Furlong first became aware of Diangana's talent while he was at QPR with the defender taking on Diangana and his parent club West Ham in a pre-season friendly.

And he admits Diangana was a player who immediately caught his eye.

Not really," Furlong said to the Express & Star when asked if Diangana's form had surprised him this season.

There was a game at QPR in pre-season where we played West Ham, he played second half I played first half. I remember watching him in that second half thinking, 'wow this kid's sharp and really effective'.

That was all I really knew about him. But since he's come in he's been on fire, he's a real problem for full-backs.

He's really hard to deal with even in training.

I get to watch him every day and analyse him but for someone coming up against him on a single day it must be tough."

<![CDATA[Man Utd legend Keane slams West Ham midfielder Rice: Where do I start?]]> <p>Manchester United legend Roy Keane has given a damning of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.</p><p>Keane worked with Rice in the Republic of Ireland national team set-up.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/man-utd-legend-keane-slams-west-ham-midfielder-rice-where-do-i-start-4304692?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BWest%2BHam%2BUnited'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Manchester United legend Roy Keane has given a damning of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

Keane worked with Rice in the Republic of Ireland national team set-up.

"Where he needs to improve there's plenty of aspects" Keane responded. "When you think about him over the past few months he's had a lot of praise."

"I've looked at him pretty closely, worked with him when he was with the Irish squad, but where he needs to improve where do you want me to start?

"His positional play. I don't think he's been consistent enough. He doesn't stay with runners. He's sloppy in possession I can go on.

"He's one of these who I think a couple of months ago everyone was enjoying him and loved him but I think he's one of these players who's almost played his way out of this team because he's not been consistent at West Ham."

The Mirror says United have reportedly drawn up a shortlist of eight long-term targets, including Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and Red Bull Salzburg goal machine Erling Haaland.

England trio James Maddison (Leicester City), Declan Rice (West Ham) and Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) are all on their radar, as is Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

United also remain interested in Aston Villa pair Jack Grealish and John McGinn as they bid to bring in young talent.

Solskjaer is likely to be given funds to strengthen his squad in January and could make his move if the top targets become available.

I wasn't really sure what I was going to do after playing, but I'm just happy it's panned out the way it did.

"I don't always like to plan things too far ahead, because plans don't always go to plan, but I'm really enjoying everything at the minute, so it feels like it was meant to be."

Diangana is on a season-long loan at the Hawthorns.

He told whufc.com: I definitely want to make it at West Ham, long term. I saw an interview Pellegrini did and he said he'd like me to get 40 games under my belt with West Brom and he's happy with the way I've been performing, so I'm happy here and I want to keep playing football.

"For me personally, I realised there was a lot of competition in the West Ham team, a lot of big players. I'm at the stage of my career where I just want to play games and show the world what I can do. For me to improve as well, I need to be playing so I really wanted to just play football."

The Irons are out of the tournament after defeat to Exeter City.

It was a really tough one for us, a really tough game," Halajko told whufc.com.

We struggled to get going, while they dominated the game in most areas and deserved the win.

Result-wise and performance-wise it wasn't great for us, but we did have, hopefully, some great learning opportunities. We had around five players play at this level for the first time, players who have never featured in this competition before, so we should get a lot of development from it, and a lot of lessons to go and improve with."

Reid has been sidelined by a knee injury since March last year, but is poised to pull on his boots once again in Dublin on Thursday evening as he captains New Zealand in their friendly clash with the Republic of Ireland.

He stated, "It's been a long time - I think my wife wants to kill me at this point.

"I've been fortunate enough throughout my career not to have too many serious injuries. Unfortunately I caught one 18 months ago.

"Hopefully I've crossed that bridge now and I'm just looking forward to regaining full fitness. It's taken a long time, hopefully we're there.

"It's been a while since we've been in camp together. Probably the last time I've been involved was Peru a couple of years ago.

"Look, we're here together, we've enjoyed it so far. We've trained well and we're just looking forward to the game tomorrow."

Five of the last six goals conceded by West Ham have been from corners or free-kicks, with Roberto in particular at fault.

It's pretty obvious he's not very good!" Parkes told Claret and Hugh

In fact I remarked to a mate when I watched him in the Oxford United game that he may have a clause in his contract which ensures he doesn't have to dive for the ball!

These are worrying times and things need to change the goalkeeping situation has to be addressed right away.

I don't like him at all and to be honest he doesn't even look like a goalkeeper to me.

"He looks like an outfield player who has somehow found his way between the sticks.

We might have got away with him over a couple of games but the idea of him being in there until January is a serious worry and it's hardly any wonder the team is suffering a crisis of confidence."

The Telegraph says the north Londoners have the chance to bounce back when they return to action following the current international break, with a tricky trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham in the early kick-off on Saturday, November 23.

And the derby could be make or break for Tottenham's season - with a defeat sure to raise serious questions over Pochettino's future.

The manager penned a new five-year contract in May and it is claimed that it would cost chairman Daniel Levy around 12.5million to sack him.

Pochettino previously said he would like to see out the remaining three years of his contract, but hinted last weekend that he might not be given that much time as the pressure increases.

"You expect better results than you get. Of course we are in a process to build and we'll see if we have time to build what we want," he said.

Sheffield United held Tottenham away to move up to 5th, the ever enjoyable Leicester beat Arsenal to move into 2nd spot, and the piece de resistance, Manchester City vs Liverpool, threw up a cracking match with the reds moving 8 points clear at the top of the table.

Fueled with great goals, controversy and excellent individual displays, We here at tribalfootball look at the top performers from Matchday 12 in the Tribal Football Team Of The Week.



GOALKEEPER - BEN FOSTER (Watford)

The Watford glovemen was back at it again between the sticks, providing a series of top stops taking his team along way towards a crucial 3 points at Carrow Road.

In total, Foster made 5 saves, showing superb reflexes and technique to make it in the side for back to back weeks.



CENTRE-BACK - DEJAN LOVREN (Liverpool)

With question marks again over the Croatian's defensive abilities after the impressive start of Joel Matip, many pointed to Lovren as a potential hole in Liverpool's armour for Manchester City to exploit.

However Lovren was rock solid in defence alongside Van Dijk, keeping Man City relatively impotent in front of goal despite their possession stats. Lovren in total made 5 clearances, 2 impressive blocks and won 2 aerial duels.



CENTRE-BACK - CHRIS BASHAM (Sheffield United)

In a crucial game for Sheffield United against a struggling Tottenham outfit, Chris Basham stood tall in the typically robust Blades defence.

Keeping Harry Kane to no shots on target, Basham made 6 clearances and 2 tackles in the Blades important point that sees them rise to 5th place.



CENTRE-BACK - CIARAN CLARK (Newcastle)

It's been an eventful few weeks for the Irish defender, who in the space of a couple of games has found himself out of favour to leading the club's goalscoring charts.

The defender was solid as always in the Newcastle back three and had to step up when skipper Jamaal Lascelles came off injured.

Keeping Wilson and King to zero shots on target, Clark won 4 aerial duels, made 6 clearances and was alert enough to feather a shot goalwards to put the magpies in the lead.



RIGHT-WING-BACK - DEANDRE YEDLIN (Newcastle)

The American speedster was blitzing up and down the ground in a blistering performance in Newcastle's gutsy 2-1 win at St James Park.

Yedlin with his elite speed and endurance was strong in both aspects of the game always providing support for Almiron in attack and tracking back to help out in defence.

His headline moment came in the 42nd minute when he threw himself at a Saint-Maximin cross to head the Toon back to 1-1.



LEFT-WING-BACK - CHRISTIAN PULISIC (Chelsea)

The in-form American has been propelled into a run of goals, spurred on from the confidence from his hat trick against Burnley.

In an attack stunted by a stern Crystal Palace defence, Pulisic seemed the most likely with his tricky dribbling in and around the box.

His eye for goal again was on show when he followed up with a header to seal the game, making it 5 goals in 3 games for Pulisic who has rocketed to the top of the PL form charts.



CENTRE-MIDFIELD - FABINHO (Liverpool)

In Liverpool's colossal win over title-holders Man City, the Brazilian produced a commanding performance in the heart of the Red's midfield.

Producing a typically solid performance with assets in attack and defence, Fabinho lit up the game with one of the goals of the season when he smashed the ball true from 30 yards, sending the Kop into hysteria.



LEFT-MIDFIELD - JAMES MADDISON (Leicester)

The electric midfielder continues to shine bright within this pulsating Leicester side that made their way up to 2nd position on the weekend.

Providing much of the attacking impetus on a rainy day, Maddison was key to the Leicester win, with 4 shots on goal, 3 key passes and a magnificent strike from outside the box to tie up the 3 points.



RIGHT-MIDFIELD - DWIGHT MCNEIL (Burnley)

McNeil's quality with the ball at his foot was certainly on show in Burnley's 3-0 win over West Ham.

Whipping in numerous delightful balls into the box, McNeil registered 6 dribbles, 4 key passes, was responsible for the corner that opened the scoring for Burnley, notched up 1 assist and should have had another if not for a VAR offside.



RIGHT-FORWARD - ADAMA TRAORE (Wolves)

The Wolves powerful winger was an unstoppable force at the Molineux with Aston Villa having no answers for his repeated threats.

Constantly creating chances for his side, Traore had a colossal 11 dribbles, registered an assist and nearly scored himself smashing his shot onto the crossbar.



LEFT-FORWARD - ANTHONY MARTIAL (Manchester United)

Following United's disappointing loss away at Bournemouth, the Red Devil attackers were back to their usual attacking prowess at Old Trafford, led by Anthony Martial.

The French goal sneak produced a damaging performance, with 4 key passes and 2 assists.



MANAGER OF THE WEEK - JURGEN KLOPP (Liverpool)

Despite all the various sub-plots around the league this weekend, the Premier League narrative was rightfully centered on the heavy-weight battle between the league's two big hitters, Liverpool and City.

Liverpool, with the pressure of defeat immense, pulled out a ruthless performance with a clinical edge that saw the Reds bag 3 goals with as many shots on target. Although their win may have been expected with Liverpool's home form superb, Klopp must be giving praise for producing a side that every week looks more and more like a Premier League winning side.

After beating their biggest threat for the cup, Liverpool have moved 8 points clear at the top, and even in November, it looks to be an ominous lead.



GOAL OF THE WEEK - FABINHO (Liverpool)
