Diego Simeone and Jorge Sampaoli clash may never have happened

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why he believes Atletico Madrid will 'win big' over Sevilla on Sunday.

Two of world football's most highly-rated managers clash on Sunday as Diego Simeone's La Liga leading Atletico Madrid visit Jorge Sampaoli's high-flying Sevilla.

The game at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan will be the first time the two Argentine coaches have ever faced off over 90 minutes. But almost six years ago Sampaoli and Simeone shared a "sliding doors" moment which marked both their lives and also impacted hugely on the development of both club and international football ever since.

Jose Mourinho returns to face Chelsea, Manchester City's Southampton test

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop tries his hand at Premier League predictor, but does he expect a stalemate at the Bridge?

Jose Mourinho returns to former club Chelsea with Manchester United on Sunday having struggled to break down Liverpool in the 0-0 draw at Anfield, but seeing his side score four against Feyenoord.

Arsenal are flying high after their demolition of Ludogorets, which was their seventh win in a row in all competitions, and will hope add to that streak against struggling Middlesbrough, while leaders Manchester City take on Southampton hoping to get back on track after their humbling at Barcelona.

Mourinho's Stamford Bridge return; Arsenal try not to pull an Arsenal

What tactics will Chelsea field in order to beat Manchester United?

W2W4 previews the weekend's Premier League fixtures and highlights five key storylines.

How will Jose Mourinho approach his return to Stamford Bridge?

If nothing else, it will be interesting to see what sort of mindset Jose Mourinho arrives back at Chelsea with on Sunday. Against Liverpool on Monday his primary aim seemed to be to stop his opponents -- a perfectly sensible, if not massively entertaining strategy. But that was against a team that looked like they were hitting their attacking stride...

Atletico Madrid top Power Rankings; Juve stay second, Arsenal up to third

La Liga features several top six match-ups this weekend. Find out who comes out on top in our La Liga predictor.
Paul Mariner and Mark Donaldson talk whether Arsenal have the team chemistry this year to win the League.
Atletico's narrow win at Rostov keeps their momentum going on all fronts as they remain top of our charts.

After some big wins for Arsenal and Real Madrid, Shaka Hislop has been forced to reshuffle his Power Rankings once again.

1. Atletico Madrid (no change)

Two wins, achieved in different ways, keep Atletico on top. First, Diego Simeone's side swept to a 7-1 victory vs. Granada last weekend, with Yannick Carrasco scoring a hat trick. The Belgian netted again in the Champions League to beat Rostov 1-0.

2. Juventus (no change)

It was a week of contrasting fortunes for Gianluigi Buffon. First,...

Time catching up with prodigies Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas

Alison Bender and Don Hutchison discuss the next steps in Wayne Rooney's career.
Shaka Hislop is not convinced by Cesc Fabregas this season and believes he's no longer the player he was two years ago.
Craig Burley has no sympathy for Wayne Rooney and says better players simply have taken his place.

They are the prodigies who are starting to resemble footballing pensioners, the supposed superstars who tend to be substitutes. When Cesc Fabregas and Wayne Rooney meet on Sunday, it will surely be as big names with bit-part roles at best. Barring late cameos, Chelsea against Manchester United will probably proceed without them.

Constants in such glamour games may be able to commiserate with one another. They have been downgraded and demoted, their deteriorating fortunes broadcast to a global audience...

Ludogorets wing wizard Jonathan Cafu destined for bigger things in Europe

Steve Nicol and Jason Dasey predict the outcomes of all the best matches on Wednesday, including Pep's return to the Camp Nou.

Jonathan Cafu has always aspired to emulate Neymar, and even the Barcelona superstar would be proud to score some of the goals the 25-year-old wizard from Ludogorets has netted in the Champions League this season.

The first work of art was produced against Red Star Belgrade in July. Cafu received the ball near the halfway line and made fun of the defence, passing everyone including the goalkeeper, as though he was Lionel Messi. A week later, in the return leg in Serbia, the Brazilian netted an even...
