If you consider all the positions and places in the world Mexico full-back Miguel Layun has played, it can be hard not to place blame on someone whose fingerprints can be found all over when things go wrong. That's especially true for Layun because "todo es culpa de Layun." That is to say, "it's all Layun's fault," a hashtag-worthy grievance that originated with his arrival, aged 21, to Club América in 2009 when critics deemed him unworthy of wearing the colors of one of Mexico's most successful...

Elton John's 7-year-old son has signed for Watford's academy.

Having already been ordained as the club's honorary president for life, it looks like Elton John's longstanding association with Watford FC is going to live on into a second generation.

There is nothing worse than being forgotten, which is what it felt like for Spanish forward Gerard Deulofeu when Barcelona did not include his name on their commemorative shirt after clinching the La Liga title.

LIVERPOOL -- Three thoughts from Anfield on Liverpool's  5-0 win over Watford in the Premier League.

1.  Liverpool bounce back in style

Responding positively to defeats is part of Liverpool's DNA under Jurgen Klopp. Mohamed Salah's sensational performance against Watford on Saturday ensured that Liverpool maintained their record of having never lost consecutive games in the league under the German.

Wenger gets boost as Arsenal end Premier League losing run

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Arsenal's 3-0 win vs. Watford in the Premier League.

1. Finally, a comfortable day for Arsenal

In the broader scheme of things, this game could not possibly have meant less to Arsenal. The three points gained by beating Watford 3-0 merely moved them to within 10 of fourth place; with just eight games remaining, it's still a gap too wide.

But victory was important to continue what goodwill and confidence the Gunners gained by winning in Milan last week, ahead of Thursday's...
