Just two weeks into the Premier League season, it is fascinating to see how differently some of the Premier League's elite managers are building their teams. At Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp has bought attacking players, who are a series of interchangeable parts, to construct a forward line of bewildering movement. At Chelsea, Antonio Conte has acquired N'Golo Kante, perhaps the only midfielder who can match the intensity that the Italian manager brings to the touchline.

Stoke City assistant manager Mark Bowen has confirmed the Potters are interested in signing Manchester United defender Phil Jones.
Jones has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford following the arrival of Eric Bailly and has failed to even make the bench for the opening two matches of the season. Reports also emerged that the 24-year-old has been told by Jose Mourinho that he has no future with the Red Devils.
Stoke look poised to offer Jones a quick escape route, with Bowen claiming the club are keen to get Jones’ career back on the right track.
â€œI remember Sam Allardyce talking about him when he broke through and said he was the new Duncan Edwards,â€� Bowen told the Stoke Sentinel.
â€œHe did well as a youngster, got the big move, but it hasnâ€™t worked out for him there. I donâ€™t know how close we are or how far down the line itâ€™s gone.
â€œHeâ€™s played the majority of his career at centre half, but in his younger days he went into midfield as well.
â€œI donâ€™t know whatâ€™s gone wrong, but heâ€™s gone from even a player Fergie [Alex Ferguson] was talking about as being someone who could have been one of the greats.
â€œBut we have a bit of reputation for bringing players like that into this set up and then thriving. Fingers crossed, something may happen.â€�

MLS clubs would be willing to offer Man Utd captain Wayne Rooney â€œbig-dollar numbersâ€�, according to Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson.
Rooneyâ€™s form has been the subject of much scrutiny over the last two seasons, and he can no longer take his place for granted in either the Manchester United or England teams.
Reports last week suggested United are in no rush to offer the 30-year-old a new deal, wanting the forward to earn a potential increase on his Â£300,000-a-week wages with the quality of his performances.
And Paulson told the Daily Mirror: â€œI would argue he still has some good soccer ahead of him. I think he would be a great signing for MLS â€” 100 percent MLS would be attractive for him.
â€œKeeping in mind that is a very talented footballer, who has quality soccer ahead of him, you are not talking about a 34 or 35 year old.
â€œI get excited about the impact he would have in the MLS more than a guy who is coming in later in his career. The MLS is offering significant money. There were conversations with some guys who are as big a name as Rooney recently.
â€œOrlando City had some high profile discussions with some players â€” guys in his age range. There are some big-dollar numbers that have been put out.â€�
Rooneyâ€™s former England team-mates Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole have all moved to the MLS in recent season.
In February the England captain was linked with a mega-money move to the Chinese Super League, but Paulson expects the US to be a bigger attraction.
â€œChina is a factor, but also players need to determine where they want to play and what is going to be best for their legacy and lifestyle â€“ where they want to live,â€� he added.
â€œI think America compares really favourably â€” I wouldnâ€™t want to play soccer in Beijing right now. I am not saying that because I donâ€™t like China but the air quality issue is something they have to deal with in a sport which requires fitness.
â€œPlayers need to make their own choices but I think about other leagues being competitors for talent more than I do the Chinese league, where certainly there is a lot of money being splashed around.â€�

Reading boss Jaap Stam has turned to former club Manchester United to sign defender Tyler Blackett on a permanent deal.
The 22-year-old attended the Royals’ 2-2 Sky Bet Championship draw with Brighton on Saturday before agreeing terms on a three-year contract for a fee believed to be around Â£1million.
Stam said on Reading’s official website: “As we know, Tyler is a talented defender who has played for United’s first team.
“He can play as a left-back or a left-sided centre-back; he has got great potential in the sense that he is quick and athletic, defensively he is strong and he is good at set-pieces.
“As a defender he can go and play high up the pitch as well, and that is what we need in the squad.”
— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) August 22, 2016
Blackett made 12 appearances for United’s first team, making his debut in 2014, and also had loan spells with Blackpool, Birmingham and most recently Celtic last season.
He has also featured nine times for England at youth level, most recently for the under-21s in 2014.
The signing is Reading’s third of the summer following the arrivals of John Swift and Liam Moore.
Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson says Wayne Rooney would be a "great signing" for the MLS.Manchester United – teamtalk.com 23 Aug 08:57
Santos and Brazil forward Gabriel Barbosa is ready to think about a move to Chelsea or Man United following the conclusion of the Olympics.
The 19-year-old helped Brazil win the Olympic football tournament for the first time in their history and will head back to his league club Santos to hold talks with his representatives.
Barbosa told reporters: “Up until now, I havenâ€™t really had the time to think about anything because my attention was completely on the Olympics.
“Now I will celebrate with my family, then I will return to Santos and think about what I should do.”
Barbosa’s agent has previously dismissed Manchester United’s interest as nothing but “pure speculation”, but Santos president Modesto Roma has also revealed that he has spoken to the Red Devils, as well as two other clubs.
“We had productive conversations,” Roma said.
“We didn’t come to buy or sell players, neither in London or Madrid. We came to build up relationships.
“There weren’t offers, but we did talk about partnerships. I talked to Manchester United, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.”
