Tottenham Hotspurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has apologized to the fans after his team was thrashed by Newcastle on the final day of the season.
The result means that they lose second place to their bitter rivals Arsenal.
Given that Tottenham Hotspurs had a much better goal difference than Arsenal, a draw would have been enough to secure the second place, but they ended up being well beaten by a team that was already relegated. And worst of all, Newcastle played some part of the game with only ten men after the sending off of AleksandarMitrovic.
Mauricio Pochettino has conceded that his team was not good on the day and that they did not show any intensity in their game. He said that he will do everything he can so that the same mistake does not happen again next season.
Tottenham Hotspurs were at some point of the campaign genuine title contenders but their season faltered in the 4 last matches of the campaign and they find themselves finishing the season 12 points behind Champions Leicester City. Read more »
The Lily Whites would face English Premier League giants, Manchester United, in a crucial match for the team. Tottenham has had an impressive campaign this season as they sit in second place with 62 points from 32 games.
The team will trade tackles with The Red Devils this Sunday. After facing lots of injury worries, Tottenham would appreciate a boost as Erik Lamela is likely to be available for the must-win match to keep their EPL title hopes alive. Lamela missed the last match against Liverpool which ended in a draw.
Leicester City leads Tottenham with seven points. With six matches left, the clash with Manchester United is the title decider. With Leicester City playing 18th-placed Sunderland on Sunday, if The Spurs lose and let the points’ difference move up to ten points, if Leicester City defeats Sunderland, then the EPL title is good as won.
Jan Vertonghen is poised to return to the team after missing three months due to a knee injury he picked up. The defender will surely be a big boost to the squad as they host The Red Devils. Read more »
Manchester United is believed to have launched an offer of around €190 million for Barcelona’s Neymar as the Premier League club is willing to go deep in their pockets and sign someone who can play alongside Wayne Rooney and start scoring goals for the English outfit which has recently been struggling trying to score goals on a consistent basis.
Louis van Gaal lost his chance to sign Pedro as Chelsea arrived and snatched him up which has already proven to be a transfer which has given Jose Mourinho positive results as Pedro almost single handedly collected all 3 points for Chelsea in his debut match when Chelsea faced off with West Bromwich Albion and claimed a 3-2 triumph.
Gareth Bale’s transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to the Santiago Bernabeu came at a hefty fee for Real Madrid as they had to pay €100 million in order to sign the Welshman but if this transfer does indeed follow through and Manchester United offloads €190 million, it would turn Neymar into the most expensive transfer in the history of football.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reckons that striker Harry Kane needs to be even better next season if he is to continue his progress.
The England international has enjoyed an amazing 10 months at White Hart Lane. After being on the verge of being loaned out to yet another lower division club, Tim Sherwood gave the striker an amazing opportunity and he has grabbed it with both hands. Pochettino took a lot of time before having the confidence to use the player in the league, but he was rewarded immensely after Kane scored 30 goals in all competitions before managing to win the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Pochettino says that Kane needs to perform next season as well if he is to prove his critics that this season was not a flash in the pan. However, the 21-year-old will face a lot of challenges in order to do so. His opposition will be much more wiser when it comes to dealing with him during the game. Further, he will also be required to return much quicker than scheduled if Tottenham qualify for the Europa League. The lack of rest could be worsened because of his participation in the upcoming Euro U21 Championships. Read more »
