Arsenal stars Giroud, Sanchez, Ramsey sport retro shirts of past title-winners

Arsenal look to be in a strong position to challenge for honours this season -- the club are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions and sit level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City.

And in an attempt to improve their chances of success, Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey are looking for inspiration from the Gunners' illustrious history by modelling retro shirts associated with trophy wins from days gone by.

Giroud sports the classic red strip worn by the 1970-71...

Liga MX Talking Points: Players Juan Carlos Osorio should consider vs. U.S.

Cesar Montes, 19, is one of a few under-the-radar Liga MX-based players that Juan Carlos Osorio should consider.

With just over two weeks to go until Mexico opens the Hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying against the United States in Columbus, Ohio on Nov. 11, we asked our writers Tom Marshall, Nayib Moran and Cesar Hernandez which Liga MX players may be getting overlooked by manager Juan Carlos Osorio.

Which Liga MX player deserves a shot against the U.S.?

Cesar Montes, DF, Monterrey

Monterrey center-back Cesar Montes may only be 19 years old and still filling into his 1.91 meter frame, but he has shown remarkable consistency since breaking into Los Rayados'...

PSG's Jese deserves chance against Lille at Angel Di Maria's expense

The key stats ahead of the weekend's Ligue 1 action, including an embarrassing look at Angel Di Maria's finishing.

Paris Saint-Germain travel north to face Lille on Friday, but it's not certain if Angel Di Maria will be a part of Unai Emery's starting lineup.

The Argentina international is struggling for form with club and country this season and has only shown fleeting glimpses of the player who was enthralling to watch at times in Ligue 1 and the Champions League last campaign.

With just one goal and four assists from 12 matches across all competitions so far this term, Di Maria has come in for criticism, and...

Vardy, Leicester still searching for last season's away form

Claudio Ranieri believes Leicester are due to turn it around after a stretch of poor play, but face a tough Tottenham club.
With Tottenham about to face Leicester City, do Spurs need to change their approach if they are to score in open play?
Spurs are unbeaten this season, but will Robert Huth once again propel Leicester over Mauricio Pochettino's side?

Leicester City have fond memories of their last trip to White Hart Lane. Robert Huth scored the game's only goal with a header as the Foxes claimed a rare three points from north London.  

At the time City didn't realise quite how crucial the win was, but Tottenham Hotspur would, as Leicester's closest challengers for most of the run in -- although Arsenal eventually pipped them for second place on the final day.  

The win back in January was a typical Leicester display:...

Gonzalo Higuain's "betrayal" adds fuel to Napoli's fire as they visit Juventus

After the 10th round of Serie A, Gab Marcotti dissects Juventus' win over Sampdoria and Frank de Boer's status at Inter.

Carlos Tevez joined Juventus the same summer Gonzalo Higuain moved to Napoli. Inevitably it started a debate about who had got themselves the better striker. "A true Argentine doesn't play in Turin!" declared a banner welcoming Higuain to Naples. The implication was that by not following in the footsteps of Diego Maradona, Tevez could never be considered as such. Just try telling that to Juventini and the people of Fuerte Apache, the Buenos Aires barrio where he grew up.

Guardiola vs. Pulis: A true battle of wits

Pep Guardiola says Man City's six-match winless run is part of coaching, but is confident his side can recover.
The ESPN FC crew assess Manchester City's poor performances and how they'll have to improve before tough fixtures.
With Manchester City now winless in six matches, Stewart Robson says questions could be asked of Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola is not the type of manager who will blindly subscribe to clichés about English football, as a comment at a recent press conference demonstrated.

When asked if the intensity of the Premier League harmed English teams' prospects in Europe, Guardiola questioned whether, in fact, the intensity in England is any different to Spain or Germany.

"I hear a lot of times about the intensity in the Premier League when none of you have been in La Liga or the Bundesliga to know how intense...
