Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate is set to have his future decided in the coming days.

The former Leeds centre-back has been dogged by a niggling groin injury and has only mustered a total of 31 minutes worth of first team football in the past 15 months.

Spurs are pondering a pay-as-you-play deal for the 31 year old.

Woodgate, however, claims his injury problems are behind him and he is ready to re-ignite his career at White Hart Lane.

UEFA to investigate how more than 200 Red Star fans made it to Tottenham’s Champions League clash

UEFA to investigate how Red Star supporters bought tickets for Champions League game

Tottenham kick-started their Champions League campaign after a couple of poor results. Spurs had only one point from the opening two games but destroyed Red Star Belgrade at home 5-0.

Erik Lamela got one goal while Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scored braces as we put up a great display.

However, UEFA will investigate how Red Star fans were able to get tickets for the game (h/t Evening Standard).

The Serbian fans were banned from attending this clash after being found guilty of racism in previous games, but the report claims that more than 200 of them were able to make their way into the ground.

Police and stewards had to contain the fans and Tottenham were responsible for the ticket sales and segregation of the supporters.

The home side could face sanctions from UEFA unless they can prove they tried not to sell tickets to the wrong fans.

The report adds that Tottenham did not put the Champions League tickets on general sale to avoid them ending up with the Red Star fans. A spokesperson added that Tottenham had launched their own investigation into the issue and action could be taken against the guilty (h/t Evening Standard):

“We have launched a full investigation in order to understand how tickets have been acquired. We shall take the strongest possible action against any individual found to have sold their ticket on.”

There weren’t any major issues during the game but this is a concern given that the tickets weren’t put out for general sale either.

Tottenham needed a good win

Spurs had been struggling for most of the season and this win should give us more confidence. Our next game is far from an easy one as we travel to Merseyside and face Liverpool.

The Reds dropped points against Manchester United on Sunday and if we play to our best ability, we should get something from Anfield.

Good news as Tottenham are uninterested in sacking Pochettino despite poor start to the season

Tottenham are unwilling to sack Mauricio Pochettino despite poor start to season

Mauricio Pochettino has seen Tottenham struggle this season in all competitions. We have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and have just one point from the opening two Champions League group games.

Our Premier League campaign has been below par and we needed a late Dele Alli goal to salvage a point against Watford at the weekend.

The Argentine acknowledged that he is under pressure and hinted that he could lose his job too (h/t Express):

“If we don’t improve our performances and results, what is going to be the result? It’s always the same in football.”

However, the Express claims that Tottenham have no desire to fire the Argentine after he improved the side.

Pochettino has made us regulars in the Champions League and we reached the final of the competition last campaign. Spurs also handed the manager a five-year deal in 2018 and he is one of the best in the game too.

The right decision for now by Spurs

Sacking Poch now makes no sense given the amount of work he has done with the club and turning us into a quality side.

This is his first set of poor results since Pochettino’s arrival, and he has the ability to turn things around. Some of our stars can leave for free in the summer while others have missed parts of the season due to injury.

It will be interesting to see how we perform in the coming weeks, with trips to Anfield and Goodison awaiting us.

Tottenham could see summer signing against Red Star after two months absence due to injury

Giovani Lo Celso could feature against Red Star Belgrade

Tottenham could see the return of Giovani Lo Celso against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League, according to Sky Sports.

The summer signing made a few substitute appearances this season before a hip injury took him out of the side.

The 23-year-old hasn’t played since the previous international break, but his return could be timely for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Tottenham have one point from their opening two Champions League games and have to beat Red Star to kick-start their campaign.

Spurs have looked off-colour this season but Lo Celso’s return could get the team going again. The 23-year-old was impressive for Real Betis last campaign and is seen as a long-term replacement for Christian Eriksen (h/t Sky Sports).

The youngster scored 14 goals and provided 5 assists for Betis last season and even played in the Copa America for Argentina.

Sessegnon not close to making debut

The other summer signing yet to start for us, Ryan Sessegnon, is still not ready for his debut (h/t Sky Sports).

The former Fulham star injured his hamstring for England’s youth team and might need a run in the U23s before getting first-team action (h/t Sky Sports).

A further delay will be frustrating for Sessegnon, who was one of the most talented players in the Championship.

His time with Fulham in the Premier League didn’t go too well, with the Cottagers getting relegated. Hopefully, he recovers from his problem soon and we get to see him in action.

“We’ve been working hard” – Tottenham star laughs off claims that players are being trained too much

Harry Kane laughs off speculation that Tottenham’s stars are being trained too hard

Tottenham face a must-win game against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Tuesday. Spurs have just one point from their opening two group games, and things haven’t been that great for us in the Premier League either.

We fought hard to draw against Watford on Saturday after coming back from a goal down but Harry Kane was in a positive state of mind ahead of the midweek clash.

The Englishman wanted the team to stick together and believed that a win over Red Star could kick-start the season.

The England captain was also asked if the players were being trained a little too hard, but Kane just laughed off the matter (h/t Football.london):

“(Laughs) There’s going to be speculation when things aren’t going well. We’ve been working hard since the manager came here and it would be wrong for us to do more or less than we’ve always done.”

The forward added that this was the “toughest time” for him at the club but claimed this was just a part of the journey:

“It’s just another challenge though. The road to success will always have bumps and this is just one of them.”

Kane needs to fire against Red Star

The English forward is one of the best in the world but needs to do better in front of goal.

The 25-year-old hasn’t scored in the last two games for us, but that could change if he starts on Tuesday.
