"Hopefully there would have been silverware, that's why Mourinho was brought in. It didn't work out. It was a big call to sack him before the final. I'm not sure it was the right time. "There are bigger questions at Tottenham. It's not a top six team at the moment. It needs a rebuild on the pitch. There's a hell of a lot of work that needs to be done."

Bale Treble Against Blades Lifts Spurs Fifth

Gareth Bale scored a brilliant hat-trick as Tottenham shook off their Carabao Cup final misery and kept alive their Champions League hopes with a 4-0 win over relegated Sheffield United. Bale's 36th-minute opener, a fine instinctive flick from close range, was scant reward for Spurs' first-half dominance, but though Heung-Min Son saw an effort after the break (52) ruled out for offside, the Welshman struck twice more legitimately and emphatically soon after. Bale brought up his 50th Premier League goal shortly after the hour mark after being set up by Son on a Spurs breakaway and hit a fierce third without breaking stride (69) before departing to hearty applause, albeit only from the home bench.

Ziyech converted Timo Werner's squared pass after Chelsea sprang the Manchester City offside trap 10 minutes into the second half and the goal proved decisive in a game of few chances. City could yet face Chelsea again in the Champions League final after both sides advanced in Europe earlier this week, but they were well below par at Wembley and their problems were compounded by an injury to Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian was forced off early in the second half, making him a doubt for next weekend's Carabao Cup final against Tottenham, and Pep Guardiola's side were unable to muster a response after Ziyech's strike despite dom...

Solskjaer wants Cavani to stay after Spurs display

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Edinson Cavani's performance in Manchester United's 3-1 win over Tottenham and hopes he can persuade the striker to stay when his contract is up at the end of the season. The 34-year-old Uruguayan scored United's second goal with an excellent diving header in Sunday's come-from-behind victory and had an earlier effort controversially ruled out. Cavani arrived at Old Trafford as a free agent last October on a deal until the end of the campaign, with the option of a further year. Unlike most extension clauses, it has to be agreed by both parties before it can be triggered and there is speculation that Cavani could move to Argentine giants Boca Juniors. "Fantastic performance, we are awaiting his decision if he wants to stay or wants to move on," sa...

Tottenham vs Man United: I’ll Starve my Son if he Acts as Son Did – Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lambasted Son Heung-min for the role the South Korean played in Manchester United’s disallowed goal during their 3-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday. Manchester United legend, Roy Keane had earlier slammed the South Korea international for acting embarrassingly. Solskjaer and his men thought they had taken the lead 10 minutes before the breakthrough of Edinson Cavani but the goal was ruled out after a VAR check that showed that Scott McTominay put his hand in Son’s face. Son then scored for Tottenham before half time but United came back very strong in the second half with Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood all scoring to give the Red Devils all three points. However, Solskjaer was not happy with the reaction of Son and Spurs’ players for the disallowed ...

Tottenham vs Man United: Premier League Releases Statement on Cavani’s Disallowed Goal

  The Premier League Professional Game Match Officials Board (PGMOL) has explained why Cavani’s goal was disallowed in the Manchester United clash with Tottenham on Sunday. The goal was ruled out after a VAR review showed that Scott McTominay’s fouled Son Heung-min. Cavani thought he had put United in the lead against Tottenham in the first half, but the Uruguayan’s effort was disallowed after McTominay’s hand caught Son in the build-up to the goal. Referee Chris Kavanagh used the pitch-side monitor to rule out the goal and at half time, the PGMOL supported VAR’s and referee’s decision. It explained that that McTominay’s arm movement was unnatural. A statement from the PGMOL to Sky Sports read: “It wasn’t part of McTominay’s natural running movement and it was ca...

Tottenham Hotspur vs Man City: Fans to Attend Carabao Cup final

  The EFL are confident fans will be in stadiums for the Carabao Cup Final in April. This follows positive talks over making the game safe for supporters to return. Tottenham and Manchester City meet at Wembley stadium on April 25. The match was initially excluded from a list of events that would welcome a reduced number of spectators during the roadmap out of lockdown. The EFL have since campaigned for what chairman Rick Parry has described as “the pinnacle of the season”. Asked on Sky Sports about fans attending the Final, Parry said recently: “Clearly we are hopeful. We didn’t enter into this season thinking we were going to be without fans. “Of course, the Carabao Cup isn’t a dress rehearsal for us, it’s the pinnacle of the season and a really important ev...

‘PSG and Mourinho wanted me’ – Rudiger confirms outside offers but insists he wants Chelsea stay

The defender could have departed Stamford Bridge in the fall but opted to stay and has regained his place as a vital squad member Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger said he had offers from PSG and Tottenham in the fall, but insisted that now he is fighting to earn a new contract under Thomas Tuchel. Frank Lampard dropped the Germany international down to fifth in the centre-back pecking order, which led to offers from Jose Mourinho's Tottenham and Tuchel's former club PSG. There was further interest from Barcelona, Roma and AC Milan but ultimately, the Blues opted to keep their 28-year-old central defender. He rose up to third in the pecking order but only became a regular starter after Frank Lampard was sacked in January and replaced by Tuchel.
