Trending: Jose Mourinho hits back at 'Einsteins'; Inter eye Pablo Zabaleta

The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba has not been discouraged, despite recent criticism of Man United's big-money signing.

Here are the latest stories for Friday.

MAN UNITEDManchester United manager Jose Mourinho hit back at "Einsteins" after Paul Pogba scored twice in a 4-1 win over Fenerbahce on Thursday, saying that the critics would rapidly change their opinions.

- Michael Owen has questioned former teammate Wayne Rooney's decision to allow Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial to take penalties.

- Howard Webb believes Jose Mourinho should be sanctioned by the Football Association for mind games over...

Arsenal must remain focused among easier run of fixtures

Paul Mariner and Mark Donaldson talk whether Arsenal have the team chemistry this year to win the League.

There are times when the Premier League's fixture list can seem like a stern headmaster: cruel, relentless, unforgiving and ready to give you kick up the backside at any moment. Other times it's more like a kindly aunt who knows you don't want an itchy knitted jumper for Christmas and gives you cash to spend on whatever you like instead.

October is Arsenal's lovely aunt, throwing up Burnley, Swansea, Ludogorets, Middlesbrough and Sunderland, with three of those five games at home. So far the Gunners...

Sir Alex Ferguson applauds Robin van Persie goal at Old Trafford

A Paul Pogba first-half double helped Manchester United on their way to a 4-1 thrashing of Turkish side, Fenerbahce.

Thursday night saw Robin van Persie make a competitive return to Old Trafford for the first time since leaving Manchester United somewhat reluctantly in the summer of 2015.

Indeed, Van Persie received a hero's welcome on the night despite his Fenerbahce team finding themselves on the wrong end of a rather comprehensive thrashing.

Still, the Dutch striker did eventually manage to muster a consolation, tapping home from close range in the 83rd minute to make the score 4-1 and thus preserving a crumb...

Crystal Palace need to strike better balance in attack vs. Leicester

Christian Benteke doesn't quite fit this Palace team yet but Alan Pardew needs to involve him more vs. Leicester.

Crystal Palace have been suffering recently from an inability to start matches in a convincing fashion and whether it's a case of failing to take chances or failing to create them, Alan Pardew's side have laboured through the opening halves of ties. Half-time typically sees a change in style and approach. It doesn't always take a substitution, but there is usually a marked improvement from the players. Against Sunderland and Everton, these changes resulted in Palace fighting their way back to...

A revitalised Victor Moses is enjoying life at Antonio Conte's Chelsea

The guys address your tweets about Raheem Sterling, Victor Moses and the Americans who could join Bob Bradley at Swansea.
Victor Moses didn't get much of a look-in under Jose Mourinho, but Antonio Conte's arrival at Chelsea has changed that.

LONDON -- After three years as a Premier League nomad, Victor Moses is finally back where he always wanted to be.

And as he sits in a room overlooking the sun-drenched first-team training pitch at Chelsea's Cobham training complex, there is more than a hint of indignation in his words at the fact he has been made to wait this long.

"I'm delighted to be back," Moses told ESPN FC. "I thought I did well in my first season here, but due to circumstances -- a manager going, a manager coming in -- I wasn't...

Bayern take on bogey side Gladbach with Joshua Kimmich on form

Carlo Ancelotti says the 70 good minutes Bayern Munich played against PSV are still not good enough.

After letting a lead slip twice in successive Bundesliga games, Bayern Munich host bogey side Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday -- a team the German champions have failed to beat in their four previous meetings.

Gladbach or "a German Team" -- as they are now better known after their splendid piece of self-depreciation went viral -- can easily boast the best record (two wins and two draws) against Bayern (and Pep Guardiola) in recent seasons. The Foals ended Bayern's unbeaten run last December...
