Judged "not 100%" by Martinez, Engels was well titled with Aston Villa


Despite a convincing start to the championship, Bjorn Engels did not appear in the list of 28 players selected from the Red Devils to face San Marino and Scotland. After having praised his merits, coach Roberto Martinez had spoken of a Bjorn Engels "not 100% physically ready" and so decided to leave him at home.

It is therefore with astonishment that we found this afternoon the presence of the Belgian defender in the axis of the defense of Aston Villa during the match lost 1-0 by the Villains against Crystal Palace. What to raise some questions about the communication between the coach, the player, the club and the various collaborators. At the same meeting, Christian Benteke climbed in the 86th minute.

Another red Devil summoned by Martinez, Michy Batshuayi went into the game in the 83rd minute when Chelsea conceded 2-2 to promoted Sheffield United. Tammy Abraham had however given a double advantage to the Blues (19th and 43rd) but Robinson (46th) and a goal against his camp of Zouma (89th) forced Chelsea to draw. Both teams have 5 units.

Finally Watford, with Christian Kabasele in central defense, shared 1-1 in Newcastle. This is the first point of the Hornets season after three straight defeats. Newcastle, 4 points, is 14th.
