Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Guardian - man, 16/10/2017 - 11:00

Manchester City resemble the girl with a curl in the middle of her forehead, N’Golo Kanté’s return to Leicester shows Wilfred Ndidi what needs to be done and David Moyes regrets catching the bullet dodged by Mark Hughes

This time last year Southampton paid £4m to sign Charlie Austin from Queens Park Rangers. It was a while before he made an impact, but he certainly made an impact during the early part of this season, scoring nine goals in 19 games. But Southampton’s form has tailed off since Austin suffered a shoulder injury last month. They have lacked a cutting edge and have won only three of their past nine games in all competitions, sinking into the bottom half of the league in the process. Shane Long has rarely been prolific, Jay Rodriguez is still regaining his sharpness after his injury problems and Nathan Redmond is maturing. While Claude Puel’s side dominated for long spells against Burnley, a shortage of ruthlessness left them vulnerable and Joey Barton scored a late winner for the hosts. The outcome might have been different had Austin been available, but he is likely to be out until March. They may have to buy again. Jacob Steinberg

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Guardian - man, 16/10/2017 - 09:38

Anthony Knockaert could make the difference for Brighton, Pablo Zabaleta fed up with West Ham’s ill-discipline and Kevin de Bruyne is drawing more praise

Mark Hughes was in no doubt he had witnessed the favourites for the title. “Clearly I would say that after being beaten 7-2 but they do look significantly better than anybody else in the league in terms of our experience,” he said. Of City’s potential rivals Hughes has guided Stoke to a 1-0 win over Arsenal, a 2-2 draw with Manchester United and endured a 4-0 home reverse against Chelsea. “We’ve faced Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United and we’ve acquitted ourselves fine. But they were just very clinical. The difference was De Bruyne’s understanding of what needed to be done. The quality of his passing, the weight of his passes and his understanding of the angles in terms of releasing people. You can see the reaction of his team-mates. As soon as he gets on the ball they expect him to put the right ball in at the right moment with the right pace. That’s the influence that he has on the team.” Jamie Jackson

The Tottenham striker is driven to better himself, to link his seasons and to use the previous one as the basis to improve the next

When Pep Guardiola referred to Tottenham Hotspur as “the Harry Kane” team, there were people at the London club who did not know whether to laugh or cry. The Manchester City manager, after all, had been in charge of the Lionel Messi team at Barcelona.

Behind the scenes at Tottenham, amid the pot-and-kettle bitching, came a recollection from last season. Had they not beaten Guardiola’s City convincingly at White Hart Lane without the injured Kane?

Christian Eriksen sinks Bournemouth for Spurs’ first Wembley league win

Guardian - lør, 14/10/2017 - 18:11

The Harry Kane team could be grateful to Christian Eriksen. Tottenham Hotspur – to give them the name that the Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, contentiously did not – were desperate for a first Premier League win at Wembley; no title challenge can withstand ropey home form. Thanks to Eriksen, one of their other stellar performers, they got it.

It was a scratchy game and Tottenham were a long way from their best. But Eriksen helped to settle their nerves with what proved to be the winning goal early in the second half, and they can look forward to a big week with optimism. They visit Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night and host Liverpool next Sunday.

• Tottenham manager says comments were ‘sad’ and ‘disrespectful’
• Pochettino claims Guardiola can ‘struggle to be a gentleman’

Mauricio Pochettino has accused Pep Guardiola of showing a lack of respect towards Tottenham Hotspur. The Manchester City manager referred to them as “the Harry Kane team” after his side’s 1-0 victory at Chelsea on 30 September and it was badly received at Tottenham, even though they are proud of their in-form striker’s prominence.

Pochettino described Guardiola’s comment as “sad” and “unnecessary”. There is no love lost between him and Guardiola, with Pochettino even suggesting that his rival “struggles to be a gentleman” when he is on a winning run and riding high. Pochettino also brought up Guardiola’s success at Barcelona, which was inspired by Lionel Messi, and he noted how he had never called them “the Messi team”.
