This season of two-a-week fixtures suits the Spurs manager’s attritional style and is why he seems to be enjoying himself

Ah, José, it’s good to have you back. It’s been too long since we saw this version of José Mourinho, and in that decade or so it had become increasingly hard to remember exactly what we ever saw in him. How had this sourpuss with the ideological aversion to possession ever charmed us? What on earth was it about this grouch who kept demanding “respect” and his almost unwatchable teams that had made his arrival in the Premier League in 2004 seem such a vital event in the history of football in England?

Chelsea v Tottenham: match preview

Guardian - lør, 28/11/2020 - 10:00

Crack the popcorn out and get comfortable for this one. Chelsea and Tottenham have been electric so far this season while there was more than a little spark between Frank Lampard and José Mourinho when these sides met in the League Cup in September. Spurs could make a serious title statement with following up a win against Manchester City with another success at Stamford Bridge. Lampard’s side meanwhile can leapfrog Mourinho if they hold firm at home. Édouard Mendy may have a huge part to play in the outcome as his seven clean sheets in 10 games have transformed Lampard’s leaky defence. Maybe Mendy is the man who can finally halt the relentless goalscoring machine of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Graham Searles

Pressure is all on Chelsea and Lampard not Tottenham, says Mourinho

Guardian - fre, 27/11/2020 - 23:30

• Mourinho’s league leaders face Chelsea on Sunday

• Lampard will come up against his former manager

For José Mourinho, the equation is simple. You manage at a big-spending club and there is pressure to win trophies. More than that, it is an obligation. The Tottenham manager has felt it himself previously, including at Chelsea, where he delivered three Premier League titles in his two spells in charge. As he said a few years ago, having left the club under a cloud the second time: “Judas is still No 1.” No other Chelsea manager has won the league more than once for them.

It is different at Spurs where a relatively low transfer spend equals less pressure, less expectation. Mourinho says he enjoyed his first summer window at the club, in which he leant on the chairman, Daniel Levy, to sanction a net spend of £56.2m, excluding loan fees. It brought seven players and greater balance and options. In this kind of project, Mourinho says, there is no margin for recruitment error.

Fernandes and Van de Beek can click, Chelsea v Spurs is a test of title credentials and West Brom upbeat for basement battle

Crystal Palace have never won a match in the top flight when they have played on a Friday but have a great opportunity to bring an end to that statistic at the 13th attempt against struggling Newcastle. The insipid performance against Chelsea last week in which Steve Bruce’s side mustered only one shot on target in a 2-0 home defeat did not go down well with supporters and they will be interested to see how Allan Saint-Maximin responds to criticism from Alan Shearer, who said the Frenchman “hasn’t broken a sweat” since signing his new six-year contract last month. Newcastle haven’t won at Selhurst Park since December 2013, when goals from Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa helped Alan Pardew’s side record a sixth victory in eight games and move up to sixth. In the week that Pardew – whose eight-year deal at Newcastle would have expired in June had he not left suddenly to join Palace in December 2015 – began his new role as technical director at CSKA Sofia, can Bruce end that barren run in south London?
