jose mourinho

Tottenham continued their good run of form with a win over Burnley FC on Monday and in speaking to the club’s website after the game, manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his side.

Spurs made the trip to Turf Moor looking to build on their midweek Europa League success. But the win didn’t come easily, as the hosts made life difficult for the North Londoners. In the end however, a solitary goal from Heung-min Son was enough to settle the game and bring back the three points to London.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs RB Leipzig (Champions League)

sir alex old trafford man united

It was a not a pretty result, but it was a point nonetheless when Manchester United drew with Chelsea over the weekend, in a match where the Red Devils resembled the Jose Mourinho era. Yes, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, an attacker known as the “baby faced assassin” during his playing days, went with a more defensive-minded approach.

He kept Paul Pogba, the most expensive player in British history, a super-sub, and we believe he’ll do the same here against RB Leipzig. United welcome the Bundesliga side led by Julian Nagelsmann (nicknamed ‘Baby Mourinho’ by former Germany goalkeeper Tim Wiese on account of his wide-ranging tactical knowledge) to Old Trafford on Wednesday for a Champions League clash.

Manchester United Team News vs RB Leipzig (UCL): Bailly, Jones, Lingard

Manchester United split the points with Chelsea on Saturday, and some could say they were even lucky to get that point given how they definitely got away with a clear red card card. Team captain Harry Maguire somehow got away with a bearhug/headlock/ultra-aggressive challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta.

Somehow, VAR did not review the call or did and saw nothing. Well, VARchester United moves on from an ugly, tedious game to host unfeated RB Leipzig in UEFA Champions League group stage play.

Arsenal Boss Mikel Arteta Bemoans Disallowed Goal after Leicester Defeat

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta expressed his displeasure over the disallowed goal after the Gunners succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City on Sunday.

The North London club would have liked to get their Premier League season back on track after going down to Manchester City last week. But that wasn’t to be the case, as the visitors waited for their chance to hit on the counter and did just that with Jamie Vardy coming off the bench to score the game winner in the 80′.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Burnley FC

Tottenham continue their Premier League season as they visit Burnley on Monday and it is likely they could be without a key defender. So how will this affect their starting eleven?

Spurs got their Europa League group stage campaign off a great start as they emerged 3-0 winners against Austrian team LASK Linz in midweek. They have been in great form and despite drawing their last League game, the North Londoners are strongly favored to get the three points at the Turf Moor.

Tottenham at Burnley Team News: Dier, Tanganga, Bardsley, Lowton

It’s going to be the late show, or perhaps even the late late show when Tottenham Hotspur visit Burnley FC on Monday night. It’s final match of the weekend, with a late start time, and it matches up the league’s highest scoring team (Tottenham, 15 goals for, +7 goal differential) against the lowest (Burnley, 3 goals for, -5 goal differential).

Yes, Spurs have scored 5x as many as the Clarets thus far on the young season, and that’s a big reason when Burnley enters this match sitting in the drop zone. As for Spurs, they are only mid table, despite all the scoring sprees, so they have plenty of work to do as well.

Chelsea News and Notes: Pulisic, Azpilicueta, Lampard, Mendy

When it’s a goalless draw, like Manchester United and Chelsea played on Saturday, well then a goalkeeper is certainly the man of the match. An ugly, dull game, played in a steady rain, this was not aesthetically pleasing football, but it certainly provided a lot to talk about, from both perspectives.

Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy wasn’t perfect, and some of his passing left a lot to be desired, but he made a few good stops in the first half and his denying Marcus Rashford saved the game and salvaged a point for the visitors.
