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


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.

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.

Liverpool cut down Blades: Mo Salah powers Jurgen Klopp’s men 13 points clear as they go one year undefeated


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

here was a fine performance from Jordan Henderson in midfield, and a goal and an assist for Salah who might have had a first half hat-trick were it not for the saves of Dean Henderson, the Sheffield United on-loan goalkeeper. The away side played with two strikers and sent on two fresh substitutes in attack after the second goal but as Wilder would later say, they never truly laid a glove on Liverpool save for a couple of first-half shots from distance.

When Oli McBurnie, one of those substitutes, missed a back-post chance in the 87th minute it was clear that this was not his team’s night. As with the Manchester City title-winning teams of the two previous seasons, it is the control that this Klopp team exerts over the course of 90-plus minutes that breaks opposition teams. They squeeze the hope out of them.

Liverpool once again lead the table with a game in hand by 13 points from Leicester City in second place and 14 from Manchester City who are back in third. Their lead is now so great that they can afford to squander a few here and there, although with the Arsenal record of 49 unbeaten in sight one can only imagine that they will be taking nothing for granted.

Wilder had decided that his team spend part of their morning doing a warm-up on Stanley Park, the old Victorian grounds that join Goodison Park to the north and Anfield in the south. He comidfielder Pablo Fornals admits his first Premier League game was very hard.The summer signing from Villarreal made his first start for the club in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brighton.“This is all new for me,” he told West Ham TV. “It is a new leaguld laugh about it later, the “lack of pooper-scoopers” and the “Scouse wit” directed at his players from their fellow park-users. He had intended it, with Anfield’s new main stand looming behind them, as a source of inspiration, but wondered if it might have had the opposite effect.

here was little jeopardy for Liverpool in possession and they had lots of it, the needle staying at more than 70 per cent for the whole game. Salah struck his goal with a run across the away area, connecting perfectly with Andy Robertson’s cross from the left and turning the ball through the legs of Henderson. The problem had come when George Baldock lost his footing as he attempted to clear Virgil van Dijk’s ball from deep and Robertson was let in down the flank, although the quality of cross and finish was still very high.

In the second half Salah hit the post on the hour with a cross that everyone else left. Then four minutes later Liverpool worked it from Alisson quickly all the way up the left wing via Robertson, Mane and Salah. The final ball to Mane allowed him space to shoot and when Henderson saved the first effort, the Liverpool striker had time to take a beat and then lash the rebound into the gbout the new system that manager Mikel Arteta is trying to implement.The Gunners were happy to pick up their first win of the Arteta era against Manchester United on New Year’s Day.They played a high intensity game that was rarely seen in the last feoal.

There was a Premier League debut for Harvey Elliott in the very final minutes and he will surely be one of those in line for a start againthe Women’s World Cup. We have more from New Zealand women’s national team head coach Tom Sermanni, who this reporter interviewed in Grenoble after their Group E match against Canada, in which they lost 2-0. He talked specifically about improving thest Everton in the FA Cup as Klopp conserves his resources. He cannot afford to play anything like his full-strength side on Sunday but he will also presume that Carlo Ancelotti will see it as a chance to secure a famous win. As for Wilder, he said that there would be 11 new faces in the Sheffield United team that plays non-league AFC Fylde. “I’ll apologise now” he said, at the end of what had been a very long evening.

erby manager is expected to field him in a midfield role when he plays against Barnsley tonight.

“The manager has been great in terms of helping me get involved in the coaching side as well. I will go into meetings with the manager and staff and I have given my opinions on things.”

Liverpool hoped the 24-year-old would enjoy some rest and recuperation ahead of an important second season following an inconsistent first year on Merseyside.

Raheem Sterling scores twice as Manchester City canter to crucial three points at Crystal Palace


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

terling’s mental prowess matches his physical ability and one senses that he feels ready to have a big say in the destination of this season’s title.

It says much about how key Sterling is to manager Pep Guardiola that he was not among those rotated between the Champions League tie against Tottenham and the trip to Palace.

Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane were rested at Spurs, but both men returned to play key roles on Sunday and they will surely retain their places for Wednesday night’s Champions League second leg.

It was De Bruyne who set up Sterling for his first goal in the 15th minute. Palace assistant Ray Lewington had been waving his team forwards when Vincent Kompany headed the ball away from his own area and it eventually dropped to the Belgian.

Still inside his own half of the pitch, De Bruyne brilliantly caught out Palace’s defence with a low pass that released Sterling, who beat Scott Dann for pace and shot past goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

urprisingly, De Bruyne’s assist was his first in the League since May 2018 when he had set up City’s final goal of the 2017/18 season.

Making Sterling’s finish even more impressive was that just four minutes earlier he had missed an open goal after being expertly teed up by David Silva. It was the kind of mistake that could have lingered on a weaker mind, but the 24-year-old is no longer one to dwell on his mistakes.

Whereas Guardiola had opted for a more cautious approach at Tottenham, City were back near their dominant best with Palace at times made to look like a collection of players drafted in to complete a training routine.

On the day named ‘Masters Sunday’ by golf enthusiasts, De Bruyne was reaching for every club in the bag with his range of passing.

He played one cross-field ball for Aguero at the end of the first half that caught the striker on his heels and De Bruyne let his team-mate know that he should have been more alert.

Palace had beaten City in December, but could barely get the ball off their opponents during a first half which finished with the visitors having 77 per cent of possession.

he only time the home side threatened City before the break was when Christian Benteke nodded down a Luka Milivojevic chip, but Ilkay Gundogan got to the ball before substitute Cheikhou Kouyate.

Unsurprisingly, it remained one-way traffic in the second half, with Sane being denied a chance to score from De Bruyne’s pass thanks to Martin Kelly guiding the ball though to Guaita.

City’s second goal came just after the hour mark as Walker, Aguero and Silva combined to work the ball to Sane, whose cross was side-footed in by Sterling. It looked a simple finish, but it required a cool head and perfect placement.

That should have made for a comfortable final half hour for Guardiola’s team, but Aguero was replaced by Jesus a to slap in a transfer demand at Liverpool, it has been revealed.AS says Liverpool sources have confirmed Salah is unsettled at Liverpool and remains unhappy with manager Jurgen Klopp.It’s suggested Salah was talked out of demanding a move away earlind headed straight for the dressing-room before Milivojevic gave Palace some hope with eigt three years.The Blues haven’t won the Premier League title since lifting the trophy at the end of the 2016-17 season.Hasslebaink is happy to see manager Frank Lampard fielding so many youngsters and believes his decision to blood them into the squaht minutes remaining.

Kompany and Gundogan combined to foul James McArthur on the edge of the penalty area and Milivojevic stepped up to send his free-kick through the wall and into the right corner of Ederson’s net.

But as Palace pushed men forwards in search of an equaliser, De Bruyne broke and played in Jesus to calm any nerves, although it is hard tember. As we did for the Qualification Group Stage, we again look at key players, particularly imports on the team rosters. We also give our perspective on Lugano of Switzerland, which has received attention in the States as 16 of the players are youo imagine Guardiola and his team feeling anything but confident.

rystal Palace are the only team in the entire top flight to have won more points on the road than they have at home this season. Just four wins from 16 games at Selhurst Park is relegation form, and they are only safe because of results on their travels – like .

At home against a City who – strangely enough – have a host of star players rested after the Champions League first leg at Spurs in midweek and need a win to keep pace with Liverpool at the top of the table, you can’t really fancy Palace to get a result today.

t’s a 4-3-3 with Ilkay Gundogan at the base of midfield, while there is no place even on the bench for Fernandinho, who presumably is being kept fresh for Wednesday. Bernardo Silva is not fit to start.

Meanwhile for , Christian Benteke comes in for Michy Batshuayi up front. Scott Dann returns in central defence. Aaron Wan-Bissaka – who has been linked with a move to City – has the chance to show the champions what he can do.
