ESPN FC Player of the Month: Ronaldo, Sanchez or Lacazette?

Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Cristiano Ronaldo are all candidates for October player of the month, but was there any question whom the ESPN FC crew would choose?

Normal service resumed in September when Cristiano Ronaldo picked up the award after Diego Costa's hot start to his Chelsea career earned him honours in August. Europe's top performers in October have been whittled to a three-man short list in consultation with stats website WhoScored.com and ESPN FC's writers. Now it's up to you to select which of the three deserves to be named the ESPN FC Player of the Month.

Whether you agree with the nominations or think there are notable omissions, let...

Arsenal can't afford to take their eye of the ball against bullish Burnley

Arsenal manger Arsene Wenger spoke to the media on Friday ahead of his side's English Premier League game with Burnley.

Arsene Wenger will be wary of taking gambles against Burnley on Saturday -- resting players and easing off ahead of a European game is when big teams often come unstuck in the Premier League.

Boss Wenger has got a few injury worries to contend with and facing Anderlecht in the Champions League will no doubt be on his mind. And although Jack Wilshere will miss out after taking a knock in training, they cannot afford to gamble on Keiran Gibbs' fitness. You have to wonder if they'll rest and rotate...

Theo Walcott availability gives Arsenal turbo-charged boost vs. Burnley

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared his Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez to Luis Suarez during the weekend. So how do their numbers stack up through their first nine career Premier League matches?
Theo Walcott scored five Premier League goals in 13 appearances last season.

This weekend, Arsenal come up against Premier League strugglers Burnley. It's a superb opportunity for the Gunners to gain another three points and continue their climb up the table. Their confidence will be boosted not just by two consecutive victories, but also by the return to fitness of Theo Walcott.

The last time these sides met was in March 2010. On that occasion, Arsenal ran out 3-1 winners. Walcott was among the goal scorers, cutting in from the right flank to fire home with his left foot....

Kieran Gibbs' improvement at left-back deserves high praise at Arsenal

Kieran Gibbs began life as a winger, but has matured into a fine defender.

Debates about who is the best goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or striker in the Premier League are often kicked off by a journalist asking a manager whether they think one of their players deserves the honour.

In this situation, what is the boss supposed to say exactly? No? Hardly likely. You can only hope the journalist is being realistic with the question so he/she doesn't get a silly debate going. But it's rather like the situation with fans: they are hardly likely to be the fairest when it...

Arsenal's Lukas Podolski to make acting debut in German comedy movie

Following in the hallowed footsteps of celebrated footballing thespians Eric Cantona, Vinnie Jones and Andres Iniesta (played the part of "albino pirate" in the Spanish-dubbed version of Aardman animation "Pirates!"), it seems that Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski is also about to make his debut on the big screen.

Sanchez's cyclone sprints make him a fine candidate for No. 10 role

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared his Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez to Luis Suarez during the weekend. So how do their numbers stack up through their first nine career Premier League matches?

In some ways, it doesn't matter where you play Alexis Sanchez. He defies the limits of conventional positioning, eating up the ground in a tornado of energy. His statistical heat maps are illegible, scorched by the sheer running power he unleashes in every game.

However, you've got to start him somewhere. This past weekend, Arsene Wenger might have stumbled upon the ideal position in which to field Sanchez. At Sunderland, Wenger deployed the Chilean in a new role as a roaming No. 10. The success...
