Dier, Mourinho and Manchester United's Potentially Expensive Gamble

Dier, Mourinho and Manchester United's Potentially Expensive Gamble

At a time when football has clearly taken a backseat, one of the more interesting transfer rumours still doing rounds involves Tottenham Hotspur's Eric Dier, Manchester United and a figure dangerously close to £50-million. Before analyzing whether any of that makes sense, it is important to understand what Eric Dier means to Tottenham Hotspur. He, in many ways, epitomizes what Pochettino's vision for Spurs is centered around. Eric Dier is 23, entering his prime years, English international with a considerable amount of …
Why Tottenham Hotspur Winning the Premier League will be Beneficial for England

Why Tottenham Hotspur Winning the Premier League will be Beneficial for England

Tottenham Hotspur reduced the gap at the top to four points, following Chelsea's 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday, but can Spurs steal the crown from Antonio Conte's powerhouses? Mauricio Pochettino is seeking revenge on Chelsea, after last season's 2-2 draw against the Blues in May 2016 handed the Premier League title to Leicester City. Spurs have won their last seven league games and have only suffered one defeat since the turn of the year. They are relentless in …
Versatile Tottenham: the Best Defensive Unit in the Premier League

Versatile Tottenham: the Best Defensive Unit in the Premier League

Tottenham's versatility in defence has made them the most formidable unit in the Premier League and they will prove that in Jan Vertonghen's absence over the next two months. Spurs dealt with Toby Alderweireld's injury earlier this season and history suggests they will be able to cope with Vertonghen's too. Granted, the team will be weaker without the presence of the centre-back - like any team in the Premier League would be - but Tottenham have enough options to cope …
Are Tottenham serious challengers for the league title?

Are Tottenham serious challengers for the league title?

Tottenham have gone under the radar this season, after a poor October and November saw them lose ground in the league and get knocked out of the Champions League. This came as a surprise as many individuals under-performed and their 4-2-3-1 formation that had been successful began to falter. Their main problem was in attack, as they went through a period of scoring just four times in seven matches across all competitions after the side's victory over Manchester City. Although …
Where is Vincent Janssen going wrong at Tottenham?

Where is Vincent Janssen going wrong at Tottenham?

The unpredictability of the Premier League is one of the best things about it. Especially when you consider that the only unbeaten team in the league isn't in the top four. Tottenham Hotspur, who recently picked up an impressive 3-2 win over London rivals West Ham are the only side in the league not to have lost a single game, but sit at the fifth position, five points clear of sixth placed Manchester United. While Spurs have drawn the most …
Why Harry Kane's injury and bad form was imminent

Why Harry Kane's injury and bad form was imminent

As the crowd thinned, quite contrary to the heat, which had begun to intensify and accentuate , Tottenham seemed overawed by the occasion and surprised by the impending loss. It looked as if the Tottenham we are accustomed to seeing since last season has assumed the form of being the one of the season before that- frail and weaker than expected. And Monaco had showed Mauricio Pochettino's side the mirror and the reflection from it brought the truth into focus- …
Mousa Dembele - How important is his return from suspension?

Mousa Dembele - How important is his return from suspension?

After a lengthy suspension, Mousa Dembele is finally available for selection in the Premier League for Tottenham. He has been hugely missed in the centre of the park after emerging as one of the side's best players over the last 12 months. The Belgian has undergone an unlikely resurgence at White Hart Lane after once being seen as surplus to requirements. His improvement under Mauricio Pochettino has been huge and he provides qualities to the central midfield that both Victor …
Premier League's youth: Should they stay or should they go?

Premier League's youth: Should they stay or should they go?

The Premier League is bursting with young talent, many of which don't ever get an opportunity to show what they can do with regular first team action. Some of the best managers in the league have found ways to implement their youngsters and bring out the best of their abilities but in an era of inflation, big spending and money-dominated owner-ships; it's becoming increasingly hard for young talent to break through the ranks in some of England's top clubs. The …
