Premier League Preview: Wolves v Tottenham

Defeats to Liverpool and Leicester have forced Spurs out of the Top Four in recent weeks with Nuno Santo’s Wolves winning just once this month.

Mourinho rang the changes for the midweek cup win over Stoke and the Portuguese boss is likely to recall most of his big hitters.

Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon and Son Heung-min were all rested against Michael O’Neill’s team and should be fresh to return at Molineux.

Defeat to Burnley in midweek will have raised some selection problems for Santo to mull over and he will look to overhaul his starting side.

Willy Boly and Fernando Marcal should come back to stiffen up the defence with Adama Traore and Fabio Silva set to add some greater attacking power.

Kick Off in this one is at 8pm at Molineux.

Premier League Preview: Tottenham v Arsenal

Mikel Arteta’s side make the short trip across the capital without a league win in over a month and with the hosts currently riding high at the top of the table.

Mourinho rested some of his star names for the midweek draw at Linz and he’s expected to bring Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon back into the starting XI tomorrow.

However, skipper Hugo Lloris looks certain to miss out due to a muscle injury, meaning that Joe Hart could start his first Premier League game since Boxing Day 2018.

For Arteta, he is also expected to rotate after Europa League action, but the Spaniard is still without two key players through injury.

Thomas Partey and David Luiz will both miss this one as they edge back to full fitness with striker Nicolas Pepe serving the second match of a three-game ban

And we are all set to go in North London with a 4.30pm kick off on Sunday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Harry Kane seals 1-0 Tottenham Premier League win at West Brom

Spurs were far from their best in West Midlands but Kane’s late intervention makes it four straight Premier League away wins for Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese boss opted to hand Gareth Bale his first league start of the season against the Baggies but the Welsh international struggled to make an impact against the hosts.

Spurs did carve out a string of half chances in the opening 45, but the best chances fell to West Brom, as Callum Robinson tested Hugo Lloris.

West Brom worked hard to shut Tottenham out after the break with Sergio Reguilon’s long range drive well saved by Sam Johnstone.

With Tottenham unable find a breakthrough, they left the door open for the hosts on the counter attack, and Lloris produced another vital stop to deny Karlan Grant.

But with Mourinho driving them on from the touchline, Spurs began to turn the screw in the final 10 minutes.

Johnstone was at his best to deny Toby Alderweireld and Carlos Vinicius but he could do nothing as Kane’s finally broke their resistance.

Irish international Matt Doherty hung a cross into the box and with Johnstone was caught in no man’s land, as Kane stole in to nod home his 150th Premier League goal.

Gareth Bale seals Tottenham 2-1 win over Brighton

The Welsh international came off the bench to clinch all three points as Spurs move up to second in the table.

Mourinho’s team were on top from the start in this one as Harry Kane and Sergio Reguilon forced early stops from Robert Sanchez.

And with Spurs coming in waves against the under pressure Seagulls defence, Kane edged them in front on 10 minutes.

The England skipper was fouled right on the edge of the box by Adam Lallana and after a long VAR check he confidently fired home from the spot.

Brighton looked to wrestle themselves back into it after the break as highly rated full back Tariq Lamptey netted his first ever Premier League goal.

Solly March stretched the Spurs defence in behind to pull back for Pascal Gross and he unselfishly fed in Lamptey to sidefoot past Hugo Lloris.

Mourinho threw on Bale in the closing stages to try and turn the tide and the Real Madrid loanee provided the vital impetus.

Toby Alderweireld’s pass sent Reguilon free in behind Lamptey and the Spaniard arrowed cross found Bale inside the box and the returning made no mistake to power past Sanchez.

West Ham secured dramatic late 3-3 Premier League draw at Tottenham

Kane and Son looked to have this game wrapped up with three goals inside the first 15 minutes but an incredible late comeback from the Hammers secured a dramatic draw.

Spurs have been quick starters recent weeks but Son’s 45 second opener flew past Lukasz Fabianksi before Jose Mourinho had even taken his seat.

And there was no letting up from the hosts as West Ham simply froze in the opening stages.

The Son and Kane dream team linked up again on four minutes as Kane rolled away from Fabien Balbuena and powered home.

And with the Hammers still rocking from Kane’s first goal, he added his second on 15 minutes.

Son freed Sergio Reguilon in behind and the Spaniard’s cross into the box was bulleted home by Kane.

With Spurs in danger of running riot after the break, Moyes was forced to change his approach after the break and Pablo Fornals missed a massive opportunity after the restart.

Mourinho threw on Gareth Bale for his second Spurs debut and the Welshman almost made an immediate impact as Kane hammered his pass against the post.

West Ham sensed their chance following that miss as Balbuena powered home Aaron Cresswell’s corner.

That threw the cat amongst the pigeons for Spurs in the final minutes as Davinson Sanchez sliced Vladimir Coufal’s cross past Hugo Lloris.

And just as Spurs looked primed to hang on in the final seconds Manuel Lanzini nailed in an absolute thunderbolt.

Manchester United continue chase of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho

Tottenham Hotspur have pipped United to the post for the signature of full back Reguilon, who will link up with ex-Reds boss Jose Mourinho in North London for a €30m fee.

Manchester United were in talks with Real Madrid over a potential transfer, but the Spanish giants’ insistence on buy-back and first refusal clauses in the player’s contract soured the deal.

Some sources claim the buy back clause is a mere €40m, affording just €10m profit to the selling club.

Wales star Gareth Bale is also in line for a move back to former club Spurs, with the 31-year-old evidently unhappy in Madrid.

Much has been made of Bale’s time at the Bernabeu, with manager Zinedine Zidane seeing the winger as surplus to requirements – Real are even willing to pay a chunk of the player’s wages in order to see him leave the club.

Manchester United were offered the chance to secure Gareth Bale, but have decided against it, preferring to save any transfer funds for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

Dortmund have made it crystal clear that Sancho will be staying in Germany beyond the October 5th deadline, insisting the England man is not for sale.

However, Manchester United appear willing to call Dortmund’s bluff, with some reports suggesting Ed Woodward is willing to wait until the final stages of the window in order to force the Bundesliga side to accept an offer for Sancho.

Spurs nearing Gareth Bale loan return and Sergio Reguilon signing in double Real Madrid capture

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Jose Mourinho will soon be welcoming full back Sergio Reguilon through the doors at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a deal believed to be worth €30m (£27.6m).

Romano claims personal terms have been agreed with the player ahead of the Spurs move, as have buy-back and first refusal clauses in Reguilon’s contract.

The Spaniard had been in discussions with Manchester United over a possible switch to Old Trafford, but United were not prepared to meet Real Madrid’s criteria of those said clauses and as such pulled out of any deal.

That left the door wide open for Spurs, who have all but sewn up the transfer.

But Reguilon might not be the only arrival from the Spanish giants, as reports claim that ex-Tottenham star Gareth Bale could make a return to the Premier League with his former club.

Bale’s disgruntlement at Real Madrid has been well documented, and it is clear for all to see that he is not fancied by current boss Zinedine Zidane.

The Wales international was close to a move to China during the January transfer window, but Real pulled the plug late on.

Now though a homecoming for Bale seems closer than ever, with it suggested Madrid are willing to pay a chunk of the 31-year-old’s wages in order to see him leave the Bernanbeu.

This is where Spurs are likely to take a chance in bringing Bale ‘home’ on a loan deal – Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett confirmed to the BBC: “Gareth still loves Spurs, we are talking. It’s where he wants to be”.

The deal is thought to cost Spurs around €20m for the season.
