Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil could be answer to Man United’s No. 10 woes

Arsene Wenger has no fears that rumours linking Mesut Ozil to Man United will have any impact on the German’s performances. That Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho likes Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is not in dispute. He has said as much: calling his former playmaker at Real Madrid “the best No. 10 in the world” in 2013. But Mourinho’s admiration is likely to be growing with each passing day he stands on the sidelines at Manchester United’s Carrington training base. He already has two natural No. 10s in his squad, yet Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s form has been so dismal that he has not even made the bench in seven of United’s last eight games and Juan Mata is, more often than not, used on the right.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City or Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ of 2003-04?

The FC panel discuss the positive impact Pep Guardiola has had on English football and whether or not his City side can finish the season unbeaten. ESPN FC’s Mark Ogden and Man City correspondent Jonathan Smith assess City’s chances of finishing the Premier League season unbeaten. Manchester City have broken Arsenal’s 14-game record for consecutive Premier League victories (held since 2002) with a rousing 4-0 win over a severely outclassed Swansea team and can now set their sights on equalling the Gunners’ achievement of going a whole season unbeaten. It was Man City’s fifth win of the season by four or more goals and means Pep Guardiola now holds the record for longest managerial win streaks in the Premier League (15), La Liga (16) and Bundesliga (19), with h...

Son calms Wembley nerves, while Erik Lamela looked sharp in Spurs return

Tottenham are back in 4th after a comfortable 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion. Following Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Brighton, Mauricio Pochettino looks ahead to his side’s next fixture against leaders Man City. A goal late in each half gave Spurs the 2-0 victory Wednesday over Brighton & Hove Albion that takes them back up to fourth place in the Premier League. Tottenham started brightly but soon got bogged down against a Brighton side that had come to Wembley to defend. The deadlock was only broken in the 40th minute when an attempted cross from Serge Aurier surprised the keeper and landed in the far corner. The second half followed a similar pattern, and the home fans began to get jittery that Brighton might somehow steal a point. But Son Heung-Min settled the n...
