Arsenal supporters have chosen Aaron Ramsey's volley against Sunderland as their September Goal of the Month.

Ramsey - who also picked up the Barclays Player of the Month award - put Arsenal on course for a 3-1 win, as Arsene Wenger's side continued their fine start to the season.

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has described his Europa League winning goal last season as the "greatest moment" of his career.

With the international break in full swing, the 29-year-old Serbian stopper reflected on the last-gasp winner in an in-depth feature interview with Chelsea's official club website, claiming he will never forget his famous header.

Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand and man of the moment Adnan Januzaj took time out of the spotlight to take in some NBA action.

The two-day NBA Global Games show is taking place in Manchester, with Ferdinand and Januzaj watching Oklahoma Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers as they went head-to-head at the Phones 4 U Arena last night.

Stevan Jovetic has assured Manchester City fans that they are yet to see the best of him.

After a protracted move to the Etihad stadium over the summer, the Montenegro international has endured a stop-start season, with injuries keeping the youngster out of Manuel Pellegrini's line-up.

But Jovetic is confident that his best is yet to come, and he's looking forward to showing the City faithful what he can do.

Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso could make a sooner-than-expected return from a broken foot against Malaga on Saturday week.

The 31-year-old Spanish international had surgery to repair a fractured metatarsal in August, with the doctor who carried out the procedure suggesting the ex-Liverpool star is one month ahead of schedule in his recovery.

And finally, Barcelona president Sandro Rosell is confident that Andres Iniesta will end his career with the club.

The Spain international has been holding contract extension talks in recent weeks but is yet to reach an agreement with the Spanish champions, leading to some suggestions that Iniesta was considering a move away from the Nou Camp.
