Jack Grealish is a reported target for Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham. The £40m-rated Aston Villa man could not help his side make it to the Premier League after a play-off final loss and has been linked with a move away from Villa Park.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to London and while reports claim that we are trying to bring him in on the cheap, the English midfielder is seemingly doing his bit on Instagram.
The midfielder was one of the few to comment on an image shared by Josh Onomah. The Spurs youngster was on loan at Villa last season and Grealish commented on the photo by saying “my brother”. And even Onomah called Grealish his “bro”.
Grealish is one of the brightest English players around and though he might not start every game for us, bringing him in makes sense since Mauricio Pochettino is known to work wonders with young players.
The Englishman scored 3 times and provided 6 assists for the Villains last season in 30 Championship games. The 22-year-old might be sold in the summer given the financial mess that Villa are in and that can only mean good news for us as Daniel Levy would run the rule over the Villans.
Hopefully, this is a start of good things to come for Grealish and Spurs, as we look to close down this transfer soon.
Wanyama and Trippier to start: Predicted Tottenham XI to face Brighton & Hove Albion
Tottenham return to Premier League action after a poor Champions League opener. Losing to Inter Milan in the last seconds of the game was a big blow to a side that had already been defeated twice this season.
Spurs dominated the game against Inter but were left to rue a few missed chances. Harry Kane looked tired while some of the other players should have done better.
Tottenham are already six points behind the leaders in the Premier League and have to get back to winning ways. However, facing Brighton away from home will not be easy.
Spurs have some decisions to make regarding their starting XI and here is our predicted team to face Brighton.
Predicted Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Michel Vorm (GK)
Vorm has struggled in recent games but he should keep his place, given that he didn’t make major mistakes in the 2-1 loss at Inter.
Danny Rose (LB)
The Englishman received a few minutes at San Siro but should start in place of Ben Davies as our left-back.
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
Alderweireld wasn’t taken to Milan and should start in a back four against Brighton.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Vertonghen is one of the best defenders in the league and should start this game. The Belgian has to put up a great showing as we must aim to keep a clean sheet.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
Another player who did not travel to Milan, Trippier must play against the Seagulls.
Victor Wanyama (CM)
We need more steel in the midfield and Wanyama has to start in place of Eric Dier, who has struggled in the last three games.
Christian Eriksen (CM)
Eriksen got the only goal for us against Inter and his passing could be key to unlocking the Brighton defence.
Mousa Dembele (CM)
Dembele should be the third player in our midfield as we must control the middle of the park.
Son Heung-min (RW)
We could see Son play a more attacking role in the team and support Kane from the right-wing.
Lucas Moura (LW)
Moura’s form has deserted him since the win over Manchester United but we could see the Brazilian starting out-wide.
Harry Kane (ST)
We don’t have a lot of options up front and Kane must be started.
Tottenham deny reports claiming stadium will be ready only by 2019
Construction News reported that the stadium would be complete only by the first week of January. The report quoted an insider claiming that Spurs could play their home games at other grounds for the rest of the season.
Speaking to Sky Sports, however, a Tottenham spokesperson said:
“We have always said that we would issue updates for test events and official opening as soon as we have confidence in our project managers’ and contractors’ ability to deliver against the revised scheduled of works.
“This remains the case and speculating on unsupported dates such as this is irresponsible.”
Tottenham haven’t shared a date as to when our home will be ready. The delay in moving to our new stadium has been due to safety concerns. And we will play a number of our Premier League home fixtures at Wembley too.
The report adds that Wembley would be the venue for our Champions League group home games. The Carabao Cup game against Watford would be played at Stadium MK since Wembley is not available for that date.
Tottenham had earlier set 15th September as the inaugural date but we are no closer to knowing when our home will be ready.
“Don’t tweet for a few days”, “Now we know why he didn’t travel to Milan” – Some Spurs fans upset with birthday tweet
Tottenham have struggled in recent weeks and the loss against Inter Milan was the latest blow. Spurs were leading till the 85th minute before two blows from the Italians cost us three points.
A winning start to the Champions League would have been, great given that we didn’t travel with a couple of our stars.
Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier were left in London. The duo participated in our losses against Watford and Liverpool but didn’t travel due to a “technical decision,” as per Mauricio Pochettino.
The Spurs account tried to lift the mood by wishing the Englishman on his birthday but that didn’t go as planned.

A few Tottenham supporters were upset with the recent results and let rip on Twitter. Trippier has had a fantastic six months or so, especially during the World Cup, but that didn’t stop some fans from having a go.
You’ll probably stop him from celebrating his birthday for technical reasons

Don’t tweet for a few days, still angry at you

Hope you got a cure for your technical issue

Yes “technically “ 😉

That’s why they left him at home, had a party organised
— Gareth McCarter (@g2mcc) September 19, 2018
Ah now we know why he didn’t travel to Milan, sounds like he didn’t wanna miss his birthday cake 🎂
— Conor Terry (@ConorTerry1) September 19, 2018
Yesterday’s loss to Inter Milan was just the perfect Birthday gift for him.
