side just as liable to blow teams away as explode into one that wins by any means necessary, grinding out results when you didn't think them possible.

A 4-1...

Seven goals and VAR drama as Tottenham stun City. Was this greatest UCL game ever?

MANCHESTER, England -- It was Pep Guardiola's Jose Mourinho moment. A late, dramatic winner in a Champions League tie, followed by the victorious manager sprinting down the touchline to celebrate wildly with his players.

But then, in the flash of a video screen, it wasn't.

The Etihad Stadium went from raucous noise to mournful silence as Raheem Sterling's 93rd-minute hat-trick goal, Manchester City's fifth on the night, was ruled out -- correctly -- following a VAR review that ruled that Sergio...

Ajax's ideals triumph over riches of Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo

ESPN FC's Craig Burley credits Ajax for teaching Juventus a footballing lesson over two legs in their Champions League quarterfinal tie.

TURIN, Italy -- It turns out Cristiano Ronaldo is not enough. The Portuguese scored in both legs of Juventus' Champions League quarterfinal against Ajax. He put the Bianconeri in front at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday. They wouldn't even be here without his face-saving hat trick against Atletico Madrid in the round of 16. The 34-year-old kept up his side of the bargain. Ultimately, though, Juventus came up short.

What Ajax have achieved is stunning. As Erik ten Hag noted on the eve of the game,...
