Houssem Aouar has been attracting plenty of attention.

Scouting Spotlight takes a look at the new star at Lyon, the man who has Besiktas firing on all cylinders, and a gem from Ajax.

Houssem Aouar - Lyon

Another shining example of the abundance of talent in Lyon's academy, Aouar joined the club as an 11-year-old after starting out at Nabil Fekir's former youth team, AC Villeurbanne. He made his first-team debut last season and has continued to impress in the current campaign.

Are Manchester City the best team ever in the Premier League?

The FC panel discuss the positive impact Pep Guardiola has had on English football and whether or not his City side can finish the season unbeaten.
With the first Manchester derby of the season set in the books, Stewart Robson reviews the match and the exact moment Manchester City took the win.
Pep Guardiola says he encouraged his players to celebrate their Manchester derby win, but insists they did it in the changing rooms.

Manchester City are a fine team. They deserve their double-digit lead at the top of the Premier League. As the halfway mark of the campaign approaches, Pep Guardiola's team remain unbeaten.

Just how good are they?

The most obvious point of comparison in the Premier League era is Arsenal's Invincibles, the side that were unbeaten in the 2003-04 season. Arsene Wenger's team share many similarities with City. Arsenal had guile and pace up front and could attack at a speed that blew their rivals...

The FC 100 revealed the best players by position, but who would make the best team if you put them together? We select our XI from the list.

GK: Manuel Neuer

There's a sentimental temptation to call Gianluigi Buffon the best goalkeeper in the world, and certainly a strong case to be made for David De Gea. But once more Neuer was our choice, despite injuries that have kept him out of the Bayern side for a good portion of this season. The frequent line about Neuer is that he has "redefined" the role...

What makes a good derby? Anatomy of the Merseyside, Manchester rivalries

Alison Bender previews the Manchester derby as Manchester United prepare to host Manchester City at Old Trafford.
Don Hutchison and Alison Bender discuss Everton's chances of a first win at Anfield since 1999.

The sheer paranoia, fuss and aggressive energy that goes into them is quite something. And that's just in the days leading up to a domestic derby. In the space of a few hours Sunday, Merseyside and Manchester will host their own hyperlocal square-ups at Anfield and Old Trafford, feeding the obsession with a fixture that offers as many points as any other.

But what makes a classically great derby game?

Globally local

These double-derby days are a convenient quirk of the mythical "fixture...
