Arsene Wenger set for scrutiny following Arsenal's latest injury crisis

The ESPN FC crew discuss how Arsenal's latest round of injuries might impact their Premier League title chances.

Arsenal's latest setback at Norwich has left some of their fans questioning whether the navy third kit they wore during their 1-1 draw at Carrow Road might be cursed. Not only did the Gunners fail to win, but they also lost a further three first-team players to injury.

Arsene Wenger is a man of logic and reasoning, but even he must be contemplating the possibility of supernatural influence. Arsenal's inescapable injury hoodoo shows no signs of slowing.

The truth is that the club's injury problems...

Lionel Messi to win Ballon d'Or, but does Ronaldo deserve his place?

FIFA officially release the three footballers in the running for the FIFA Ballon d'Or 2015.

The three-man shortlist for the 2015 FIFA Ballon d'Or has been announced with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo alongside Neymar.

While Messi is likely to walk away with the prize, Ronaldo's place in the final three is more on reputation that anything he's achieved, and he may even lose out to Neymar in the final vote. In truth, Luis Suarez probably deserves a place on the podium more.

Here ESPN FC looks at the three players in with a chance of being named "best in the world," as well as three...

Columbus Crew SC saving their celebrating for MLS Cup

Columbus will be facing Portland in the MLS Cup Final after surviving a scary last few minutes against the NY Red Bulls.
The ESPN FC panel react to Columbus Crew's victory over the NY Red Bulls to reach the MLS Cup Final.

HARRISON, N.J. -- Based solely on their facial expressions following Sunday's decisive second-leg match in the Eastern Conference championship, one might have thought it was the New York Red Bulls -- not Columbus Crew SC -- that had advanced to next week's MLS Cup final in Ohio's capital city.

Red Bulls boss Jesse Marsch smiled broadly as he stepped behind the podium, although it did little to mask the pain of the 2-1 aggregate defeat as he talked, accurately, about the unqualified success his...

Pressure piled on Rudi Garcia as Roma enter another midseason slump

The ESPN FC panel talk Serie A and give their predictions for who they think will win the league.

The worm has turned once again for Roma coach Rudi Garcia following his side's disastrous 2-0 home defeat to Atalanta. The Rome edition of Monday morning's Corriere dello Sport has taken a typically restrained line to the loss, splashing its front page with "Roma needs Ancelotti".

The sports daily has decided that Garcia will be gone if Roma don't beat Torino on Saturday and BATE Borisov in the Champions League the following Wednesday -- they'll likely only need a draw to qualify for the knockout...

David Silva could make his return as Man City set for League Cup rest

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner breaks down a mixed day for Manchester City in their 3-1 win over Southampton.

It's been a tough week for Manchester City, but there was light at the end of the tunnel. The 3-1 victory over Southampton on Saturday held more positives than negatives for Manuel Pellegrini, especially after a setback in the Champions League against Juventus and a horror show against Liverpool seven days earlier.

With rumours continually swirling that Pep Guardiola is being lined up for the managerial position at the Etihad, Pellegrini now has a timely chance to remind the watching world why...

Portland Timbers' adaptability and mentality have taken them to MLS Cup

Catch all the postgame reaction and analysis on the Portland Timbers' defeating FC Dallas to reach the MLS Cup final.

FRISCO, Texas -- Adapt or perish. According to author H.G. Wells, it's "nature's inexorable imperative."

For Portland Timbers manager Caleb Porter, it's an apt description of his approach over the past few months, including his side's 5-3 aggregate triumph over FC Dallas in the Western Conference finals. Now, Portland will contest Sunday's MLS Cup final against Columbus Crew SC.

It's incredible to think that just two months ago, Portland was a candidate to miss the playoffs entirely. Since that...
