Danny Ings gives Southampton deserved victory over woeful Tottenham as Harry Kane goes off injured

content_img

data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

 

Tottenham had themselves gone 17 games without a clean sheet away from home – their longest such sequence for more than 40 years – and it was quickly easy to see why.

A starting midfield two of Christian Eriksen and Tanguy Ndombele was providing only limitethe club’s troubles.Pogba has been linked with Juventus and Real Madrid after a poor season at Old Trafford.But Bosnich believes the World Cup winner should be the centrepiece of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.He told RT of Pogba’s critics: “I think a ld shield to a back four that now looks collectively ponderous.

Nathan Redmond had started for Southampton in a more central position alongside Ings in attack and soon dribbled inside Toby Alderweireld before forcing a good save by the former Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Centre-back Jack Stephens then cut open Tottenham’s entire defence with a perfectly weighted but still well signposted pass from inside Southampton’s half. Ings ran onto the pass and, displaying all his vast confidence, brilliantly flicked the ball inside Alderweireld before wrong-footing Gazzaniga to finish inside the near post. It was not quite Paul Gascoigne against Scotland at Euro ’96 but at least comparable. Ndombele, a £55 million signing, was then almost immediately forced off for Tottenham with what a frustrated Mourinho estimated was his 10th injury of the season.

Tottenham did finally create two clear chances shortly before half-time. Kane’s shot from just outside the penalty area was sufficiently powerful to prompt a spillage by Alex McCarthy but he just recovered in time to smother Dele Alli’s follow up. The resulting corner did then fall invitingly to Jan Vertonghen on the edge of the six-yard box but he hooked his effort well over.

Southampton again tried to take the game to Tottenham at the start of the second-half, with Redmond volleying a clear chance over and then Alderweireld surviving a confident penalty appeal for handball. The ball had certainly been fired in powerfully by Ryan Bertrand – and it is doubtful whether Alderweireld could really have got out of the way – but it did very clearly strike his outstretched arm. The VAR Harry Lennaverpool are on the brink of ‘legendary’ status.Defending the Champions League title this season, Liverpool are also regarded as Premier League champions-elect in England.Blind told AD: “Liverpool today still has to win its fcastle United are eyeing Gremio striker Everton Soares.Foot Mercato says Newcastle have tabled a loan offer to Gremio for Everton with an option to buy should he impress. The permanent option offered is worth €45m.However, the deal falls short for irst English national tird, however, went along with Dean’s original decision and no penalty was given.

Tottenham became increasingly dominant in possession but were struggling badly to create clear chances until Kane’s last touch of the game. He had latched onto a free-kick but just timed his run to be marginally offside, behind Jack Stephens, as the ball was played. The disappointment of a raised offside flag was then compounded when he immediately grasped his hamstring. Tottenham pressed forward in the closing minutes but, beyond a Lucas Moura shot that was well charged down, rarely looked like creating an equaliser.

How Liverpool became the Premier League’s set-piece kings

content_img

data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

Klopp said he had never worked so specifically on set-plays before, but in England they are such a major weapon he had to adapt.

“Maybe it is good, sometimes not that good. Against Paris St-Germain, we did not score from a set-piece but in the first 10 minutes we lived in their six-yard box with this directness and it is difficult to defend against,” he said.

“Also, it created the intensity of the game. We had three or four corners and did not score, but the crowd was up.”

The problem, Klopp says, is knowing how long to dedicate to it.

“It is really difficult to find the time. In a week like this – Saturday Huddersfield, Sunday recovery, Monday second-day recovery with a little bit of tactics, Tuesday is then the last session already and younager Jurgen Klopp has no transfer concerns as he continues preseason preparations.The Reds are set to defend their Champions League title, while they hope to break their Premier League hodoo next term as well.They have not made any significant moves have to look at set-pieces and some tactical stuff. In a normal week, we have time for it, but we don’t have a lot of normal weeks.

“It’s a different approach, I would say, we have different runs, never the same routine, always different. We put more focus on it. We did a lot and it’s good to see that it’s worked out somehow.”

Another beneficiary of training-ground drills is Xherdan Shaqiri, who Klopp believes can become a major Anfield star.

“I don’t think anybody has an idea how good Shaq can be,” said Klopp. “I knew him when he was 19 at Bayern and he was already an outstanding talent. He had a good first year, second year he wasn’t that good – but that can happen. Then he left. You can disappear a bit. Inter Milan and then Stoke.

“Thankfully, he didn’t disappear. He always had his moments. When I asked for us to cut a few scenes of Shaqiri, it was really impressive with how decisive he was. Signing him was a logical thing to d to form.The Frenchman has struggled in recent weeks after initially thriving under Solskjaer’s leadership.Speaking ahead of Saturday’s trip to Huddersfield, Solskjaer said: “Anthony [Martial] has got loads of goals in him.”It’s up to us now to move o. He’s still not the finished article. He still has a lot of space for improvement. He gives us something different. So far, we haven’t really used his set- pieces but they are outstanding.”

Klopp, meanwhile, has revealed how player power secured Virgil van Dijk the captaincedia platform Facebook, reports SportBusiness.Madridista Nation is designed to be an exclusive Facebook community for the club’s fans, offering photos, videos, exclusive content and special stickers. Real Madrid has priced membership at €2.49 ($2.7y in midweek. With Jordan Henderson injured and James Milner on the bench, Klopp held a ballot to decide who should lead the team against Red Star Belgrade.

“It was not my decision. That was the players’ decision,” said Klopp. “I decided ‘Hendo’ and ‘Milly’ would stay [captain and vice-captain]. Then I said for the next two, the players can vote. Virgil is still young. He looks more of a man than he really is.”
