After joining from Sunderland in the summer, it was expected that Jermain Defoe would be a first-choice striker for Bournemouth.

But the 34-year-old has not started either of the Cherries’ opening two Premier League games.

And, when asked if it had been a tough call to leave out Defoe on Saturday,

“Jermain needs some more work and he’ll get an opportunity on Tuesday. I think starting a game is always a good indicator.”

Everton striker Oumar Niasse is set for a move to Fenerbahce, according to reports from Fotospor in Turkey.

The 27-year old only moved to Goodison Park in January 2016 from Lokomotiv Moscow after a fee of £13.5m was agreed.

Neymar Blast Barcelona Board

Neymar has hit out at Barcelona‘s directors, believing that the Blaugrana “deserve much better”.

Neymar left the Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month for a world record fee of £198m

After PSG’s 6-2 win over Toulouse on Sunday, in which Neymar scored a brace, he suggested that discontent with the Barca board was one of the reasons for his departure.

He told reporters at the Parc des Princes: “I don’t have anything to say to the Barcelona board… well, actually I have something to say. That I am disappointed with them.

“I spent four years there and was very happy. I began happy, spent four years happy and left happy. But not with them.

Arsenal have allowed Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Brammall to join Birmingham City on season-long loan deals.

Jenkinson, 25, who has one England cap, suffered a cruciate knee injury while on loan at West Ham two seasons ago and has not played for the Gunners since.

Marseille Hoping To Sign Arsenal’s Mathieu Debuchy

Featured Image

Arsenal full-back Mathieu Debuchy is a target for Marseille, reports L’Equipe.

The Frenchman is out of favour at the Emirates – he has managed only three Premier League outings for the Gunners since the start of the 2015/16 season.

Marseille are keen on the 32-year-old and could firm up their interest with an offer soon.

The Frenchman, who is under contract until 2019 with the Premier League club, is hoping to reach an amicable agreement with Arsenal officials in order to leave for free.

OM coach Rudi Garcia is familiar with Debuchy after the duo worked together at Lille and will hope the 32-year-old can provide competition for Hiroki Sakai on the right side of his defence.

Diego Costa Attacks Antonio Conte Again

Featured Image

Diego Costa feels Antonio Conte’s decision to tell him he has no future at Chelsea by text message was a “moment of madness”.

The striker told MC News: “I always asked to speak face to face with the coach and the board. I never sent [them] text messages, so it shows what kind of person he is.

“It was a moment of madness. It can happen, but I thought it was disrespectful.”

‘If something makes me sad about this situation, it’s [the fans’] affection as they’d always supported me, even during the delicate moments.

‘If I’d been in the team for three years, it was for them and the dressing room, which was very much united. It was a great experience.’

The 28-year-old is desperate to leave the Blues this summer and remains in his native Brazil on an extended summer break.

Costa is eyeing a move back to Spain with an Atletico Madrid return in the pipeline but the speculation has not resulted in a formal bid as of yet.

He added: ‘I already have in mind where I want to play and I’ve made it very clear. [Spain’s] a country with which I identify a lot due to the climate and the people.

‘I fell in love with Madrid. We have to wait for the right moment.’

Pochettino: Tottenham Were Way Better Than Chelsea

Featured Image

Mauricio Pochettino has hit out at Chelsea, for their performance and insists his side were the better side despite losing.

Chelsea could only manage two goals from their two shots on target, as Alonso opened the scoring with a beautiful freekick, before cancelling out Batshuayi’s own goal.

Conte utilised a 3-5-1-1 formation, as he is without Hazard due to injury and Cahill and Fabregas due to suspension. And Pochettino insists his men were better, despite failing to breakdown Chelsea.

“We were much better than Chelsea,” Pochettino told a post-match news conference.

“It was very clear their idea: to try and contain us and play on the counter, with Morata and Willian in front.”

“I am very happy. I think we were a little bit unlucky. If you have sometimes this percentage of luck, it can be difficult to win.”

“I am only explaining the game today. I’m not saying they are a defensive team. They played differently only today, not the normal way,” he said.

“It’s true they tried to defend deeper and go on the counter-attack with Morata and Willian. But I am so pleased with our performance.”

Real Madrid captain , Sergio Ramos claims there is an animosity towards Real Madrid, after he was sent off against Deportivo La Coruna.

The Spain international defender could only play 92 minutes, after he was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 3-0 win.

“I do not agree with the card but I respect the opinion of the referee,” Ramos told reporters.

“Sometimes officials should look at English football and let us play more.

“I like their system because in Europe, referees are more lenient.”

Mourinho: Rashford Should Embrace Boo Boys

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has urged Marcus Rashford to learn to embrace being whistled at by the opponent’s fans.

The 19-year-old forward was constantly booed by the Swansea faithfuls, as Manchester United claimed a 4-0 win.

Rashford , who is yet to score for United this season was later replaced by Anthony Martial.

Mourinho, however, has told the England international to embrace the boo boys.

“I think he has to learn how to enjoy it [the attention],” Mourinho said. “If he was a bad player, nobody would try to provoke him. They see the speed, the danger, and probably they think they can affect him.

“I think if he was on the bench and if he comes on for the last 15 or 20 minutes when the space is there, I think he would do the same things as the other guys did.

“I think he has to adapt to it. He is an English kid, a young kid who plays for their national team. Oh, I’m sorry, they are Welsh!”

Koeman: Everton Can Still Find Holes In City’s Defence

Featured Image

Everton boss Ronald Koeman says his squad can still exploit City’s defence, despite the new additions at the club.

Koeman concedes that the Manchester City squad of this season is better than the previous season, that saw City fail to get a win against Everton both home and away.

However, the Dutch manager says the high defensive line used by his former Barcelona teammate leaves room for exploitation.

“The way he likes to play is the most difficult way,” Koeman told reporters. “It’s really a pleasure to see his teams playing football.

“The Premier League is strong physically on set-plays and they try to play with a high defence and a lot of offensive players in the team.

“If you play with a high defence there is always space behind, we know that, we remember that.

“When we played City at home we punished them for that but I think with the business they did in the summer City are stronger than last year.”

Mourinho: Versatility Will Help United In Title Push

Featured Image

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho is confident his player’s versatility will play a key role in their title challenge.

United started the season in exquisite fashion, winning their first two matches against West Ham and Swansea 4-0 respectively.

Mourinho is not letting the seemingly easy victories get to his head, but trusts the versatility of his squad will prove useful.

“We had a good pre-season. We work well and we are ready to play in different systems,” he said after Saturday’s win in Wales.

“When we saw them with five at the back, we thought: ‘Let’s try to explore the advantage of playing with three up front’.

“But we are ready at any moment if we were in difficult we were ready at any moment to change and also play with three at the back.

“So we are confident with the work we did.”

Morata: I Want To Become A Key Player For Chelsea

Featured Image

Alvaro Morata has made it known he is in Chelsea to realise his full potential and become a key player for the team.

Morata was signed in the summer for £70 million from Madrid and has also played for Juventus.

The Spain international did not make enough impact at both teams to be considered a key player.

“I want to make an explosion at Chelsea,” he told Sky Sports. “I played well at Real Madrid and at Juventus, but I think I did not make the explosion that everyone expected of me. I need to be an important player for the team, for the Spanish national team.

“And I think I am at the better age and all of the best moments of my career are coming. I played good matches in the Champions League, but one a month. I need to play every weekend, score goals and play at the top level every weekend. And I work for this situation.”

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was a key reason in the Spaniard electing to move to England.

“He was a big part of my decision when I signed with Juventus,” he said. “Antonio was the Juventus coach, but for many reasons he then left Juve.

“I feel that Antonio is a coach who has always trusted in me. That is everything for me. I spoke a lot of times with Antonio and for me he is the coach who was most interested in me.”

Watzke Hits Out At Barcelona , For Role In Dembele Saga

Featured Image

Borussia Dortmund CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke has lashed out at Barcelona for exerting undue influence on winger, Ousmane Dembele.

The France youngster has been involved in a transfer saga with Dortmund and was suspended for missing training without consent.

Speaking to Sky, Watzke spoke witheringly of “glorious” Barcelona, accusing the Catalan club of playing a central role in the stand-off.

“It is not that Ous is making fun of us, he simply declines to do his job. That is a new quality,” Watzke said.

“And we should talk about the role of glorious FC Barcelona in this matter.

“On Wednesday [last week] we met with Barcelona’s officials. Our positions were very far away from each other. Then, on Thursday, he did not show up at the training.

“The timing of these events is very curious. You don’t believe a 20-year-old will refuse to go to training without his possible new club liking that?”

“They must pay the fee we want for this player, who has four years left on his contract, after they received €222million for Neymar.

“If they match our requirements soon then there will be a transfer. Otherwise, there won’t be.

“Dembele would have to apologise to the team and the club. Then it is possible, of course [that Dembele has a future in Dortmund].”

Mourinho: Conte Must Not Use Matic Sale As An Excuse For Failure

Jose Mourinho has rubbished talks that Chelsea’s early season blues is due to absence of Matic.

Matic left Chelsea for United in the summer for £40 million and impressed in his first United game.

Mourinho does not feel his sale is an excuse, Conte can use to explain Chelsea’s failure.

“When people say, for example, Chelsea lost an important midfield player, if you lose one but you buy Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater, for example, what’s the problem?” he said.

“‘The problem is when you sell and you don’t buy. When you sell and you keep buying, what’s the problem? You are probably even stronger, so I think every top team in the Premier League is potentially strong enough with the financial situation to be fighting for everything.”

Manchester United flop, Memphis Depay says his struggles at United made him a better player for Lyon.

Depay joined Manchester United from PSV in 2015 for €30 million and was touted as the next star for the club.

However, he failed to impress under Van Gaal and Mourinho and was eventually sold to Lyon for €16 million.

“In the first season, I didn’t contribute enough, but I really believe you need a year to succeed in the Premier League, it’s the fastest league in the world,” Depay said, according to ESPN. “The second, I had my self-belief back, but I didn’t play.”

“It’s then that you look at yourself in the mirror and you ask yourself a lot of questions: ‘Am I not good enough?’ It was really tough. To stay positive, you have to be very strong mentally. That experience made me grow up and is useful to me today.”

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger says defender Sead Kolasinac may be the strongest player he has ever managed.

Kolasinac joined Arsenal from Schalke on a free transfer in the summer and has impressed with his strength.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina defender has impressed the Arsenal fans with his strength and Wenger has noticed it too.

“He is naturally strong,” Wenger told reporters. “He uses quite well the strength of his body without violence and when he intervenes it doesn’t look to be a foul, he just uses his body strength.

“It is an important quality to help adapt to the Premier League.”

“He has the capacity to repeat runs, and we noticed when we watched him play that he is quite dangerous in the final third,” Wenger said.

“He already has some assists since he came here, so overall maybe he is not a glamorous dribbler but the quality of his runs is very efficient.”

Tottenham Announce Signing Of Davinson Sanchez From Ajax

Featured Image

Davinson Sanchez  has signed a six-year contract with Tottenham until 2023.

The defender moved to Ajax from Colombian side Atletico Nacional in June 2016 and made 47 appearances for the Dutch side, scoring seven goals.

Davison Sanchez has thanked his former side Ajax and expressed his excitement at playing for Tottenham.

“I would like to thank the coach, management, players and fans of Ajax. It is a great move for me to come here to develop my career,” he told Spurs’ official club website.

“I am very excited to be signing for such a famous club as Tottenham Hotspur. I am looking forward to working with Mauricio Pochettino and the players and meeting everyone there.”

The 21-year-old will “complete a back three of former Ajax defenders at Spurs with Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld”, says the Telegraph.

“Pochettino has been personally pushing for the signature of Sanchez, having become convinced he is the perfect man to strengthen his back line.”

As well as operating in the centre of defence, he can play at right back which may mean Spurs no longer need to sign a replacement for Kyle Walker, who joined Manchester City earlier in the season.
