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...

Arsenal need 72 points for Champions League place, says Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger insists his side are nowhere near to joining the Premier League title race, despite his side sitting just four points behind second-placed Manchester City in the table.

Arsene Wenger has set his Arsenal side the target of 21 points from their remaining Premier League games to earn a top-four finish.

The Gunners go into Wednesday night's clash at struggling QPR in third place but with only a total of three points separating them from Manchester United, Southampton and Liverpool below.

Wenger's side also face a trip to Monaco, who won 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in the first leg of their Champions League tie, knowing they face an uphill task if they are to overturn...

Manchester City boss Pellegrini denies pressure to win trophies

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley pinpoints Manuel Pellegrini's tactics and inability to make effective changes to the lineup as reasons for Manchester City's recent struggles. Also, see why Craig wasn't a fan of Dortmund's 'Batman and Robin' celebration.
The ESPN FC team explain how Liverpool were able to exploit Manchester City's weaknesses on Sunday and agree Manuel Pellegrini's days as City manager may be numbered.

MANCHESTER -- Manuel Pellegrini has insisted he does not need to win a trophy this season to keep his job as Manchester City manager.

Pellegrini's position has come under scrutiny after City lost their last two games and it is thought he could be fighting for his job if they do not retain their Premier League title or qualify for the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

The Chilean's predecessor, Roberto Mancini, was sacked when City finished second and ended the 2012-13 campaign without any silverware.

This week's roundup of the biggest news stories features Jose Mourinho starting another row, a potentially unconventional festive season and the Premier League being put in its place.

1. Christmas in Qatar

Another step in the agonising process toward football's first winter World Cup was made on Tuesday when a FIFA task force recommended that the 2022 tournament in Qatar be held in November and December of that year, with some reports suggesting the event would only end two days before Christmas.

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...
