Mourinho tries to avoid discussing Kane but bemoans lack of strikers

Guardian - fre, 10/01/2020 - 23:30

Spurs manager says his team ‘cannot play like we normally play’ without talismanic striker, who has been ruled out until April

José Mourinho did not want to speak about Harry Kane. The pain of losing his talismanic striker to a hamstring rupture until April was too raw. “If I speak too much, I get depressed,” the Tottenham manager said. “And then you say I’m miserable and in a bad mood. It’s better to speak about things that make me laugh.”

Mourinho wanted to present an image of radiant positivity as he sat down to preview the visit of the Premier League’s runaway leaders, Liverpool, in the Saturday’s teatime kick-off. He was shaved and nicely coiffured, looking good. How was he feeling, one reporter asked. “Amazing,” he replied, flashing a full-beam smile.

Tottenham v Liverpool: match preview

Guardian - fre, 10/01/2020 - 17:40

Sky Sports would have you believe this is an identical scenario to the one in late April 2014 when José Mourinho took his Chelsea side to Anfield, Steven Gerrard slipped, Demba Ba scored and Liverpool were beaten 2-0 and thus blew their chances of ending their long wait for a Premier League title. This time the game is not at Anfield, Liverpool have the small matter of a 13-point lead and 18 games still to play but, well, there’s the narrative and Mourinho will not be shy of running with it. Despite his depleted Tottenham squad the Portuguese will indeed be desperate to inflict a first defeat of the season on Jürgen Klopp’s seemingly unstoppable side, as will his players who – lest we forget – lost a Champions League final to Liverpool fewer than eight months ago and were only beaten in the reverse fixture at Anfield in October by a controversial late penalty.

Football transfer rumours: Fellaini to be denied reunion with Moyes?

Guardian - fre, 10/01/2020 - 09:49

This fluff knows what it likes

When you think about it, it’s a glaringly obvious transfer link-up. Marouane Fellaini and David Moyes, the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton of the English Premier League, hooking up for a third time. With Moysey getting his feet under the table at West Ham and ‘Big Felly’, as his old Everton and Manchester United boss calls him, facing a 75% paycut at Shandong Luneng due to new regulations in China, it looks a match remade in heaven. Except, except, others in the know suggest that the Hammers have no interest in the king of chest control. That’s the thing about transfer rumours, they can’t always come true, no matter how much you might want them to.

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Guardian - fre, 10/01/2020 - 01:01

Odds are against depleted Spurs, Everton need to respond after their derby woe while Solskjær is feeling the heat again

José Mourinho’s life in football can be measured out in vendettas. There are two clubs he reserves a special enmity for, and for much the same reason. Both Barcelona and Liverpool passed over his services, choosing instead to turn to Pep Guardiola and Rafa Benítez, by little consequence two managers he has most enjoyed getting the better of. Only recently arrived at Tottenham, his latest club are near powerless to stop Liverpool’s procession to the Premier League title, save for performing the unlikely act of ending the leaders’ unbeaten run. To do so would be one of the shocks of the season. Where Liverpool have suffered a fair share of injuries, with James Milner’s muscle injury adding to a shortfall in midfield, Tottenham are completely riven, with Moussa Sissoko out until April and Tanguy Ndombele succumbed to a hip injury that in the words of Mourinho offers “no continuity in his development”. And, crucially, there will be no Harry Kane, a huge loss for a manager with such a tactical reliance on centre-forwards, and no obvious replacement within a squad he already appears dissatisfied with.
