Manchester United beat Tottenham 3-0 last night in a clinical display that saw goals from Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Wayne Rooney.

Sir Alex Ferguson hailed his side after the game, highlighting the contribution of the young players, including Welbeck and Tom Cleverley.

Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and David de Gea also excelled in a United side with an average age of just over 23.


 

Despite defeat, Harry Redknapp was pleased with his side’s display, insisting Spurs held their own for the majority of the game.

But he admitted that Spurs faded and played too open, leaving the otherwise impressive Brad Friedel exposed for United’s goals.

Redknapp also revealed last night that he was confident deals for Emmanuel Adebayor and Lassana Diarra will be completed soon.

Manchester City have agreed a deal with Arsenal that will see Samir Nasri move to the Etihad Stadium in a deal reported to be worth £35 million.

Nasri has not travelled with the rest of the Arsenal squad for their Champions League qualifier, but instead heads north for a medical.

Arsene Wenger will now step up his interest in both Eden Hazard and Yann M’Vila in order to compensate for the loss of Nasri and Fabregas.

Kenny Dalglish is said to be preparing a shock move to bring Manchester City and Wales striker Craig Bellamy back to Anfield.

And finally, Neil Warnock wants to bring Joe Cole to QPR, with the former Chelsea and England midfielder out of favour at Liverpool.
