Headache for Martinez as Man U and Man City players causes problem

Headache for Martinez as Man U and Man City players causes problem
The clash of styles between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola is creating a headache for Belgium manager Roberto Martinez.

Belgium’s golden generation are heading to the World Cup as one of the favourites - but Martinez’ biggest problem is moulding together his Premier League stars.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham make up the majority of his squad - but play markedly differing styles at club level. Martinez’ concern has been drilling into his players what he wants from them when out of possession.

The counter attacking styles of Mourinho and Antonio Conte see Unitedand Chelsea players drop off without the ball. Meanwhile, the ultra-offensive Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino order City and Tottenham to press high up the pitch

Belgium - who face England in Group G - completed their preparations for Russia with a 4-1 win against Costa Rica on Monday.
