They plugged away and did create some chances late on, mostly through Youssoufa Moukoko, but obviously this is disappointing. You knew what Union were going to do: it’s reasonable to expect you to come up with a game plan to counter it more effectively. It took Tottenham a while to break down Everton, but this game was never really in doubt, other than the odd counterattack from the visitors. Spurs made it eight wins from eight games across all competitions at home and this offers a confidence boost as well after some patchy outings. Dan Thomas is joined by Craig Burley, Shaka Hislop and others to bring you the latest highlights and debate the biggest storylines.
)– Dawson: Ronaldo makes feelings known as Man United fall shortIt’s also odd to see him go on about the goal referee Craig Pawson disallowed after Ronaldo stole the ball as Nick Pope was about to take a free kick. It’s not Ronaldo’s fault it was clever thinking and maybe Pawson had signalled for play to restart. But it has zero to do with how United played. More of a concern, as I see it, ought to be how this team operates without Christian Eriksen, the drab performance by Bruno Fernandes and the fact that Ronaldo (disallowed goals excluded) managed just one shot on goal. If you’re going to start him up front — and it’s only the second time he has done it in the league — you need to make sure your team gets him service.
Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille closed out the weekend with an enjoyable game that saw Igor Tudor’s crew enjoy plenty of possession but PSG carve out the most dangerous chances. And we even saw Kylian Mbappe record his first assist of the season, setting up Neymar for the game’s only goal. Mbappe also denied reports that he asked PSG to let him go and that signing a new deal at the Parc des Princes was a mistake. He said he was “napping” when the news came out and that his entourage were all watching his brother play in a youth game.
I’m pretty sure the entire French media didn’t just make that story up: if they had, you can be sure PSG would have denied it rather than simply hiding behind a “no comment. ”– Mbappe denies PSG exit rumorsI get it: he said what he felt he needs to say and now he doesn’t want the headache, but he’s not helping himself by sending out mixed messages. It would be far easier to simply state: “Guys, I don’t know what the future will bring but right now I’m just focused on PSG and winning the Champions League and Ligue 1.
) Rather, the maturity extends to the coach and the approach to the game. Xavi has been doing it for three years, his opposite number Carlo Ancelotti for three decades. And give Xavi credit, he is the first to take responsibility, saying he will never blame players since he picks them, after all, and they go out there following his instructions. So if he’s going to take it on the chin, what should he be doing differently? Exhibit A, as I see it, is his use of wide players (or non-use, except as a sub, in the case of Ansu Fati).

What’s more, while he too encouraged long spells of possession, especially initially, it was purposeful possession, designed to open gaps for Andres Iniesta and Xavi to go vertical when necessary. We see little of this in the current Barca side, despite the fact that in Pedri and Gavi he has the players to do it. And as a result, we see less of Robert Lewandowski than we should, or rather, we see fewer dimensions of him: in real life he can pass, he can hold up play and he can drop to link play for midfield runners (all things he did at Bayern), but at Barca he’s mostly just a goal scorer.
With the 1-0 win Sunday over Leeds United, the count now stands at 27 of a possible 30 points for Mikel Arteta’s crew. Unlike previous outings, they did not play particularly well against Leeds and, in fact, but for VAR things might have turned out rather differently. It’s worth noting because this game was delayed due to tech issues with VAR and had it gone ahead without it (as some argued it should have), Leeds would have had a penalty and Gabriel a red card after Patrick Bamford ran into the Brazilian defender and then pretended he’d been fouled (so much for the stereotypes, eh? ). Arsenal struggled against a very well drilled Leeds side who probably deserved more. There are lessons to be learned here for Arteta.
Yes, he scored some big goals in big games for Liverpool, but he’s also a guy who started just 13 league games in four years at Anfield. This was his eighth appearances in all competitions for Milan this season and we’ve yet to see him have much of an impact. That matters, because Milan’s other strikers are Olivier Giroud (who is now 36) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (who is 41 and has yet to play this season). Beyond that, you’re forced to recycle Ante Rebic (who has an entirely different skill set) up front.
Stream on ESPN+ (U. only). Antonio Conte doesn’t usually change systems that work, so it was interesting to note that after Richarlison went down injured early in the second half, he sent on Yves Bissouma and switched to a 3-5-2. With Dejan Kulusevski unavailable and Lucas Moura only just back from his injury, it was the logical thing to do, but equally Bissouma was one of their big summer signings and had featured little thus far, with Conte opting for the Rodrigo Bentancur-Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg partnership.

Bissouma was very effective, and I suspect we may see this 3-5-2 for a while (not just until Richarlison or Kulusevski return). Against certain opponents, especially those who defend deeper, it can be a more effective option. Milan hardly sparkled in their 2-1 win away to Verona and, in fact, they seemed to hang on for dear life at the end against a physical, high-energy opponent that man-marked all over the pitch. Sandro Tonali got the winner capping off a nice combination with Ante Rebic and the victory keeps them third, just three points behind Napoli. Given the many absences and the fallout from the midweek spanking at the hands of Chelsea in the Champions League, coach Stefano Pioli will take it. We did see Divock Origi play the entire second half and, incredible as it may sound, this is his second longest stint on the pitch since 2021. For a club that have been so careful with their signings, going for youth and value, backed up by analytics and numbers, Origi’s pick up always felt strange.
It’s a first baby step on the way back, like putting a towel on an open wound while you figure out what to do next. As for Max Allegri, his decision to drop captain Leo Bonucci raised eyebrows, and some speculated the veteran defender was ready to move on. The simple fact though is that his options at the back are very limited. Danilo, who started against Torino, is a recycled full-back, Allegri doesn’t seem to be a fan of Federico Gatti and Daniele Rugani is nothing to write home about. These two need each other, at least for now. Shaka Hislop says Arsenal deserved their hard-fought win over Leeds after an excellent start to the season.
Which is far from ideal. Shaka Hislop finds it hard to understand how Fred and Marcus Rashford both missed chances to win the game late on for Manchester United vs. Newcastle. OK, so Newcastle United are a good side who played well, Manchester United won the xG battle and Marcus Rashford’s header at the end could have won the game. (And, you imagine, if that had been Cristiano Ronaldo, whom Rashford substituted, it would have won them the game. ) But it was a bit weird to see Erik ten Hag talking about how well his team played and being so chipper in discussing how his men deserved “a big compliment” for withstanding Newcastle’s physicality. (Sure, they play hard, but they’re not Tony Pulis’ Stoke either.
