The FC crew doubt Paul Pogba's injury will hinder Manchester United against an Everton side struggling after a big summer.
Stewart Robson and the FC crew discuss Alexis Sanchez's role in the Arsenal squad and why he must be in the XI at Chelsea.

The FC crew respond to your Champions League questions about standout clubs, chances for Premier League sides and Juventus.

Just short of 63 hours will have elapsed between the end of Arsenal's Europa League clash against Cologne on Thursday and Sunday's Premier League encounter with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

But for the unprecedented numbers of Cologne supporters in London for the group game at the Emirates, which led to a one-hour kick-off delay, Arsene Wenger's players would have had the benefit of an extra 60 minutes recuperation time before a crucial game in their league campaign -- not that the additional hour...

Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes debate whether Harry Kane needs to leave Tottenham to reward his world-class talent.
Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes debate whether Harry Kane needs to leave Tottenham to reward his world-class talent.

The three German teams' results in the Champions League ran the whole gamut of outcomes -- a win, a draw and a defeat -- but only one club found unhappiness in a resoundingly positive scoreline.

Bayern Munich's 3-0 victory over an Anderlecht side that spent almost the entire match with one man down threw up all sorts of uncomfortable questions about Carlo Ancelotti's regime. It provided deeply unsettling answers.

Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, suffered a 3-1 away defeat at the...

Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min lead Tottenham's stellar start to UCL

FC's Dan Kilpatrick and Joao Castelo-Branco assess Tottenham's performance in their UCL opening victory against Dortmund.

After previously winning just one out of 11 matches at Wembley, Tottenham picked a good time to arrest their run of disappointing results at the national stadium as they got their Champions League campaign off to a winning start.

Solo goals from Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane sandwiched a 20-yard strike from Andriy Yarmolenko inside the first 15 minutes against Borussia Dortmund -- and Kane then struck the killer blow on the hour mark to secure an invaluable 3-1 victory.

Jan Vertonghen was sent off...
