WHAT HAPPENED? Chelsea's new head coach, Pochettino, gave his thoughts on the recent £60m transfer of Mason Mount to Manchester United. The 51-year-old Argentine is the chosen successor to Graham Potter who saw his stint cut short following some poor results.

WHAT THEY SAID: "When I talk about the future, it's about the players in the squad. He's a Manchester United player now. I don't know what happened in the past, we need to be focused on our players and move and try to build a nice story," said the Argentine in his press conference.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Chelsea will be hoping to bounce back after a dismal season that saw them finish 12th in the Premier League and not get any European football for the next season.
