Paul Scholes questions Chelsea's decision of selling Matic to Man United

Nemanja Matic

GETTYPaul Scholes surprised by Chelsea's decision to sell Nemanja Matic

"In the last two or three seasons they've been defensively okay but not scoring enough goals has hurt United and I think there are goals in the side now".

Nemanja Matic is clearly an upgrade for Manchester United in an area that was a problem for them, especially with Michael Carrick getting older.

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".

Hunter fells rogue elephant that killed 15 people in India
Attacks by wild elephants are common in India , and government reports say more than 300 people are killed each year by them. Roughly 200 forest officials and villagers assisted in the hunt, but only Khan was allowed to shoot the elephant.

"There's responsibility on Bakayoko not just to bring the talents that he has - and he has many - but also the discipline to fit into the system".

Another former United forward, Wayne Rooney, will make his first Premier League start since rejoining boyhood club Everton when they host Stoke City at Goodison Park on Saturday.

"Chelsea are weaker than last season - no Diego Costa, no Matic - and I'm concerned for them". We hope it is a good year for him and the team. It's a very tough league and he'll have to stand up to that.

Yesterday, the president said the regime would be met with "fire and fury" if it continues to threaten the US. I know that President Obama said global warming is the biggest threat.

Costa's rollercoaster Chelsea career is ending in acrimonious fashion, but Lampard thinks now is the right time for player and club to part ways. "But they are very experienced and they also had some chances to score another because at the end we tried to go with everything to score and they had some counter-attacks". "It's gone beyond now and it's time [for him] to go".

'I think I had the benefit of realising how good he is when he's playing just in front of you - on and off the ball. He's a very select player who's a top, top striker, but when the position goes so far it's hard to put it back.

He added: "I think we played everything so we don't lose this game".

Korean shares open lower amid escalating tensions over N. Korea

The Manchester United and Chelsea target has been linked to a move away after fellow full-back Kyle Walker moved to the Etihad for over £50 million. "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much". We want to be competitive and we want to fight for the title again. I don't know exactly when but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere. Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League past year.
