Tomorrow, Burnley will face Arsenal at the Emirates. Their manager is Vincent Kompany, who was previously the captain of Manchester City. Interestingly, Mikel Arteta, who was once Pep Guardiola’s assistant, coached Kompany during his time at City. It might be a bit confusing to wrap your head around, but according to Arteta, Kompany had a natural coaching ability even while he was still playing. So it’s no surprise to Arteta that Kompany has now transitioned into a managerial role.
He possessed strong leadership skills and was highly adept at handling various situations, including interactions with others and managing dressing rooms.
“He grasped the game, was fluent in multiple languages and it was evident from the start that he would excel as a coach. It is clear that he has had a successful career, particularly with his methods and achievements.”
“In the Premier League, we all face challenges and have our ups and downs. I am ecstatic to see him succeeding in his endeavors.”
Bukayo Saka was absent from training today and will undergo a last-minute assessment of his fitness before tomorrow’s match. Despite David Raya overtaking him as the top goalkeeper in recent weeks, Arteta still considers Aaron Ramsdale to have a crucial role in his squad.
Arteta had a positive outlook on Kai Havertz.
I am extremely satisfied with his performance.
Examining the individual figures of his goal production, there is room for improvement. However, in various other aspects of the game, his contributions to the team are crucial at the moment.
According to the Premier League’s Key Match Incidents panel, Arteta commented on Anthony Gordon’s goal in their 1-0 loss last weekend, stating that it was considered a valid goal.
After the match, we received numerous reactions. Now, let’s focus on discussing Burnley.
I found this amusing.
The manager of Arsenal commented on the depth of his squad, noting that there are certain positions or units where they may be lacking a bit.
During this event in 2017, while being observed by Daniel Taylor.
Do Chelsea and Manchester City supporters have any noteworthy recollections (positive or negative) of this match? How is this specific event perceived in the context of the present Premier League? Please send me your opinions via email.
According to Gareth Southgate, Reece James is opting out of playing for England and potentially jeopardizing his spot in the 2024 Euro team, Pochettino stated.
The player does not make the decisions. The decisions are always made by the medical staff, sports science team, and coaching staff, not the player.
Reece is eager to join the national team, and I believe it would benefit both the national team and Chelsea. However, the decision is not up to him; he simply has a strong desire to go.
There are no recent updates on the injuries of Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Christopher Nkunku as they continue to recover from their time off the field.
Gareth Southgate and England are still not completely satisfied at this point.
Guardiola further stated that Sterling is performing exceptionally well and seems to be back in top form, based on his recent performances.
He also mentioned Chelsea.
Their performance is improving with the addition of a new club and new players. It is only a matter of time before they become a top competitor, as they possess quality in all areas of the team.
If we cease our actions or our adversaries surpass us, we will not succeed. Past achievements do not guarantee future success, and there will always be challenges. Recognizing this brings us closer to maintaining a strong presence in Europe for an extended period of time.
He provided an update on John Stones’ injury, retracting his previous statement that the flexible defender would be out for an undetermined amount of time due to a muscle injury. Today, he stated that the doctor informed him it is not as severe. Manuel Akanji, who was injured during the warm-up against Young Boys on Tuesday, trained today and performed well.
Kevin De Bruyne is still out for the long term, but Guardiola noted signs of progress.
I had a conversation with him 48 hours ago and he is in good spirits. However, he is not participating in our training sessions and is not doing much running. Injuries like his require caution and avoiding putting too much strain on his body. Once he is fully recovered and the doctors give clearance, we can proceed to the next stage. It’s important to not rush and risk setbacks. Kevin’s injury was severe and required surgery, so we must take things gradually.”
I am signing off now, so good afternoon to everyone. And a warm welcome to Morgan Ofori, who will be taking over from here.
A transaction within the following two weeks.
The wealthy individual from Britain plans to invest approximately £1.25bn in purchasing a 25% stake in the team and taking charge of their football operations. The deal is expected to be completed before United’s match against Everton at Goodison Park on November 26th. While sources stated that a deal may not be reached next week, it is considered feasible for the following week.

Díaz’s mother was also taken, but was released a few hours later. After a lengthy period of waiting and negotiations with the guerilla group National Liberation Army, Díaz’s father was finally freed yesterday.
He sustained an ankle injury while playing for his team against Chelsea on Monday and will not join the England squad for their upcoming Euro qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia. He will stay in London to receive treatment from his team’s physiotherapists. Despite his absence, England has already secured a spot in the 2024 Germany tournament.
