Chelsea have denied making contact with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola about becoming the club's next manager.

It was claimed on Monday that Guardiola had declared himself open to the idea of moving to Stamford Bridge next summer.

Robin van Persie says he and Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney are reinventing the traditional strike partnership.

The Dutch forward has described himself and Rooney as 'nine-and-a-halfs' in terms of their positioning, and believes they have the makings of something special.

Arsene Wenger has conceded that Arsenal are already too far behind the leaders to mount a challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The defeat to Manchester United leaves the Gunners nine points off the pace only 10 games into the campaign.

Roberto Mancini says he deserves respect for his record at Manchester City, rather than speculation about his future at the club.

It was revealed last week that the Italian almost left Manchester for Ligue 2 club Monaco during the summer.

Andre Villas-Boas was unhappy with Jermain Defoe's reaction to being substituted on Saturday, but says he has no problem with the Tottenham striker.

Defoe stormed straight down the tunnel when he was removed from proceedings during the weekend defeat to Wigan.
