Everton boss Roberto Martinez has suggested that Manchester United’s pursuit of Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines has unsettled the pair.

The reigning Premier League champions had a joint bid dismissed earlier this week and Martinez believes it has affected the players in a very, very unfair manner.

Marouane Chamakh has claimed a malicious blackmail plot scuppered his chances of succeeding at Arsenal.

The Moroccan international was involved in a police investigation in 2011, and believes the stress caused contributed to his dramatic dip in form.

Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles says his former club have little chance of winning the Premier League this season.

Spurs were tipped for a title challenge following their summer spending spree, but Ardiles believes it is too soon for them to challenge for the top spot.

Jose Mourinho fears he may have made a mistake with his team selection in their 2-1 victory over Aston Villa last night.

The manager made just two changes from the team that beat Hull at the weekend and fears fatigue may already be affecting several players.

Vincent Kompany will miss Manchester City’s match against Cardiff on Sunday after scans failed to reveal the severity of his groin injury.

The captain was injured in City’s season opener against Newcastle and sources indicate he could miss up to four weeks.

Barcelona’s hopes of signing Thiago Silva have faded after the Brazilian agreed a one-year contract extension with PSG.

Silva’s new deal will see him stay at Parc des Princes until 2018, ending any speculation of a move in the process.
