Shaka Hislop on who is the better team
“I think the issue is, and we are still very early in the transfer window, even with the new signings for Manchester United including Lindelof, I still don’t think this team is as good as Chelsea.
“There is still a lot of question marks about Chelsea, particularly around Diego Costa.
“Is he staying? Is he going? If he does go, which it looks like, who’s his replacement?
“Other than that, let’s freely assume that it’s a like for like replacement for Diego Costa, what we saw from Chelsea last term, I don’t think anyone has done anything in this transfer window to eclipse that.” (ESPN FC)
Gary Neville on Lukaku
“No coach or club should ever have their eggs in one basket. If Madrid, Barca, United, Bayern, City come in then you may always lose him!
“He’s incredibly talented and I’ve seen him destroy defences but personally I’ve never been his biggest fan. However he will score goals.
“He went missing in too many matches I saw, but with a better team + players around him he has an improved chance to deliver in big matches.” (Twitter – @GNev2)
Victor Moses on being spotted as a youngster
”I got noticed playing in that same park. There was a club that was training there, Cosmos 90, and I think their manager must have seen me and he told me I was a good player once. I asked if I could train with his team and he said , “Yeah.”
”So I joined them, but I didn’t know anyone in that team. That was my first time going to train and play with a proper team because normally we were just playing among ourselves, with friends and other people who came around.
”Cosmos were in the Tandridge League, which was a local competition, and that’s how I started. Palace scouted me from there and that’s how I ended up in the game.” ( Chelsea FC)
