Tottenham in season of ‘transition’ at Wembley – Mauricio Pochettino

Gab Marcotti says Tottenham’s Champions League performance gives them a boost as the FC crew evaluate their season so far. BURNLEY, England — Mauricio Pochettino has described Tottenham’s season away from home as a period of “transition” and says they are using the year at Wembley to build for the future. Spurs are spending this season at the national stadium while their new 61,500-seater home is being built, and Pochettino began the campaign by talking-up their title chances and pledging to make Wembley “feel like home.” But Spurs have already dropped nine points there — five more than in the whole of last season at White Hart Lane — and they are 21 points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City after 19 games. Although Pochettino ha...

‘Pantomime villain’ Dele Alli feeds off abuse for Tottenham – Harry Kane

Gab Marcotti says Tottenham’s Champions League performance gives them a boost as the FC crew evaluate their season so far. BURNLEY, England — “Pantomime villain” Dele Alli feeds off criticism and abuse to produce his best football, according to Tottenham and England teammate Harry Kane. Alli was subjected to constant boos and chants of “cheat” by the Burnley fans, who were convinced he dived for a 10th-minute penalty — coolly converted by Kane — in Spurs’ 3-0 win at Turf Moor on Saturday. He went on to set-up chances for Kane and Moussa Sissoko before assisting Kane’s hat trick goal with a fine pass to cap his best performance since he scored twice against Real Madrid on Nov. 1. Kane has said that critics motivated him to improve ...

Brighton in talks with Celtic over striker Moussa Dembele – sources

Moussa Dembele won the domestic Treble in his first season at Celtic. Brighton are keen to sign Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, with the two clubs in talks over a move, though both have yet to agree a fee, according to sources close to both clubs.

The former Fulham striker has been linked with a move away from Celtic for some time, with Chelsea, Tottenham and Real Madrid all credited with interest. Brighton boss Chris Hughton told Sky Sports News earlier this month: “He’s a very good player who has had a very good season. He is not our player he just happens to be one of probably 100 names you could mention that I probably would [want].” Dembel...
