Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 15 times against Malaga, Barca face Eibar and much more in the latest La Liga action.
Neymar and Luis Suarez played a hilarious prank on Gerard Pique during training.

Here are the latest stories for Friday.

BARCELONA: Barcelona's 10-year winless run at Real Sociedad's Estadio Anoeta is finally over after a 1-0 win in a first-leg quarterfinal of the Copa del Rey, but Asier Illarramendi was furious Lionel Messi was not sent off.

MAN UNITEDLyon president Jean-Michel Aulas believes Memphis Depay is champing at the bit to show his "immense talent" as the Netherlands forward puts the final touches on his move from Manchester United.

Don't dismiss Arsenal from title race just yet with crunch clashes looming

Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer make their predictions for which teams will grab the top four spots in the Premier League.
A stoppage time winner from Laurent Koscielny sealed a dramatic 1-0 win over Burnley in their last meeting.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed Per Mertesacker has signed a one-year contract extension with Arsenal.
Stewart Robson joins the FC boys to discuss Alexis Sanchez's mood swings at Arsenal and why he'll be leaving the Gunners.

The idea that, for some, Arsenal are not in the title race is a strange one when you look at the league table. The gap to Chelsea is obvious, and with a crunch game coming up against the leaders in February, there's a chance to close the difference.

In the meantime, though, pundits have written this season off as more of the same from Arsene Wenger's team, which is slightly unfair at this stage.

Firstly, nobody expected Chelsea to go on a 13-game win streak after losing 3-0 to the Gunners back in...

Man City and Spurs to draw, Chelsea to ease past Hull, Stoke upset United?

Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes pick the winners of the best Premier League match ups this weekend.
The Exploding Heads preview the huge game between Man City and Tottenham, and the Dembele-go-around.

Another weekend of top Premier League action is upon us, and it's a big one for Pep Guardiola as his Manchester City side take on Tottenham. City have struggled in recent months, while Tottenham are on the rise, but who will come out on top at the Etihad?

Meanwhile, Chelsea have Diego Costa back in the squad but don't seem to need him that much as they take on lowly Hull City seven points clear at the top of the table.

Liverpool host Swansea, while Manchester United travel to Stoke and Arsenal will...

Juventus planning audacious Alexis Sanchez-Miralem Pjanic swap

Gab Marcotti argues that while it might look good on paper, an Alexis Sanchez and Miralem Pjanic swap is wishful thinking.

The winter transfer window is now in full swing! As usual, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to which rumours are picking up steam. Check out all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Juventus dream of Sanchez-Pjanic swap

One of this window's more outlandish rumours has surfaced in Italy.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez is reportedly the subject of an audacious swap proposal from Juventus, with Tuttosport saying Miralem Pjanic will be offered as the player to go in the opposite...

Sanchez's expressions about passion and competitiveness not discontent

Janusz Michallik believes Alexis Sanchez's competitiveness combined with contract uncertainties play into his frustrations.
Stewart Robson joins the FC boys to discuss Alexis Sanchez's mood swings at Arsenal and why he'll be leaving the Gunners.
Alexis Sanchez looked visibily upset after being subbed out ten minutes from time against Swansea.

There is a curious tendency in sport to see an outward show of emotion as some kind of transgression which is not to be tolerated; any expression of character an unwelcome diversion from the clean, clear lines along which our experience of the game should run.

Alexis Sanchez's "sulk" against Swansea City was one such moment, but there are many. You can see it in the attempt to make a unique individual like Lewis Hamilton conform to convention or the rush to vilify Nick Kyrgios when he shows his...

Arsenal swapping Miralem Pjanic for Alexis Sanchez makes no sense

Gab Marcotti argues that while it might look good on paper, an Alexis Sanchez and Miralem Pjanic swap is wishful thinking.

Arsenal are reported to be ready to do a swap deal that would bring Miralem Pjanic to the Emirates, with Alexis Sanchez heading to Juventus in return.

Sanchez may not have signed a new contract yet, but it would be quick a shock if the Gunners were to let one of their stars leave, even in a swap deal. We asked our four Arsenal experts for their thoughts on the transfer and, unsurprisingly, they all think the same.
