Allowing two goals to League One outfit Bristol Rovers will give Antonio Conte more to ponder with the Chelsea defence.

Here are the latest stories for Wednesday.

- Meanwhile, Conte has said only John Terry and Sam Allardyce can decide whether the Chelsea captain...

It's still early days, but Anthony Martial has yet to rekindle the magic of his first season with Manchester United.

With all the excitement for Manchester United fans following their team's start to the season, which has even seen the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Anthony Valencia play well, one player who is yet to impress is Anthony Martial.

As arguably United's best performing outfield player last season, Martial returned to United's preseason training later than most of his teammates after France made the final of Euro 2016, delaying the start of his summer holiday.
