Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: clasico promises goals aplenty

The ESPN FC team debates who will be victorious in the upcoming match between the world's elite, Real Madrid or Barcelona.

It would be naive to deny that the rise of the clasico to become the biggest and most important game in world football has nothing to do with vastly expanded television coverage in recent years or with the many thousands of online columns, magazine articles or newspaper coverage around the globe.

Clearly, that's a major factor, but the reason for that voracious global hunger, its single defining quality is … quality.

All of Spain's football communities, and many of the world's clasico outposts,...

Weekend battle: Manchester United vs. Chelsea

There is an apparent inevitability that Manchester United will be shamed at Old Trafford (not for first time in the past year) in Sunday's match against Chelsea. Things could indeed get ugly, for the bigger the club, the harder they fall. It comes down to just how cruel Jose Mourinho wants to be -- certainly,...

McGeady frustrates again as Everton's old guard salvages Lille draw

Everton remain top of Europa League Group H after playing out a 0-0 stalemate at Lille.

As the final whistle sounded on Everton's 0-0 draw in Lille, it was left to events off the pitch to provide the incident and drama lacking on it, with the heavy-handed approach of Lille police threatening to emerge as the dominant story from this Europa League adventure.

Stood inside the Australian Bar in the main square when a collection of Lille fans attacked it, the episode played out like a scene from a low-budget football hooligan film. From the attackers' attempts to smash the glass windows...

Real Madrid prepare to sign Javier Hernandez to permanent deal

With three goals in just four league outings, Chicharito has convinced Real Madrid to loosen the purse strings...

Wait, the transfer window is closed? That's news to the Transfer Talk crew. There are still plenty of transfer-related rumours around the world!

Carlo signs off on Chicharito

After just four appearances in their famous white kit, Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid have been sufficiently impressed with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez to want to tie him down to a permanent deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Daily Express says that there is an option-to-buy clause in the Manchester United man's loan deal...

Clinical Kane and exquisite Lamela highlight Spurs' Europa romp

Erik Lamela scored one of the finest goals ever seen at White Hart Lane on a night in which Tottenham's hat-trick hero, Harry Kane, ended the thrashing of Asteras Tripolis in goal.

It will be Erik Lamela's first half strike that will be remembered. A perfect rabona with his left leg curled behind his right from the edge of the area that had the White Hart Lane crowd first open-mouthed and then on its feet. There won't be a better goal scored all season.

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, though, will take far more pleasure from the 5-1 victory over Greek side Asteras Tripoli, that not only puts his side in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa...

The red-hot Sergio Aguero of Manchester City is a logical choice to be a fantasy captain.

Saturday, October 25

West Ham (4-1-3) vs. Manchester City (5-2-1)
Diafra Sakho (6.1) is on a rampage with five goals in his last five games.
