Three points: Man City drop two vital Champs League points in Moscow

City give up a late penalty as 2 second-half goals from Moscow see them earn a point in front of an empty stadium.

Three observations from Manchester City's 2-2  draw at CSKA Moscow.

1. City have no margin for error

The bare facts are that Manchester City have played three games in this season's Champions League. They have won none. They have three more to go, and if they don't win all three, the probability is that they will exit the competition rather ignominiously. It all threatens to be a repeat of their 2012-13 European campaign when they were English champions, aiming for an improvement on the continent,...

Who deserves the blame for Manchester United's struggles?

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden says he believes Manchester United will finish in the top four of the Premier League, much to the dismay of former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol.

Manchester United are in decline, and Sir Alex Ferguson has used the publication of his new, updated autobiography to deny that he is to blame. David Moyes told the BBC last week that he thought the club were at fault because they failed to support him last season. You sense that Louis van Gaal couldn't care less who's to blame or what you think, but he definitely won't be accepting responsibility anytime soon either.

Never has it been more true that success has many fathers and failure is an orphan....

Julen Lopetegui's Porto underline doubts over tiki-taka's future

Sporting's victory over Porto in the cup has raised concerns over the team's approach.

A first defeat of the season in October can hardly be described as a disaster, but it has hit home -- and hit home hard. Porto's elimination from the Taca de Portugal at the Estadio do Dragao to rivals Sporting on Saturday meant more than being put in their place by a fellow member of os tres grandes (the nation's perpetual big three). For some, it increased the doubts over Spanish boss Julen Lopetegui that have been gradually germinating in recent weeks.

Even victory over the coach's countrymen,...

Health is the only factor keeping Sergio Aguero away from greatness

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol recaps Manchester City's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad.

Two years ago, in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, Sergio Aguero was asked what was going through his mind in the most important moment of his career so far: those crucial two touches against QPR on the final day of the 2011-12 Premier League season.

His response revealed as much about the general mindset that makes him as it did that title-winning strike.

"You're not really thinking of [what it means]," Aguero said. "In that moment, you're only thinking of scoring. You do it with intensity,...

Clayton, Edwards and Man United's historical English Midlands links

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal talks about his first three months in charge and the ESPN FC crew discusses the upcoming game between West Brom and Manchester United.

Manchester United play in West Bromwich on Monday, the town which is part of an area of the English Midlands known as the "Black Country," which produced Duncan Edwards, one of the club's greatest ever players.

Had the game not been on a weekday evening when motorway traffic will be heavy, more United fans would stop off in nearby Dudley, to pay their respects at his statue in the town centre, his grave in the cemetery or the two stained-glass windows commemorating Edwards in St. Francis' Church.

Colo Colo's Santiago derby win forces Chilean league down to the wire

Jean Beausejour, right, played in England for four years and is now starring for Colo Colo.

There was a glut of South American goals in the Premier League this weekend -- including strikes from the Chilean pair, Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas. Meanwhile, one of their compatriots, a Premier League old boy, scored a vital goal back in their homeland.

Jean Beausejour spent four years in England, between 2010 and 14, split between Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic. With all due respect to these clubs, they are hardly giants of their domestic championship -- in stark contrast to his current...
