Leads 3-1 Tottenham : Spurs Champions Hopes Dealt Huge Blow

Tottenham's hopes of finishing the season inside the Premier League's top four took a huge blow as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at Leeds United. Spurs' interim boss Ryan Mason had targeted four wins to finish the season and with Leicester's surprise defeat at Newcastle on Friday, the door had just been opened for Spurs in the race to qualify for next season's Champions League. However, they suffered an early set back when Stuart Dallas gave the hosts the lead in the 13th minute. Tottenham cancelled out Dallas' opener to draw level in the 25th minute through Heung-Min Son, but Leeds regained the lead just before half-time as Patrick Bamford converted Ezgjan Alioski's cut back from close range. Spurs, who saw two Harry Kane goals correctly ruled out for offside, had chances in ...

Aguero Ready to Join Man City’s Premier League Rivals

Why Tottenham May Avoid £30m Mourinho Pay-off if he is Sacked

Tottenham Hotspur may have to pay less than the reported £30million in pay-off, if they decide to sack Jose Mourinho as manager this summer, Daily Mail reports. Rumours had claimed Mourinho would be due a huge compensation if the club decided to sack him ahead of his contract expiring in 2023. The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss is said to be earning around £15million a year with Spurs and with no break clause, chairman Daniel Levy would have to stump up the remainder of his expected salary should he choose to let the manager go. However, Mourinho’s payout is dependent on Tottenham’s league position and if the club qualifies for Europe. Failure to reach the Champions League or Europa league would see his entitlement reduced in the event he was to lose his job....

Arsenal vs Slavia Prague: Arteta told to drop Aubameyang, Start Martinelli

  Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has urged manager Mikel Arteta to drop captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. According to him, Gabriel Martinelli should take Aubameyang’s place in the starting XI. Arteta dropped Aubameyang a few weeks ago for the North London Derby clash against Tottenham Hotspur, after he arrived late for a team meeting. The Gabon striker was again ineffective as Arsenal lost 3-0 to Liverpool on Saturday. And ahead of their Europa League quarter-final clash against Slavia Prague at the Emirates, Keown feels Arteta has to make a similar decision again. “Arteta has a big decision to make on his captain. He set an example by dropping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the north London derby recently. “Should Arteta not be dropping him for perfo...

Mourinho Blames Individual Mistakes for Tottenham’s 2-2 Draw with Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has blamed individual mistakes for his side’s 2-2 draw with Newcastle United on Sunday. Joelinton gave Newcastle the lead in 28 minutes before Harry Kane’s brace put Spurs in front after the first 45 minutes. However, Arsenal loanee Joe Willock scored a late equalizer for the Magpies as both teams shared a point each. “It’s not a good point. We came here with the objective to win it, so (I am) not happy with a point,” Mourinho said at a post-match press conference. “I don’t want to go very deep on my analysis because what I feel, what I think, what I want to say, cannot be with you. It can only be in the dressing room.” He added, “I would say that (there were) too many individual mistakes and then mistakes give instability and ma...

I Won’t Play that Game – Mourinho Reacts to Transfer Talk about Harry Kane

  Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he will not “play that game” of speculating on Harry Kane’s future. According to him, Kane should “be happy with the moment he is living” for England and Spurs. The 27-year-old striker stoked rumours he may consider leaving Tottenham after Euro 2020 when asked about reports linking him with a move to Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid. “I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there,” Kane said in response. However, Mourinho, speaking at a press conference on Friday, said: “I cannot play that game. I have to focus on what is for us. “Of course I am always pleased when my players go to national teams and do well. “...

Harry Kane vs Haaland: Paul Scholes Names Player Man United Should Sign

  Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has named the player the club should sign between Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland. Man United, who are expected to sign a striker in this summer transfer window, have been linked with both Kane and Haaland. Asked which player Man United should sign between Kane and Haaland, Scholes said on the Webby & O’Neill YouTube channel, “He’s [Haaland] the best striker out there in the world, without a shadow of a doubt. It’s ridiculous what he’s doing. “If you sign him now, you’ll get ten years of him. “With Harry Kane, at 28, 29, he’s in the peak of his career, but you’re talking two or three years as a top-class striker. “When you get to 31, 32, you probably lose your legs a little bit, s...

Wenger Advises Harry Kane on Leaving Tottenham

Kane on Sunday, took his international tally to 33 goals in 52 matches for England when he netted against Albania. It has led to several football figures calling for the 27-year-old to leave Spurs to fulfil his career ambitions. But Wenger believes Spurs can still give Kane the platform he needs to achieve his goals. Wenger told beIN Sports: “Tottenham are in a position where they can be ambitious and we should maybe not judge only today’s situation. “Tottenham was top of the league in December. There were a few times when they were top of the league when I was still at Arsenal. ...

Gareth Southgate names best five strikers

England manager, Gareth Southgate, has listed the top five strikers in world football. They include Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspurs), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan), Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Kylian Mbappe (PSG). According to Southgate, he has included his captain Kane, because of his incredible record. Kane has scored 28 goals in all competitions for club and country, providing 17 assists. Southgate said: “There are not many outright No9s in the world at the moment at a really elite level. “Lukaku is obviously one. The two boys we’re speaking about – Kane and Lewandowski – are. I suppose Aguero has been. “But you don’t get that profile of forwards so often, there’s a lot more of the interchangeable forward players that can pl...
