On a weekend when favorites Barcelona and Real Madrid earned hard-fought wins and Las Palmas continued to impress, here is what we learned from La Liga ahead of the international break.

Morata on target for Real Madrid

Alvaro Morata scored his first goal for Real Madrid since returning to his former club this summer from Juventus in Saturday's 2-1 home win over Celta Vigo.

Manuel Pellegrini at Hebei China Fortune reflects CSL's foreign focus

Speaking before his appointment in China, Manuel Pellegrini said his next project needed to be progressive.

After Real Madrid, the Chilean went to Qatar-owned Malaga, United Arab Emirates-owned Manchester City and the Chilean has now arrived in China, the latest big spender on the football block.

But spare a thought for Li Tie, the man Pellegrini replaces at Hebei China Fortune. The former Everton and Sheffield United player is still just 39 and was developing into China's most promising young...

Simon Mignolet's solid day, Swansea woe leads weekend's Heroes & Villains

He was there to punch away corners, he was there to palm away free-kicks, and when he made a world class save from Toby Alderweireld's second half header, he could have been forgiven for doing a lap of honour around White...

Klopp's Tottenham test, Tigers for Mourinho as Wenger battles Hornets

ESPN FC's Ale Moreno and Mark Donaldson predict week 3's Premier League fixtures.

Liverpool's trip to Tottenham is the headline match from the final round of Premier League fixtures before the international break. Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to bounce back following their shock 2-0 defeat at Burnley last time out.

Elsewhere, Manchester United travel to Hull City, who are surprisingly defending a 100 percent record in the Premier League so far. That's not the case for Leicester, though, with the defending champions hosting Swansea still searching for their first win of...
