Top Tenner: Own goals

Santiago Vergini scored a remarkable own goal for Sunderland at the weekend.

On Saturday, Santiago Vergini managed an incredible own goal as his side Sunderland slumped to an 8-0 defeat at Southampton. Inspired by the Argentine's calamity, Nick Miller has selected 10 of the most eye-opening own goals.

10) Gershom Cox, Aston Villa v Wolves, 1888

As ever, we should start at the beginning. The first ever recorded own goal in English football history came in 1888, and perhaps as a portent of how magnificently silly this sport was to become, it was for a long time believed...

#FCtalkingpoints: Balotelli, Aguero, Sunderland, Messi and Bayern Munich

Mario Balotelli struggled for Liverpool. Will he ultimately flourish at Anfield?

After another action-packed weekend, there's plenty to discuss. Here are five hot-button topics that have been generating debate -- we want to know what you think!

Vote and comment below or on Twitter, using the hashtag #FCtalkingpoints.

It's now six Premier League games without a goal for Mario Balotelli, who was so poor in Liverpool's win at QPR that club blogger David Usher awarded him 2/10 in his player ratings!

Will Mario Balotelli prove to be a success at Liverpool?

No such trouble for Sergio Aguero, who scored all four of Manchester City's...

Top Tenner: Biggest Wins in Premier League history

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman noted he was quite surprised with the 8-nil score line against Sunderland, but was quite pleased with his side's ambition to score more goals.

After Southampton's 8-0 destruction of a woeful Sunderland outfit on Saturday, now seems like an ideal time to take a look back on the Top Ten Biggest Wins in Premier League history...

10) Arsenal 7-0 Everton, May 2005

There have been six 7-0 wins in the history of the Premier League. A couple have been fairly joyless pummellings (Manchester City 7-0 Norwich in November 2013 and Chelsea 7-0 Stoke in April 2010), and a couple have been by Arsenal -- one a drubbing of Middlesbrough in January 2006...

Pressure grows on Walter Mazzarri at Inter Milan ahead of Napoli reunion

Walter Mazzarri's Inter returned to their winning ways in Thursday's Europa League victory over Qarabag.
Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri faces his former club on Sunday.

Encounters with the past can have a decisive bearing on a person's future and, for Inter coach Walter Mazzarri, Sunday's game against Napoli is no different.

On the face of it, the 53-year-old is in no immediate danger. Financial circumstances mean another defeat would unlikely bring the first dismissal of his career even if (the expensive) Roberto Mancini and (the cheap) Walter Zenga have been mentioned.

Furthermore, Inter's new owner, Erick Thohir, is more patient than his predecessor, Massimo...

Raheem Sterling row, Luis Suarez regret, Serbia vs. Albania, Ebola fears

The FC crew put a bow on the soap opera that went on between England manager Roy Hodgson and Liverpool.


1. A tiring saga (Monday, Oct. 13)

Last week it was Arsenal (and to a lesser extent Chelsea) who took their turn to become embroiled in one of those club-vs.-country rows that regularly crop up during international breaks. Since Monday it has been Liverpool's turn, with England manager Roy Hodgson's claim that Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling said he was "tired" and "jaded" ahead of Sunday's win in Estonia -- in which he made an impact as a substitute -- dividing opinion sharply...

Top Tenner: Instant impacts in Premier League

In his Premier League debut, Chelsea's Nemanja Matic, right, completely locked up Manchester City's Yaya Tour in the Blues' 1-0 win last season at the Etihad.

10. Fabrizio Ravanelli

Not all of the players on this list managed to extend their brilliant starts for very long, burning brightly but briefly. For some of them, their instant brilliance didn't even do their team a huge amount of good in the long run, and it's the latter category that Fabrizio Ravanelli falls into. Ravanelli scored a remarkable hat trick on his debut for Middlesbrough, after making the curious journey from the Champions League final with Juventus to the industrial North-East,...
