Premier League Week 5 Football (Soccer)

Updated on September 16, 2015

Chelsea and Barcelona eye Martial

Chelsea were preparing to sign £58million Anthony Martial - while Barcelona, PSG and Man City were also eyeing him - which is why Manchester United paid a premium and moved for the French youngster so swiftly according to Daily mail

Martial, 19, has made 70 appearances for AS Monaco since joining in 2013 and has scored 15 goals. The forward has represented his country from Under-16 level right through to Under-21, and was called up to France's senior national squad for the first time on 28 August.

But on Saturday evening he announced himself to the world with a stunning individual goal that will make other clubs, sit up and take notice.

However the game itself proved to be exactly that a game of two halves. Man Utd much better in the second bossing the overall game with 55.7% possession.

Brendan Rogers must be seriously worried about his future after splashing out £77.5m and then playing his new and old recruits in odd positions.

His next two games are crucial to his survival away to Bordeaux and then home to Norwich. Both fixtures at this early stage of the season must wins.

Mourinho has lost it

Only 1994/95 champions Blackburn got off to a worse start after winning the Premier League, taking just three points from their first four games of the following campaign.

Has father time caught up with John Terry and Branislav Ivanović ? The latter looks a shadow of past seasons, he seems hell bent on not giving hand balls away also on not defending with his style of not quite running at the ball with his hands behind his back. Totally understandable when the ball is in the penalty area but I really have no idea what is in his head outside.

J.T on the other hand has never been blessed with pace looks suddenly like a league 2 defender.

Take nothing away from Everton who looked the better side from start to finish.

The question I would like to pose to Mourinho is have a go boxer £32m Diego Costa better than £28m Romelu Lukaku

He tends to favour the older players despite thier form or ability also to wasting vast sums on money

Lavishing £27m on Juan Cuadrado and £11m Mohamed Salah, never mind Kevin de Brune when he already has travelling Victor Moses,never mind Kevin de Brune only to loan out the 2 former. Maybe the team is now lacking cohesion that’s why they are 1 place above the bottom 3

Mourinho Not such a good judge of players

He no longer can take risk on a younger player
