Defence take the credit as smash-and-grab win hides Kane and Son’s quiet day

first_imgTOTTENHAM relied on their defence to produce a huge smash-and-grab win at Wolves on Sunday.Jan Vertonghen popped up to head the stoppage time winner having spent 90 minutes being terrorised by Adama Troare.3 Mourinho’s men produced an away day masterclass – but it could have been very differentCredit: ReutersIt was the rapid winger who netted his side’s goal at Molineux, driving in from range to level up Lucas Moura’s excellent individual effort earlier on.As Jose Mourinho’s side head up to fifth in the Premier League table, Marc Mayo rates the Spurs pack who claimed the 2-1 win.PAULO GAZZANIGA – 7The goalkeeper was rarely tested for large parts given Wolves’ propensity for shooting right at him. But, having had no chance with the goal, he produced excellent strong parries to deny Raul Jimenez and Roman Saiss in the second-half.SERGE AURIER – 6Far from the erratic display Spurs fans still fear with the right-back, his zone was largely ignored defensively as Wolves hammered Vertonghen’s left flank.DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 7Faced up to a very dangerous home attack well, making blocks and ensuring openings down the middle were never too clear-cut.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 6Part of an overall solid defence that lost its head somewhat late on, as symbolised by Alderweireld’s awful lunge for a yellow card on Traore.3 Harry Kane toiled away with little reward at MolineuxCredit: ReutersJAN VERTONGHEN – 7Thoroughly outmatched in the pace department up against Adama Traore but stood off him and defended intelligently. He was naturally powerless at times up against the winger’s sheer athleticism but had the last laugh with a well-aimed winning header.MOUSSA SISSOKO – 6The nature of the game suited the Frenchman and he came out reasonably well, keeping an eye on Wolves’ central midfielders as they operated deep and away from dangerous areas.ERIC DIER – 6An oddly active attacking performance for the anchor man, contributing the assist for Lucas and hitting the post with a daring run in the first-half.LUCAS MOURA – 6Hit his third goal in five games under Mourinho with a powerful eighth minute finish – and very little else. For a counter-attacking setup, Spurs hardly utilised his pace at all.3 Lucas Moura struck a fine eighth minute openerCredit: EPADELE ALLI – 5The midfielder was forced to drop back a bit given Spurs’ insistence on not having the ball, leading to limited moments in attack. Played a sweet chip through to Dier in the first-half but couldn’t make his mind up when through one-on-one beforehand.SON HEUNG-MIN – 5A quiet afternoon for Son who laboured in the rain and was a spectator for much of it.HARRY KANE – 4Not his sort of game with Tottenham intent on playing balls into space on the counter-attack, especially after going ahead. Hit the deck too easily on two occasions, trying to win penalties that were simply never there.latest football newsGossipCROWD 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 titleTHEIR CALLReferees in Northern Ireland will be given choice on coming back says union bossSUBS:Christian Eriksen – N/A (On for Lucas, 89)Juan Foyth – N/A (On for Alli, 90)Harry Winks – N/A (On for Son, 90)Unused: Skipp, Lo Celso, Sessegnon, WhitemanTottenham coach Jose Mourinho says everyone has the same chances in the first knockout round of the Champions Leaguelast_img read more

The reddish team stood up, but Chimy’s loss left sequels. Osasuna had a hard time generating chances from nowhere and auction, just everything Avila contributed. On the development of the meeting, he noted that “We knew it was going to be complicated, that we had to be very precise to play what we wanted and we didn’t have it. But we had work and sacrifice to match their effort and we played a very serious game.”.“Winning is very complicated, against whoever it is. All rivals have arguments to complicate you, so every game is very hard. We are fine, we are winning, but we know what it costs us. And now in the Cup it will be just as complicated “, he pointed out regarding next week’s duel against Mirandés.The technician welcomed the good dynamics of his results by pointing out that “The streak has a lot of value, each match is a final, it is very difficult to win and we have good dynamics. The team manages to win in matches like this, hard, in which you suffer and are able to recover, those victories taste more”.RazeThe Osasuna coach, Jagoba Arrasate, assured in the press conference after the defeat of his team against Villarreal (3-1) that the failures and mismatches in defense of his team sentenced the match.“They have not generated much, in their first play you give a goal and that has cost us dearly.

But in defense we have had errors and imbalances that have punished us and have sentenced the game”he assured.“The balance is negative for losing, but if you analyze it you see that you have not made a bad game. It is true that you have given facilities and if you give them to a team with this potential this happens to you. They are tolls that we are paying”sentencedRegarding the news that he presented in his headline team, the technician explained: “We have put other players for this game, people of the squad, and I think they have made a good game.

The Valencian defined how he knows. The goal was suspended because the line raised the flag. Alcácer left from his own field and the VAR considered it good. Villarreal was already amortizing the signing of Alcácer. Osasuna, as soon as he started, tied the game after a corner kick. Aridane finished off with pleasure in the second suit, before the gaze of Funes Mori. The Arrasate team was able to pull forward.

Shevchenko aims for the Milan bench next season

first_imgFor its part, Yevgueni Levchenko, Shevchenko’s partner in the national team, predicted that Shechenko will not leave the national team lying down now, but, in any case, in the future it will not combine both charges. “I can’t imagine Shevchenko rejecting Milan. I know that on the part of the Italian team there will be guarantees and large economic investments. I am sure that in the case of receiving a good offer, you will leave the selection after the European Championship. Milan must play at the highest level. Andrei is getting experience to work in a big club, “he told local press. He stressed that the Ukrainian Federation is very happy with the growth of some players under Shevchenko and the tactical varieties that he handled during the qualifying phase, and that he will have “white card” in the future, unless a catastrophe occurs in the European Championship. “I am convinced that Shevchenko is not so dumb as to leave the Ukrainian team now. Since they would never forgive him. Andrei is leading a very smart career, without making free promises. I can’t imagine Shevchenko leaving now. It would be a betrayal of the boys, the national team and the country“he pointed out.Regarding the failure of coaches that in the past they were legend in their clubs like Seedorf in Milan, Blokhin in Dinamo or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in Manchester United, alluded to other examples to follow. “There are other examples that say otherwise. For example, Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid,” he said. Shevchenko, Ballon d’Or in 2004, worked his reputation as a scorer in Dinamo Kiev (1994-1999), where he would return ten years later to retire in 2012.He played in Milan from 1999 to 2006 winning the Serie A and the Champions League, and, after two years at Chelsea, returned with the Rossoneri team in the 2008-09 season. Disciple of the legendary Valeri Lobanovski, he took over the reins of the Ukrainian team in 2016, which he could not take to the World Cup in Russia, but to the European Championship 2020 ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal. The Ukrainian coach, Andrei Shevchenko, he could train Milan, according to the Ukrainian press today, although only after the European Championship, which the Slavic team has brilliantly classified. “We know your close relationship with Paolo Maldini. But now Shevchenko is focused on preparing the Ukrainian team for the European Championship“said Igor Tsigani, a Ukrainian sports commentator.He stressed that the Italians have already decided that the current coach, Stefano Pioli, will not follow at the end of the season, but the journalist warns that Shevchenko has more than one girlfriend. “That’s why Shevchenko’s candidacy sounds. But I can say that not only Milan thinks of Shevchenko as its coach. It is in the portfolio of several clubs. Milan is one of them. Andrei has done very well with the Ukrainian team“, Explain.last_img read more
