Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez lead Real Madrid's rout of Real Betis

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik breaks down Gareth Bale's importance to Real Madrid in attack citing the teamwork betweek James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale to be the key contributing factor in their 5-0 win.

MADRID -- Three things from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and Real Madrid's even easier than it sounds 5-0 thumping of Real Betis in Saturday evening's La Liga clash.

1. Bale's timing spot on

Gareth Bale came into this match with a point to prove. The world's most expensive player had been singled out as the main issue with the team's attack after last weekend's disappointing 0-0 draw at Sporting Gijon. His positioning as a No. 10 became a matter of much debate among Bernabeu fans and pundits over...

Jose Mourinho shoulders blame as Chelsea's horrible season continues

Chelsea suffered yet another setback when they were beaten 2-1 at home by Crystal Palace.

LONDON -- Eventually it came, even if it wasn't anywhere near as likely as Crystal Palace scoring after Chelsea had once again left so much space to exploit around their box. Yet another poor performance by Jose Mourinho's team saw the manager finally criticise himself -- albeit with a caveat, because he was also criticising some of his players.

"I blame myself not to change one of them, because I kept him in the game for 90 minutes," Mourinho said after a 2-1 defeat to Palace that also marked...

1. A nightmare for Liverpool

When examining a shock result, you must decide whether it was the favourites playing particularly badly or the underdogs excelling. It's always a blend of both, of course, but here it was primarily the former.

West Ham defended perfectly well, but they offered little attacking threat, and their two goals came almost out of nothing.

Chelsea and Jose Mourinho in trouble after 2-1 defeat vs. Crystal Palace

Chelsea suffered yet another setback when they were beaten 2-1 at home by Crystal Palace.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Chelsea's 2-1 loss at home Saturday to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

1. Chelsea's struggles multiply

A century of games at Stamford Bridge in the league, and a multiplying number of problems for Jose Mourinho. Crystal Palace so brilliantly exposed each of those to claim a deserved 2-1 win that could have been even more.

So on the occasion of the Chelsea manager's 100th home game in the Premier League, he endured just his second defeat at the stadium, and...

1. Arsenal win but questions remain over attackers

Saturday's 1-0 win at St James' Park represented a second away victory for Arsenal as they got back on track after an indifferent start to the season.
