Several players wasted an excellent chance to show they are worthy of a place in Zinedine Zidane's starting eleven. An unusually high number of sidelined players forced the manager to play some of his second choices, but none of them delivered as expected.
Jurgen Norbert Klopp is the manager on everyone's lips. But if trends end, legends are there forever. And that is what the German is looking to do at Old Trafford, a cursed stadium where he could get the record number of wins in the Premier League.
If there is someone who has earned a place in Barcelona's starting eleven, it's Frenkie De Jong. The Dutchman was one of the best in Ipurua and showed that he is someone Valverde can count on for his midfield.
The irregular start to Barcelona's season had a lot of people worried. However, in the same fashion as last year, the team seems to have gone back to winning ways and is starting to look comfortable on the pitch again.
