Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal were disappointing in defeat against Liverpool last weekend. There was a clear plan from Unai Emery, as he looked to counter with pace and exploit the wide spaces left vacant by the advancing Reds' full-backs. It wasn't a bad idea. In fact, if Nicolas Pepe had scored his one-on-one at 0-0, the Gunners may have gone on to get something from the game. However, the new signing was denied by Adrian and a predictable home win came to pass. …
Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Mauricio Pochettino has made his displeasure around England’s closed transfer window known yet again, and with good reason. Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are all into the final year of their contracts, leaving Spurs vulnerable to bids in the European transfer market, the window for which closes only on the second of September. Given the lack of defensive cover, the club may still hang onto the two players on the wrong side of thirty and let them run …

Man City vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Key Men & Predictions

Tottenham face a very difficult trip to face Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend. Both teams managed to win their opening fixture, but Pep Guardiola’s team were far more convincing. They put five goals past West Ham United with Raheem Sterling scoring a hat-trick. Meanwhile, Tottenham had to come from behind to beat Aston Villa.

Tottenham Vs Liverpool | Champions League Final Preview

When the Champions League semi-final draw was made, there were very few football fans out there who gave either Liverpool or Tottenham a realistic chance of making it to the final. After their respective first legs, fewer fans would have given them any chance. But in two successive nights of miraculous football, both Liverpool and Tottenham overcame first-leg deficits, and seemingly insurmountable odds to reach the final in Madrid on Saturday night. As both of the teams showed in their …
Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

The Champions League final next weekend leaves me in a position I would rather not be in. It pits Liverpool, the club I have supported since 1988 against Tottenham, a team I have an immense soft spot for. I wrote a piece a couple of years back about Spurs being the poster-boys for sustainable spending and have long maintained that they deserve a trophy to show for their efforts.  I will be rooting for a Liverpool win come the first …

Bournemouth vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham have a tricky fixture to negotiate this weekend at Bournemouth, as they prepare for the second leg of their Champions League tie. The last couple of months have been disappointing for Mauricio Pochettino's men when it comes to the Premier League. They have fallen far off the pace, while their position in the top four has come under threat. For the home side, they have had another successful campaign in the top-flight and they will be looking to finish …
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 …

Chelsea vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The Premier League has another round of midweek matches, with the highlight coming at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea welcome Tottenham. It is a game of huge proportions at the top of the table, with both teams needing a win for differing reasons. The pressure is on the hosts and especially their manager Maurizio Sarri after the Carabao Cup final. The Italian can't suffer another defeat in a big game. It would be his third in just over a week. Meanwhile, …
