Villa and Spurs on the beat with biggest PL Matchday 4 shockers

No one saw Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur putting six past Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Manchester United or Dean Smith's Aston Villa putting seven past defending champions Liverpool. However, this was the case in the last two games on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 Premier League season. This season hasn't been short of goals with lots of goals being scored thus far and shocking upsets being mounted too. Who would have thought that Everton and Aston Villa would be the only two teams with a 100% record at this point in the season? It's still early days but Carlo Ancelotti and Dean Smith deserve some credit for the performance of their teams thus far.

Jose Mourinho wants Wolves’ Matt Doherty at Spurs

Not much has been heard about Jose Mourinho's plans at Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season. However, a report by Sky Sports has claimed that the Portuguese manager is interested in signing Wolves right-back Matt Doherty this summer. Spurs have needed a replacement for Kieran Trippier after he left to join La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid more than a year ago. It can also be recalled that Kyle Walker-Peters was sold to Southampton while the club are presently in talks with AC Milan over a potential move to the San Siro for Serge Aurier. Therefore, wisdom demands that they get a decent right-back to fill the void that has been left in the team.  Doherty, 28, has established himself as one of the key men at Wolves since their return to the Premier League two ye...

Mourinho – Finishing above Arsenal should not be enough for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has stated that the club has to aim higher than finishing above Arsenal, although the feat is always a thing of pride amongst supporters. Well, if you ask for an opinion, I would say this is Mourinho just trying to divert attention from the fact that he hasn't really hit the ground running as Spurs boss and has been average at best. That's my opinion. The North London derby on Sunday saw Spurs come from behind to beat Arsenal 2:1 with the winner coming through a Toby Alderweireld header in the 81st minute. The result pushed Spurs to 8th on the log and two points above Arsenal with three games to go. The opener came through Alexandre Lacazette early in the first half although it didn't last long as Sead Kolasinac assumed the role of a villain...

Mourinho fumes at FA after Dier is handed four-match ban

Jose Mourinho has lashed out at those in power for being out of touch with the game after Spurs defender Eric Dier was hit with a four-match ban by the Football Association. The Three Lions star was also fined £40,000 for climbing into the stands to confront an abusive fan after an FA Cup defeat to Norwich in March, in an altercation that involved Dier's brother. Dier's behavior was subsequently ruled as 'objectively threatening' without any intention of protecting his brother. Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said: “My feeling is that in the majority of the cases, football is not protected by the people that are powerful and doesn’t belong to this world. “That’s simply my feeling. Powerful people – that doesn’t belong to the tribe. And they don’t have the feelings. READ: Real Madri...

Tottenham not willing to sell Ndombele in the summer

Regardless, Spurs are not prepared to let him leave on loan or permanently when the summer transfer window reopens. The 23-year-old joined the North London outfit last summer for a club-record deal of £55million plus add-ons from Lyon.

Fabregas names best managers he’s worked with, excludes Guardiola

Cesc Fabregas has excluded Pep Guardiola from the list of the best managers he's worked with, although the likes of Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger made the cut. The Spaniard rose to the limelight at Arsenal under Arsene Wenger after leaving Barcelona's La Masia as a 16-year-old. He returned to Barcelona in 2011 in a deal worth £35million. On his return to the Camp Nou under Guardiola, he was offered his preferred no.4 shirt and impressed alongside Lionel Messi, scoring 10 goals and providing 9 assists in the 2011/12 campaign. Despite his contribution to the side, he became a bit-part player under Guardiola in subsequent seasons before moving to Chelsea in 2014 under the management of Jose Mourinho. He excelled at Chelsea by winning two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, and a League...

Redknapp – Jose has a big job to do at Spurs in the summer

Harry Redknapp believes that Jose Mourinho has a big job to do in the summer to change Tottenham Hotspur's fortunes. The Londoners were eliminated from the UCL by Leipzig on a 4:0 aggregate scoreline after losing 3 nil in the second leg in Germany, taking their winless run to six games. They are also 7 points off the top 4 places and were recently knocked out of the FA Cup by Norwich. Redknapp who managed the club between 2008 and 2012 in a chat with Sky Sports said: "They've got a bit of work to do to get back to where they were a few years ago.

Nagelsmann – Spurs vs Leipzig not Mourinho against Baby Mourinho

RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsman has insisted that it won't be a case of Mourinho versus Baby Mourinho when his side faces Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 fixture in London on Wednesday. Nagelsmann has been previously tagged Baby Mourinho in Germany and will be taking charge of his first maiden UCL knockout game. However, the 32-year-old who is the youngest coach in the Champions League was quick to shift focus from the battle of wits in the dugout in his pre-match press conference. He said: "It is only a game between Leipzig and Tottenham. Eight years ago, Tim Wiese [former Hoffenheim goalkeeper] called me Baby Mourinho, but that was only for two weeks. After that, he called me Julian again. "Tomorrow it is Leipzig ...
