EVANS EXPECTED TO PARTNER MAGUIRE AT LEICESTER

There are lot of claims making the round in England that Coach Claude Puel should play Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans as a central pair. Leicester played well against Manchester United in the opening game. However they lost 2-1.

With the team looking to do better this season, a strong defensive pair is crucial. Maguire and Evans can partner to deliver this. Maguire partnered Wes Morgan at Old Trafford in the first game. But the 34-year old Morgan that played was far from the club legend that helped the club win the Premier League in 2016.

Sean Dyche confirms that Danny Ings will probably be leaving Burnley

Sean Dyche confirms that Danny Ings will probably be leaving Burnley

The coach of Burnley, Sean Dyche has confirmed that Danny Ings is very likely to be making his way out of the relegated club during this summer as there are a number of clubs interested in signing the 22 year old forward.

At the age of 22, Danny Ings made a total of 35 Premier League appearances in this season for Burnley and he managed to find the back of the net on 11 occasions. This has been enough for the young player to attract the attention and interest of big clubs including: Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Sociedad as they all have shown interest in signing Danny Ings during the summer transfer window.

Even the manager of the team believes that it will be very difficult to keep hold of Danny Ings at Burnley beyond the summer transfer window as the interested clubs are ready to offer enticing offers for the player in order to sign him as fast as possible and the player himself wants to face a bigger challenge, this won’t happen if he stays at Burnley as the club has been relegated to the Championship League.

Burnley’s Sean Dyche revealed the current situation surrounding Danny Ings as the English coach said: “Who knows if he’ll stay probably not, just by the nature of his situation. Possibly? Who knows? I just think he wants a fresh challenge and a bigger challenge; He certainly wants to be in the Premier League so does everyone. He has nicked a good goal and I thought he could have had another. He has played a big part over the last couple of years. He gets a lot of the headlines and I understand why but I wouldn’t single him out against the rest of the group.”

SPURS ARE THROUGH

SPURS ARE THROUGH

Tottenham Hotspur sealed their ticket into the knockout rounds of the UEFA Europa League after defeating Partizan Belgrade with a narrow 1-0 victory with Benjamin Stambouli scoring the only goal of the entire match at the 49th minute.

The match however, had to be stopped on a few occasions after several individuals made their way into the pitch of the White Hart Lane Stadium and security guards chased them around for some moments before the match could continue rolling on. The referee, Yevhen Aranovskiy had to suspend the game on a few instances due to the fans getting their way into the playing grounds.

On September, Partizan Belgrade was banned due to their fans displaying an anti-Semitic banner and the club received a partial stadium closure but this time around it was Tottenham Hotspur which has been hit with sanctions due to their own fans entering the pitch on occasions.

Due to all the incidents which occurred in the match, UEFA has now opened a case that will force Tottenham on having to step up and face the consequences in what seemed to be a marketing stunt as all 3 pitch invaders were wearing T-shirts that promoted a company that creates official Tottenham merchandise.

All of the pitch invaders were arrested following the incident and the Premier League club, Tottenham Hotspur later went on apologizing to fans for the behavior of those people involved in the incident and for all of the problems that it might have caused.

A disciplinary panel is expected to judge which charges will be made towards Tottenham Hotspurs on December 11.

Recently, a series of rather bizarre or unexpected events have been occurring involving Tottenham as this incident with the pitch invaders isn’t the only thing which has popped up lately.

The White Hart Lane Stadium is being redeveloped and a business which is right next to the football building was set on fire. According to the owner of the Archway Sheet Metal factory, the fire was started by fans of Tottenham as he has already been receiving death threats.

The owner of the business is opposing the decision of the authorities of Tottenham on building a new £100m stadium and he has now revealed that things are getting dangerous for him after having received death threats and now a huge fire happened right in the last piece of land which is needed to expand the stadium. The club has tried to buy this site for over 10 years.

Ulloa under too much pressure?

Ulloa under too much pressure?

Leicester City appear to be going through their first real test of poor form this campaign. The team has scored only two goals in the last four matches and it seems that they are struggling with the increased spotlight on striker Leonardo Ulloa. The striker was signed in the summer for £ 8 million and he has already started showing signs of being a Premier League top marksman. Despite playing for a team that was expected to struggle in the bottom half of the table, Ulloa has already scored five goals. This league tally is better than the likes of Wayne Rooney have achieved this campaign.

Nigel Pearson accepts that there will be much more focus on Ulloa, as teams try to stop him from scoring. However, he expects the quality of the South American to shine through. Pearson is also aware that the club will not be putting their entire focus on Ulloa further goals. He says that the team will have to share the burden of scoring goals over the course of the campaign since every striker will go through a patch where they find it difficult to score goals. This weekend, Leicester take on Swansea away from home. This is a match where they will definitely look to take at least point.

“I’ve not noticed any shift; he’s a quiet sort of man and a likeable guy and his outlook hasn’t changed. He certainly hasn’t had any extra pressure put on him from within. My view on strikers is goals are what they are about but the way we play, we need forward-thinking players who also understand how the team functions. Leo has settled in very well and has had an outstanding start in terms of goal return. His all-round play has been excellent,” said the Leicester City boss.

Jovetic Happy with first team time

Jovetic Happy with first team time

Manchester City have been giving a number of opportunities to Stevan Jovetic this season, which is surprising considering that the former Fiorentina forward was largely a substitute throughout last campaign. Despite brought in for around £ 22 million last summer, he featured in only 16 matches throughout the campaign. Even though his record of six goals in these matches bodes well, Jovetic often found himself on the bench during the presence of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, and Alvaro Negredo. This campaign, however, Jovetic has been a key man for the Premier League champions.

He has featured in two out of the three league matches played by City, while more importantly, he has two goals to his name. The injury concerns surrounding Sergio Aguero have meant that manager Manuel Pellegrini does not have many options up front. On transfer deadline day, the club decided to allow Alvaro Negredo to join Valencia on a season-long loan deal which is set to be made permanent. This leaves Pellegrini with three main strikers in his squad with one of them being Jovetic. The 24-year-old says that he is happy with the regular game think he has been getting this season, which shows that Pellegrini has a lot of faith in him.

“Last season I had so many problems. I was late into preparation and I just could not catch my teammates. And then there were all those injuries. Just as I recovered I would get hurt again. But I guess there were things that I was doing right, because the club wanted me to stay. They believed in me – president, manager, teammates. And it means a lot. They told me they want me to stay for which I’m very grateful. I know what I can do and how much I can give my club,” said Jovetic.
