Juventus must find balance and defend as a unit to win sixth straight Scudetto

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti examines the lessons Juventus should be taking from after their defeat at Fiorentina.

People have forgotten about it now, but in November there was a bit of a controversy when La Gazzetta dello Sport ran a story about a speech Gigi Buffon allegedly gave his Juventus teammates after a 1-1 draw with Lyon that month.

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.

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...

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.

Former Manchester United coach Brian Whitehouse, pictured during his playing days.

Manchester United go to Stoke on Saturday, aiming to extend their unbeaten run to 17 games, ideally with a win. A couple of days after the game, just south of the city, a funeral will take place for a man who was an important figure behind the scenes at Old Trafford in the 1980s.

Brian Whitehouse, who died this week aged 81, was integral to the careers of several United greats. Born in West Bromwich, he enjoyed a productive professional career as a striker in the 1950s and 60s with his hometown...
