Pep Guardiola renews José Mourinho feud over Sterling's England withdrawal

Guardian - fre, 20/11/2020 - 23:30
  • Sterling sure to face Spurs on Saturday, claims Mourinho
  • ‘Maybe Mourinho is a doctor,’ says Manchester City coach

Pep Guardiola has hit back at José Mourinho after the Tottenham manager cast doubt over the legitimacy of Raheem Sterling’s withdrawal from England duty.

Sterling returned to training with City on Friday after being sent home from the national team camp on Monday, a calf injury being the reason provided. He had missed the previous day’s match in Belgium and was back in his club’s care by the time England faced Iceland on Wednesday, but is in contention to start when City visit Spurs on Saturday evening.

Tottenham v Manchester City: match preview

Guardian - fre, 20/11/2020 - 18:35

José Mourinho and Pep Guardiola meet for a 24th time as managers in what is sure to be a highlight of the weekend. Guardiola will be seriously nervous of a title-denting defeat after signing a contract extension at Manchester City, if Sergio Agüero and Raheem Sterling fail to make the starting lineup. Mourinho will be quietly confident his flying Tottenham can put serious pressure on a City’s brittle defence. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have been unstoppable and it is unlikely the international break will allow any respite from their surgical precision. Graham Searles

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Guardian - fre, 20/11/2020 - 01:01

Anything could happen at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Foxes sniff their chance and Lookman can bounce back

Both sides have personnel problems and coming in the immediate aftermath of an international break, Tottenham’s home match against Manchester Cityseems nigh on impossible to predict, even before factoring in some of the borderline-bonkers scorelines featuring both teams in other matches this season. A win for Tottenham on Saturday evening would make them overnight leaders of the Premier League and leave City looking uncharacteristically forlorn and out of sorts in mid-table. With Gareth Bale gaining sharpness with every passing day and likely to start in attack for the home side along with the irrepressible Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that City will have their work cut out in what seems a genuine test of both sides’ title credentials. José Mourinho is known for his extreme pragmatism, but it is difficult to see his side approach this contest in anything other than a comparatively gung-ho manner with so much attacking talent at their disposal.

Competition for places is ridiculously stiff in almost every area of the pitch after a topsy-turvy start

One of the benefits of selecting an abstract football team is that you can do so safe in the knowledge the players concerned will almost certainly never line up, face actual opposition and get hammered in a state of affairs that would go a long way towards proving just how difficult life as a manager can be.

In picking the Premier League team of the season so far, from a topsy-turvy and often chaotic campaign played behind closed doors, the main difficulties did not so much centre around who to include, but who to leave out given the ridiculous stiffness of the competition for places in almost every area.

Ray Clemence obituary

Guardian - man, 16/11/2020 - 14:28

Athletic, elegant and decisive goalkeeper for England, Liverpool and Spurs

It says much about the outstanding ability of Ray Clemence, who has died aged 72 after suffering from prostate cancer, that he was able to amass 61 caps for England during an era in which he was vying for his place against Gordon Banks and Peter Shilton, the two best England goalkeepers of all time. Succeeding Banks between the posts in 1972, Clemence battled with Shilton for the keeper’s jersey for much of the 1970s until his slightly younger rival achieved ascendancy.

However, while Clemence’s years with England brought much acclaim, it was his career in the domestic game that delivered the glory. As the last line of defence in the great Liverpool sides of the 70s he won three European Cups, five First Division championships, two Uefa Cups, an FA Cup and a League Cup before a move to Tottenham in the early 80s added FA Cup and Uefa Cup winners medals to that tally. He then became a member of the Spurs backroom staff and subsequently enjoyed a long tenure as England’s goalkeeping coach.
