Monaco trio, Paul Pogba, Luis Suarez headline the UCL Team of the Week

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reacts to Arsenal's "embarrassing" 3-1 loss at home to Monaco.

With another wild week in the Champions League that sees the round of 16 first legs all complete, a trio from AS Monaco lead ESPN FC's Team of the Week:

Goalkeeper: Joe Hart, Manchester City

It might seem odd to include the goalkeeper from a team that lost and conceded two goals but were it not for Joe Hart, then Manchester City could be in even worse shape going into the second leg of their round of 16 tie with Barcelona. Hart not only had to contend with one of the most fearsome attacks...

Robert Lewandowski vs. Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich? Don't believe it yet

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is pleased with how many goals his side have been scoring of late, but still thinks they can get even better.

As I was researching a story last year on Robert Lewandowski's protracted transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich, I asked a well-placed source about rumours that Pep Guardiola didn't actually want the Polish striker.

"I can't tell you anything about that," came the answer. "Can't tell" because he didn't know, or "can't tell" because he didn't want to tell? You have to be careful about jumping to conclusions when faced with such ambivalence. I ignored the reply for the purpose of the...

Arsene Wenger urges fans to stand with Arsenal after Monaco loss

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner believes Arsene Wenger and staff are putting together a strong squad, while Shaka Hislop thinks the Gunners boss should have left after winning the FA Cup.

LONDON -- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has urged the club's supporters to stand by his team after their latest hugely disappointing result in the Champions League against Monaco.

Arsenal's 3-1 home defeat in the last-16 of Europe's elite competition sparked a fresh wave of criticism for Wenger and his players, but he hopes the Emirates Stadium faithful will continue to back the players as they head into Sunday's Premier League game against Everton.

Busy fixture slate hampers English teams in Europe - Manuel Pellegrini

As Manchester City's hope of advancing in the UEFA Champions League was severely deflated by FC Barcelona, the ESPN FC crew debate whether or not Manuel Pellegrini should be sacked based on his side's UCL form.

MANCHESTER -- Manuel Pellegrini believes English football's heavy winter workload helps account for the poor performance of Premier League teams in Europe.

The Chilean's Manchester City were beaten 2-1 by Barcelona on Tuesday and were one of four of England's top seven sides to suffer setbacks in continental competitions this week.

Arsenal lost 3-1 at home to Monaco before Tottenham went down 2-0 to Fiorentina and Liverpool were knocked out of the Europa League by Besiktas on penalties after being...

Saul Niguez had breathing difficulties after Leverkusen challenge - report

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone admits he's relieved their UEFA Champions League tie with Bayer Leverkusen is still alive, after a 1-0 defeat in Germany in the first leg.
Roger Schmidt believes his side have secured a strong position in their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie with Atletico Madrid, after a 1-0 home win in the first leg.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes that Bayer Leverkusen are lucky to escape with a win and that Atleti deserved a draw.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez reportedly had trouble breathing after a heavy challenge from Bayer Leverkusen's Kyriakos Papadopoulos during Tuesday night's Champions League clash.

Saul had to leave the pitch after the incident, which happened in the first half, and remained in Germany for treatment when the rest of the squad flew back to Madrid after the 1-0 defeat.

A statement published on the club's official website said: "Saul Niguez, under observation at the Leverkusen Clinic, is in...
