Fantasy preview: Week 27

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson previews a busy week of Premier League fixtures ahead, and suggests top ELP fantasy picks.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini looks ahead to Sunday's Premier League visit to Liverpool.

For the first time this season, all 20 Premier League teams will not be in action for a league game week because of the Capital One Cup Final. Cup finalists Chelsea and Tottenham are idle as are Leicester and QPR.

There is one game to check announced lineups in Week 27 before the ESPN FC fantasy game locks: West Ham-Crystal Palace.

West Ham vs. Crystal Palace

West Ham blew a two-goal lead at Tottenham for a disappointing draw in their last game on Feb. 22. Still, some impressive...

Arsene Wenger should stand by crestfallen Olivier Giroud vs. Everton

The ESPN FC crew debate the lack of quality shown by English clubs in the Champions League and why the Premier League's best seem to falter against 'inferior' opposition.

When the No. 12 was raised aloft on the fourth official's board during Arsenal's 3-1 loss to Monaco on Wednesday, you feared for Olivier Giroud. His performance had drawn groans of frustration from an Emirates crowd that is famously unforgiving -- just ask Emmanuel Eboue, Andrey Arshavin and Nicklas Bendtner, who were booed when coming off after disastrous displays.

Fortunately, the crowd were relatively sympathetic to Giroud. There was an initial outburst of relief when they saw he was to...

Arsenal players must be picked off the floor by Arsene Wenger

ESPN FC's Craig Burley goes position by position to critique Arsenal's 'shambolic' performance against Monaco.

Arsene Wenger and his players reflect on their stunning 3-1 loss against AS Monaco.
Relive the most memorable moments from Wednesday's Champions League Round of 16 action, highlighted by Monaco's 3-1 win over Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger looked more devastated than angry, and no wonder. Defeats don't come much more painful than Arsenal's humiliating loss to Monaco at the Emirates.

It was supposed to be the Gunners' best chance of reaching the quarterfinals of the Champions League in five years.

Instead, it was one of Wenger's worst nights in Europe. Arsenal were taught a painful, cruel and hard lesson as Monaco gave them a European masterclass.

And it's hardly as if the French club are European superpowers in this competition....

Arsenal's Champions League loss more of the same failures for Arsene Wenger

Arsenal's horrible defending sees them concede three goals at home to Monaco, putting them in a difficult situation heading into the second leg.
Arsenal's horrible defending sees them concede three goals at home to put them in a difficult situation heading into the second leg.
Arsenal are on the verge of being eliminated in the Round of 16 in the Champions League following their 3-1 home defeat to Monaco.

If history repeating itself twice is farce, how do you describe this latest shambles from Arsenal?

This was not just a night that likely sets up a fifth successive elimination from the Champions League last-16 stage. It was the umpteenth time in which the team succumbed to the same old flaws, the same old stubbornness.

This is why Arsene Wenger has never won a continental trophy, let alone the Champions League. This is why it's hard to have any faith in his side ever becoming anything more than...

Arsenal woeful all around in Champions League loss to Monaco

The ESPN FC crew analyse Arsenal's player ratings from FC blogger Andrew Mangan.

What was supposed to be a game which provided relatively safe passage into the quarterfinals of the Champions League became Arsenal's Titanic as they went down 3-1 to Monaco at the Emirates this evening.

The Gunners were poor individually and collectively, spurning good chances to score and conceding one unlucky, and two rather silly goals. From an attacking point of view they just didn't click against a Monaco side that don't concede many goals as evidenced by only allowing one goal in the Champions...

Monaco humiliate Arsenal at the Emirates in the Champions League

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down how Dimitar Berbatov was able to exploit Arsenal's defence for Monaco's second goal.

LONDON -- Three quick points from Arsenal's stunning 3-1 defeat to Monaco in their Champions League round of 16 first-leg clash at the Emirates.

1. Monaco humiliate Arsenal

A club that holds great memories for Arsene Wenger dealt him what looks like a fatal blow. Monaco made themselves completely comfortable in the Emirates with a composed, professional display beyond that of harried and misfiring Arsenal. It was a familiar North London foe in Dimitar Berbatov who scored what looks a crucial...
