Box (5.07) with 5/6 points by Guru L

Following the defeats to Girona and Tottenham Hotspur, Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid recorded a much needed victory over Las Palmas with the French coach satisfied that Cristiano Ronaldo's poor goalscoring run will soon end.

The Portuguese forward was unfortunate not to be on the scoresheet at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu but did manage to provide the assist to Isco's goal.

"Now Cristiano is getting assists, his bad run will end," Zidane explained in his post-match press conference.

"Isco's goal came from a Ronaldo cross. Both Ronaldo and Benzema have been doing the right things on the pitch."

It was the respective performances of both Marco Asensio and Isco that made the difference at the Bernabeu and the French coach was delighted that Asensio rediscovered his goalscoring touch.

"I'm happy for Asensio's goal," he confirmed. "It was fantastic and important for the three points.

"I leave with the feeling that we had a good game, it was important to win after two defeats."

After two significant defeats, it would have been easy for doubts to creep into the Real Madrid dressing room, however the former Castilla coach has been calling for calm and he echoed such sentiments once again.

"We are calm, but it is important to win," admitted Zidane.

"We knew that we would have to play really well.

"Now we have to think about the next match."

Jesus Vallejo started in place of Raphael Varane having not yet played a single minute of LaLiga football all season which was certainly a gamble to thrust the 20-year-old into such a difficult situation.

"Vallejo did very well," the coach insisted.

"I'm very happy for him, but I'm happy with everyone's performance."

Asensio: Real Madrid don't take notice of who scores the goals

Following a pretty great start to the 2017/18 season, it was always going to be difficult for Marco Asensio to maintain his form and, after a dip in production recently, the Spaniard was back to his best on Sunday.

After Casemiro's header put the hosts in front, it was the former Real Mallorca midfielder who would secure the three points with a well taken goal.

"We are a team, we don't take notice of who scores the goals," he explained in his post-match interview.

"We don't look at who gives assists either, we are all moving in the same direction."

One of the trademarks of Asensio's game has become long-range strikes, his effort against Las Palmas following suit with the Spaniard delighted by another spectacular shot.

"It was another good goal, he admitted." I was able to hit the ball well.

"I was there at the rebound and was able to get the ball in, it was a great goal."

Many supporters were left wondering whether or not Zinedine Zidane's trust in some players would waver following recent defeats, however Asensio never expected the Frenchman to change too many players.

"The coach trusts every single player in this team," he confirmed. "You can't always be a starter, you just have to keep working.

"With more games like today, things will go well."

Benzema again subject to the Bernabeu's whistles

After yet another frustrating display by Karim Benzema, the French striker was whistled by home supporters at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

The jeering took place when the former Lyon forward was substituted as he had missed an opportunity to put Real Madrid ahead after just three minutes when he released a low shot straight at the visiting goalkeeper.

Later in the first half he was again in the spotlight for a missed chance, Marco Asensio's perfect delivery into the penalty area looked set to meet the Frenchman's head yet he failed to make a connection.

For all the criticism Benzema has received, the 29-year-old kept trying and refused to let the reaction of the home fans get to him.

Casemiro's opening goal settled the nerves around the stadium but it didn't save Benzema from being targeted after two clear misses.

Conte insists Luiz omission in United win was tactical

Antonio Conte said he left David Luiz out of the Chelsea side that won 1-0 against Manchester United on Sunday for tactical reasons.

The Brazil international did not even make the bench as Andreas Christensen was handed a start, with rumors of a rift with Conte being the reason for his omission circulating around social media.

However, Conte insisted that the decision to go with Christensen was purely tactical, playing down suggestions of a breakdown in the couple's relationship.

"It's simple," Conte said. "The coach has to make the best decision for the team, and tonight it was to play for Christensen and have (Ethan) Ampadu on the bench, good players for the present and future.

"I decided this tonight, maybe I can decide a different way in the future. It's normal. I have to make the best decision for the club, not for a single player. It was only a tactical decision. It's normal and this can happen. to every one of my players.

"Christensen played an amazing game."

Chelsea, beaten 3-0 by Roma in their midweek Champions League fixture, produced an impressive performance against United on Sunday.

Alvaro Morata's header was enough to secure a third straight league win that kept them only a point behind second-placed United and London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

United pressed for an equalizer but the way champions Chelsea dug in to secure the three points impressed Conte.

"We must be pleased," Conte added. "We played with great energy, passion and enthusiasm. There was a lot of positive things. The desire from my players, the fight and will help each other.

"When we play in this way it's great. Last season we won the title and showed fantastic spirit in every game. This season, for many reasons, we started with a lot of problems. When you have problems you have to pay attention because things can go down.

"To win against Manchester United gives you confidence."

Guardiola: City could have put five or six past Arsenal

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said he was 'very happy' following his tragedy 3-1 win against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

City's remarkable run of nine straight wins in the Premier League, which cemented their place at the top of the table, has even surprised the former Barcelona boss.

"Another victory, three points and 12 ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal, it's a big difference," he told officials.

"It was a good performance, we are very happy, we can be more solid in the sense that against great teams like Arsenal you have to score so we have room to improve this.

"In the dressing room we said before the game that we could be more physically tired than they were, but mentally we couldn't be worse.

"I don't know if I've started so well in my career before, we've scored a lot and the best thing is that today we could have scored five or six, we have to be more clinical in the last pass."

Guardiola then expressed concern that his players might return injured from international duty.

"I hope that the players return without injuries," he said.

"We have told them that they are friendly matches and they will be smart."

Urging caution against getting carried away with the spectacular early season form, the City boss noted his side's upturn against title rivals.

"What I know is that if we are not ourselves, anyone can beat us, it happens here and in all sports, and it's up to us to give this opportunity to the rivals," he said.

"Last season we only won twice against the title candidates.

"If you want to win the Premier League, you have to win these games, last season our big problem was November, we didn't win three games at home and what came next was a consequence of that."

Arsenal's standout performer was City transfer target Alexis Sanchez, who Guardiola worked with at Barcelona and the Spaniard was full of praise for his former player.

"He is a top player, he has a very high level, and all the problems we had in the first half were created by him," said Guardiola.

Pochettino urges England boss to be cautious with Kane

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino urged caution with striker Harry Kane during the international break after his side signed off by scraping a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace On Sunday.

Kane needed treatment on his ankle and was eventually substituted after the interval in his side's win at Wembley which moved Tottenham level on points with second-placed Manchester United in the Premier League.

While Kane did not appear to have a serious problem but Pochettino, who was without injured midfielder Dele Alli, French keeper Hugo Lloris and Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld, appeared worried by the demands on the England hitman.

Alli was pulled out of England's squad for the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil while midfielder Harry Winks is also a doubt after turning his ankle against Palace and being substituted at halftime.

With a north London derby against Arsenal looming, Pochettino said he hoped England manager Gareth Southgate would go easy on Tottenham's leading striker.

"It's a difficult situation for everyone," Pochettino told reporters. "For us, we are focusing on our problems and our injuries but I also fully understand what the national team wants and needs.

"The most important thing is that the national teams, including England, understand the needs of our players and help them so they will be fit when they return here," he added.

"All you can do is have good communication and explain the situation to everyone and then trust them. I subbed (Kane) to protect him after Real Madrid last Wednesday. It was such an emotional game and it is better to avoid a risk."

Kane returned for the 3-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid having missed last weekend's defeat at Manchester United with a hamstring strain.

Winks looks unlikely to join up with the national squad.

"He twisted his ankle and, at the moment, it's extremely painful," Pochettino said. "We must assess him with our medical staff and that of the national team.

"He is so excited to make the national team and I am sure he wants to make it. But it is up to the medical people."

Tottenham were not at their best but maintained three valuable points thanks to Son Heung-min's 64th minute curler.

Pochettino said the victory had been 'massive'.

"We can talk about different things but after a few difficult circumstances the answer was fantastic from the squad," Pochettino said. "That pleased me the most."

"When you play a game like Real Madrid there is always danger, you have to be focused and the performance was so professional from the team."

Defeat left Palace with four points from 11 games but they were impressed against Tottenham and created the game's best chances.

"I would have settled for playing much worse and having a bit of good fortune where a ball deflects past the goalkeeper, or the referee awards us a penalty which is not a penalty," manager Roy Hodgson said.
