Club America, Toluca and Monterrey still atop Liga MX Power Rankings

Oribe Peralta scored for Club America for the first time in more than two months.

Club America had time to stew over the 4-0 loss to Mexico City rival Cruz Azul during the international break. The return to Liga MX action brought an authoritative display and a 2-0 home victory against Monterrey, both of which consolidated America as the early favorite for the Apertura 2014 crown.

Antonio Mohamed perhaps hasn't had the credit he has deserved for gradually shaping Miguel "Piojo" Herrera's already-successful team into his image and, most importantly, keeping everyone onside through...

Gerard Pique to make Man United return, Mou says no to January needs

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that he has cooled his interest in signing free-agent goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
Gerard Pique once called Old Trafford home. If the latest rumours about the Barcelona defender are true, he might be making a Manchester United homecoming very soon.

January will be here before you know it! To tide us over until then, here's today's batch of rumours and gossip.

Pique making United return?

He played only 12 league games for Sir Alex Ferguson during his four seasons with Manchester United, but if the latest from The Daily Star is true, Gerard Pique could pad those stats very soon.

Louis van Gaal and Manchester United are still looking for help on defence (they could have used it on Monday against West Brom). Now, the 27-year-old Pique is tops...

Atletico's interchangeable parts expected to handle Malmo

Diego Simeone was delighted with Atletico Madrid's attacking use of the flanks in their 2-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday.

What do Zenit, Porto, Austria Wien, AC Milan, Barcelona, Chelsea and Juventus all have in common? The answer: They have gone to Vicente Calderon Stadium on a Champions League night and come away without a win. The best result was Chelsea's 0-0 draw, and even that was not enough to see them through over the two legs.

Atletico Madrid do not lose often in front of their home fans. The most recent time -- save for last season's Copa del Rey second leg to Real Madrid, which was mostly an afterthought...

Average Manchester United saved by Marouane Fellaini

The ESPN FC team analyse Manchester United's disappointing performance against West Bromwich Albion.

Louis van Gaal's team have yet to win away in the league, a record that at least the beleaguered David Moyes could point to with some pride last season. Here, though they scored two very fine goals, they were undone with disconcerting ease on the break and struggled for fluency throughout. A point at the Hawthorns, on balance, is not a poor result, but it is not the stuff of which pushes for UEFA Champions League places are made -- particularly with such stern challenges immediately ahead.

Three Points: West Brom vs. Manchester United

Manchester United fell behind twice but fought back to earn a 2-2 draw on the road at The Hawthorns.

WEST BROMWICH, England -- A trio of observations on West Brom and Manchester United's 2-2 draw in the Premier League.

1. Blind saves blushes

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United were yet to score beyond the 63rd minute of any Premier League game. Lead by then and you had the formula for success against the misfiring millionaires.

This time, though, Daley Blind bucked the stats. With a calm swipe of his left foot in the 87th minute, he prevented another away-day disaster. West Brom fans dreamed...
