Feature Matches
Matchday fourteen of the English Premier League takes place Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.  Manchester United will look to continue their good form against Stoke, while Liverpool has a chance to garner some points against struggling Leicester City.  One of this season's brightest surprises, West Ham, travel to West Brom in another Tuesday clash.  Wednesday's highlights include a London Derby between Chelsea and Tottenham, and Arsenal face a tough test against a strong Southampton side!

On the weekend the action kicks off with Chelsea travelling to Newcastle, for the early Saturday morning match (5:45am).  Other matches of note include Arsenal making the trek to StokeTottenham in their second London Derby of the week against Crystal Palace, and Everton battling second place Manchester City in the 10am slot.  Saturday's football coverage concludes with Real Madrid v Celta Vigo at noon.

Sunday we have a mix of EPLSPL, and La Liga before the highlight match of the weekend, the 2014 MLS Cup Final!  The New England Revolution face the L.A. Galaxy to see who will be crowned MLS Champion.  New England looks strong, and are showing a tremendous amount of confidence, but L.A. will be considered the favorites for this one.  Not only does Los Angeles hold the home field advantage, with the match scheduled at the Stub Hub Center, but they are also riding the emotional wave of Landon Donavan's retirement from the game.  The Revolution will make their fifth appearance in the MLS Final, having never won the coveted trophy.  They will rely heavily on the hard working Jermaine Jones to stifle an L.A. attack that has put sixty-nine goals in the back of the net this year.  The match kicks off at 1pm Sunday afternoon, and should provide a thrilling finale to a great MLS season!

On the Horizon

Next week the Champions League Group Stages wrap up, and Manchester United and Liverpool clash on Sunday morning!
