Rant of the day: Tottenham have a gem of a star and title hopes would be alive if he keeps performing

Tottenham provided another late show at Wembley, this time against Newcastle United as we kept our Premier League hopes alive.

The season has been a little inconsistent with the team dropping points against Watford and Wolverhampton, but our past three Premier League wins prove that we will not go away in the title race.

This is a Spurs team that has learned its lessons from the past. The capitulation a few years ago handed Leicester City the title, however, we will have a huge role to play in the title race.

Liverpool and Manchester City have to play Tottenham before the end of the season, and there is more than a chance of us usurping the pair come the end of the campaign.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli will return in March and will provide us with a huge boost but for now, the star seems to be Son Heung-min.

The South Korean scored the winner against the Magpies and found the back of the net in the 2-1 win over Watford recently. The former Bayer Leverkusen man has been constantly playing football since the summer, but his performances don’t show that.

Son shining bright for Tottenham

The South Korean has played in three international tournaments since the summer. The World Cup, the Asian Games and the Asian Cup.

All this alongside the constant rigours of the Premier League and Champions League too. Most players would require a break from club football, however, Son has barely spent time recuperating from the international tournaments and was back in London soon after the Asian Cup elimination.

This is a player who always gives it his all on the pitch, and there is no question of a lack of commitment either for Spurs or his nation.

The 26-year-old has found the back of the net 14 times for us in all competitions this season, while he has a pair of World Cup goals too.

The stats don’t do justice to what Son brings to the team with his running and energy. Son is a fully charged battery, however, he has the skills on the pitch to back up his stamina. The South Korean isn’t the flashiest player in the Premier League but he knows his job well and gets it done too.

Son has always managed to score more than 10 goals in each of his Premier League seasons for Spurs, and he will be the key to the remainder of the season with Kane and Alli out injured.

Christian Eriksen has had an average season, to say the least. Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura have fizzled out after a great start to the campaign. Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks have done the job in the recent weeks but Son has kept chugging along from the first minute he played for us this season.

Tottenham have a star that is like no other in the Premier League, and if Son keeps us in the title race until Kane and Alli return, there is more than a chance of us lifting our first Premier League crown.


Tottenham to test AS Roma’s resolve as they consider €50m bid for 19-year-old Italian international



Spurs transfer news: Tottenham consider bidding €50m for AS Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo

La Repubblica (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Tottenham have entered the race to sign highly-rated Italian youngster Nicolo Zaniolo.

The newspaper claims that Tottenham are considering a €50m bid as they look to convince Roma to part ways with the 19-year-old.

Zaniolo only joined Roma last season from Inter Milan and has been one of the bright spots for the Serie A side.

The 19-year-old has recorded six goals and two assists so far this season. Zaniolo is capable of playing as a central midfielder but can do a job on the wings too.

The youngster also came on as a sub in two of Italy’s Euro 2020 qualifiers recently.

Several parties interested in Zaniolo

The report claims that Tottenham are looking to complete the deal quickly for the 19-year-old.

Spurs aren’t the only ones interested in the Italian with AC Milan, Real Madrid, Juventus and Arsenal also keeping tabs (h/t Calciomercato).

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham are interested in making young signings in the summer who can impact the first-team.

Zaniolo seems to fit that bill and the 19-year-old has the potential to improve under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs haven’t spent in two transfer windows but that seems set to change in the summer. It will be important for Pochettino to build on a decent season and it could be made even better if we reach the Champions League final.

Mauricio Pochettino to be handed £60m transfer kitty to target young players in the summer



Spurs transfer news: Mauricio Pochettino to be handed £60m transfer kitty in the summer

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham will target young players who can make an impact in the first-team.

Tottenham haven’t made any signings in two windows, yet are in the semi-finals of the Champions League and should finish in the top four this season.

The report claims that Nicolo Zaniolo of AS Roma and Jack Grealish of Aston Villa interest the Premier League club.

Zaniolo has been one of the brightest youngsters in the Serie A while Grealish has done a stellar job for the Villans over the past two seasons.

Pochettino can spend from player sales too

The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino will be given a transfer budget of £60m and that Spurs could raise another £100m from player sales to help our spending power in the summer.

The Guardian reported that Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou could leave the club in the summer.

Michel Vorm is another player that we could lose at the end of the season, but the Guardian adds that he would leave on a free.

Spurs need to bring some fresh faces in the side and signing young players could work for us.

Pochettino has done well with up and coming starlets throughout his career, and we need to build on this season’s performances.

(Photos) Tottenham’s stars pictured in great spirits ahead of London derby against West Ham



Latest Spurs news: Tottenham stars train ahead of West Ham clash

Tottenham’s stars were in great spirits in training ahead of their clash against West Ham United on Saturday.

Spurs are in a great position to finish in third position thanks to losses for Manchester United and Arsenal, and we have the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Ajax coming up too.

One player who won’t face the Dutch giants is Son Heung-min. The South Korean is suspended for the first leg but he was seen in training with Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld.

Eriksen has found his form in recent weeks and scored the only goal of the game in our win over Brighton.

Alderweireld did a decent job alongside Jan Vertonghen in the last game, and it will be interesting to see if the pair play on Saturday.

Dier waiting in the wings to start?

Eric Dier has had a stop-start season due to several injuries. The Englishman was on the bench in our win over Brighton and we could do with the midfielder returning to the Tottenham starting XI.

Fernando Llorente has had a decent season for Spurs with some crucial goals this season.

The same, however, cannot be said about Kieran Trippier, who has struggled for consistency after his World Cup heroics.

Ben Davies and Danny Rose have had a bit of a battle regarding the left-back slot in the campaign. It is the Englishman who has put in some quality performances this season too.

Hugo Lloris has come in for some sharp criticism due to a few errors between the sticks but the Frenchman is still one of the best keepers in the world and kept a clean sheet in the previous game.

West Ham won’t be easy opposition on Saturday but a win should more or less guarantee Champions League football for next season too.

“Absolutely criminal”, “An insult” – Some Tottenham fans fume as this star is omitted from PFA Team of the Year



Latest Spurs news: Some Tottenham fans fume over Son’s omission from PFA Team of the Year

The PFA Team of the Year is out and unsurprisingly the team is dominated by Liverpool and Manchester City players.

The one major surprise in the side was seeing Paul Pogba in the team. The Frenchman hasn’t been all that great this season and compared to the others on the list, his inclusion is debatable.

Sadio Mane, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling form the attack. Pogba, Fernandinho and Bernardo Silva are the midfielders while the defence features three Liverpool stars.

Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are joined by Aymeric Laporte. Ederson of Manchester City is the final name on the list.

Son shining bright for Tottenham

Son Heung-min has been one of the bright sparks in the Premier League this season.

The South Korean also participated in several international tournaments in this campaign but has 20 goals and seven assists in all competitions for Spurs.

The 26-year-old should have been included in the team ahead of Pogba given his stats, and many Tottenham fans were furious that the South Korean missed out on the nomination.

Tottenham haven’t had much to cheer in the league recently, however, they still have a chance of making the Champions League finals.

Son has been one of the stars for us in Europe and many fans questioned the selection of the PFA TOTY this season.
