Kane finds his shooting boots as Spurs make mischief at the Lane

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City - Premier League

Both teams started off well inside the first ten minutes with Spurs playing under pressure by the way they were trying to get the ball forward too quickly.

Lloris made a defensive error in the 7th minute when he was attempting a goal kick. The ball flew straight at Sterling, who fired a strike over the top of the crossbar, but the referee blew his whistle after seeing that Sterling had used his arm to control the ball. Aguero released a superb low shot meant for the bottom right-hand corner, but Lloris was there and he made a brilliant save by tipping it round the post and out for a corner. Then City went on the attack after a wasted corner from Spurs. Walker with the sloppy pass but Toure doesn’t care. He runs forward, roads up with De Bruyne, who slotted home for the opener in the 25

Tottenham v Crystal Palace 1-0: Son and Lloris to the rescue!

Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace - Premier League

Spurs got everything right in the first half of this match and was eventually rewarded in the 68th minute.

Son made his PL debut for Spurs over the weekend and he did not let me down. He has integrated well into the team and I can see Spurs depending on him more as the season progresses. Cabaye was denied a scrumptious potential opener by the woodwork in the 65th minute. Lloris then made a match-winning save before Son found the back of the net for the winner in the 68th minute.

Lloris was my Man of the Match simply because his saves came up big for the team. He has now gone 278 minutes without conceding in the PL and Son has scored…

Son delivers as Spurs claim victory

Heung-Min Son showcased a superb display last evening when Tottenham faced Qarabag in their Europa League group opener.

Qarabag scored the opening goal in the 7th minute after Kieran Trippier brought down Afran Ismayilov resulting in a penalty. Richard had Lloris beat as he converted confidently from the spot. Qarabag continued to dominate the game, but Spurs fought back hard.

In the 28th minute, Andros Townsend swung in a corner and an unmarked Son tied things up at 1-1. Two minutes later, Son was at it again. He played a through ball to Dele Alli who laid the ball back for Son to smash home his second. A brace for the South Korean on his debut for his new club and he couldn’t have written the script any better. Son is a prospect I am utterly exciting about. I can’t wait to see him light up the PL.

Lloris ‘still happy at Tottenham’

Although the French goalie is still happy at Spurs, Hugo demands more from his team as they prepare for their Europa League group opener against Qarabag FK. Talking at the presser, the captain sounded out a warning:

“European competition is always important. I expect more from Tottenham and I expect more from me as well. We need to go as far as possible in the competition. There is a possibility to get to the Champions League if you got to the final and win the final.”

Good luck Spurs.

Valbuena strikes late as France beat Portugal

“Victory is always the best cure for losses,”

Les Bleus clinched a well-deserved victory on Friday against Portugal with Mathieu Valbuena scoring a sublime free kick in the 85th minute. Watching Portugal play was like watching Master (Dominant) and Servant (Submissive) with the Portuguese being the servants. They were pretty poor although Rui kept France out of goal for as long as he could.

Nabil Fekir was handed his first debut with Les Bleus, but things turned bad in the 12th minute when he clutched his thigh and had to limp out of action. It was pretty painful to watch. This was his 5th cap and he is very promising. I wish him a speedy recovery. Cristiano’s only chance at goal was a free kick which Hugo Lloris parried away. Anthony Martial was handed his debut in the second half.

I am delightful for this…
