[AMERICANS ABROAD] Alejandro Guido, 19, made his first start, Fernando Arce, 17, made his Liga MX debut off the bench, and three other Americans -- Edgar Castillo, Herculez Gomez and Paul Arriola -- started for Tijuana in its 2-1 loss at Cruz Azul.

Arriola, the third American teen in the Xolos' lineup, set up Richard Ruiz for the game's first goal shortly before halftime, but Cruz Azul rallied for two goals from Marco Fabian in the second half.

Xolos rested many of their starters -- including two other Americans, Greg Garza and Joe Corona -- for Tuesday's Concacaf Champions League match against the LA Galaxy at the Estadio Caliente.

Leading Scorers (2013-14):
25+1 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
14 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
9 Sacha Kljestan
(Anderlecht)
(Goals in all club competitions.)

ENGLAND. Brad Guzan's Aston Villa beat leader Chelsea, 1-0, to shake up the English Premier League title race. Guzan made a couple of good saves early in the second half before Villa won on a late goal in a game that saw Chelsea have Brazilians Willian and Ramires red carded and its manager, Jose Mourinho, ejected.

Chelsea still leads the EPL but the three teams behind it were all idle: Manchester City (six points behind with three games in hand) and Arsenal and Liverpool (seven points back with two games in hand).
