Fikayo Tomori hoping to emulate John Terry at Chelsea

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is hoping to emulate John Terry by staying put with the club for the long-term. The England international made his breakthrough under Frank Lampard in early September and his consistent performances over the next few months contributed to him making his debut for the England national side.


However, Tomori has since struggled to command a regular run of games due to form and fitness concerns but he is determined to prove his worth to the manager while emulating the path taken by club legend Terry, he told: “Obviously we had John Terry who had made that step from the Academy and he was the player I looked at when thinking of the pathway to the first team.

Paul Scholes criticises Martial after Manchester United’s win at Chelsea

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has remained critical over the performance of Anthony Martial despite the fact that he was on the scoresheet against Chelsea on Monday night. The Frenchman had a relatively quiet opening half but he managed to find the breakthrough before the break after heading in the opening goal.


In the second period, he faced a similar situation with the inability to provide the threat and ended the game with just 19 successful passes. Speaking on Sky Sports, Scholes once again questioned the natural position of Martial and insisted that the Frenchman is more of a winger than a centre-forward.

Ferdinand defends Solskjaer after United’s FA Cup draw vs Wolves

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has supported manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the Red Devils’ frustrating 0-0 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup. Both teams made multiple changes to the starting lineup for the Cup tie but the Red Devils were certainly the less efficient on the attack as they failed to muster a single shot on target.

As a result, there has already been widespread criticism from a number of fans over the outcome of the game but Ferdinand has defended his former teammate by stating that the inconsistency will remain present with a young squad at Solskjaer’s disposal, he told: “It was a better second half but both teams lacked quality in the final third especially. They huffed and puffed until the got to the final third, there wasn’t any quality into the box or into either front man for us to see a bit of magic. You never came off your seat once in the whole game. Not super clearly yet. I still think it’s a work in progress, the problem has been the inconsistency.”

Robson highlights Manchester United problem for winter transfer window

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has said that the winter transfer window will be crucial for the Red Devils, considering they have made a poor beginning to the current campaign. The Mancunian giants have already made their worst-ever start to a Premier League season and they are currently in the lower half of the standings with just nine points on the board.

In an interview with ESPN, Robson has said that the Red Devils are likely to find it hard to pursue new recruits at the turn of the year but they have no other choice, considering the shambles at the opening phase of the season, he told: “I always think it’s really difficult to find top class players who are prepared to leave a club and join a club in the January window. Normally you have to wait until the summer to add really quality players. But United have got to work at that, because we know that we need to improve to be where Manchester United want to be, so January’s going to be an important part of the season.”

Maguire believes he can form a defensive partnership with Lindelof

Manchester United’s summer signing Harry Maguire has said that he can form a strong central defensive partnership with Victor Lindelof, though it would require some time. The England international has been a valuable addition to the Red Devils backline but that has not necessarily improved the clean sheet tally with just two from the opening five games.

Speaking to MUTV, Maguire said that partnerships are built by playing games and he has shared the playing field with Lindelof on just five occasions, he told: “You have to realise partnerships are built on playing games and we have only had five games. We will get better. I will understand him more and he will understand me more. There probably will be times when we can do better but we will continue to work hard on the training pitch and that is really important to build relationships around the pitch – not just me and Victor. It is really important, as a defence, to keep a clean sheet.”

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has said that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought back the club’s identity after blooding a number of younger players during the pre-season campaign. The Red Devils have remained unbeaten in their five friendly games this summer and there have been plenty of positives with several young players getting the chance to impress.

This season, especially, I think we have to concentrate on ourselves and play like we’re enjoying our football. We’re in an exciting position.

TalkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino has said that Manchester United should part ways with Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku this summer and utilise the funds for the squad rebuild. The Red Devils have changed the focus to pursuing young players for the summer transfer window but there has been some disruption with the uncertain futures of Pogba and Lukaku.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Cascarino said that both Pogba and Lukaku are great assets to the team but they have the tendency to be inconsistent. He added that the duo can command huge transfer sums in the market and the club should sanction their sales to initiate a rebuild which may require a minimum of two transfer windows.
