Tottenham v Leeds: match preview

“I don’t play against Mr Bielsa, never,” José Mourinho said. For the Tottenham manager, it is not him against Marcelo Bielsa, rather his team against Bielsa’s Leeds. Yet it is hard to overlook the contrasting styles of the managers; how they frame an intriguing game. Under Bielsa, Leeds might now be a favourite of the neutral (what a rebrand!) and they will look to rush men forward. But can they avoid damage by going one-v-one at the back against Harry Kane and Son Heung-min? David Hytner

Sam Allardyce takes aim at Arsenal, Danny Ings could return to haunt Liverpool and José Mourinho must change tack

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has taken significant stick from laymen convinced their footballing expertise trumps his, but even they must concede that Manchester United are better now than at any stage in the Post-Fergie Wilderness YearsTM. Though it’s hard to envisage United winning the title, they must attack games as if they intend to, and should they fail, it will not be because they were too cautious. Solskjær’s side are too ruthful in attack and defence, but can offset these weaknesses by dominating opponents in midfield.
