EPL: Bolton v Manchester United Highlights

For the first time in 2 years, Scholes scores for Man U. Good thing too as Rooney blows a chance from the spot and late goals by Welbeck and Carrick finish off Bolton as the Red Devils easily handle the win, 3-0.

EPL: Chelsea v Sunderland Highlights

Lampard gets the lone goal in another dominating performance Saturday with less than stellar results. 60/40 possession, 25/9 on shots... Blues, you're disappointing the fans.

EPL: Tottenham v Wolves Highlights

Disappointing. A 2nd half goal is needed by a dominate Spurs team to draw Wolves, at home, despite holding a 2/3 time of possession and a 26 to 5 shot advantage. Modric and Fletcher with the goals.

USMNT Schedule:
Jan 21 USMNT v Venezuela Univ. of Phoenix Stadium Glendale, AZ (tickets)
Jan 25 USMNT v Panama Estadio Rommel Fernandez Panama City, Panama

EPL: Everton v Tottenham Highlights

To say that Landycakes has been less than spectacular since returning to Everton on loan is a bit harsh. That said, they have failed to win with him in the lineup. Actually, they have failed to win a lot of times with their current lineup... just saying. Defender... let me repeat that, defender, Assou-Ekotto and Lennon both hit their mark as Spurs win the opening day makeup, 2-0. By the way, for the Spurs at home, that puts Tottenham in a tie for 2nd place with Man U... Cue the inevitable curse of the 2nd half.
