Liverpool's current crisis could be costly for Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers rues the lack of confidence in his side following their 3-1 drubbing by Crystal Palace.

LONDON -- Crystal Palace in May signaled the death of a dream. This time, Liverpool's reality check was perhaps more brutal. Back then, the Reds and Brendan Rodgers could celebrate exceeding expectations, but this result demonstrated this will be a season on a rather different edge.

Three straight Premier League losses in a row, four in total; results that can only point to a mounting crisis, and the performances during those matches spell out a yet bleaker picture.

"If anything I'm disappointed...

Another weekend, another record-setting performance for Lionel Messi. Okay, the master doesn't do it every time he plays, but in Barcelona's 5-1 win vs. Sevilla, Messi broke Telmo Zarra's all-time La Liga goals record of 251 with panache: He netted a hat trick to put his total at 253.

Top Tenner: Lionel Messi's best Barcelona goals in La Liga

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson discusses Lionel Messi breaking Telmo Zarra's all-time La Liga goal-scoring record with a hat-trick against Sevilla.

Now that Lionel Messi has finally broken the Spanish La Liga goal-scoring record, here are 10 of his best strikes from down the years.

Note: These are all, of course, goals scored only in La Liga.

10. The first -- vs. Albacete, May 2005 

Let us start at the beginning. Messi made his competitive debut for Barcelona in October 2004, coming on as a substitute for Deco against Espanyol, but was very much eased into the first-team -- making only one start in the rest of that season -- in a pointless...

Five questions in advance of Arsenal vs. Manchester United

The Premier League is back and we kick off with Arsenal against Manchester United; expect one heck of a goal-fest. Anthony Richardson and Ian Fiveankles preview the big game and speak to United's Angel Di Maria.

Nick Miller looks at five key talking points regarding Saturday's clash between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates.

1. Who is going to play in defence for Manchester United?

United manager Louis van Gaal must be wondering what he did to anger whichever cruel god has cursed his Manchester United side this season. United's defence has been shaky at the best of times since he took over, but Van Gaal will go into Saturday's game with Marcos Rojo definitely out, and major doubts hanging...

Ligue 1: Why We Watch

He may not be the best player in world football but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in a class of his own.

With the latest international break coming to a close and the frenzy of the club season about to resume, we asked some of our writers to chronicle what they love, both past and present, about the leagues they follow. It's #WhyWeWatchFootball. Julien Laurens tells us about his love for Ligue 1.

I can still remember my first Ligue 1 game. 1987. I was just seven years old. My dad took me to the Parc des Princes for PSG vs. Marseille. The home side won 4-0 and I was hooked; since then, I've yet...

Talking football with Xabi Alonso

ESPN FC's Raf Honigstein sits down with Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso where he talks about his move from Real Madrid and the similarities between the Bundesliga and Premier League.

It's sounds odd to call a World Cup, European championship and Champions League winner a revelation, but that's exactly what Xabi Alonso has been since swapping the white of Real Madrid with the red and white of Bayern Munich this summer. The Spaniard has emerged as the most influential player in the Bundesliga in the space of only three months.

ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein sat down with the 32-year-old at Bayern's club centre last week to talk tactics, manager Pep Guardiola and Bavarian architecture.
