Belgium 8-1 Estonia: Eden Hazard scores but leaves field injured as Roberto Martinez's

BELGIUM 8-1 ESTONIA: Any doubts over Roberto Martinez's credentials as Belgium manager were put to rest as the world's fourth-ranked side brushed Estonia aside with a magical performance. Thomas Meunier, Eden Hazard, Yannick Carrasco and an own goal from Liverpool's Ragnar Klavan all contributed to the win with Napoli forward Dries Mertens scoring a brace. However, the dominant victory was left with a dark cloud hanging over it as star man Hazard left the field in the 74th minute with an injury.

Jose Mourinho took time out from his troubles as Manchester United manager to take in the tennis at The O2 Arena in North Greenwich, London on Sunday. The 53-year-old has endured a mediocre start to his reign as Red Devils boss since taking over the role on May 27.

MIKE DICKSON AT THE O2: Trying to gauge the simmering emotions of Novak Djokovic is becoming a more complex exercise than assessing who might end the year as world No 1.

England 37-21 South Africa: Tries from Jonny May, Courtney Lawes, George Ford and Owen

SAM PETERS AT TWICKENHAM: England put their South Africa hoodoo to bed in spectacular fashion with a comprehensive four-try demolition at Twickenham that extends Eddie Jones unbeaten run to 10 games since taking over as head coach. The home side, without a win over the Springboks since 2006, powered clear in style to deliver a thoroughly deserved win in difficult conditions to maintain the momentum built up during last season's Grand Slam campaign and the ensuing summer tour to Australia. Jones' men, bedevilled by injury in the lead up that saw them lose 12 potential starters, shrugged off their disrupted preparations to record one of their most convincing victories of the Australian's increasingly impressive tenure.

Pep Guardiola's indulgence may not be the right path for John Stones... I'm starting to

GLENN HODDLE: John Stones is at a crossroads in his career. He may only be 22 but he now has to decide whether he wants to be something really special or end up being a defender with whom managers eventually lose patience. I know that seems unlikely at Manchester City, where he has a manager for whom passing the ball out form the back is sacrosanct. And some will say that he a great environment in which to thrive. But I'm beginning to fear Stones isn't learning. Maybe Pep Guardiola isn't what he needs; it's almost like the over-indulgent father who never reprimands his son, who consequently never learns appropriate boundaries of behaviour.

Who is the Premier League's most under-rated player? From Liverpool star James Milner to

The likes of Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez and Phillippe Coutinho will never be short of superlatives, with managers, players, pundits and fans queueing up to praise the Premier League's superstars.
