Southampton’s Danny Ings sinks Tottenham and Harry Kane limps off

Just when a disappointing afternoon for Tottenham ostensibly could not get any worse, Harry Kane limped off down the tunnel 15 minutes from time clutching his left hamstring, with Spurs succumbing to the fourth league defeat of José Mourinho’s reign after another powder-puff performance.

It was at that point Mourinho, irked by his side’s flimsy display and Kane joining the £55m record signing Tanguy Ndombele in prematurely trudging down the tunnel, decided to take matters into his own hands, wandering over to the Southampton dugout to insult the goalkeeping coach, Andrew Sparkes – an act of petulance that earned him a booking from the referee, Mike Dean.

Football transfer rumours: Moussa Dembélé to join Chelsea's strikeforce?

Guardian - ons, 01/01/2020 - 09:31

This fluff began with a damp firework display

If a transfer window can slam shut then it can also spring open. There’s no such thing as New Year’s Day signalling a dry January in the heady world of football transfers. This is where the party starts for 31 days of signing-on fees, yellow tickers and term sheets with agents and ITKs hammering the WhatsApp like thunder.

Now that the revoking of Chelsea’s transfer ban means he is able to open Roman Abramovich’s cheque book, Frank Lampard fancies rolling back the years to the club’s glory days and spending like Viv Nicholson. Frank sees Moussa Dembélé – once of Fulham and Celtic, now of Lyon – as a potential new Didier Drogba, which may be bad news for Tammy Abraham. Another option as a forward is the CSKA Moscow striker Fyodor Chalov who would cost around £20m.

José Mourinho hints at Tottenham style change if defensive slips continue

Guardian - tir, 31/12/2019 - 23:30
• Manager also demands improvement in away performances
• ‘The problem is the way we concede and the way we play’

José Mourinho has challenged his Tottenham players to improve their away form and has hinted that he may be forced to change his team’s style of play if they do not stop conceding “ridiculous” goals.

Tottenham travel to St Mary’s on New Year’s Day to face a Southampton side who have clawed their way out of the relegation zone with seven points from three matches over the Christmas period. Mourinho’s men, meanwhile, have lost to Chelsea and dropped unlikely points at Carrow Road in a 2-2 draw.

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

Guardian - man, 30/12/2019 - 09:28
Lamptey may not last long at Chelsea, Leicester can be regular title contenders and have Pereira and Ndombele finally arrived?

Welcome to the Premier League, then, Tariq Lamptey. And – quite possibly – farewell. For the 19-year-old right-back, the Emirates Stadium was some place to make a professional debut. He rose to the challenge, keeping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang quiet and making one thrilling foray into Arsenal territory before playing in Tammy Abraham. It says plenty about Chelsea’s short-term youth policy that Lampard felt able to throw an untried teenager into a game of this magnitude. It says plenty about Chelsea’s long-term youth policy that they may not be able to keep him. Lamptey’s contract is up at the end of the season, and Paris Saint-Germain are ready to pounce. “Hopefully he feels a bit of love,” Lampard said afterwards. The question, with three right-backs ahead of him and time running out, is whether it will be enough. Jonathan Liew
