Afternoon Report: October 7
Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Barcelona news
Vincent Kompany will undergo another scan today after being forced out of Saturday's 3-1 win against Everton. The City captain has already missed three league matches this term, but the new groin injury is thought to be unrelated to the problem that kept him out earlier this season.
Jose Mourinho has dismissed the notion that Chelsea are trying to copy Bayern Munich's playing style. The Chelsea boss said he makes the most of his side's strengths, and rejected suggestions that the Blues were playing a Pep Guardiola-style brand of football.
Andre Villas-Boas felt Spurs were unlucky not to score against West Ham after the Hammers recorded a shock 3-0 away win at White Hart Lane. The Tottenham manager felt his side deserved to take the lead, but conceded the Hammers were better at taking their chances.
Phil Jones has hailed a battling display in the Reds' comeback win away at Sunderland. The United defender called it a "massive three points" following the defeat to West Brom and a "sign of champions" as United fought back to overturn a first-half deficit.
Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Jack Wilshere after the midfielder rescued a point for Arsenal against West Brom. The Arsenal boss was delighted with the England midfielder's contribution despite playing out of position, as Wilshere scored a 25-yard strike to level the scores at 1-1.
Marc Bartra is enjoying his run in the first-team but the 22-year-old academy graduate insists he's still got a lot to improve on. Bartra featured against Valladolid at the weekend, as the Nou Camp giants ran out 4-1 winners.
