It’s a game day in the Premier League.
For the first time in Premier League history, a round of games will be streamed live on Amazon Prime. And one of the biggest games of the midweek schedule comes at Old Trafford, where Manchester United takes on Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
It could be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s final game in charge of Spurs pick up all three points and reports are to be believed. And three points could see Spurs edge ever closer to the top four too. All the build-up to that and everything else that’s been going on around Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the last 24 hours is in our round-up below. Football fans can book Premier League Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Pochettino’s next job
It was tough for Tottenham fans to say goodbye to Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian enjoyed five-and-a-half good years in N17, but things came to an end when he was sacked a couple of weeks ago following a poor start to the season.
And while it was tough for Spurs fans to see him go, it would be even tougher to see him come back – and manager a different Premier League side. But he is a man in demand and that could very well happen.
What does the future hold for out of contract trio Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen? All three are able to talk to foreign clubs next month and strike a pre-contract agreement ahead of a free transfer in the summer.
But could any of them actually stay in north London with Spurs? There is a growing belief that two of the three could yet sign new deals to remain in N17. And Jose Mourinho has been speaking about the discussions that have been taking place between plyers and Chairman Daniel Levy.
Man united lineup
Jose Mourinho has made few changes to his Tottenham starting lineups since arriving at the club. But he faces his first really big test of his tenure on Wednesday night. Spurs go to Manchester United to take on the Portuguese former employers. How will he set his team up? Will it be the first time we see a more defense-minded Mourinho side?
Mourinho has been told he will get a good reception from the Manchester United supporters at Old Trafford. That’s the view of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer anyway, the man who took over from Mourinho after he was sacked last December.
Solskjaer himself is under real pressure now and he knows that if he loses to Mourinho’s rejuvenated Spurs that weight on his shoulders will only intensify. But the United boss has come up with a plan and sent Mourinho and Spurs a warning.
