Will Cristiano Ronaldo's return boost Real Madrid vs. Man City

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Paul Mariner talk Messi's performance this weekend and whether CR7 should start against City.

The Champions League semifinals often provide the most fascinating tactical battles, allowing managers the opportunity to showcase their strategic qualities over two legs of tight, tense, top-level matches.

Both last week's first legs were extremely close, with all four sides defending solidly and allowing the opposition little space in the final third. The second legs, however, should be more open -- and potentially even more interesting from a tactical point of view.

Leicester find success from set pieces as Man United try to expose the flanks

The ESPN FC crew assess Leicester's match up with Man United and how this compares to their other results this season.

Manchester United put Leicester's title party on hold after an entertaining 1-1 draw on Sunday. At times, the Red Devils played with the kind of intensity and speed that Old Trafford was once accustomed to, but slack defending at set pieces let the Foxes emerge with a point that puts them on the brink of the Premier League title.

Particularly in the opening stages, United put Leicester on the back foot and opened the scoring through Anthony Martial. They stretched the play and pushed their full-backs...

Roberto Firmino, Cedric Bakambu with crucial roles in Villarreal vs. Liverpool

Villarreal manager Marcelino Garcia Toral considers Liverpool the favourites to advance to the Europa League Final.

Liverpool's Europa League semifinal against Villarreal will be Reds manager Jurgen Klopp's biggest tactical test so far. While Klopp overcame his former side Dortmund in a thrilling quarterfinal, that victory felt more about emotion and passion than tactics. Liverpool were outplayed for long periods. It was hardly a template for success.

Villarreal are a well-organised, compact and speedy side, with coach Marcelino preaching a philosophy comparable to that of Atletico Madrid or Leicester City....

Mesut Ozil invisible and Oliver Giroud toothless as Arsenal blow title hopes

Arsene Wenger admits he's fearful over Arsenal's place in the Premier League's top four.

A couple of classic Arsenal scenarios arose in the goalless draw at Sunderland on Sunday -- and not in a good way. The Gunners slipped to that familiar fourth position after a lacklustre display in which Mesut Ozil went missing and Olivier Giroud again failed to score.

Sunderland stayed solid to record a third clean sheet in fifth games, repelling the visitors with a defensive 4-3-3 in which the game plan centred on optimistic passes towards Jermain Defoe. Certainly in the first half, Sunderland's...

How Mauricio Pochettino transformed Tottenham into true title contenders

ESPN FC's Craig Burley has nothing but high praise for Tottenham's performance against Stoke City.

Tottenham Hotspur's 4-0 thrashing of Stoke City on Monday evening was among the most overwhelmingly one-sided Premier League games of the season. It was a victory so comfortable that Tottenham managed to hit the bar and miss an open goal, yet still triumph easily.

Identifying a single man of the match was difficult: there were simply too many options. You could say something similar about Spurs' Player of the Year, too: as many as five players could deservedly take that award. In situations...

West Ham turn to crosses against counter-attacking Leicester in thriller

The FC panel looks at the controversial calls from Leicester's game against West Ham and how well the ref carried them out.

Most eyes may have been drawn towards Jon Moss's controversial refereeing display at the King Power stadium on Saturday, but tactics were also important in the dramatic 2-2 draw in which Leicester equalised from a penalty deep into stoppage time.

The Foxes had taken the lead through Jamie Vardy on a vintage counter-attack, and though they offered little else from open play before half-time, their sturdy defending had kept West Ham at bay. The visitors missed Andy Carroll's powerful presence, and...
