Defensive miscues were the order of the day as an all too familiar scene played out for Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday. But they need to get over it.
We’re not ready to call it a title race in England. We’re just not. But now that it’s closer, how much pressure falls at the feet of Tottenham?
After another rousing weekend of English Premier League action (it was okay), we have some thoughts. First, on the Sunderland/Manchester United match from Sunday morning:
With Antonio Conte on the touchline, Chelsea have been a step or two ahead of everyone this season. That’s unlikely to change with the FA Cup’s final four.
With Peter Crouch hitting the 100 EPL goal milestone last week, we started thinking: who’s next? And, who else should be there within the next 2-3 years?
Tottenham’s spine last season of Lloris, Alderweireld, Dembélé and Kane have been separated by injuries often this campaign. Until now, finally.
Tuesday afternoon, Tottenham’s Champions League hopes vanished—even with a fixture to spare. Sure we could make excuses, but it’s also time we criticize.
Ever since their dominance over Manchester City, it’s all been pretty dire for Tottenham Hotspur. And now, they have Arsenal to prepare for.
These aren’t the same Spurs from just a handful of years ago. And while missing Harry Kane is undoubtedly huge, they are capable of grinding it out.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane has picked up an injury, and it’s a fairly serious one. Let’s not try to spin this as some sort of positive in the long run, okay?
For Arsenal, buying Jamie Vardy would be awfully underwhelming. But it looks like this is going to happen, so let’s take a look.
Now that Tottenham will be in the Champions League, it’s feasible that some of these ridiculous “links” could stick. Zlatan, however, isn’t one of them.
The season didn’t end on a bright note for Tottenham Hotspur, but there should be plenty to look forward to. Still, their work is far from done.
Arsenal has made a habit out of finishing top-four and qualifying for the UCL, but that’s been their peak for several years now. How can it change?
THFC were very good most of the season, but their final month painted an entirely different picture. There doesn’t have to be a silver lining right away.
This weekend is supposed to be ‘Championship Sunday’, but both the title and relegation races are over. So, what’s there to look forward to?
Under Roberto Martínez, Everton’s attack has been relentless. Defensively, they’ve been just the opposite.
