Speaking with Gary Lineker on The Premier League Show about whether the style of English football has stopped the Three Lions from competing, he replied: 'I don't think so. In Germany there's strong physicality, and the counter attack there is a strong weapon. Brace yourself for Round 2 of the Manchester Mind Games Derby the next time Mourinho is anywhere near a microphone, or if you're more of a "let's settle this where is counts" kind of a fan, on 9 December when they meet at Old Trafford.

- October 01, 2017

Glenn Hoddle, recently voted Tottenham's greatest player, said Kane could become the club's best-ever striker, an opinion shared by Pochettino. "He has the quality and capacity to play and use the demand of the game and read it". "I think he's improving a lot, but still it's something he has to learn about".

There was flag on the play, and Brady began indicating it would be a defensive pass interference penalty. A flag was thrown, but it was later waived off when the officials determined that the ball, which was intercepted by Panthers defensive back Robert Lester, was not catchable (it was underthrown and Gronkowski would have had a hard time getting back to it).

And if the Red Sox lose their remaining two games and the Yankees win theirs, the Yankees would host a one-game playoff for the division on Monday, with Luis Severino lined up for that start. If he did not pitch on Saturday, Sabathia would have been available out of the bullpen Tuesday, according to Girardi.

- September 30, 2017

Head coach Gregg Popovich spoke to the media about the injury on Saturday, indicating the injury stems from past year. It's gone a little more slowly than we thought. Popovich said Leonard's quadriceps injury has nothing to do with the ankle injury he sustained in the playoffs last season. A seventh-year veteran, Leonard averaged 25.5 points and 5.8 rebounds last season on the way to making his second All-Star Game, in addition to earning recognition as a first-team All-NBA player.

- September 30, 2017

Thomas Meunier, Edinson Cavani , Julian Draxler and Kylian Mbappe were all on target too, as the Paris powerhouses ensured they became the league's only side to move to eight games unbeaten. Bordeaux created a few chances and looked to have some fight in them, but that was soon snuffed out when PSG's full-back and Belgian worldwide Thomas Meunier joined the party as he swept home from the edge of the area to put PSG seemingly out of sight by only the 21st minute.

West Brom boss Pulis excited by Krychowiak potential West Brom boss Pulis excited by Krychowiak potential
- September 30, 2017

Pulis believes Krychowiak is so good, he can play in a two-man midfield that allows him to keep those two forwards and return to a back four. West Brom had to weather quite a storm as Watford pushed forward searching for the equaliser and at least maintaining their unbeaten away record - Richarlison sending his header just wide of the post.

It remains to be seen if the Italian can be won over, however, with Batshuayi coming off the bench to net a crucial victor against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this week.

This may not be a big sack-total game for players like Michael Bennett and Frank Clark. "I mean, the last time that I actually really got down in a stance like that and hit somebody was against Detroit, so it's been seven, eight weeks or so". (more...)
