Swansea hoping to beat the odds vs. Manchester City

Swansea City manager Garry Monk spoke ahead of his side's trip to the Etihad Stadium as they prepare to face Manchester City in the Premier League.

Manchester City at the Etihad should always be a special fixture for Swansea. It was the Swans first fixture as a Premier League team, even though it ended in a 4-0 defeat. That same game was also significant for Manchester City.

It marked Sergio Aguero's introduction to his new team and the league. The Argentinian striker had joined that summer in a 38 million pound deal from Atletico Madrid and came off the bench to score twice.

Brendan Rodgers, the Swans manager of the time, remarked that Swansea's...

Lazio's master tactician Pioli sure to test Juventus

Juve's Massimiliano Allegri, right, will once again match wits against Lazio head coach Stefano Pioli, left.
Juve's Massimiliano Allegri, right, will once again match wits against Lazio head coach Stefano Pioli, left.

"I think Pioli's squad might put Allegri in difficulty," explained Corriere dello Sport writer Piero Torri. One is inclined to agree.

Torri is hardly the most objective journalist. A man who has consistently taken swipes at the Bianconeri, calling them 'arrogant' for their failure to realise how much they benefit from refereeing errors, he disagreed with Antonio Conte that the team he constructed in Turin was extraordinary. However, he is certainly made one accurate judgment and that is that Stefano...

Tottenham out of touch with their fans

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley questions Damien Comolli's data, including his claims that statistical findings led to Gareth Bale's success as a winger.

People who work at football clubs -- whether it's as a chairman, manager, or a player -- are generally hopelessly out of touch with the opinions of the fans who line their pockets.

Never is this more true than at Tottenham Hotspur. The club's owners have been discussing whether Spurs should play their home matches at the home of the MK Dons in Milton Keynes while their new stadium is being built. These formal talks would suggest that they're pretty set on the idea, despite the fact that the proposed...

Philipp Lahm's fractured ankle forces Bayern Munich to look at depth

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has been ruled out for three months with a broken ankle.

Losing someone of Philipp Lahm's caliber would be a crushing blow to every single club on the planet. Even to this buoyant Bayern Munich side, unbeaten in all competitions this season, losing their skipper and talisman is more than a slight inconvenience.

The 31-year-old went under the knife on Thursday morning after his untimely ankle fracture suffered in training on Tuesday which will rule him out for three months. He will spend a few days in hospital after having a surgical plate and screw...

Injuries, fixtures give Mourinho a selection quandary against Baggies

New Chelsea defender Filipe Luis says the Blues are very different from his former side, Atletico Madrid.

The international fixtures might be over for this calendar year, but for Chelsea there is still much to accomplish before the bell tolls on 2014.

A start to the season that has exceeded expectations has all Chelsea fans jabbering about the potential of the current team, and that in itself creates its own pressures as victories become almost demanded rather than hoped for. No longer is this campaign about challenging for the Premier League title until the final whistle on the final day, it is now...

Enrique's Barca to answer key questions against Sevilla

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti doesn't think Lionel Messi will be leaving Barcelona any time soon.

Following yet another seemingly endless international break, Cules are counting the very few hours left until the ball starts rolling again at the Camp Nou. After a fortnight in which the media has been firmly focused on off-the-pitch issues, manager Luis Enrique will certainly be delighted to have the chance to take another step forward towards refining his team in the hope of silencing his growing number of critics.

The most heated talking point ahead of the home match against Sevilla on Saturday...
