Tottenham’s Ryan Sessegnon eager to grab his chance against Bayern

Guardian - tir, 10/12/2019 - 23:30

The 19-year old has had a frustrating start to life at Spurs but is set to feature at the Allianz Arena

Ryan Sessegnon has had to wait. Not just for his transfer to Tottenham, which was years in the making, but for the moment when he steps out as a part of the London club’s starting line-up. At last it is now upon him.

The 19-year-old left-sided player will make his full Spurs debut at Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night, which is some stage for a bow, even if the final Group B tie is largely meaningless. The Germans are assured of their progress into the last 16 as group winners, Spurs as the runners-up.

José Mourinho forbids Tottenham’s players from watching 7-2 Bayern thrashing

Guardian - tir, 10/12/2019 - 22:17

• Spurs in Munich to face German champions
• Mourinho set to hand fringe players an opportunity

José Mourinho says he has banned his Tottenham players from watching the video nasty of their 7-2 Champions League home defeat by Bayern Munich in October, which represented one of the final cuts for his managerial predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino.

Mourinho is in Munich for Wednesday night’s return Group B fixture, although there is not the same degree of jeopardy given that both clubs have already qualified for the knock-out rounds. Bayern have suffered back-to-back Bundesliga defeats and are in turmoil as they lag seventh in their domestic division but, to Mourinho, the recent past was not a principal concern.

Football transfer rumours: Marouane Fellaini to Mourinho's Tottenham?

Guardian - man, 09/12/2019 - 10:01

Today’s fluff has a face like a magnet

According to Belgian paper la Dernière Heure, José Mourinho has identified a Belgian player who would be an ideal recruit for his Tottenham revolution – and it’s Marouane Fellaini. Apparently after playing for Shandong Luneng Taishan in their defeat to Shanghai Shenhua in Friday’s China Cup final second leg, the elbow-swinging midfielder “received a call that would have been a balm to his heart” – from Mourinho himself. “The Portuguese coach would like to bring our compatriot back to the Premier League,” they write, “and has made the move a priority for his first transfer window at Tottenham, particularly given that there is nobody currently at the club with a similar profile … This is the beginning of what could be the great drama of this winter window.” They go so far as to describe Fellaini as “Mourinho’s special one”, though whether Spurs fans will view the 31-year-old’s potential arrival quite so tenderly remains to be seen.

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Guardian - man, 09/12/2019 - 09:23

Aston Villa need more firepower, Tottenham’s front four are flying again and Manchester City have fallen behind

The difference between finishing 17th and 18th in the Premier League is often a striker who can score 10 goals a season. Aston Villa’s line is being led by Wesley, a £22m summer signing from Club Brugge. Thus far he has scored four goals in 16 Premier League appearances, the last coming more than two months ago. There is no doubting the Brazilian is short of confidence, not troubling Kasper Schmeichel on Sunday, but his hold-up play and lack of physicality must be a concern for Dean Smith whose reserve, Jonathan Kodjia, was deemed not worthy of replacing Wesley in Villa’s thrashing. Admittedly, Leicester’s defence is the best in the league but Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu barely broke sweat. January is fast approaching and Smith will have to do some business to avoid the drop. Do nothing and Villa’s fate could be sealed quickly. Will Unwin
