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

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...

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.
