Premier League!! Stoke City 1-0 Arsenal (RESULT)

Published

on

Former Real Madrid winger Jese Rodriguez enjoyed a dream start to his Stoke City career by scoring the winner as Arsenal again came unstuck at the Bet365 Stadium.

Jese, who was thrust straight into Mark Hughes’ side after arriving from Paris St-Germain on Wednesday, slid in from a tight angle after being left unmarked to pick up Saido Berahino’s pass.

The Spaniard’s strike came just 90 seconds into the second half, after an opening 45 minutes the visitors had dominated.

Arsenal thought they had equalised when Alexandre Lacazette rifled in, only for the France striker to be ruled offside.

The Gunners continued to press in the closing stages, but Stoke remained resolute to earn their first win of the Premier League season.

Who was your man of match???

Mourinho: I wanted to play Martial

Published

on

Manchester United started the Premier League season with a 2-1 win over Leicester. Captain Paul Pogba scored from the penalty spot before Luke Shaw scored his first career goal to double the score. Substitute Jamie Vardy scored a late equaliser.

After having such little time with the first team following the World Cup, with many of the players returning to first team training as recently as Monday, Jose Mourinho acknowledged that his players were tired and not match fit.

Anthony Martial, whose agent has claimed on more than one occasion this summer that the player wants out of the club, was an unused substitute but Mourinho claims he wanted to play the forward.

I needed six changes not three, three weren’t enough for me. I want to play Martial for Mata or Alexis but I couldn’t. Paul Pogba couldn’t play 90 minutes, Fred the same. I needed more changes, but I couldn’t so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.

I feel I wanted more attack and I feel that Martial coming into the game in the last 20 minutes for Alexis could have given us the second goal to kill the game. But I couldn’t make that change, so it was really hard. But the players gave everything, they gave what they had. I told them to give everything they had. You have 10 minutes, you give 10 minutes. Marouane told me he couldn’t give me more than 10 minutes, okay but give me 10 minutes. Everybody did that in a fantastic way.

Published

on

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has explained why Paul Pogba was handed the team’s captain band in their Premier League game against Leicester City on Friday.

Mourinho started the French midfielder in Friday night’s Premier League opener after just a few days’ training.

Pogba scored from the penalty spot to give United the lead in the first half with Luke adding the second goal late in the second half.

Pogba had his first training session on Monday but impressed to such an extent with his application and physical condition that he was picked to start.

The Portuguese coach handed Pogba the captaincy.

Asked about the significance of making Pogba captain, Mourinho told Sky Sportsm, “Last season, he was captain a few times.

“Valencia is captain, but Valencia is not here.

“Paul is one of the options, third season, made in the academy, understands the club, the culture, good relationship with his teammates and a good example today putting himself in the team.”
