Sam Allardyce's high-flying West Ham prepare for battle at Stoke

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce praised his team's all-around performance in their victory against Manchester City.

Despite the initial doom and gloom surrounding Diafra Sakho's shoulder injury, it's likely the Senegal striker will be fit for West Ham's trip to Stoke this weekend -- although whether or not Sam Allardyce will risk the free-scoring forward is another matter.

Conflicting stories about the player have been circulating all week, but it has been confirmed that the injury suffered in the game against Manchester City last week is only soreness and bruising and not the dislocated shoulder originally feared....

Liverpool must not underestimate resurgent Newcastle

Mario Balotelli scored for the first time in eight matches against Swansea in the Capital One Cup, but is that enough to get him firing again?

Liverpool travel to the north-east on Saturday for a lunchtime fixture that all of a sudden looks an awful lot tougher than it did a week ago. Newcastle United were in the bottom three and facing a tough trip to face Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday. They fell behind early, which will have surprised nobody, but came back to win 2-1, which will have surprised everybody, perhaps even themselves.

Three days later they followed it up with an even bigger upset, dumping holders Manchester City out...

Manchester United fan carves Louis van Gaal, Manuel Pellegrini pumpkins

With both Halloween and, more importantly, the first Manchester derby of the season now within spitting distance, a football fan from Lancashire has successfully spliced the two together like some kind of ungodly lab experiment gone awry.

Simon McMinnis, who comes down firmly on the United side of the Manc divide, has spent the majority of his week so far creating jack-o'-lantern effigies of the two managers going head-to-head at the Etihad on Sunday using two enormous 15kg pumpkins he purchased...

Theo Walcott availability gives Arsenal turbo-charged boost vs. Burnley

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared his Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez to Luis Suarez during the weekend. So how do their numbers stack up through their first nine career Premier League matches?
Theo Walcott scored five Premier League goals in 13 appearances last season.

This weekend, Arsenal come up against Premier League strugglers Burnley. It's a superb opportunity for the Gunners to gain another three points and continue their climb up the table. Their confidence will be boosted not just by two consecutive victories, but also by the return to fitness of Theo Walcott.

The last time these two sides met was in March 2010. On that occasion, Arsenal ran out 3-1 winners. Walcott was among the goalscorers, cutting in from the right flank to fire home with his left...

Van Gaal can instill confidence at United with Manchester derby result

Andy Cole has backed Wayne Rooney to return from suspension stronger for Manchester United in their derby against champions Manchester City.

The last time Manchester United won the Manchester derby was December 2012 and they had a knight of the realm in the dugout. As the Christmas lights go up in 2014, United fans are hoping a run of three decisive defeats comes to an end this Sunday and Louis van Gaal's record in derby matches stands them in good stead.

The Order of Orange-Nassau is the Dutch equivalent of a knighthood and is awarded to people who deserve "special appreciation for their work in Dutch society." Unlike its British...

Crystal Palace purchase by American investor Josh Harris divisive, intriguing

Mile Jedinak and company might soon be getting a new owner at Selhurst Park.

What on earth does Chevy Chase have to do with Crystal Palace FC? It's a fair question. But first, some backstory.

Chevy Chase is pretty much one of the best things about America. His cameo in the video for Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" is amazing. His performance in "Caddyshack" -- the greatest film ever made -- is hilarious. He was great as inappropriate, grumpy pensioner Pierce Hawthorne in the massively underrated sitcom "Community," which few seem to watch, though it is one of the best...
