Analysing Tottenham's disappointing decline

Analysing Tottenham's disappointing decline

Tottenham will have welcomed the international break, after some sobering results. It was disappointing to get knocked out of the Carabao Cup to Colchester United,  but the supporters will be far more concerned at their last two defeats. The 7-2 mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich as humiliating and shows how far they have fallen since their Champions League heroics last season. The underlying stats of the game hint that the performance wasn't as bad as the scoreline suggests. …

Arsenal v Tottenham Preview | Team News, Key Men & Predictions

Arsenal come into this North London derby in need of a bounce back. They lost 3-1 to Liverpool last weekend and will need a good result to avoid going into the international break on a significant low. A loss to arch-rivals Tottenham would put a real sour note on the beginning of the season. They'll need to be at their best to avoid that result and keep themselves near the top of the table. Tottenham have struggled to begin the …
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. …

Tottenham vs Newcastle United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham host Newcastle United this weekend as they look to make it three out of three unbeaten in the Premier League. Their performances haven’t been great during the opening two weekends, but they have managed to get positive results in both of their matches. On the other hand, Steve Bruce is already under pressure at St James’ Park following back-to-back defeats. It was always going to be difficult to succeed Rafa Benitez and the supporters’ ire will only grow with …
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 …
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 …
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur | FA Cup Preview

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur | FA Cup Preview

Crystal Palace would love to get back to the FA Cup final, after falling to Manchester United in 2016, but it is not the main priority of their season. They are only three points off the relegation zone, despite being in 14th place. While they would love to beat their London rivals and advance to the fifth round of the FA Cup, it's really a bonus to them and not their primary focus. Tottenham are in the midst of a …
