Sergio Aguero the Premier League's best and ready to spark title surge

Sergio Aguero is as good as Luis Suarez, according to new Manchester City teammate Raheem Sterling.

Should you take on the considerable challenge of trying to list each Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Season since 1992-93, don't bother entering Sergio Aguero's name. In four seasons of eligibility, he has yet to make the grade.

It's a glaring error of omission for Aguero, who could easily lay claim to being the best striker in England throughout his four years at Manchester City, with 79 goals in just 122 Premier League matches. He has a scoring rate of 111.5 minutes per goal...

Arsenal flirting with crisis again after unconvincing Premier League start

The ESPN FC panel take a look at Arsenal's current squad and discuss whether Olivier Giroud is a strong enough starting striker to take them to a title.

Premier League Spotlight previews the weekend's fixtures, highlighting the key points to keep an eye on.

Weekend fixtures

Newcastle vs. Arsenal
Aston Villa vs. Sunderland
Bournemouth vs. Leicester
Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace
Liverpool vs. West Ham
Man City vs. Watford
Stoke vs. West Brom
Tottenham vs. Everton

Southampton vs. Norwich
Swansea vs. Man Utd

Battle of the Weekend: Newcastle vs. Arsenal

Arsenal always seem one dodgy result away from a crisis. But actually, on the evidence of Monday's 0-0 draw with Liverpool, the margin for the emergency glass to be shattered is 45 minutes, rather than a full 90. The state of the Gunners' performance in the first half at the Emirates was alarming and they were only saved by the excellence of Petr...

Brasilia FC bring Copa Sudamericana progress to Brazil's capital

Serie D side Brasilia are earning respect for Brazil's capital football clubs after shockingly making it into the round of 16 in the Copa Sudamericana.

A team from Brazil's capital is embarking on an international adventure. On Tuesday night Brasilia qualified for the last 16 of the Copa Sudamericana, South America's equivalent of the Europa League. After a 0-0 draw in the first leg, they won 2-0 away to fellow Brazilians Goias.

This is a remarkable result. Goias are not one of the giants of Brazilian football, but they are a first division club and they made it all the way to the final of the Sudamericana five years ago, where they were only beaten...

Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City lead the Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno gives his take on the slow starts for both Barcelona and Real Madrid and believes there should be more concern at the Bernabeu than at Camp Nou.

They're back! Shaka Hislop returns with his first Power Rankings of the 2015-16 season.

1. Barcelona 

They had mixed fortunes in the Super Cups -- winning the UEFA version but losing the Spanish -- but Barca got their Liga season off to a winning start and remain the team to beat both in Spain and in Europe. Their squad will be tested over the first half of the season especially, though.

2. Bayern Munich

After cruising to a 5-0 win on the opening day of the Bundesliga season, Bayern managed...

Premier League transfer window needs and squad assessments

Despite insisting that goalkeeper David de Gea will remain at the club, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has once again left him out of the squad for a Champions League appearance.

With a week remaining in the transfer window, the clubs of the Premier League still have plenty of work to do. Here's what each club still needs to address...


What they've got: Petr Cech and a fistful of dreams that a decent goalkeeper, and a decent goalkeeper alone, will be enough to win the title.

What they need: A little more attention to the spine might be handy and of course, there's the need for a better centre-forward than Olivier Giroud. We have seen the absurd Karim Benzema...

Swansea might be English football's smartest team in the transfer market

Garry Monk has overseen plenty of clever transfer business since taking over as Swansea manager.

They could be billed as "best buyers" against "biggest spenders." When Swansea City and Manchester United meet on Sunday, it is with contrasting approaches in the transfer market and different strike rates. United have been outspent by their neighbours Manchester City this summer but have paid out some £230 million in transfer and loan fees, which is more than anyone else in the Premier League, over the last 15 months.

While that is a fact, any such title like the savviest operators in...
