Underrated Pearson has transformed Watford, Wolves’ unsung hero comes to fore and Messi and Griezmann just don’t click

The sound of a top-flight stadium reverberating to “We’ve got super Nigel Pearson, he knows exactly what we need” (tune: Bad Moon Rising) can be filed among the things few envisaged in August. But Watford’s win against Liverpool was a measure of the uplift one of the season’s less likely appointments has contrived. “He is always about feet on the floor, he [has] never overreacted and you have to stay focused,” said Abdoulaye Doucouré. “He showed us videos and said we can do it. Nigel is a great, great manager, a great lad, and now he will keep everyone on the floor to make sure we keep our goal to stay up.” Pearson’s tactical acumen can be underrated – as he showed with his setup against the leaders, stretching Liverpool yet managing to stay compact – but his man-management is getting crucial extra percentages out of his players.

Raúl Jiménez sends Wolves past Spurs into Premier League top six

Guardian - søn, 01/03/2020 - 17:15

A change of league positions and perhaps a changing of the guard, too. Wolves deservedly took Tottenham’s top-six place and it was yet another triumph for the coaching of Nuno Espírito Santo, whose team improbably seem to grow stronger when faced with the most exacting physical demands.

Although there are plenty of mitigating factors for the home side’s malaise, which surfaced in a disjointed performance from back to front, José Mourinho will not wish to dwell for too long on the fact he has now been defeated by two of his former players in the space of eight days. At this rate he risks looking on as one or more of Nuno and Frank Lampard oversee Champions League football, and it will take a masterful use of resources to tip the scales back in Spurs’ favour now.

Harry Winks hungry to become Tottenham’s unlikely midfield rock

England international may not seem a natural fit for José Mourinho but upping his intensity has secured a starting role

Harry Winks has heard the theory. If Michael Carrick were Spanish, the land of tiki-taka, he would have received greater recognition during his playing days and the same is possibly true of Paul Scholes in his latter years. Winks is inclined to agree. People in England do not appreciate the importance of the midfield pivot.

“Everyone always talks about Scholes and Carrick,” he says. “People like Carrick get a lot of recognition after they retire and they are more players’ players, as such. Every team needs goalscorers, attacking players, players who can sweep up the ball, but every team needs that someone who can be the link between defence and attack. The greatest teams always have that sort of player.
