Ten Asian prospects to watch for in 2015

Evan Dimas is on his to becoming the biggest Indonesian star since Bambang Pamungkas.

2015 is upon us, so it's time for ESPN FC to take a look at ten Asian players who will be worth keeping an eye on in the New Year...

1. Evan Dimas (Persebaya Surabaya and Indonesia)

The 19-year-old has been a sensation in Indonesia ever since a 2013 hat-trick against South Korea in qualification for Asia's U-19 Championship. The dimunative midfielder has actually spent time in Barcelona in 2012 after impressing Nike's 'The Chance' talentspotters and earning a place among 100 to train in front of...

Winners and losers at Barcelona under Enrique's leadership

See who Stevie put on his World XI team of 2014.

Luis Enrique was given the incredibly difficult task of ensuring Barcelona returned to the very top of European football after a couple of disappointing years due to ineffective management, a lack of hunger and the inevitable passing of time.

Since his arrival at the Camp Nou during the summer, the Asturian coach has managed to make several changes that have improved the overall quality of the squad. While it is obvious that the team is not performing at the level Cules have come to expect in...

Aston Villa desperately need a playmaking midfielder

Swansea manager Garry Monk heralded a second successive clean sheet as his side made it six points from six in the Boxing Day matchup against Aston Villa.

A Gylfi Sigurdsson, that's what Aston Villa need. The Icelandic midfielder's free-kick goal secured Swansea's Boxing Day 1-0 victory over the Villans and, at the same time as clinching three points for the Welsh club, reminded the visiting Midland side exactly what they are missing.

Villa don't have a player like Sigurdsson, and they badly need one. A midfield playmaker who covets possession and uses the ball to prise open opposition defences, to make the subtle differences which can affect games...

Local pride at stake as Catalonia take on the Basque Country in friendly

Catalan Basque
The national flags of Catalonia and the Basque Country will be on display.

Organising the Catalan national team's annual New Year friendly is no simple task. La Liga's winter break provides a brief window for Spain-based players to work within, but other leagues have a less forgiving schedule. Those time constraints, combined with the delicate nature of playing against a national team FIFA does not recognise, means that Catalonia's big ambitions for the fixture are rarely met.

While the original idea this year was for the Catalans...

Fantasy Preview: Week 19

Tottenham's Harry Kane would be a savvy choice as fantasy captain for gameweek 19.
Tottenham's Harry Kane would be a savvy choice as fantasy captain for gameweek 19.

Ten games over two days comprise Week 19 with one chance to check announced lineups before the week locks: Tottenham-Manchester United.

Sunday, Dec. 28

Tottenham (9-3-6) vs. Manchester United (10-5-3)

Harry Kane (6.4) and Christian Eriksen (7.4) are posting strong fantasy numbers.

Wayne Rooney (10.1) and Robin van Persie (9.7) are doing the same for United. The team is in third-place but only 2-4-2 on the road. Angel di Maria (9.1) is an injury doubt.

Southampton (10-2-6) vs. Chelsea...

Sergio Ramos a viable candidate for Ballon d'Or 2015

Shaka Hislop picks his ten best teams in the world based on their current form.

Before the financial crisis assaulted the Spanish economy, Christmas used to start somewhere around September. Adverts for El Gordo -- the largest festive lottery draw in the world -- would be smeared over Metro stations even earlier with the long-running pitch to punters: "What if it lands here?"

This year, it landed very much in the capital, and few would bet against the Ballon d'Or doing likewise when the draw is made in Switzerland in a couple of weeks' time. Speculation about who will win...
