Manchester United were shocked 4-0 by MK Dons in League Cup action tonight.

On the night that the red half of Manchester was celebrating the arrival of Angel di Maria a mixed team of senior and relative youngsters were thrashed 4-0 by MK Dons. The starting team did contain Johnny Evans, Danny Welbeck, and Adnan Januzaj so the loss can't be completely dismissed as the result of young players. Di Maria or not Louis Van Gaal has his work cut out for him getting the club back to their former glory.

Bournemouth is already making their hopes to sign Jack Wilshere to a permanent deal known at the end of his season-long loan.

Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn said he wouldn't rule anything out at the end of the season after the former Arsenal prodigy arrived on Deadline Day. He has gone on to play in five of the club's Premier League matches to start the season. "The best we can do is integrate Jack into the team and help him fulfill what he wants. Whether or not we will go beyond a season, I think everything is possible. You have to be realistic and Jack may well consider his home to be back at Arsenal...But if there is a possibility and Eddie Howe decides that he's somebody he wants to keep it will be up to him."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that defender Vincent Kompany has not suffered a massive injury setback.

The Manchester City captain sustained a groin injury in the late stages of the club's win against Swansea City, minutes after he asked to stay on instead of being subbed off. But the club expects Kompany to return for the next Champions League match with Barcelona after the international break. "They are injured, unfortunately they are not here but we are going to do our best to recover them as soon as possible," manager Pep Guardiola said. "It's not a big, big injury, so I think in a short time -- two, three, three-and-a-half weeks -- both will be ready to be with us."

The Theo Walcott redemption tour continued with a first half brace against Basel in the Champions League group stage.

Arsenal scored twice in the first half through Theo Walcott and then cruised to a 2-0 victory at the Emirates. With PSG also winning the result put the two clubs even atop Group A with four points and a two goal differential each. The only significant changes Arsene Wenger made was continuing with Granit Xhaka due to the injury to Francis Coquelin and bringing in David Ospina as has been his habit in the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger has indicated that Aaron Ramsey will definitely miss out on matches with Burnley and Basel before the international break.

Ramsey's hamstring injury suffered in Week 1 against Liverpool has lingered longer than expected and the Arsenal manager has indicated that the player won't make it back before the international break. With an extra week to recover, Ramsey should be available when the Gunners return to action against Swansea at the Emirates on October 15th. Given the strength and health of the current squad expect Arsene Wenger to be conservative in bringing Ramsey back from his injury.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has signalled his intention to play Zlatan Ibrahimovic twice this week.

The Swede will start Thursday's must-win Europa League clash with Zorya Luhansk as well as the Stoke game in Gameweek 7. Even though Zlatan is turning 35 on Monday, Mourinho believes that his body is able for the intensity since he will not be playing during the international break immediately after. Some FPL managers will fear that fatigue will affect the big man in this weekend's game - they had better hope the Red Devils are out of sight quickly tomorrow night so that their precious Zlatan is ready to inflic more misery on the Potters.

Harry Kane, who was thought to be out of action for about two months because of ligament damage in his ankle, is thought to be able to fully recover in a matter of six weeks.

A six week absence for a player like Kane is still a tough blow for Spurs to navigate around, but a shortened timetable will certainly lift spirits for the club, especially considering that gives him a target to return in time for the derby match against Arsenal in early November. Tottenham have been hit with the injury bug in recent times but showed they have adequate depth by grinding out a Champions League win last night against CSKA Moscow, despite missing Kane along with Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier. Another tough test comes at the weekend when they attempt to snap Manchester City's perfect record.

Sam Allardyce is no longer England manager after the FA mutually agreed to terminate his contract just 67 days into his "dream job."

Following a sting by London based broadsheet newspaper The Daily Telegraph, Allardyce had to go following an investigation which raised concerns that "the guardians of [our] game" had fallen below the standards expected. Allardyce was caught on camera discussing ‘third-party ownership’ and specifically offering advice on how to circumvent the rules governing transfers. Following yesterdays’ meeting at Wembley Stadium, the FA released a statement confirming he would leave by "mutual consent" in order to protect the "wider interests of the game." Allardyce admits he made a "terrible error of judgement" and that his behaviour was silly. "Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that," he said. Gareth Southgate will now take charge of the next four international matches with the Football Association branded a ‘laughing stock’ by former England and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer.

Mike Phelan is not ruling out a defensive future for Jake Livermore who has made the successful transition from midfield maestro to ball-playing centre-back following a number of injuries at the start of the new campaign.

Livermore stepped in for the season opener against champions Leicester City and he hasn’t looked back since. Losing Michael Dawson and Harry Maguire [both ankle] in pre-season, and with limited options in a threadbare Tigers squad, Livermore slotted into the back-four to partner Curtis Davies and the 26-year-old has started every Premier League game even though Maguire is now fit. "I've never really had the conversation with Jake as to where he sees his future, whether that's in midfield or the position he's in at the moment," said Phelan. "He's taken to it really, really well. When we look at the games and we analyse, he's very comfortable there. He's added a certain amount of calmness to proceedings."

Jose Mourinho has revealed a few players who will not be able (by choice and necessity) to play in the Europa League against Zorya Luhansk this Thursday.

Luke Shaw was deemed unwell by the Man Utd club doctor and sent home from training today, this does not appear to be a serious setback for the young Englishman. Having confirmed that Wayne Rooney would play against Zorya earlier in the week, Mourinho has cast doubt on this as he has a back issue, which prevented him training yesterday. Mkhitaryan will not be in action in spite of training in the last few days. Anthony Martial has recovered from the calf injury which meant he didn't even make the squad for last weekend's Leicester victory.

AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn has stated that the club are open to making Jack Wilshere's loan at the club permanent.

Wilshere joined the Cherries from Arsenal on loan in a bid to get his career back on track after consistent set backs in recent years. He was no longer guaranteed game time so joined Eddie Howe's outfit to build fitness, confidence and form back. Wilshere has so far made three appearances for the club, showing some glimpses of his class in the process. However, he has not done enough to prevent the club's poor start to the season which finds them languishing in 15th position in the table. He hit the crossbar in last weekend's 1-0 win over Everton after a Coleman block stopped him scoring his first Bournemouth goal. He is yet to play 90 minutes for the club.

Harry Arter put in a fantastic shift which has earned him plaudits from across the board in Bournemouth's unexpected victory over Everton last weekend.

Arter was both an attacking presence and a key part of Bournemouth's isolation of Everton's dangerous front four of Barkley, Mirallas, Bolasie and Lukaku. He was superior to Barkley in midfield, winning 10 duels compared to the Englishman's two. At the other end, he made the assist for Stanislas' goal and created a further chance. He also took four shots, some of which looked dangerous but were off target. One came from inside the box. Howe lauded him after the game for his tireless performance, praising him for "covering every blade of grass". He was positioned as a CM just off Wilshere as CAM. Surman player behind him to shore up the defence.
