Rant of the day: No better time than now for Tottenham to face Borussia Dortmund

Tottenham have the bit between their teeth after another tough win in the Premier League, this time against Leicester City.

The Foxes could have come out that game with a point, provided they had shooting boots on. Meanwhile, Spurs showed quality in decisive moments to seal the three points.

Son Heung-min scored the final goal of a mad game in which Hugo Lloris made a couple of incredible saves to keep us in the lead, and ultimately, in the race for the title.

Now, we resume our Champions League challenge in midweek, and it doesn’t get any tougher than facing Borussia Dortmund these days.

The Bundesliga leaders have been terrific this season as they lead Bayern Munich by five points. However, this seems to be the ideal time to face them, with them losing their league game over the weekend.

Tottenham have been flying in the Premier League

Late goals and doing just enough to win games – by doing all this, Tottenham are showing their character and determination to keep in touch with the league’s top two teams.

Fulham, Newcastle, Watford and Leicester were the four Premier League games where we weren’t at our best but came out with all three points.

All the games contained late goals, epitomising our will to work hard till the last second. Tottenham just seem to have an extra gear in the final minutes of a tie, and that will come in handy when we face the Dortmund juggernaut.

Credit must be given to the manager Mauricio Pochettino and the squad. We have played without Harry Kane and Dele Alli in the last few games, despite not spending a penny in the previous two windows to add depth to the squad.

Hugo Lloris

Alli hasn’t had a brilliant season, however, he is a match winner and will be greatly missed against the Germans.

Son has stepped up since his return from the Asian Cup, and the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Hugo Lloris seem to be in form.

Dortmund have problems

The Bundesliga giants were flying high until recently. Their last game saw them throw away a 3-0 lead with 15 minutes to go against Hoffenheim.

The leaders had a three-goal cushion over their opponents but somehow ended the game with a draw. This comes on the back of getting knocked out of the DFB Pokal Cup in midweek, where they conceded three goals to Werder Bremen.

In fact, Favre’s men have not won any of their last three games and have kept just one clean sheet in their last six encounters.

That should give us the confidence of finding the back of the net at Wembley in the first leg. Furthermore, the Bundesliga leaders could be hampered by the possible absence of Marco Reus.

Pochettino has got the better of Dortmund before

Tottenham scraped through a tough group stage this season and did the same last season too. We defeated Dortmund home and away to progress with Real Madrid last time out.

It isn’t to say that Dortmund are less threatening now or are worse off, but we should be able to exploit their recent problems.

Tottenham need to be a little careful after their painful exit at the hands of Juventus last season, however, this team has more steel about them and we should have enough to win the first leg.


La Liga giants to submit last-minute £60m offer for this out-of-contract Tottenham star



Spurs transfer news: Madrid prepare £60m bid for Tottenham’s Eriksen

The Sun claims that Real Madrid will make a last-minute £60m offer to land Christian Eriksen.

The Dane is out of a contract at the end of the season and the report claims that Real see Eriksen as a replacement for Luka Modric.

The 27-year-old is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and started in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City on Saturday.

Daniel Levy doesn’t want to lose big players on a free and the report adds Madrid will try to use this and land Eriksen just before the end of the transfer window on 2 September.

Tottenham did not allow Mousa Dembele to leave on a free last season and the Belgian was sold in the winter window.

Spurs can sell players till 2 September to foreign clubs but cannot buy until the winter window.

Spurs cannot lose Eriksen on a free

This is a tough situation for Spurs as replacing a talent like Eriksen will not be easy.

However, it is better to sell him now and get some decent money in rather than losing him on a free.

Eriksen could also sign for a Premier League club next season, and strengthening our rivals is the last thing we should be doing next season.

Getting £60m might not be the most best deal for a player of Eriksen’s ability, but it is better than losing him on a free to a Premier League rival.

Pochettino pleased with 2-2 Man City draw but explains why teams cannot be compared



Latest Spurs news: Pochettino explains why Tottenham cannot be compared with City after 2-2 draw

Mauricio Pochettino was pleased after picking up a point against Manchester City at the Etihad.

The home side dominated the game and seemed to have won the tie in the final moments when Gabriel Jesus smashed the ball into the net.

However, the goal was ruled out after VAR confirmed Aymeric Laporte had handled the ball in the build-up to the effort.

Tottenham were second best for most of the evening but took their chances.

Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura were the saviours for Spurs and Pochettino admitted that Manchester City were better and his side needs to improve further (h/t

The Argentine even suggested that the team isn’t settled enough as the transfer window is still active, and explained why Tottenham’s situation could not be compared to that of City’s (h/t

“That is never easy and we face today the last Premier League winner, for the past two seasons. They are a very consistent team, improving every season, signing players that came from different teams who were winning, like Cancelo from Juventus.

“We are in a different process. That is why we cannot compare both teams.”

Poch highlights Tottenham’s spirit

The manager also spoke about the “faith and belief” in the side as they twice came from behind to draw level.

However, Pochettino reiterated that his team needs to improve but was happy with four points from two games so far.

Getting anything against City is an achievement these days and even if we rode our luck a bit, a point has to be celebrated.

Tottenham didn’t start Giovani Lo Celso or Ryan Sessegnon in this game, so there should be more to come from the side.

Son Heung-min should be back from his suspension soon, and it will be interesting to see how we play with a full-strength side.

“Announce VAR new contract”, “VAR MOTM” – Some Tottenham fans react hilariously to 2-2 draw with Manchester City



Latest Spurs news: Last-minute drama helps Tottenham earn point against Man City

The latest instalment of the Tottenham v Manchester City rivalry had lots of drama, once again, right at the end.

Last season’s Champions League encounter at the Etihad will remain etched in memory, but this was another battle that cannot be forgotten.

Manchester City started the game in red hot form as they cut our defence easily. Jan Vertonghen did not start again and Davinson Sanchez was having some problems, like the rest of the team.

Lucas Moura

Raheem Sterling got the opener after a delicious cross from Kevin de Bruyne but we were back in it after Erik Lamela caught Ederson out of position with a curling effort.

The home side then took the lead after a great finish from Sergio Aguero but there was more to come in the second half.

Moura magic from a corner

Spurs were being outplayed in the attacking third by City and we needed some luck to stay in the game.

Lucas Moura was brought on in the second half and he ran towards the box for a corner. The Brazilian then rose highest and headed the ball past the City keeper.

Moura had scored just 19 seconds after coming on and there were wild celebrations in the 56th minute.

City huffed and puffed in the final minutes, and it seemed that Gabriel Jesus had given them the winner in the dying moments of the game.

However, VAR confirmed that Aymeric Laporte had handled the ball in the build-up and the effort was cancelled out.

Many Tottenham fans were relieved at getting the draw while some thanked VAR for helping with the result.

“Absolute legend”, “You beautiful bald hero” – Some Spurs fans react to star’s hilarious tweet after 2-2 draw with Man City



Latest Spurs news: Moura has the perfect tweet regarding his goal against Man City

Lucas Moura didn’t start for Tottenham in their draw against Manchester City, but the Brazilian came off the bench to have a telling moment.

It was surprising to see the attacker on the bench with Erik Lamela getting the nod in the XI. Manchester City started the game in all-out attack mode and soon scored via Raheem Sterling.

Kevin de Bruyne was having a brilliant first half as he found space time and again and made us pay with some delicious crosses.

Lucas Moura

However, Lamela soon equalised after he caught out Ederson with a curling effort. City then restored their lead when De Bruyne found Sergio Aguero before half-time.

Moura was brought on in the second half and the Brazilian made an instant impact.

Fans go crazy after Moura’s introduction

City might have dominated the game but Tottenham took their chances to keep them at bay.

There was some controversy right at the end with Gabriel Jesus celebrating the winner, but the goal was ruled out as Aymeric Laporte had handled the ball just before the Brazilian struck.

This brought back memories of the Champions League clash from last season, and VAR was on our side once again.

Moura certainly had a great impact coming off the bench and it was surprising that he out-jumped several City defenders to head in the second equaliser.

Nevertheless, the Brazilian had a great tweet regarding his introduction and here are some of the reactions from the Spurs fans to Moura’s message.
