Four key areas of Barcelona's minor 'crisis' that Luis Enrique must address

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains where Barcelona's vulnerabilities lie following their 2-1 loss at Sevilla.

It's a useful litmus test as to how things stand at FC Barcelona when you hear Luis Enrique release a huge sigh of welcome at the arrival of the international break.

Many coaches and players yearn for it. At smaller, less-successful clubs, it's a chance for a mini-holiday. Players get to muck around, spend time with their families, meet sponsorship commitments (aka make more money), and there's a regular European exodus for four or five days to the beaches of Doha.

At the largest, most successful...

Man United's Morgan Schneiderlin should be a key player in starting XI

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says an average Manchester United side just couldn't keep up with a reformed Arsenal squad in this week's Premier League action.

It might be a coincidence that Morgan Schneiderlin didn't feature in either of Manchester United's recent defeats against PSV Eindhoven and Arsenal, or it could prove what his value is to the side.

Either way, it is clear that manager Louis van Gaal didn't believe it was a good idea to start the 25-year-old in the shocking 3-0 rout at the hands of the Gunners last weekend. Instead, he went for Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who have a combined age of 65, to try to press high and interrupt...

Dybala, El Ghazi, Gnoukouri, Minamino, Semedo - Five uncapped stars to watch

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol discuss the recent England call-ups of Danny Ings and Dele Alli. While Nicol understands Ings' inclusion, he cannot quite understand Alli's.

England manager Roy Hodgson caused a bit of stir when he called up 19-year-old Dele Alli to his squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania this month. But the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is not the only promising young player set to get his first taste of senior international action over the next week or so.

Here are five other young and uncapped call-ups to look out for during the international break.

Paulo Dybala | 21 | Forward | Argentina

1. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

After scoring one in his first seven Premier League games of the season, Aguero hit form in a big way to net five times -- in a 20-minute spell -- vs. Newcastle. The haul matched the all-time...

Jose Mourinho's insistence on control at Chelsea is becoming a weakness

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti rates the likelihood that Jose Mourinho will leave Chelsea in 2015.
The club released a statement today saying that Jose Mourinho has their "full support"

At what point does a blip become a full-blown crisis?

Language in football exists in its own bubble, so obviously a big team losing a few games they were expected to win isn't a crisis in the traditional, wider sense of the word. However, if there is such a thing as a crisis in football, Chelsea are at best tipping toward it. At worst, they're already in the middle of it.

Even Jose Mourinho's staunchest defenders and the most fervent believers in his "mind games" would struggle to explain...

How Brendan Rodgers' relationship with Liverpool owners FSG soured

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol addresses the recent news of Liverpool manger Brendan Rodgers' managerial termination, and notes that the news was to be expected.

It started with a Year Zero philosophy and ended with nothing but regrets. Brendan Rodgers has left Liverpool in worse shape than he found it in the spring of 2012. Success for the club and the American owners, Fenway Sports Group, seems more remote than ever. A significant overhaul of Anfield is needed.

When Kenny Dalglish was summoned to Boston and dismissed to make way for Rodgers, Liverpool were holders of the League Cup and could boast two genuine stars in the team in the shape of Steven Gerrard...
