ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Arsenal completely controlled proceedings against a somewhat lacklustre Chelsea side. Arsene Wenger believes Theo Walcott is a completely different player now that he's found his form in the Premier League. If it wasn't quite perfection for Arsene Wenger, it was only because Chelsea were missing three of the key misery-causing antagonists from the past five years of this spiky London derby. It had been nine life-sapping games since Arsenal had defeated the Blues in league play and as satisfying as Saturday's 3-0 beat down at the Emirates must have been for my favorite Frenchman, it would have been that much sweeter had it included that unholy trio of bogeymen: Jose Mourinho, John Terry and Mike Dean. But...

One Nacion's Leon Lecanda details Club America's win over Pumas in Ricardo La Volpe's first match in charge. After 11 weeks of football in Liga MX, the 2016 Apertura has been irregular. But it's this inconsistency that will allow us to witness a truly electric end to the regular season, with up to 11 teams potentially battling for four playoff spots. Here are our Liga MX Power Rankings after Week 11: 1. TIGRES UANL (no change): Star midfielder Javier Aquino was subbed off with an ankle injury in Tigres' scoreless draw against Cruz Azul. Without him, Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti will have to...

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says keeping a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Palermo was paramount for his side. It must be acknowledged: Juventus are playing below expectations. Bereft of fluidity, creativity and a clear identity, Massimiliano Allegri may be blessed with great individuals, but he is struggling to create a great unit. The injuries do not help, and in midfield Juve have suffered great losses in that Claudio Marchisio is hurt and Paul Pogba has departed for Manchester United. Their absences have left a void that Allegri has struggled to fill, to find the balance required to help release a...

Zinedine Zidane says he was thinking about Real Madrid's next match when he subbed Cristiano Ronaldo against Las Palmas. ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson pick who will win on Tuesday in the Champions League. Real Madrid looked to have the three points in the bag, until a late equalizer sent Las Palmas into a frenzy, and split the points. Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos said that Tuesday's Champions League Group F game at Borussia Dortmund will be a good test and way to judge how the competition holders are set for this new season. Madrid are unbeaten so far in 2016-17 -- but have drawn their two most recent games at home to Villarreal and away at Las Palmas to see their lead cut in La Liga. Zinedine Zidane's side were also 1-0 down in their opening UCL game at home to Sporting Lisbon -- only to come back to win 2-1 with two late...

Zinedine Zidane says he was thinking about Real Madrid's next match when he subbed Cristiano Ronaldo against Las Palmas. Real Madrid looked to have the three points in the bag, until a late equalizer sent Las Palmas into a frenzy, and split the points. Las Palmas continued their hot La Liga form, scoring late in the second-half to split the points with Real Madrid. Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has played down talk of a rift with galactico Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Tuesday's Champions League Group F game at Borussia Dortmund -- saying the Portuguese is an "intelligent" person who knows his coach makes decisions for the benefit of the team. Ronaldo has scored just twice in four games played so far this season, including a fine free kick late in the 2-1 UCL opening game win at home to Sporting Lisbon, after joining preseason training late due to a knee...

Mauricio Pochettino remains uncertain of Harry Kane's status, and stresses the importance of his players' commitment. MOSCOW, Russia -- Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham have received "very positive" news about Harry Kane's ankle injury, but again refused to put a timeframe on the striker's recovery. Kane was stretched off in Spurs' 1-0 win over Sunderland on Sept. 18, but Pochettino would not say for how long he would be out after an initial scan revealed ankle ligament damage. Initial reports claimed Kane would miss six to eight weeks but, speaking in Moscow ahead of Tuesday's Champions League match against CSKA,...

Les Reed, right, believes a quota system would only hurt English footballers' chances to compete for spots. Former Football Association technical director Les Reed has warned a foreign player quota could hinder rather than help English footballers' progress. The country is still in a process of reassessment after Roy Hodgson's men suffered a galling Euro 2016 last-16 exit to Iceland, while the backdrop has shifted markedly following Brexit. The move to leave the European Union led prospective Manchester mayor Andy Burnham to suggest a "quota" on foreign players in the opening address of the Soccerex Global...

Prince Ali bin Hussein has blasted FIFA for ending its anti-racism task force. Former FIFA vice president Prince Ali bin Hussein of Jordan has attacked the decision to disband the FIFA anti-racism task force as "ridiculous" and "shameful." In a statement posted on Twitter, Prince Ali described FIFA's stance that the task force had completed its mission as "incredibly worrying." FIFA's decision was communicated in a letter to the task force's members this weekend and then reiterated by new secretary general Fatma Samoura at the Soccerex conference in Manchester on Monday. Samoura,...

Stephane Sessegnon spent five years in England but now returns to Ligue 1. Montpellier signed free agent midfielder Stephane Sessegnon to a two-year contract on Tuesday. Sessegnon, 32, had been linked to a move to Burnley, but instead returns to Ligue 1 for the first time since he left Paris Saint-Germain in 2011.

Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique asserted that their win over Sporting Gijon was not as easy as the dominant result seems. Barcelona received five goals from four different players and cruised to a 5-0 win over Gijon without Lionel Messi. As Spain celebrated its 2010 World Cup win, goalkeeper Pepe Reina placed a Barcelona shirt on Cesc Fabregas and proclaimed him the future of the Catalan club. It had become a question of when, not if the midfielder would be freed by Arsenal and allowed to return to his home on the Costa Brava in northeastern Catalunya. Unsurprisingly, one year later, he was presented on the Camp Nou pitch, the future of the club becoming its present, too. Six years on, a similar campaign is underway to bring another...

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side could have converted more chances against Middlesbrough. Son Heung-Min was pleased with his brace, but feels Spurs should do better with converting their chances. The week ahead could define the season for Tottenham Hotspur. Mauricio Pochettino's team have an arduous, 3,500-mile round trip to Russia to play CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday and then return home for a crucial league match against Manchester City five days later. It is too early to suggest that Sunday's encounter at White Hart Lane will be a Premier League title decider but the showdown of the only remaining unbeaten teams in the division will test Tottenham's mettle. Pochettino's...
