OLE SUPPORTS DE GEA

Despite the fact that David de Gea has been nowhere close to his best in the recent months, Ole seems to be throwing his weight behind his first choice shot stopper who has overall been a great servant for United in his 8-year long stint so far.

De Gea has faltered between the sticks quite a few times in the ongoing season, but none of his mistakes would have hurt the Red Devils as much as the last night’s mistake which he committed in an extremely vital Premiership fixture against Chelsea.

United started that game at no. 6 in the table, but a victory could have seen them climb a position up to no. 5 and getting leveled with the Blues on points who are at no. 4. And United with a lead early in the game seemed to be well on track to get the job done.

Gareth Southgate expects more from Jack Wilshere

England manager Gareth Southgate has decided to exclude midfielder Jack Wilshere from the squad for the upcoming games versus Spain and Switzerland. The 26-year-old was a surprise exclusion from the Three Lions squad for the recent World Cup in Russia and he has since switched his allegiance to West Ham United after his contract expired with Arsenal.

Speaking in a news conference, Southgate was quizzed as to what Wilshere must do to return to the national team setup to which he replied: “Play well. I’ve watched two of his first three games, so the same as every other player. They’ve got to be playing well and the competition is high.”

RODWELL HAS HOPE

Sunderland’s summer signing Jack Rodwell promises a lot of hope since he is expected to get much better than in the last few years due to the regular football he will be getting in the north-east. The former Everton man moved to Sunderland in a £ 10 million deal from Manchester City. This move was seen crucial not only for his club’s prospects but also for his re-entry into the England national team. Once regarded as a great potential, Rodwell has failed to progress in the last few years due to a combination of injuries and intense competition for places at City.

After recently managing to score his first goal for his new club, Rodwell says that he is just starting to get better. He has also sent a warning to the other Premier League teams saying that once he reaches full fitness, he will be back to his best. The midfielder has made eight appearances for the black cats and has scored one goal. A recent dip in form, though, saw him return back to the bench against Stoke, but this lack of action is expected to be only a temporary incident. Sunderland’s inability to get results is likely to see Rodwell return back to the first-team.

“I’m definitely getting there and I should be properly ready by the time the next game comes around. The first few games, you’re just feeling your way in and getting your fitness – I still am. But I am feeling better each game, and, after the international break, hopefully I will be back to 100 per cent. I got to start three games in a week, with the matches against Burnley, Stoke and Swansea. I’m happy with the progress and I know I’m getting there,” said the midfielder, who has three caps for the England national team.
