Corrigan: Barca's star men come good

La Liga

Walcott, Ozil and Rosicky stand out in Arsenal win over Brighton in FA Cup

West Ham, Aston Villa and Arsenal walk away with fourth-round FA Cup wins a day after three top sides were defeated by lower-league opposition.

BRIGHTON, England -- Three quick thoughts on Arsenal's 3-2 win at Brighton in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday afternoon.

1. Arsenal on a mission

It didn't fit with the shock patterns of this FA Cup weekend, but Arsenal's 3-2 win over Brighton and Hove Albion does suggest something might be building for their season. Arsene Wenger's side seemed so assured from the outset after last week's mood-changing 2-0 win over Manchester City and had what must be one of its smoothest attacking performances...

1. Bradford shock sorry Chelsea

Jose Mourinho said he would be in disgrace if he lost this tie. Such a fate now awaits him. "I am ashamed," he admitted straight afterwards, also affirming that this was the worst defeat of his managerial career with a simple "yes" when the question was asked.

Two goals clear, then 3-2 down, then 4-2. Bradford...

Leicester's FA Cup comeback stuns Tottenham

Leicester City knocked out Tottenham Hotspur with a 2-1 win in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Leicester's 2-1 win vs. Tottenham in the FA Cup fourth round Saturday.

1. Leicester finally get what they deserve

Unlike so many of the teams who have propped up the Premier League in recent years, Leicester City aren't actually that bad. They have shape, discipline, pace and determination. What they don't have is luck.

All too often, they are beaten by a single goal, compromised by a solitary mistake or held back by an opponent's heroic moment of defiance. For so long,...

Manchester United given a run for their money by Cambridge

ESPN FC's Craig Burley contends that this poor display from the Red Devils is a sign that tough times are on the way.

CAMBRIDGE, England -- Three thoughts from Manchester United's 0-0 draw with Cambridge United in the FA Cup fourth round.

1. Back to Old Trafford

Louis van Gaal was unhappy. Manchester United fans were unhappy. This was not a night that went in any way to plan. Manchester United may now be the second-biggest earners in football, as announced by Deloitte this week, but Cambridge United, the lowest-ranked team left in the FA Cup, gave them a run for all that money. A team of free transfers held...

Manchester United-Cambridge tie incredibly headed for Old Trafford

ESPN FC's Craig Burley contends that this poor display from the Red Devils is a sign that tough times are on the way.

CAMBRIDGE, England -- "If you're going to Old Trafford clap your hands," sang a rowdy group of Cambridge United supporters among the last to spill out of the Abbey Stadium on Friday night. Their voices were swelled by their team's huge achievement.

As the home of Cambridge University, one of British education's highest and most venerable seats of learning, the East Anglian city's usual sports are punting down the River Cam, or cycling, the chosen mode of transport for the 18,000 students who swell...

BARCELONA -- Three things from the Camp Nou as Lionel Messi's late penalty saw it finish Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid in Wednesday night's Copa del Rey quarterfinal first leg.

1. Messi penalty decides tight and tense game

A surprisingly fast and intense start from Barcelona blitzed Atletico in their La Liga meeting here 10 days ago. Diego Simeone's side shocked Real Madrid in their Copa last 16 return game last week, with the tie's key goal coming inside the opening 60 seconds. This was more...
