Trending: Jose Mourinho open to selling Man United's Wayne Rooney

Craig Burley starts steaming up at the wretched state Jose Mourinho and Manchester United currently find themselves in.
Jose Mourinho refused to comment on Martin Atkinson's decision regarding David Luiz's high challenge.
City may be better off with a pile of stones in defence and Mourinho still knows how to motivate Chelsea in The Sweeper.
Despite recent criticism of Wayne Rooney, Jurgen Klopp is not downplaying his ability.

Here are the latest stories for Tuesday.

MAN UNITED: Jose Mourinho is open to selling Wayne Rooney, sources have told ESPN FC, as the Manchester United manager plans to continue an overhaul of the squad in the wake of a chaotic start to the season.

Mourinho has warned his players there is "no way to hide" and challenged them to show they are "men'' by recovering from the 4-0 humiliation at Chelsea by beating Manchester City in the EFL Cup.

Ozil, Benzema, Coutinho among stars overlooked for Ballon d'Or nomination

The ESPN FC guys discuss the front-runners for the Ballon d'Or, making a case for Luis Suarez to be among the top three.
Take a look back at Lionel Messi's season that sees him on the 2016 Ballon d'Or shortlist.
After a stellar year full of personal bests, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the top contenders to take home the coveted award.
A look at some of the players who could challenge Messi and Ronaldo for the 2016 Ballon d'Or.
The guys answer your tweets on the best manager in the world, the top Ballon d'Or candidates, and Conte's celebrations.

Jamie Vardy's inclusion aside, France Football's 30-man list of nominees for the 2016 Ballon d'Or had a familiar look to it.

Cristiano Ronaldo, the current holder, and five-time winner Lionel Messi will once again be in the final reckoning with Luis Suarez, Neymar and Antoine Griezmann among the other candidates hoping to make the final three-man shortlist for January's award ceremony.

But there were several star names and big achievers of the current calendar year who were conspicuous by their...

Jose Mourinho under pressure, Barca's gritty win, young Milan stun Juventus

Man United were torn apart by Chelsea, with a host of defensive errors, the FC panel address where the real issues lie.

Jose Mourinho is right. Games start at 0-0. Manchester United's trip to Stamford Bridge effectively began with Chelsea a goal up, a function of some absurd collective defending from David De Gea, Chris Smalling and Daley Blind. (For De Gea, such a mental error was hugely uncharacteristic. For the other two, not so much.) Implied in this is that United had to chase the game, and that's always hard to do away from home, especially when Chelsea could then sit back, defend and counter.

It's a nice...

Chelsea are better equipped when fashioned in Conte's tactical image

The ESPN FC crew discuss Chelsea's improved form and Antonio Conte's influence over the team.
Antonio Conte stressed that beating Manchester United was important for Chelsea's ambition going forward.
Antonio Conte's gestures to Chelsea fans late in their win over Man United receive a mixed reaction from the ESPN FC crew.

Chelsea's consummate thrashing of Manchester United last Sunday underlined the belief of many Blues supporters that Antonio Conte, if given sufficient latitude by the club's notoriously impatient owner Roman Abramovich, has the managerial ability and tactical nous to bring the glory days back to Stamford Bridge.

A notable absentee, Abramovich would have been all smiles at the way Conte and his players emphatically laid the ghost of former boss Jose Mourinho to rest had he been present to witness...

ESPN FC's Craig Burley labelled Manchester United a shambles following their Chelsea humiliation.

Antonio Conte recorded his most emphatic Premier League victory to date as Chelsea capitalised on a defensive horror show from Manchester United that could hardly have been further removed from their assured display at Liverpool six days earlier.

For the third time in three games, the Italian's 3-4-3 delivered three points and a clean sheet -- this time it was 4-0 -- yet Jose Mourinho was also right to lament how United's early blunder, committed after 29 seconds, created a game situation suited...

Heroes & Villains: Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte joy, Jose Mourinho woe

Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 4-0 win over Man United and gives his player ratings for Jose Mourinho's side.

The Premier League is full of fun, isn't it? Iain Macintosh looks at the weekend's best and worst performances.


Meet the new boss, nothing like the old boss. Against their former manager, Antonio Conte's Chelsea were fast, fluid and ferocious, and they fully deserve all the plaudits coming their way. Held by Swansea and beaten by Liverpool and Arsenal, Conte had the mandate he required to tear up the whole system and start again with a back three. It has worked wonders. In three games,...
