Anthony Martial scored a hat-trick, something they had seen at Old Trafford since the time of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The French striker had a great game against Sheffield United, scoring three goals, something that a Manchester United player had to achieve from the 2013-14 season, Sir Alex's last. Since then, 21 Premier League teams have seen their players score a hat-trick before Manchester United.
Kane: "I have no problem with the way the coach plays"
Unlike other Tottenham players, it seems that Harry Kane ... supports Jose Mourinho.
There are many who claim that "Special One" is not liked by all its footballers.
This is confirmed by the recent position of Tangi Entombele, who said that he does not want to work under the guidance of the Portuguese coach.
But that does not apply to Tottenham boss Harry Kane, who after several months of recovery is back at the disposal of "Special One". In fact, shortly after the 2-0 victory over West Ham, where he formed the final score, the international English striker commented:
"I have no problem with the way the coach plays. He is here to win, we are here to win. Obviously this season, we want to secure our place in the new Champions League and next season we will try to win a title. People and experts have their views. As for me, I feel very good. I am positive, in a very good condition and as I say, I can only do what I do and try not to listen to what is being said outside. "
Jενrgen Klopp is watching Thiago Alcantara
Thiago Alcantara has not renewed his contract with Bayern Munich and rumors of his departure are strong.
According to "Bild", Thiago Alcantara was in contact with the management of Bayern Munich, however he did not seem particularly receptive to the renewal of his contract. This fact has created a strong rumor for his departure, but also for the teams that will seek to include him in their roster.
According to the same source, the most likely future destination for the 29-year-old's career is Liverpool. Jκrgen Klopp is following the path of the Spanish media and moving to Merseyside does not seem at all unlikely.
Alcantara has scored three goals and two assists in 35 appearances for Munich this season. His contract with the Bavarians expires in June 2021.
150 different factions
Zinedine Zidane has made more than 150 different appearances during his two terms at Real.
Only Zinedine Zidane has not managed to get a hat out of hats while he is on the bench at Real Madrid. The French coach is particularly experimenting with the teams he is lining up with, which is shown by the numbers that are really stunning.
The "winning team doesn't change" should never have been heard by "Zizou" in his life. The eleven that the French line up, apart from being extremely effective, are also really countless. In 4 years of presence on the bench of the "queen" and a total of 202 matches, there have been a total of 178 different combinations! In addition, 48 different players started in the starting line-up for Zidane.
Of these, his favorites were Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Casimiro, Kroos, Montrich, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema. However, even this one started only 7 times, showing how many different choices the Frenchman made.
Still, "Zizou" is running a series of 15 games where he has not downloaded the same lineup more than 2 times in a row. Indicative of the fact that he gives opportunities to all his players, as even the "sidelined" Hames Rodrεςguez played.
Lionel Messi is making history once again
Lionel Messi reached 15 assists yesterday, something he is doing for the fifth time in his football career.
Lionel Messi is making history once again. He may not have scored in yesterday's victory of Barcelona against Athletic Bilbao (1-0), but his contribution was again decisive. The Argentine gave the assist to Ivan Rakitic, who scored the only goal of the match, and reached 15 for this season.
The "blaugrana" superstar is not reaching this percentage for the first time. Specifically, it is the fifth time in his football career that he reaches 15+ goals and 15+ assists in just one year. Also, this statistic only applies to La Liga.
The previous times that Messi reached similar numbers were:
2010-2011: 31 goals and 18 assists
2011-2012: 50 goals and 16 assists
2014-2015: 43 goals and 18 assists
2015-2016: 26 goals and 16 assists
For the record, Eden Hazard (twice), Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Jadon Sancho have reached the same distinction.

Pep Guardiola anointed Phil Fontaine as David Silva's successor at Manchester City.
Manchester City defeated Burnley 5-0, in the match with which the "curtain" of the 30th game of the English championship fell.
The 20-year-old English international midfielder, who had also scored in the match against Arsenal, scored two more goals the day before yesterday, forcing the Spanish coach to commit that he will have more playing time in the future:
"At the end of the season, David Silva will leave the team after ten years of great offer. "I told the management that I was not going to take another player in his place, as we have to invest in Fontaine," Guardiola told the BBC. I am sure that he is a player who will do great things for the next ten years ".
The flight from Arsenal must be considered a one-way street
As Pierre Emerick Obamayang should leave Arsenal if he does not want his career to go downhill, according to Manuel Petit.
Lately, a lot has been written and heard about the future of Pierre Emerick Obamayang. The Gabonese forward is one of those who have stayed at their height in Arsenal. From those who still do their job well. Correctly.
Friends of the English club drink water in his name. However, the risk of losing him is greater than ever. And that's because he doesn't look very "hot" to refresh. Not only that. The team's management has not yet made him a proposal.
The issue that arises is this. If he does, how good will it be? Will it leave him satisfied? Or will he be wanted in other states? Barcelona has already begun to look into the matter. It is possible that another group will do the same.
Running away from Arsenal should be considered a one-way street for the good of Obamayang's career. This was stated by Manuel Petit in his statements. The Frenchman, who had gone through the "gunners" in the past, gave this advice to the experienced striker.
The season is not over yet. But most teams are looking for players who will support them for the next one. The Arsenal administration wants Obamayang next to her. In words, because from deeds he has not yet shown anything.
In fact, the player himself recently stressed that he is waiting for an official proposal and that he would not want to leave "Emirates". A move that should probably be made immediately, as Manuel Petit, who had passed through the Londoners earlier, stressed.
"If I were Pierre Emerick Obameyang, I would leave Arsenal. Few players can say that they have the quality to make a difference in this team. One of them is Obamayang. For me, he has to leave the team immediately if he wants to win titles. We have to admit, guys. Arsenal are not the same team they used to be, ”the veteran player said.
Barcelona is also involved in the acquisition of Cavani
The Catalans are considering the case of Edison Cavani, as the discussions with Lautaro Martines are very worrying.
There is stagnation in the issue of the transfer of Lautaro Martines. The Argentine is certainly the first target of the "blaugrana" to strengthen the attack, but unfortunately for the team there are no positive developments. This prompts her to consider possible alternatives, with Edison Cavani being the new name on the team's list.
Edison Cavani is a former French champions. His contract expires at the end of the month, but he has made it clear that he will not play in the rest of the team's matches. The team has qualified for the "8" of the Champions League and in the final of the cup. However, she will claim these trophies without the experienced ace in her lineup.
The 33-year-old is already looking for the next stage of his career. Being free and very affordable it makes sense to have a lot of suggestions. It is, after all, one of the largest cannons in Europe. So far, Atletico Madrid and Inter are the ones who have shown the warmest interest.
But now it seems that Barcelona is entering the grip of acquiring it. The Catalans have long been in talks with Inter over the purchase of Lautaro Martines' rights. However, they have not found them with the "nerazzouri" and the attitude of the Italian team shows that it will be difficult to do so. In order for the transfer to take place, the Blaugrana will have to be dismantled and give the player a clause of 111 million. This is not going to happen because of the difficult financial situation.
Therefore, they will have to look at other solutions, at a lower economic cost. Cavani is definitely one such case, in which case Barcelona will not lose in quality. The plus of the player is that he knows and can work with Luis Suarez, as they have done it with great success in the national team of their country. For the time being, however, the interest of the Catalans is at a literary level. But as long as the deal for Lautaro Martinez does not go ahead, then the soon-to-be-former Paris star will earn points.
