Referees are again under the interrogation light as severe questioning arose after the fourth week in the Premier League. Manchester United's manager Jose Mourinho was opening the door after claiming that a wrong decision of the official was part of his side debacle during the Manchester Derby last Saturday where Pep Guardiola and Manchester City ended with a 2-1 away victory.
Chelsea's defender Gary Cahill follow the same path criticising the conduction of the game at Swansea. The Blues dropped their first points of the season, and Cahill accused referee Andre Marriner and his officials of not sanctioned a double foul by Leroy Feron in the build-up to the goal that gave Swansea the lead at that point.
Mourinho also appears in today's front pages regretting not to include Marcus Rashford in his starting XI last Saturday.
The papers didn't leave behind the goalkeeper's saga as both Claudio Bravo and Joe Hart committed the same mistake during their debut with Manchester City and Serie A's Torino respectively. Bravos' blunder hurts less than Hart's as Torino lost 2-1 to Atalanta. Antonio Conte is on the Express Sport asking for protection for Diego Costa as Chelsea's manager think his striker "is targeted by defenders." Marcus Rashford also had some space there after Mourinho will include the youngster in the squad for their Europa League trip to Feyenoord.
Three players are featured in Italy's newspaper this Monday as Gonzalo Higuain, Francesco Totti and Mauro Icardi made great performances for their teams.
Higuain is the main story in Tuttosport where they said he is the "scourge of goal", as the Juventus striker lead his side to a 3-1 home victory against Sassuolo with a double.
After AS Roma fans had been asking Francesco Totti to retire from football, the legendary player asked them back if they want he to do it now after he assisted Edin Dzeko and scoring the winner, a penalty during injury time for a spectacular comeback to defeat Sampdoria 3-2 at the Stadio Olimpico.
Mauro Icardi, on the other hand, was the hero scoring a double during the second half to rescue Inter Milan in a 2-1 away win in Pescara. In Spain, Real Madrid are La Liga only leader for the first time in 558 days after their victory 5-2 against Osasuna and Deportivo Alaves defeat FC Barcelona in the Camp Nou 2-1. The Merengues celebrated the success with a barbeque with their families.
Meanwhile, Luis Enrique had a meeting with all the Culés to cheer them up and clear their minds before their debut in this season's Champions League. Barcelona will face Scotish side Celtic this Tuesday and "El Mister" needs that Messi, Suarez and Neymar are in both, mentally and physically top form for the challenge.
