Tottenham faces difficulties without Harry Kane
Finishing in 8th place in the 2022/23 Premier League plus losing Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur entered this season with big question marks. “Rooster” tried to attract Luis Enrique, Arne Slot and Julian Nagelsmann but failed. In the end, Ange Postecoglou was the chosen one.
Tottenham in the early stages of the 2023/24 season seems to be under magic and it is Postecoglou who is the “witch” who creates the miracle. So far, the Australian strategist has won the best coach award of the month three times in a row. No other military leader has been able to do this in the foggy country.
The problem on the offensive line is also okay The former Celtic captain found the solution. He pushed Son Heung-min into the slot, supporting right below was rookie James Maddison. The new captain of “Rooster” played very successfully with 8 goals after 11 rounds. Meanwhile, Maddison has had a total of 5 successful passes in the Premier League this season. As a result, Tottenham ranked highest on the rankings before the 11th round.
Cole Palmer’s transfer price is too high
With the intention of finding a new club to have more opportunities to play, Cole Palmer decided to say goodbye to Man City to go to Chelsea. The 21-year-old’s transfer deal will not cause any noise if he comes to Stamford Bridge for a fee of less than £40 million. This large amount of money made Palmer skeptical.
Having just arrived at “The Blues”, Palmer quickly integrated and took a starting position in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad. After 6 appearances from the start, the former Man City midfielder contributed 4 goals and 2 assists. Palmer’s goals came from the penalty spot, but scoring against Arsenal, Tottenham and former team Man City is not an easy task.
Now, when witnessing Palmer’s recent performance, fans will no longer be too concerned about this player’s transfer value. Because he is doing too well, if not excellent, compared to the hundred million Moises Caicedo contract.
Andre Onana will change Manchester United
When Manchester United did not renew David de Gea’s contract last summer, the signal of a changing of the guard certainly took place. Erik ten Hag was not satisfied with the Spanish goalkeeper’s ability to use his feet to coordinate the ball. The Dutch strategist wants to replace it with a more modern goalkeeper, better at playing with his feet, and the name Andre Onana is promoted.
Man United spent £47.2 million to sign the Cameroonian goalkeeper from Inter Milan. Expectations for a transformation in ball deployment from the backline are present in the minds of fans. However, Onana destroyed everything.
The Old Trafford home team lost 9 after 18 matches in all competitions and conceded 30 goals. Onana ranks 19th out of 22 goalkeepers who have appeared in the Premier League this season in terms of total number of successful long passes – terrible statistics for a goalkeeper. There was a time when the former Inter player was scored 4 by Mail Sport, in the clash with Bayern Munich in the first leg of this season’s Champions League.
