Show highlights and what's coming up

Posted by Daniel Krieg

Tune into ESPN2 at 5:30pm ET for tonight's ESPN FC. Roger Bennett is in Manchester to interview City's Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure, as they discuss the club's title hopes, Wednesday's match away to Spurs, and this summer's World Cup. We also preview tomorrow's Merseyside derby and a busy week of Premier League action. And just like last week, Alejandro Moreno unveils his Filthy Five!

In case you missed last night's show, here are the highlights!

After a weekend that saw the FA Cup put the Premier League to the sidelines, Alejandro, Steve Nicol, and Shaka Hislop engaged in a spirited debate about the tournament's value to English football fans and if it should be moved to the midweek.

Following Diego Maradona's controversial comments about Pele, Shaka and Steve also continued one of the game's age-old debates: Is Pele or Mardona the best football player ever?

Alejandro argued that Cristiano Ronaldo's strong emotions surrounding the Ballon d'Or are genuine and should be appreciated. Steve and Shaka disagreed.

With the January transfer window its final days, Gab Marcotti poured water on the deals that won't happen, and gave life to some surprising rumors.

In #FCExtraTime, the team discussed Barcelona possibly trying to circumvent financial fair play, Arsenal's title hopes and transfer plans, & if Spurs can finish in the Top Four with key players returning from injury.
