The new year brings a new season in Liga MX, with Puebla and reigning champion Tigres kicking off the 2018 Clausura on Friday.

Here are five themes to keep track of in the months to follow.

1. Club America, Chivas to bounce back?

Liga MX season-in-a-sentence reviews for every team

Tigres celebrate their 2017 Apertura title win over Monterrey.
It was another great season for Tigres, who have won the Apertura three seasons in a row.

Lobos' Amaury Escoto scores early Puskas Award contender for 2018

Amaury Escoto may have scored the goal of the year with this bicycle kick from long-range.

The Puskas Award shortlist for 2017 may have only been revealed last week, but Lobos midfielder Amaury Escoto has already filed a very strong contender for 2018.

With the scoreline locked at 1-1 going into the latter stages, Escoto popped up with an 85th-minute winner for Lobos over Chivas Guadalajara.

It's perhaps also worth mentioning that the goal just so happened to be an insanely spectacular, acrobatic overhead kick from the edge of the 18-yard box.
