The first weekend of 2014 is kicked off with an exciting three days of soccer action across the globe, including the return of Serie A, the FA Cup, and Liga MX.

Weary English Premier League clubs head into their fifth game in two weeks as the world’s oldest cup competition begins it’s third round, with plenty of the lower league teams hoping to take out an EPL side. Headlining the round is the classic North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham on Saturday while Manchester United host Swansea City on Sunday.

In Italy, Serie A resumes with a top-of-the-table clash that could determine who wins this season’s Scudetto. Once leaders AS Roma travel north to face three-time defending champions Juventus on Sunday and fans will be able to see both team’s veteran leaders play. Roma have their ace Francesco Totti back to full fitness as do Juventus with Andrea Pirlo. With five points standing in between Juventus and Roma, a win for the Bianconeri could set themselves up for a fourth straight Serie A title.

Finally, Liga MX returns this weekend with the start of the Clausura campaign, just 19 days after Club Leon won the Apertura title. Club America, who lost in the final, enter the season as favorites to win, as does Leon and Morelia. The biggest test in the first match of the year though goes to America, who host Tigres UANL.
