Ledley King's Talking Points

Mourinho is running out of time at Man United as pressure mounts following his sides 3-1 defeat to West Ham. United have now lost three of their opening seven games and sit in 10th place, their worst start to a season since 1989. Relationships appear to be breaking down at the club, and a managerial change could be on the horizon.

Mike Ashley attended his first home game at Newcastle since May last year, and was welcomed with boos and chants of 'we want Ashely out' as his side were beaten by Leicester. Newcastle are without a win in their opening 7 games, and face a tough trip to Old Trafford next.

Sturridge's sensational late equaliser against Chelsea is a sign that the striker is reborn. He has had a turbulent few seasons struck with injury, but the strike at Stamford Bridge suggests he's getting his form back and could play a key role, at least as a super sub, in Liverpool's PL title challenge.

Wolves are unbeaten in five PL games after their 2-0 win against Southampton on Saturday. “Nuno’s the Special One,” echoed around Molineux as the Portuguese manager sent a message to the rest of the PL. Wolves are going to be tough to beat at home this season.

West Brom go top of the Championship with a 3-2 win over bottom club Preston. "I really do feel there is more to come and together, collectively as a group, a unit and a football club we have to keep working," said boss Darren Moore.

Ipswich were 2-0 up against Birmingham and looked to be heading towards their first league victory of the campaign, but two second-half goals from Nolan and Pennington meant the spoils were shared at Portman Road. The Tractor Boys are now 12 games without a win, in a run that stretches back to last season.

Portsmouth moved back to the top of the League One table after coming back from a goal behind to beat Rochdale 3-1. It means Pompey remain unbeaten and are now a point ahead of Peterborough, who could only manage a 2-2 draw against Blackpool.
