Analysing Dele Alli's re-emergence at Tottenham under Nuno

Analysing Dele Alli's re-emergence at Tottenham under Nuno

A year can make a big difference in football. During Tottenham's opening Premier League game last season, Dele Alli was subbed at half time and heavily criticised for his performance. 12 months on and the England international played a key role in Tottenham's opening day win over Manchester City. It never felt like a good fit for Alli under Mourinho. The previous manager liked to have players that could carry out a defined role and he didn't manage to get …
Why the last week provides hope for Gareth Bale at Tottenham

Why the last week provides hope for Gareth Bale at Tottenham

It has been a frustrating few months for Tottenham, as they have dropped down the league table and witnessed some turgid football under Jose Mourinho. The season now looks to be focused on the Europa League, as this is the best way to salvage the campaign. Mourinho was in a similar position during his first season as Manchester United manager, as his team finished outside of the top four, but managed to lift Europe's secondary competition to earn Champions League …
2020/21 is a defining season for Dele Alli and Tottenham

2020/21 is a defining season for Dele Alli and Tottenham

The England squad was announced on Tuesday and there was uproar on social media as Jack Grealish wasn't included in Gareth Southgate's 25-man squad. However, there was barely a mention of Dele Alli missing out. This is a player that started four of the Three Lions' 2018 World Cup matches and scored in the quarter-final against Sweden. At the age of 24, he should be cementing himself in the team, but he has been out of the squad for close …

The Top Strikers in the Premier League - Who's More Clinical and Who's More Valuable?

This season there seems to be very little excitement left in the Premier League. The manner in which Chelsea have managed to dominate the league has ensured that there is very little chance involved in deciding the eventual winner of the league. Other teams and their fans do try to manufacture excitement – will Manchester United pip Liverpool to the fourth place in the league? Will Everton pip them both? Will Sunderland get out of jail again? Which of the …
Tottenham's attacking injuries provide an opportunity for Jose Mourinho

Tottenham's attacking injuries provide an opportunity for Jose Mourinho

It is difficult to judge Jose Mourinho's first few months in charge of Tottenham. The Portuguese coach has certainly lost the aura that he once possessed, but it would be unfair to say he is doing poorly at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There has been an upturn in league form, despite the squad getting much weaker since his appointment. The sale of Christian Eriksen, in addition to the injuries to Son Heung-min and Harry Kane have left the team with …

West Ham vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Players

Following an incredible few days in North London, Tottenham travel to West Ham United in the Premier League. This is a fierce rivalry, that is overlooked by many in England and the added intrigue of Jose Mourinho's first match in charge makes it an unmissable game this weekend. It was a surprise that Spurs decided to part company with Mauricio Pochettino, but the decision made sense following the quick arrival of the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager. It became …
Tottenham must start Son and Lucas against Liverpool

Tottenham must start Son and Lucas against Liverpool

Tottenham are weeks away from the biggest match in the club's recent history. It could even be said that it is the biggest game since the club was formed. It is their chance to be crowed champions of Europe. To earn that title, they need to overcome a fellow Premier League side in Liverpool. They will start the match as outsiders, as they have only won once in the last 14 meetings between the two clubs. However, this is a …
Son Heung-min Will be Key to Tottenham's Run-In

Son Heung-min Will be Key to Tottenham's Run-In

Son Heung-min has had another excellent season of development under Mauricio Pochettino. During the last six months, he has emerged as one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League and he will believe there is more to come over the coming years. However, Tottenham's recent dip in form has coincided with a goal drought for the South Korean. The 26-year-old hasn't scored in any of his last five matches and the team have only won once during that …
