Manchester United’s mixed transfer window: Bavarian bargain and a flip-flop

theguardian.com — It is a wide, straight road leading to Manchester United's training ground, with the power station on the right, the riding school on the left and the burger bar, Gail's, where a few years ago Gary Neville and brother Phil filmed that mobile-phone advert, huddled under the canopy, sheltering from a Mancunian downpour and blowing into their steaming mugs of tea as their old mate David Beckham sent them picture-messages of life in sunny Madrid.

Manchester United 3-1 Club Brugge

theguardian.com — It was the night Memphis Depay introduced himself properly to Old Trafford and, in the process, provided the compelling evidence that Manchester United might have found an ideal wearer of the No 7 shirt that means so much to this club.

Chelsea’s losses: one key game, two doctors and a lot of confidence

theguardian.com — The first thing to say about the almost implausible and strangely dishevelled way that Chelsea have started the season is that anyone wishing to dance on José Mourinho's grave had better make sure the coffin is firmly nailed down first.

Manchester City 3-0 Chelsea

theguardian.com — It was a win, one imagines, the entire medical profession will toast. Well, apart from the two physiotherapists in Chelsea colours who came on during the first half, dropped some of their equipment, missed the fact there were two injured players rather than one and gave Manchester City's gloating supporters the chance to add to José Mourinho's serious discomfort on the touchline.
