Spurs did City style to change Klopp’s plan ahead of saturday’s clash

Tottenham did Manchester City’s trick of pulling out of the international break when Dele Alli claimed he had injury which was reported to be minor.

According to The Three Lions manager before the match:

“Alli has just had a minor strain and should be fine for his club at the weekend I would think, but Tuesday’s game will come too quickly,” Southgate said.”

City side already lost Kelvin De Bruyne who was the pivot man in Pep Guardiola’s first XI last season. To avoid more injury worries, Raheem Sterling took excuse and was exempted from the national team.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side already have some issue to deal with, but they will be happy to see a backup player like Lucas Maura who is in great form this season.

Perhaps, this would be regarded as a tactical means of changing Klopp’s plans on how to approach the game on Saturday

While England was planning to face Switzerland on Tuesday, captain Harry Kane was left out but only Eric Dier and Danny Rose was used; the boss will be thankful to see the reduced risk of using all his teams.

It will be fair to say that Alli will surely play against Liverpool at Wembley Stadium.

Liverpool will, however, be worried to have both Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren on the injury list but they’ve not been the main pivot of the team.

mesut ozil

Former Arsenal star and Skysports pundit Charlie Nicholas has admitted that Arsenal could partway with Mesut Ozil in January, should the player fail to improve his performance with the North London club.

The Sky Sports pundits claimed the German international hasn’t been in fine form for the team since the start of the campaign and he could be sold out to either Manchester United or any Chinese Super League club who are ready to spend big on the player’s signature.

While analyzing the player’s performance against Everton yesterday, Nicholas said he won’t be surprised if the Gunners couldn’t keep the player beyond this season due to his recent uninspiring displays for the team.

Though the player played a major role in the play up that led to Aubameyang’s goal, Nicholas said the 29-year-old was far from convincing at the right flank of attack.

According to him, Turkish giants Fenerbahce are interested in his service, they might make a huge money offer to the Gunners for his signature in January.

United are also said to be monitoring the German’s situation at the Emirates Stadium as Mourinho is hoping to reunite with him at Old Trafford in the second half of the season.

Ozil has played five Premier League matches this season, scoring a goal and assisting once. He was equally on target against Vorskla in the Champions League last week to help his team to a 4-2 victory against the Ukrainian side.

Mourinho

Mourinho’s future is up for discussion yet again, after his side’s awful performance in their draw against Jorge Mendes Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Red Devils have enjoyed mixed fortunes this season having recorded three wins, two defeats and one draw so far.

Last month, reports claimed that the Portuguese manager could be shown the exit door before the end of the month.

However, the Red Devils board members reportedly decide to continue working with the former Chelsea boss as he recorded a four straight win, including a 3-0 victory over Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League competition.

With Saturday’s result, United are eight points behind League leaders Liverpool and Josep Casanovas – who works for Spanish media outlet Sports – believes the end of Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford is closer than ever.

The reporters claimed that the Portuguese manager deploys outdated tactics and his players are not happy with him.

Casanovas also claimed that United’s dressing room is not friendly as there are division among the players.

Mourinho is a manager who knows what he wants from his players but results aren’t coming his way and that might make him lose his job before the end of this year, just as predicted by bookmakers last month.

In other United news, Mourinho might give youngsters the chance to prove their qualities when they battle Derby County in Carabao fixture on Wednesday.

Scott McTominay, Tahith Chong could be in the team’s starting lineup against Lampard’s Championship side.

Rennes winger Ismaila Sarr is reportedly attracting interest from Arsenal as Unai Emery begins plans for the January transfer window.

According to the Mirror, Unai Emery is impressed with the youngster’s display at the Mundial and he’s ready to make an offer for his signature.

Sarr is turning heads in the French Ligue 1 with Rennes so far this season, having scored two goals in six matches.

He also scored an eye-catching thunderbolt last week in the Europa League fixture when he released a long-range effort that went straight into the top corner against Jablonec.

The British publication also claimed that the youngster is set to cost the North London outfits nothing less than £20m.

Rennes have placed a price tag on Sarr’s signature and the Ligue 1 side are looking at the prospect of earning £20m from his sale.

In other Arsenal news, Unai Emery is set to rotate his starting XI when his side tackles Brentford on Wednesday.

It’s believed that the former Sevilla boss will deploy Bernd Leno in goal as the former Bayer Leverkusen goalie would be making his second competitive appearances for the team.

Lucas Torreira

Arsenal manager Unai Emery often start Granit Xhaka alongside Matteo Guendouzi in the opening matches of the season but both players didn’t gel together as one performs brilliantly than the others.

Matteo Guendouzi, was awesome against Chelsea and Manchester City while Switzerland star Granit Xhaka wasn’t near any perfect.

However, after the two opening fixtures, Unai Emery would introduce summer signing Lucas Torreira – to partner Xhaka – in the second half of every match and the combination looks awesome.

After the Uruguayan’s fine performances coming from the bench, Emery finally gave the 22-year-old midfielder the opportunity to start against Everton yesterday, paring Granit Xhaka at the middle of the pitch.

The combination was awesome throughout the game as they seem to understand each other. Despite being under intense pressure from Everton’s strikers in the opening 45 minutes, the pair stood their ground and helped the team get their first clean sheet of the season.

Meanwhile, former United player Phil Neville has praised the two players for the understanding between them.

The England’s female national team coach told Sky Sports that Torreira brings out the best out of much-criticised Granit Xhaka.

“The thing with Torreira is, he actually makes Xhaka play well,” Neville told Sky Sports

Just like Neville, former Arsenal player Martin Keown admits Torreira has been the source of inspiration to Xhaka and both players covered each other’s back during their victory over the Merseyside club.
