Tottenham, the great covered in the fight for the Premier League

The fight for the Premier League is more exciting than ever. After eight days played, the Leicester is in first position, and the Aston Villa sixth, with one game less, closing the European positions, just three points behind. The Everton who was the leader after the break, is now seventh, five points behind the leader.

The first team of the Big Six is Tottenham of Jose Mourinho, which is second just one point behind Leicester, and tied with the Liverpool which is third. The Portuguese coach’s team did not enter the pools for winning the Premier League, and right now it’s the first component of the Big Six after six days.

After a bad season, in which the cycle ended in the Spurs from Mauricio Pochettino in the least predictable way possible, it arrived Mourinho to take his place precisely in the October national team break after the draw at home against the Sheffield United.

Despite the impetus that the arrival of Mourinho to the team, achieving that first victory against the West Ham away from home and establish a series of good results that brought them closer to the top positions, the team began to fall again, showing very irregular until the end of the season, and having to settle for that sixth position that it snatched from the Wolves on the last day.

After this terrible season, the Tottenham went to the market in search of players who could strengthen the team. After the departure of Eriksen in the winter market, it was necessary to strengthen the midfield, and for this they brought the Danish Hojbjerg of the Southampton, in a fairly profitable operation for Spurs in which they put the side Walker-Peters.

Given the weakness shown on the sides, the Tottenham signed the irish Matt Doherty from Wolves, to compete for the position with Serge Aurier. On the other hand, Daniel Levy I would take advantage of the situation of Sergio Reguilon, to bring him to London and take a great leap in quality on that left-back, who had limped so much last season.

Taking advantage of the great relationship with him Real Madrid, Daniel Levy He wanted to knock on the table bringing back what was his great star Gareth Bale, which has always been liked by Mourinho, and from which it is expected that with the help of the Portuguese coach and the return to a league like the Premier League that enhances its great virtues, from a tremendous quality jump to the attack of some Spurs, which has one of the best tridents in Europe and of course the Premier League.

Another Welshman who arrived at the market close was the young Joe Rodon, from Swansea, and that comes to replace a Jan Vertonghen, who went free to Benfica, and that ends an eight-year stage with the Spurs.

Finally, the Tottenham finally signed an alternate of guarantees for Harry Kane with the arrival of the Brazilian Carlos Vinicius, who comes from leaving at Benfica where he has achieved a total of 18 goals in the last season.

Closed the chapter of transfers, Mourinho manages to form a great team in which perhaps a renowned center-back would be missing accompanying Alderweireld, with two wingers who really like to join the attack and who will give depth to the team, a great goalkeeper with experience as Hugo Lloris, a very physical midfield with a lot of work, and a lethal trident that can compete with anyone.

In the last match against West Brom there was even four new faces compared to last season in the starting eleven. Except for some nuances throughout the season such as the entrance of Aurier by Doherty, the of The Celso by Ndombele or the entrance of Harry Winks in the double pivot, standing as the eleven type of Mourinho. However, for the project to take hold, the key will be the following players.

Harry Kane

The English striker has returned to a very high level, achieving a total of seven goals and eight assists in these first eight games, that is, he participated in 15 of the 19 goals directly from the Tottenham in the 8 days of Premier League.

After a difficult year in which injuries hampered their performance, the team lowered their level a lot and very soon fell from the top positions. Despite the arrival of a great striker like Carlos Vinicius, what Kane this healthy will be key to the future of the Spurs this season, as he makes the entire offense of the Tottenham, and when he and Son get together Mourinho seems unstoppable.

Heung-Min Son

Korean is another key to Tottenham, since he is that special player who can win you a game by himself. When he is not Kane, Son He has shown that his pulse does not tremble, and he throws the team on his back when the English forward is absent.

His verticality in attack, his speed and his great handling of both legs, with which he is capable of generating an occasion at any time, make Son one of the best players in the Premier League and one of the best in the world in his position.

This season he has eight goals and two assists, leading the scorers table, highlighting that match against the Southampton in which he won a poker game against one of the best teams in the Premier League at this beginning of the season.

Like what was said with Harry Kane, what Son this fresh in the key games, it will be very important to aspire to great things this season.

Tanguy Ndombele

The French midfielder seems to have loosened his differences with Mourinho, and after starting as a substitute the season he has taken a place in the starting eleven after the great cup match against Chelsea.

Ndombele came as the great signing of Tottenham last season, and to date he had failed to measure up. However, recovering that Tanguy Ndombele of the Lyon for the cause, it will be key to the schemes of Mourinho, since despite being a physical midfielder with great travel as SissokoHe has that technique when it comes to moving and that pass that his French compatriot does not have.

Gareth Bale

The Welsh winger arrives at what was his home, after some very poor seasons in which he has been involved in controversy, and that added to the injuries have not allowed him to shine in the Real Madrid.

Now go back to the Premier League, a physical league that enhances the qualities of a Bale that he is happy again in London, and that he hopes to recover his best level from the hand of a Mourinho who asked for it on several occasions when he was a technician Manchester United.

If successful, the trident formed by Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane Y Gareth Bale in physical fullness, it would be one of the most powerful in Europe, capable of sentencing any rival, and with which fans of the Spurs they can dream about everything.

Hugo Lloris

The French goalkeeper is another of the great names to take into account in this team, after a very complicated season in which he could only play half of the games.

Hugo Lloris He is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. Having him in goal is life insurance, since he has shown since he arrived that he gives points when the team goes through bad times, and that in important matches he makes a difference as seen in the Champions League in which Tottenham reached the final, or the world what took France.

Having a guaranteed goalkeeper is key for a team that wants to aspire to something like Tottenham.

Great team from Tottenham for this season, which must take advantage of the large number of absences in defense of a Liverpool who will have to hold out until the winter market, and a Manchester City that has once again generated many doubts at the beginning of the season. Therefore, this may be the year of a Tottenham that from the hand of Mourinho he hopes to finally win the long-awaited Premier League.

The current Monaco player chose two Tottenham footballers, a team that shares a strong rivalry with its two teammates in the city of London (Arsenal and Chelsea). The Spanish lined up Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane in his starting eleven, the two greatest exponents of the Spurs’ attack.

In fact, Fabregas had the opportunity to enjoy a lot of London derbies against Tottenham during his stay in England. He won ten, tied eight and only lost five in the 501 games he played in the English championship (79 goals and 146 assists). That rivalry that lived in the flesh seems to have stayed on the field, since the World Champion had no qualms about including one of the most prolific couples in the Premier League. Between the English and the South Korean this season they already have 14 goals and 10 assists.

In his ideal eleven also appears Mohamed Salah along with his partner Alisson Becker, who returned two days ago after overcoming an injury that had sustained him in the dry dock for a month. Among those chosen, there are also ‘Gunners’ players: the Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whom he names captain, and the Egyptian Mohamed Elneny.

Kurt Zouma, behind, is the only representative of Chelsea, a team from the British capital where Cesc spent four and a half years. The Frenchman is the ‘top scorer’ of the ‘blues’ with three goals in the Premier League, the same records as Jorginho and Timo Werner. In defense, the two-time Premier League champion also included 20-year-old Englishman Tariq Lamptey in his XI, Brighton sensation at the start of the campaign, and Ruben Dias, who arrived at Manchester City in the last transfer market.

Above, the former Barça player opted for the Mexican from the Wolves, Raúl Jiménez (4 goals in the Premier League), and Leeds ‘9’ Patrick Bamford (6 goals and 1 assist) to accompany ‘Hurrikane’ in the attack .

The full composition of Cesc Fabregas’ team is as follows:

XI headline: Alisson (Liverpool), Lamptey (Brighton), Ruben Dias (City), Zouma (Chelsea), Elneny (Arsenal), Son (Tottenham), Salah (Liverpool), Aubameyang (Arsenal), Raul Jiménez (Wolverhampton), Kane (Tottenham) y Bamford (Leeds).

Substitutes: Steer (Aston Villa), Bernardo (Brighton), Casey (Leeds) y Jairo Riedewald (Crystal Palace).


Liverpool daily complains of criticism of Salah and protection of Kane

Local newspaper targets analysts for judging Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane in very similar actions differently

The first Monday of November began in England, as elsewhere, with many analysts judging the same event differently. This is the complaint of the newspaper “Echo“, from Liverpool, after the seventh day of the Premier League, noting that they did not judge Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane the same.

For those who did not see it, both starred in penalties, which within the context of the match, became essential for their teams.

It should be said that both, in addition to favorites, played at home.

But “Echo“highlights that the critics are being tougher with the penalty of Wrong. Many believe that he forced the situation to receive the foul and get the Reds a maximum penalty.

The play involved Arthur Masuaku from West Ham, who, perhaps recklessly, kicked the “soles of the feet” of Wrong, While Wrong had the ball under control, causing the Egyptian to fall into the area. The referee scored a penalty and the VAR confirmed.

Much of the English press complained about the play, saying it was forced and that the Reds forward took advantage of the VAR issue, knowing that the video refereeing would confirm that “fragile” touch as a penalty.

Important: “Echo” does not disagree. It only points out a lack of judgment of those who did not attack the player of the Tottenham.

It turns out that the penalty in Kane it was also subtle. It happened on the edge of the area after Adam Lallana from Brigton jump and fall on top of the player Tottenham on a defensive rebound. The referee scored and the VAR confirmed.

Many analysts “pointed” less to Kane for “forcing the fault”. Only one or the other regretted it.

“They were both doing the exact same thing: trying to circumvent the rules and enforce them in favor of their team in the hope of receiving a sanction,” the newspaper writes. “The only obvious difference seems to be that one is Mohamed Salah, an Egyptian striker who plays for the Liverpool, while the other is Harry Kane, England’s captain who plays for Tottenham, “he concludes.
