  • Serge Aurier expected to leave if valuation is met

Tottenham are close to signing Matt Doherty from Wolves, with a deal for the right-back expected to be agreed at £12m plus a potential £5m in add-ons.

Doherty’s arrival at Spurs would clear the way for the departure of Serge Aurier, who is wanted by Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco. Tottenham were keen to secure a replacement for the Ivory Coast international before allowing him to leave with Doherty identified as a preferred target for the head coach, José Mourinho, after his excellent performances for Wolves last season.

When Arsenal beat Liverpool at Wembley to seal their first Double

In one glorious week in the 1970-71 season, Arsenal won the league at White Hart Lane and the FA Cup at Wembley

By Richard Foster for the Guardian Sport Network

Given that Liverpool and Arsenal have won so many trophies – 32 leagues titles, 21 FA Cups, 10 League Cups and 30 Community Shields between them – it is a surprise that they have only faced each other at Wembley five times: twice in the Community Shield, once in the League Cup final and twice in the FA Cup finals. The most recent of those FA Cup finals at the national stadium, in 1971, was hugely significant for Arsenal fans as it not only saw them secure their first Double but also emulate their local rivals.

Arsenal went into their final match of the 1970-71 season one point behind league leaders Leeds, who had already completed their domestic campaign. League positions were decided on goal average rather than goal difference at the time, meaning Arsenal had to either win their final match or secure a goalless draw. To make things even more dramatic, their final fixture was a trip to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham.
