Lyon's Nabil Fekir reveals Barcelona ambition, eyes return for Euro 2016

Lyon's Ligue 1 title chances faded further as they suffered a 4-2 defeat at home to Montpellier.
Laurent Depoitre says Gent's win against Lyon shows they have the potential to qualify from their Champions League group.
A late winner by Kalifa Coulibaly gave Gent a victory against Lyon and enough points to move ahead of Valencia in the group.

Nabil Fekir is dreaming of earning a move to Barcelona once he returns from a cruciate ligament injury and the Lyon attacker has not yet given up hope of making Euro 2016.

Fekir, 22, underwent surgery in September after hurting his right knee in Portugal while making his first start for France.

Lyon have struggled in the absence of last season's Ligue 1 Player of the Year, with club president Jean Michel-Aulas suggesting that if Fekir had been playing they would not have crashed out of Europe.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard confident of returning to top form

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop doesn't think Chelsea played all that well against Tottenham, even though Spurs are a strong side.

Eden Hazard says discussion over his best position will stop once he starts scoring for Chelsea again.

With Diego Costa relegated to the bench, Hazard was played in the No. 9 position in the 0-0 draw at Tottenham on Sunday.

Hazard enjoyed the freedom of his new role, heading over with one good chance and then seeing a volley well saved by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. But he is still without a goal this season as a debate on where he should be playing continues.

Despite Alexis Sanchez picking up an apparent injury, Arsene Wenger insists he was not wrong to play him.
The ESPN FC crew discuss how Arsenal's latest round of injuries might impact their Premier League title chances.
