How Spurs could line up vs Bayern with Alli out of favour and Kane on fire

first_imgMAURICIO POCHETTINO is set to name an unchanged XI for Tottenham’s game with Bayern Munich tonight.The North London club came away from Saturday’s win over Southampton with no new injury worries.3Only Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon remain unavailable, allowing Poch the luxury of picking his side on merit.And despite picking up a red card on the weekend, Serge Aurier is likely to start given his ban only applies to domestic fixtures.With Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura therefore consigned to the bench, Spurs are set to start in either a 4-2-3-1 formation or a diamond given the lack of natural width in the line-up.A goal against the Saints underwrote Tanguy Ndombele’s solid start to life in the capital and he should line up with Moussa Sissoko and the indispensable Harry Winks in midfield.A similar tag could be applied to Harry Kane who has once again found form to hit three goals in his last three outings.On the hand, Dele Alli appears far from indespensible. The England international is out of favour and yet to start in the Premier League having begun the campaign with a hamstring problem.NEITHER HER NOR THERE3Lucas Hernandez appears to have won his race to be fit but still has to beat David Alaba to start at left-back for Bayern.Likewise, Ivan Perisic should also shrug off a niggle to play some part.Given former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry’s great form down the wing, the Croatian’s most likely route to game time on Tuesday night is off the bench.Latest Football newsSILVA’S GOLDEN GIRLModel Ines Tomaz has been helping Bernardo Silva through quarantineGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleDefinitely out for Munich are Leon Goretzka and Fiete Arp as the visitors prepare to name their settled backline of Benjamin Pavard, Niklas Sule and Jerome Boateng.Another ex-Prem star, Philippe Coutinho, should play down the middle with Robert Lewandowski up top.A cruising 3-0 win over Red Star Belgrade last month set Bayern up well for tonight’s 8pm kick-off while Spurs can probably kiss first-place in Group B goodbye if they lose, having already dropped points in the 2-2 draw at Olympiacos.3LADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict West Ham vs Palace, Saints vs Chelsea and Newcastle vs Man Utd scores this weekend and win £100Spurs stars fume at Mauricio Pochettino’s ‘agenda’ claims after Colchester humiliationlast_img read more

Jose Mourinho is a serial winner and I’m sure he will evolve at Tottenham

first_imgSITTING nine points off Chelsea in fourth, it’s going to be a huge ask for Jose Mourinho to get Tottenham into the  Champions League places.But with 25 games to go it is certainly not a task that is impossible.3 Alan Shearer has backed Jose Mourinho to be a hit at SpursCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdMourinho is a serial winner and I’m convinced he will win trophies at Spurs, whose last piece of  silverware was the League Cup back in 2008.While they obviously won’t win the title this campaign, I would not put it past him winning a trophy and potentially challenging for the league next season if he can strengthen his squad.It’s a bold decision to bring him in but one that will bring success.He will have to change, though, because the Jose we have seen at his last three clubs has fallen  out with players and lost the dressing room.He took them on and lost and ended up out of a job because  of it.Having had 11 months out of the cut and thrust of management he will have reflected on what went right and what went wrong.And the one thing he will have looked back at and learned from is that you just cannot take  players on any more.Yes, you can be ruthless, hard and honest with them.3But when you take on five or six players in a dressing room then there is only going to be  one winner.I think he can and will change. The best adapt and evolve and there is no doubt he is one of, if not the best in the business.People talk about whether he will work out well in the long term, but is there a long term in football anymore?Even Pep Guardiola in his career has picked up silverware and left clubs.The theory goes that Mourinho comes in, wins trophies, creates a mess and then gets out.That has happened in the past but I also think that’s part of moving forward and adapting, so I think he and Tottenham are a good fit.When you look at the players at his disposal it’s not as though they can’t score goals and when you have that threat you’ve always got a chance.In Harry Kane he’s got one of the best centre-forwards in the world and in Dele Alli he has an exceptional talent who is on his way back after a dip.Dele’s upturn in form started before Saturday and against West Ham — who were embarrassingly bad — he was better still.Playing behind Kane in the No 10 position he caused  problems throughout the game. The  Hammers just couldn’t get to grips with him.They didn’t know whether to get tight or not and in the end they just couldn’t handle him.When you bring the likes of Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura into the equation, Spurs have plenty of ammunition going forward.With that talent in your squad there really isn’t a lot a manager has to do in terms of setting a team up to win.With a couple of shrewd  additions in the January transfer window there is no reason why  Mourinho can’t take Spurs back to where they were at the top end  of the table under former boss Mauricio Pochettino.I was really surprised at the timing of his sacking, coming  at the back end of the latest  international break.He had done a great job and  if there was one guy with a bit  of credit in the bank then it  was him.But having said that, the players had simply stopped running for him and I felt his body language towards the end suggested he wanted it to be brought to an  end, too.While it’s sad to see him go I’m happy Mourinho is back in the Premier League.Whether you like him or loathe him he creates headlines and is a serial winner.He’s been on the front and back pages since his appointment last Wednesday and there is no doubt he will love  that.Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubHe plays the game as well as anyone and you don’t get to achieve what he has without  being savvy.He knows he needs to go in there, stroke a few egos, get one or two onside and get them  playing like they can again.If he does that, I’m pretty  confident it won’t be long before he’s got them back up the table and lifting trophies.3José Mourinho delighted loud music is pumping once more in the Spurs dressing roomlast_img read more

Carter racing to be fit for French semis

first_imgCarter missed Racing’s 15-12 defeat to Leinster in Bilbao due to a hamstring injury but could be fit to face either Toulouse or Castres in Lyon on May 26 in the Top 14 semi-final, according to backs coach Laurent Labit.If not available in two weeks’ time, Carter, who will leave the French side for Kobelco Steelers in Japan at the season’s end, is “sure” to be fit for the June 3 final in Paris, Labit said.Ireland international lock Donnacha Ryan, who injured a shoulder against Leinster, is likewise facing a race against time for the Top 14 semi-final but looks otherwise certain to return to full fitness ahead of the final.However, the news on South Africa international fly-half Pat Lambie is not so good.Lambie is waiting to see a specialist to find out if he has ruptured his cruciate knee ligaments, an injury that forced him off the field against Leinster after just three minutes of Saturday’s European Champions Cup final.Lambie himself said after the match he thought his season was over.Racing are already without France scrum-half Maxime Machenaud, full-back Brice Dulin — both of whom have ruptured cruciate knee ligaments — and hooker Dimitri Szarzewski, who has a biceps injury.Racing have a bye into the Top 14 semi-finals after finishing in the top two in the regular season, alongside table-toppers Montpellier.This weekend Toulouse take on Castres and Toulon play Lyon for the final two places in the semi-finals.last_img read more

first_imgThe Barras are currently third on the ladder. Patel said a win in the Barras’ last game could propel them into second spot or even top of the ladder.  “The Barramundis’ performances of late in the SACA league have been very encouraging in the development of young players, senior players consistently performing and most importantly getting a number of wins, “ said Patel. “I can honestly say the Barramundis have improved from their performances in Ireland.

Brazilian police arrest 10 suspected of planning terrorist acts during Olympics

first_imgThe group was inspired by ISIS and mostly organized online, Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes said.He said no specific targets were mentioned, but the Justice Ministry is still investigating the suspects’ computers and cell phones to learn more about the possible plans.De Moraes said the suspects are all Brazilian nationals, and that one minor was mentioned in the conversations.Another two people have warrants out for their arrests. Authorities said they believe those suspects will be arrested soon.Read MoreDe Moraes said the group was not an organized cell, calling it “absolutely amateur — with no preparation.”The group essentially said, “Let’s start training in martial arts, let’s start learning how to shoot,” the justice minister said.He noted the group tried to buy a gun online, which no organized cell would do.Raffaello Pantucci, director of international security studies at the Royal United Services Institute, said there doesn’t appear to be evidence of a sophisticated plot.But Brazil has grappled with a host of threats against the Rio Olympics, now just 15 days away.This week, Brazil’s intelligence agency said it was reviewing all threats after a jihadi messaging channel called for its followers to target the Olympics, which start August 5.”Many (threats) are discarded and the ones that deserve attention are investigated exhaustively,” the agency said.Earlier this week, a jihadi channel on the messaging app Telegram called for attacks against the games and detailed targets and methods, according to the SITE Intelligence Group.SITE said a message was posted to “Inspire the Believers!” saying, “Lone wolf from anywhere in the world can move to Brazil now.”The message also suggested using the games to target the enemies of jihad, including Western athletes.But Brazil has vowed it will be ready to handle any terror attempt.A Western diplomat said venues for the games have been “hardened significantly — and I believe the government of Brazil has done what it can to make it very difficult to get into the venues here.”Brazilian forces have been working with French SWAT teams to simulate attack scenarios. In one drill, Brazil special forces and a police dog chase down an armed gunman to thwart a possible attack on Rio’s subway system.”There is not a specific threat,” Lt. Gen. Luiz Linhares of Brazil’s Ministry of Defense said. “You have to screen for a great (spectrum) of threat.”last_img read more
