Gary Neville sends message to Chelsea about Man United signing

Manchester City's Spanish midfielder David Silva celebrates scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between Newcastle United and Manchester City at St James Park in Newcastle-upon-Tyne north east England

The Serbia global had been deemed surplus to requirements by the Blues after the arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

The transfer has raised eyebrows amongst many fans and pundits alike, given that the Serbian played a key role in helping Chelsea to win the Premier League title next season.

Speaking to Betfair, Le Saux said: "Antonio Conte's comments about the "crazy transfer market" this summer highlight the lack of depth in the Chelsea squad and I don't see them as obvious champions, particularly with the extra challenge of European football and the fact it's hugely hard to defend a Premier League title".

Hackenberg completed 18 of 25 passes for 127 yards in the 7-3 win over the Tennessee Titans , his only turnover a botched snap. Instead of breaking down the game, let's focus on the individual players or units that stood out, for better or worse.

Lampard is among those questioning the decision to let the midfielder join a direct rival.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League last season, while Chelsea were crowned Champions in Conte's first campaign in charge.

And the Blues legend thinks Matic's desire to leave Stamford Bridge could have influenced their thinking.

He transferred to Louisville once it was announced that UAB's football program would be shutting down. He played two seasons with UAB, recording 40 receptions for 648 yards and five touchdowns.

Matic has impressed in his two appearances for United since moving to Old Trafford and Lampard's admitted he's surprised the deal was allowed to go through.

"You get the feeling that Chelsea didn't really want Matic to go, but players can push for a move at times and that is why this deal feels different compared to Petr Cech's move from Chelsea to Arsenal a couple of years back".

"There are a lot of variables that aren't easy but from the outside, it does seem unusual to let that player go to a direct rival - and he will improve them".
