Harry Kane to get chance to break August duck for Tottenham

Guardian - fre, 17/08/2018 - 23:29

• Striker has failed to score in 14 games during August
• Kane has been below best form since return from ankle injury

Harry Kane looks set to be given another opportunity to break his August duck against Fulham, despite the Spurs and England captain having effectively had no pre-season training. After being handed a start in Tottenham’s league opener, only five days after returning to training following the World Cup, Kane failed to score and looked short of sharpness in the 2-1 win at Newcastle last Saturday. The 25-year-old has failed to score in 14 games during August and has also appeared beneath his best form since returning from an ankle injury at the end of last season. But Mauricio Pochettino believes external impressions do not tell the full story.

Tottenham v Fulham: match preview

Guardian - fre, 17/08/2018 - 18:09

Tottenham wave goodbye to Son Heung-min who will be competing at the Asian Games until September with South Korea’s Under-23 side as one of their three senior players. Tottenham are counting on the favourites prevailing as a gold medal will mean Son is exempt from two years’ military service. Mauricio Pochettino has ample cover but with disappointment at the new stadium’s delay and legs still weary from exertions in Russia this could be a perfect time for Fulham to at least grab a point. Slavisa Jokanovic’s side showed promise against Crystal Palace especially from Jean Michaël Seri. Naturally Harry Kane’s never ending search for a goal in August, now standing at 898 minutes, continues. Graham Searles

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Chelsea and Arsenal promise goals and flaws, Fulham must tighten up and will sparks fly between Benítez and Warnock?

With two teams in flux, Chelsea’s derby with Arsenal is a meeting that promises goals. Both sides are vulnerable in defence and dangerous in attack. Although beaten comfortably in the end, Huddersfield exposed Chelsea’s weakness to attacks down the wings last week and Arsenal may aim to do likewise, while David Luiz, in particular, will likely struggle to keep up with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the middle. But Chelsea’s midfield thrusters – who could include Eden Hazard from the start as well as N’Golo Kanté in all-new Roving Mode – could wreak havoc at the other end, especially if certain Arsenal midfielders remain dozy when it comes to defensive duties. That is something Unai Emery needs to change and he could start by picking Lucas Torreira instead of Granit Xhaka. Or he might consider deploying both in a midfield trio with Mattéo Guendouzi. But even that would probably not be enough to keep Chelsea at bay so Emery will most likely err on the side of adventure and start Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Özil and Aaron Ramsey in a difficult away assignment. Petr Cech is likely to start in goal at Stamford Bridge but how long can the manager persevere with a keeper less suited to his approach than the new signing Bernd Leno? PD

Mauricio Pochettino ready for ‘toughest challenge’ of Tottenham career

Guardian - tor, 16/08/2018 - 23:39
• Manager wants to win first trophy of his Spurs tenure
• Argentinian apologises over stadium delay

Mauricio Pochettino says he knew this season would be the “toughest challenge” of his Tottenham career but was determined to take it on out of a sense of gratitude to the club.

Pochettino turned down the advances of Real Madrid this summer to sign a new contract with Spurs. In the past week, however, the club have emerged from the transfer window empty-handed and postponed the opening of their new £850m stadium.

Slavisa Jokanovic urges Ryan Sessegnon to drive Fulham’s top-flight return

Guardian - tor, 16/08/2018 - 23:30

• Teenager is ‘one of the longest-serving players in this team’
• Fulham prepare for Wembley return to face Tottenham

Slavisa Jokanovic believes Fulham can lean on the prodigiously talented Ryan Sessegnon as they seek to adjust to life back in the Premier League, with the teenager’s presence in the side providing some continuity after a summer of lavish transfer spending.

Sessegnon made his first top‑flight appearance in the 2-0 home defeat by Crystal Palace last weekend and will confront Tottenham Hotspur, one of the elite clubs who has closely monitored his eye-catching progress over recent seasons, at Wembley on Saturday.
