Why Anthony Martial Performed Poorly Against Brighton

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has claimed that Anthony Martial performed poorly due to lack of supply from Paul Pogba during their loss against Brighton.

The Frenchman was tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer, following reports that the winger is ready to leave the club due to his lack of chances under Jose Mourinho.

The United team performed poorly against the Brigton, as Martial was withdrawn after 60 minutes as they fought to get back into the game.

The young winger replaced injured Alexis Sanchez in the first eleven at Amex stadium, but could not make an impact and Scholes believes Paul Pogba should have him more supply during the game.

Following United 3-2 defeat in hands of Brighton, Scholes told Optus Sport that Pogba was not measuring his passes and should have done more when the team was 3-1 down, and could not control the game from the midfield to bring in his attackers.

Pogba has come under intense criticisms from the Old Trafford faithfuls due to his lacklustre performances but was on show as they thumped Leicester City in their opening game as the French midfielder captained the team amid speculations of a strained relationship with Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has also come out to debunk talks about the bitter feud between both of them, claiming he would not have asked for more from Pogba.

This player will make Arsenal title contenders

Nathan Ake

If i’m not exaggerating, Arsenal are presently one of best teams in the Premier League and they are capable of challenging Manchester City for this season’s Premier League trophy.

The Gunners have been able to turn things around under Unai Emery and they now look more dangerous and determined to lift their first Premier League trophy in 12 years anytime soon.

After 16 matches, the Gunners have recorded just two defeats, the best unbeaten run they’ve recorded after the 2003-04 invincibility.

Irrespective of their wonderful form, the Gunners need to add at some players to their squad in the next transfer market.

Despite their unbeaten record, the Emirates outfits have not been convincing at the back of the pitch. Emery has watched his players conceded 23 goals in 16 matches, a confirmation that there is an urgent need to add a quality defender to his backline as soon as possible.

Apart from the unimpressive defensive record, Emery has got to add one or two players to his team. This is because the Gunners are presently depleted as results of injuries to key members of the team.

One player that Emery should be targeting in January is Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake.

Since his move out of Stamford Bridge, the defender has developed every aspects of his game. His quality and no-nonsense character has made the Cherries looked more solid and organized at the back.

Ake is not afraid to make sliding tackles, neither is he scared to engage in aerial duels against opponents. His ability to make breathtaking tackles and off-the-line clearance are just too awesome.

Apart from ensuring great display at the heart of defence, Ake is also good at the left side of defence.

Arsenal are lacking quality players at the left-back position. Nacho Monreal is far becoming too old to cope with the stressful and rigorous nature of the League.

Sead Kolasinac, who was brought to the Emirates stadium as the Spaniard’s replacement two seasons ago, hasn’t live up to his billing and reports are claiming he could be sold out to interested clubs in January should he fail to improve.

It’s important to know that he is just 23 years of age, this means that Arsenal are securing their long-term future should they eventually capture Ake’s signature.

The agile defender will help bring more quality to the team at the back for many seasons to come, hence, the Gunners won’t have any reason to search for a new center-back in nearest future except there are injury crises.

Gerrard Won’t Block Unsettled Liverpool Loanee From Leaving

Ovie Ejaria

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed that he won’t block unsettled winger Ovie Ejaria from leaving the Scottish Premier League giants.

Gerrard spoke about Ovie Ejaria during his pre-match press conference ahead of the league game against Hamilton on Sunday.

The 21-year-old is said to be unsettled at the club and that he’s keen to return to England.

Nigerian-born English player Ejaria is on a season-long loan from Premier League leaders Liverpool.

The winger has made 28 appearances for Rangers in all competitions.

Ovie Ejaria didn’t travel with the Rangers squad to Austria for their Europa League clash with Rapid Wien on Thursday night.

Rangers were knocked out of the competition following a 1-0 loss to the Austrians.

With the latest development, Ovie Ejaria might have played his last game for the Scottish giants.

He would be the second Rangers loanee to go back to his club after Nigerian striker Umar Sadiq was sent back to Italian Serie A giants AS Roma after four appearances.

The loan spell of Umar Sadiq was cut short for non-performance on the path of the Nigerian.

Steven Gerrard would be hoping to bring in reinforcements when the transfer window reopens in the bid to maintain his team’s push for the league title.

why chelsea did not sign Kalidou Koulibaly

Liverpool could reportedly challenge Premier League rivals Manchester United for Kalidou Koulibaly when the January transfer window reopens in two weeks time.

This is according to the publication from popular media outlet Hitc.

Senegalese international centre back Koulibaly plays his club football for Italian Serie A giants Napoli at the moment.

Liverpool have been thrown into a mini-crisis in defence following the injuries to two centre backs namely Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.

Both players have been ruled out until the New Year and the aforementioned publication believes that these injuries could force the Reds into the market when the transfer window reopens.

Kalidou Koulibaly could be an option for Liverpool but they will have to contend with Chelsea and Manchester United especially.

The 27-year-old was a summer target for Chelsea when Maurizio Sarri was appointed as the new manager.

Many football stakeholders expected him to follow Sarri to Chelsea from Napoli just like what happened to his former teammate Jorginho but nothing came out of the Chelsea transfer rumours.

Manchester United have emerged as favourites for his signature in recent weeks with reports claiming that Napoli have already turned down two Red Devils bid and that it will take over £100m to prise him away from his present club.
