Jose Mourinho vs. Pep Guardiola: Man United and Man City manager watch

The ESPN FC crew assess Pep Guardiola's body of work thus far at Manchester City.

Manchester United and Manchester City landed two of the biggest managers in the game this summer. Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will resume their battle in the Premier League and ESPN FC is keeping a close eye on them.

Our correspondents Arindam Rej (United) and Jonathan Smith (City) bring us the latest weekly look at what both men have been saying.

Claudio Marchisio's return a key factor in Juventus' bid to beat Napoli

Massimiliano Allegri defended Gonzalo Higuain as his striker continues to adapt to playing at Juventus.

On Saturday night, Juventus will host Napoli in what should be one of the most intriguing tactical battles of the Serie A season. Yet more than pure tactics, this is a tie that pits beautiful football over impressive discipline, southern passion against business-like precision and Gonzalo Higuain against his former team.

Off the pitch, the melodrama of such a match can and will cause hysteria. Amid the buildup, Napoli have cast themselves as the humble and downtrodden victim who lost their prodigal...

Denis Suarez deserves a shot in Andres Iniesta's absence against Granada

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson make their predictions for Week 10 of the La Liga season.
ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains why the bottle-toss fiasco during Barcelona's match at Valencia has caused a rift in Spain.

Barcelona are preparing for Saturday's game against Granada without their captain Andres Iniesta. The midfielder was taken off in the first half of last weekend's incident-packed win against Valencia with knee ligament damage and will be out for up to eight weeks. He may not play again until the new year.

There are few people that can unite Spanish football fans like Iniesta. The scorer of Spain's winning goal in the 2010 World Cup, he's been given a standing ovation at nearly every domestic stadium....

After being patient, Marco Asensio takes his Real Madrid chance

Jose Mourinho offers an apology, Pep may be under pressure and Asensio is firing on all cylinders for Real Madrid.
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson make their predictions for Week 10 of the La Liga season.
The key stats ahead of the weekend's La Liga action, including an impressive unbeaten run for Zidane's Real Madrid.

A Dutch woman, a Spanish man and their son were walking by the port of Puerto Portals, Mallorca, near where they lived one day when they saw the owner of a yacht moored there. They recognised him immediately and went over to introduce themselves, which was when Maria Gertruida told Florentino Perez that the boy, her nine-year-old son, would play for Real Madrid one day. That was over a decade ago and Marco Asensio Willemsem's mother was right. Sadly, though, she was not there to see it when he was...

Griezmann, Pogba or Kroos: Who would you build your team around?

Franck Ribery came out and asserted that Antoine Griezmann is not a world class player. Is he right?
While Stevie Nicol praises Antoine Griezmann, he doesn't feel he's in the same class as Messi or Ronaldo.
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes Paul Pogba's potential will only be reached when he is utilised in his natural position.

Imagine, for a moment, that you're an ultra-rich soccer fan who has just bought your favourite team. Now you're on the hunt for that proverbial "franchise player," the star around whom your team will revolve for a generation. If money were no object, which player would you recruit, and why?

Oh, and don't pick Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo: we're looking to the future and with those two aged 29 and 31 respectively, they'll only be able to help in the short-term. The same goes for other players...

Borussia Dortmund limp into Ruhr derby vs. Schalke in need of result

Thomas Tuchel explained what a derby like the Ruhr derby means to Dortmund's players and fans alike.

It's the 149th Revierderby between the Ruhr Area's two biggest clubs: Borussia Dortmund and Schalke. While matches between Bayern Munich and Dortmund often draw the most attention, BVB fans carry no greater disdain than they do for the Royal Blues. This derby electrifies the masses in and around the cities of Gelsenkirchen and Dortmund like no other.

When Christian Pulisic was asked what is so special about Dortmund for the club's match-day magazine prior to the match in Ingolstadt, he replied:...
