Mauricio Pochettino wants Tottenham reaction against Gent

The legacy of their woeful performance in Belgium is that Pochettino's side need to overcome a one-goal deficit if they are to progress, which on the surface should not be too daunting.

Pochettino?s 50-second Tottenham rule

Mauricio Pochettino has said he knows within 50 seconds of a match whether Tottenham will be off their game.

Spurs host Gent at Wembley in the Europa League on Thursday, looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from their dismal display in the first leg in Belgium last week.

A 3-0 thrashing of Fulham in the FA Cup on Sunday saw Tottenham back at full pelt, but inconsistency has been a regular feature of their form in recent weeks.

They have won three out of their last seven in all competitions and Pochettino believes his side often set the tone at the start.

“When we start a game, if you only watch 50 seconds, you don’t need to be a genius to know we may struggle and have some problems in that game,” Pochettino said.

“In that moment it’s too difficult to change. We changed the formation at half-time to try and lift them but it was impossible.

“The problem is when you start not in a good way, it’s too difficult to change that perception and then you give a very good signal to the opponent that you are not focused on the game.

“You need to change that mentality.”

Tottenham are still favourites to progress but Gent know if they can score one away goal, their opponents will need three.

Crashing out of the Europa League would come as a bigger blow than in previous seasons, given Spurs have a genuine chance of winning the competition and appear unlikely to catch Chelsea in the Premier League.

The club have not won a European trophy since 1984 – or any silverware since lifting the League Cup in 2008 – but Pochettino says there is no short-cut for a club of Tottenham’s financial muscle.

“We cannot buy time, that is the most important thing for us,” Pochettino said.

“You never know in football, but in a short period you cannot do it – only if you have money enough to buy the best players in the world. Then you maybe don’t need much time.

“But the process we are in and with our philosophy we need time. We are showing a good basis but now it’s time to develop the winning mentality.”

They must also find a winning mentality at Wembley, where Spurs struggled to their cost in the Champions League, as two home defeats all-but ended their hopes of reaching the knock-out stages.

Tottenham have sold out the 90,000-capacity stadium for Thursday’s match and beating Gent would create a more positive feeling on the back of their victory there against CSKA Moscow in December.

Harry Kane believes the atmosphere under the famous arch is even better than at White Hart Lane.

“White Hart Lane is obviously a lot smaller and the crowd are on top of you. We have a great atmosphere there,” Kane said.

“But at Wembley it is even better to be honest with you. Even though the fans are not as close to the pitch, having 90,000 there is incredible.

“I think it’s a full house again so hopefully we can use it to our advantage.”

Tottenham youngsters Marcus Edwards and Kyle Walker-Peters both trained with the first team on Wednesday although Pochettino is not expected to make many changes.

Erik Lamela has begun running again as he continues his recovery from a hip problem but the club said Danny Rose remains “a number of weeks away from full training”.

It places in doubt the full-back’s availability for England’s friendly against Germany in four weeks’ time.

“I hope he will be good for that but I cannot say anything more,” Pochettino said. “We don’t know. It’s too difficult to say.”

Pochettino faces selection quandary vs. Gent with crowded fixture list

Mauricio Pochettino says it was important for Spurs to rediscover the feeling of winning in their FA Cup win over Fulham. Steve Nicol is critical of Spurs' inability to make up for the current struggles of Harry Kane and Dele Alli. BT Sport highlight: Gent earned a hard-fought 1-0 first leg advantage, as Tottenham failed to convert their chances. Eric Dier says while Spurs showed more aggression, they didn't create nearly as many chances. Spurs suffered a surprise first-leg Europa League defeat in Belgium going down to a Jeremy Perbet goal. Most Tottenham supporters would probably have been a little surprised, but pleased, when they saw the strength of the lineups against both Gent and Fulham. The expectation was that reserve players such as Kevin Wimmer, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Josh Onomah, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Vincent Janssen would start at least one of the games in the Europa League and the FA Cup. However, they have let the side down on various occasions and the manager has responded accordingly, selecting more...

Do Man Utd get more penalties than anyone else?

Manchester United are on the longest run without a penalty of any Premier League club, in contrast to their historical reputation.

We take a look at the penalty records of all the Premier League teams with Man City and Tottenham leading the way this season.

Press Association Sport data also shows that after Wigan (scored) and Huddersfield (missed) were finally awarded penalties on Tuesday night, Rotherham are the only remaining club in England’s top four divisions without a spot-kick in the league this season.

Here, we look at some of the key facts.

  • United have had only one league penalty all season and have now waited 23 games for another to come around. That contrasts sharply with the previous decade – they averaged seven per season in the last seven years of Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign, had five in 2013-14 and eight in two seasons under Louis van Gaal.
  • By contrast, United’s rivals Manchester City lead the way alongside Tottenham – both teams have had seven league penalties this season and scored five.
  •  Liverpool are just one behind and have scored all six. Arsenal have also been awarded six.
  • Aside from United, West Brom are the only other top-flight club with just one spot-kick to their name.
  • The average Premier League club has been awarded 3.9 penalties this season, scoring 3.2. Stoke and West Ham fit that pattern most closely, each scoring three from four.

Penalties awarded this season/games since last penalty:

(Data correct as of February 22)

Arsenal – 6 penalties/0 games since last penalty

Bournemouth – 5/4

Burnley – 4/1

Chelsea – 3/2

Crystal Palace – 5/7

Everton – 3/5

Hull – 2/10

Leicester – 5/12

Liverpool – 6/4

Manchester City – 7/2

Manchester Utd – 1/23

Middlesbrough – 2/2

Southampton – 3/3

Stoke – 4/8

Sunderland – 5/5

Swansea – 3/10

Tottenham – 7/1

Watford – 2/7

West Brom – 1/20

West Ham – 4/8

Tottenham could have signed Diego Maradona - Sheringham

Ardiles was in charge at White Hart lane between 1993 and 1994. He told Sheringham he was in talks with the Argentine striker before deciding he had 'too much baggage' to make the deal worthwhile.

Tottenham Hotspur came close to signing Diego Maradona in the 1990s, according to the club's former captain Teddy Sheringham. Sheringham says Ossie Ardiles, who managed Tottenham in the 1993-94 season, held talks with his fellow Argentine Maradona, before deciding against the move and signing Germany striker Jurgen Klinsmann instead. Maradona was in his mid-30s that year and spent the campaign in his homeland with Newell's Old Boys after leaving Spanish club Sevilla. "I got on really well with Ossie...

Referees: The ?homer?, the ?anti-Arsenal? man, the ?Man Utd lover?

Arsenal fans live in fear of referee Mike Dean, but there is another man with the whistle they should fear more, according to the stats.

To celebrate the news that the Mark Clattenburg farewell tour is now confirmed, starting with the big West Brom-Bournemouth clash this weekend, WhoScored.com have launched a new referee statistics feature.

You can now find out just how well your team has fared under an upcoming fixture’s referee in terms of both disciplinary records and results in an instant (almost).

To get you started, we’ve looked into five standout statistics, be they from this season or since the 2009/10 campaign.

1. The mercurial Mike Dean

We start off by simply proving what you already knew. Mike Dean tends to be at the centre of attention when he is officiating. In 19 matches he has awarded 10 penalties – that’s the most per game in the Premier League this season (0.53) – while a total of 5 red cards is also a league high.

Sunderland and Bournemouth have both been reduced to 10 by the Merseysider twice.

Interestingly, and perhaps not surprisingly if you look back at some of his actions when refereeing them in the past, three of the red cards he has awarded have been to teams facing Tottenham.

 

He’s only been in charge of Spurs games three times this season but the opposition have had a man sent off in all three, while Tottenham are also the only team that he has awarded more than one of said 10 penalties to this season.

 

2. The mystery of Mike Jones

No football fan likes seeing games disrupted by whistle happy referees, so if Mike Jones is the man in the middle prepare for the worst. He has awarded the most fouls per game in the Premier League this season (25.79), and of referees to have taken charge of at least ten matches has given the most free kicks per tackle (0.80).

The fact that he is top on both counts isn’t particularly interesting, someone has to be after all, but the fact that he has awarded the fewest cards per game (3.4) is certainly intriguing.

Most would argue that they don’t like to see cards brandished left, right and centre, but this could also be interpreted as weakness if Jones is reluctant to lay down the law. He’s given a card for every 7.7 fouls on average, compared to Andre Marriner at the opposite end of the spectrum (5.4), who has awarded the fewest fouls per game (20.39) but considerably more yellow cards.

 

3. Lee Mason – the home banker

It may have been a miserable month (or three) for Leicester but if Lee Mason’s statistics are anything to go by, there may be hope on the horizon.

He will take charge of the Foxes’ home game with Liverpool next Monday having overseen the highest proportion of home wins in the league (64.3%) and just one away victory from 14 Premier League matches this season (Manchester City at West Brom).

Leicester fans may not feel favourable to Mason’s appointment given that he awarded two penalties to Middlesbrough in the only Foxes game he has officiated this season (a 2-2 draw), but Liverpool fans will have be even more irked by his appearance.

Mason has been in charge of Liverpool twice this season, with the Reds losing 2-0 to both Burnley and Hull.

Out of interest, Jon Moss is the only referee to oversee a greater proportion of victories for the away team than the home team this season.

 

4. The referee Arsenal should dread more than Mike Dean

It’s well known that Arsenal fans are convinced that Mike Dean is a Spurs fan with a vendetta against them, and the stats from point one in this piece certainly add fuel to the former assumption.

However, while the Gunners’ record against Dean historically is pretty woeful, there is one man that has proven to be an even greater bane on their results since the 2009/10 season.

Dean has refereed Arsenal in the league more than any other in that time (27), with Wenger’s side earning just 1.04 points per game. It’s only a slight margin, but they have fared even worse under Michael Oliver in that time – who was in charge as they steamrolled Sutton United 2-0 on Monday.

The 32-year old has officiated 16 of the Gunners’ league games since his promotion to the Premier League in 2010, and the Londoners have won just three times. An average of one point per game is worse than the likes Swansea, Stoke and West Brom have fared under Oliver.

 

5. The one referee that really loves Manchester United?

As far as claims that officials are favourable to certain clubs are concerned, traditionally it’s Manchester United that most believe were often given special treatment, particularly in the Alex Ferguson era.

The likes of Howard Webb and Mark Clattenburg have both been accused of bias towards the Red Devils, though United’s record with the pair in charge pales in significance to that under Lee Mason.

Since the 2009/10 Premier League campaign Mason has officiated 180 matches, including 16 Manchester United fixtures. Of those 16 United have won 14 and never lost, with Villa (2014/15) and Birmingham (2010/11) the only two teams to take a point from the 2012/13 champions.

By contrast United’s win rate with messrs Webb and Clattenburg at the helm are 60% and 47.8% respectively in the same time frame.

Jurgen Klopp: I nearly signed Christian Eriksen for Borussia Dortmund

Thomas Tuchel describes the strange atmosphere Dortmund endured in their win over Wolfsburg without their loudest fans. Jurgen Klopp has told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet that he once looked into signing Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen during his time managing Borussia Dortmund. The now-Liverpool boss was scouting a replacement for Bayern Munich-bound Mario Gotze in the summer of 2013 and targeted Eriksen, then of Ajax, as well as Kevin De Bruyne and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Dortmund eventually settled on a €27.5 million deal for Mkhitaryan with Shakhtar Donetsk in July 2013, with Eriksen joining Tottenham...

Paper Talk: Tevez wants out of China; Prem pair want Ox

Carlos Tevez wants to leave China after two months, while an Arsenal midfielder is wanted by a pair of Premier League clubs, according to Wednesday’s papers.

 

Rooney heading for China

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is ready to leave Old Trafford in favour of a big-money move to China, according to reports on Wednesday.

The Daily Mirror claims that Rooney may have already played his last game for United amid interest from clubs in the Chinese Super League.

The report states that vice-chairman Ed Woodward has apparently already given Rooney’s agent the green light for the 31-year-old to make a move.

However, Mourinho said in October that Rooney was “going nowhere” and reiterated on Tuesday that he did not want him to leave.

“I would never push – or try to push – a legend of this club to another destiny,” added the Portuguese coach.

“So you have to ask him if he sees himself staying in the club for the rest of his career or if he sees himself moving.

“It is not a question for me because I am happy to have him. I don’t want him to leave.”

Rooney is expected to be able to command £750,000 a week in China, a sum that would make him the highest paid player in the world.

 

Ox in demand

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Reportedly wanted by Liverpool

Manchester City and Everton are apparently both considering summer moves for Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The midfielder has struggled to establish himself as a regular in the starting XI, and with just a year left on his deal it is possible he may look for pastures new.

A report in the Mirror, City boss Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain, and still remembers his display against Bayern Munich two-and-a-half years ago.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman – backed by a bumper summer warchest – is also an admirer of the former Saints man and will consider a move to bring him to Goodison Park.

Ox fuelled rumours of a potential Emirates exit in October when he told Goals on Sunday: “I’d by lying if I wasn’t going to sit here and say that it has crossed my mind that I need more game time.

“As a footballer you want to play every game. I’m not happy when I’m not playing.

“There is going to come a time in my career, and I think I’m approaching that, when I do need to be getting more regular football.”
