BT Sport Everton are lacking in pace, which the other Premier League heavyweights are not That is the view of pundit and former Everton centre-back Martin Keown.Keown was speaking at half-time of the Europa League 2-2 draw between Ronald Koeman’s side and Apollon Limassol this evening.Everton were expected to make a bold bid for Champions League qualification this year after spending in excess of £100m in the summer.However, they find themselves down in 14th, with seven points from their opening six games.They have also struggled in Europe, with a lack of goals largely down to the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho tapped Mauricio Pellegrino on the arm and clasped hands with a rather surprised Southampton manager before bidding his farewell individually to each of the home team’s staff and then walking, with a studied air of disdain, away from his bench at St Mary’s Stadium. The game had not yet finished and this was not one of Mournho’s usual pre-final whistle stunts, rather the Manchester United manager had been sent off, which did at least allow him to bask in the place he loves to be. That being right in the spotlight, and with his team just one goal up and Southampton having hammered on the door all second half, it could not be discounted that Mourinho had cooked this one up. He encroached on the pitch when Southampton flooded forward in injury-time, the United manager frantically pointing his players into the positions he wanted them. He then styled it out as heat-of-the-moment stuff, wrapping a friendly arm around the waist of Mike Jones, the fourth … [Read more...] about Southampton 0 Man Utd 1: Romelu Lukaku strikes again but United fans ignore pleas to stop singing offensive song
AFP Premier League LIVE: Man Utd v Southampton updates from St Mary's Jose Mourinho is likely to make big changes to his Manchester United side for the trip to Southampton.Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial impressed against Burton in midweek and could keep their places, but Romelu Lukaku is likely to start up front.Star midfielder Paul Pogba is out with a hamstring problem and either Ander Herrera or Marouane Fellaini are likely to take his place.Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino is up for the challenge: "When we play against the biggest team in the world, it allows us to draw some conclusions about how we are."This is for me the nice challenge and we have to strive for this."Playing against Manchester United is one of the most beautiful things.

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Sir Alex Ferguson was sat next to another Manchester legend during the club’s 4-0 win over Everton. Simply Red front-man Mick Hucknall occupied the coveted seat at Old Trafford, next to Fergie, but the two didn’t look impressed with United’s efforts in the first half. Fergie was seen with his arms crossed over his chest, while Mick Hucknall fiddled in his pocket and then pulled out the team-sheet for the match. Social media users jumped at the opportunity to get the singer trending, but some were savage in their response to seeing him sat in the stands at Old Trafford. Many commented on Hucknall’s appearance, while others wondered if Sir Alex had to explain the offside rule. Fergie could provide the commentary on the action, while Hucknall could serenade the 75-year-old with some of Simply Red’s biggest hits. Fergie didn’t look impressed with the game, perhaps Hucknall had to remind him that he needed to stop ‘holding … [Read more...] about The Reds’ legendary manager was spotted watching Man Utd v Everton with Simply Red front man

Jose Mourinho revealed before this game that David de Gea would be staying at Manchester United after Real Madrid pulled the plug on a deal to sign the Spain goalkeeper. But De Gea offered the European champions a timely reminder of what they are missing out on with a series of heroics in an otherwise lamentable penalty shoot-out. Only three of 10 penalties were converted, with De Gea saving from Mateo Kovacic and Oscar. Casemiro, whose spot-kick had cancelled out Jesse Lingard’s goal in regulation time, had to score Real’s fifth shoot-out penalty but rattled his shot against the crossbar and over. Mourinho had been prepared to let De Gea leave after making it clear he will not hold players against their will in the belief that their performance level only dips. But with Real struggling to fund a move for the £125 million-rated Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe and a £60 million bid for De Gea, the Spanish giants opted to withdrawn from negotiations for the United … [Read more...] about Man Utd 1 Real Madrid 1 (United win 2-1 on penalties): Anthony Martial produces dazzling skill and David de Gea proves his worth

Jose Mourinho revealed prior to Manchester United’s tie with St Etienne that Paul and Florentin Pogba’s mum couldn’t decide which son she wanted to win. It also seems she couldn’t decide which club’s colours to wear either. Yeo Pogba was torn as her sons faced each other for the first time in a competitive match. Jose Mourinho revealed she was hoping for a draw in the Europa League tie. ‘I think only Mum Pogba is in a little bit of trouble, which is normal,’ said the Manchester United manager. ‘It’s impossible for the lady to choose. I know from Paul that the mum wants a draw, but next week one son will be happy and another one will be sad.’ So Yeo wore the perfect jersey for the meeting at Old Trafford – a half-and-half Manchester United and St Etienne shirt.

Former Sunderland striker Marco Gabbiadini was impressed by the performance of namesake Manolo. Manolo Gabbiadini rekindled memories of his namesake Marco on Wearside as Southampton cruised to a 4-0 Premier League victory at bottom-of-the-table Sunderland. It will be 30 years in September since Marco Gabbiadini arrived at Roker Park in an £80,000 switch from York and forged a partnership with Eric Gates which brought him 87 goals and a permanent place in the hearts of Black Cats' supporters. But Southampton's £14.6million January signing from Napoli left Sunderland fans cursing his surname as he scored a first-half double to set the visitors on the road to just a second league win in eight attempts, with Jason Denayer's own goal and a fourth from substitute Shane Long completing the rout. TWEET OF THE MATCH "Then again, I think he might be related? #SUNSOU @Mgabbia23" - former favourite Marco Gabbiadini's observation on the clincial exploits of the man who shares … [Read more...] about Sunderland v Southampton – story of the match
