One would have been forgiven to think that the England striker grabbed at least one goal in the big win over the Blades but he was completely overshadowed by his compatriots in attack. Interim Spurs manager Ryan Mason started Kane alongside Welshman Gareth Bale and Son Heung-Min in attack and they both outshone the England national team skipper.

ENGLAND PLAYER STARS FOR ARSENAL

Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka was the star of the show as he helped the Gunners into the round of 16 of the Europa League at the expense of Portuguese giants Benfica. England player Bukayo Saka was the go-to man for Arsenal over the two legs as the Gunners were able to capitalise on his quality to navigate the tricky round of 32 tie with Benfica. With Benfica leading 1-0 in the first leg last week Thursday, Bukayo Saka scored a crucial away goal as hosts Benfica and Arsenal played a 1-1 draw. In the first leg played at the StadioOlimpico in Rome, Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang missed several opportunities but his less experienced teammate Bukayo Saka was able to spare his blushes a bit. Bukayo Saka continued his good form against Benfica into the second leg as he produced two excellent assists to lead the Gunners to a 3-2 win at home to Benfica. With the help of the England national team star, Arsenal were able to record a 4-3 aggregate victory over their Portuguese opposition. Bukayo Saka provided an excellent pass for the aforementioned Pierre-EmerickAubameyang to open the scoring for Arsenal in the second leg at Athens. Arsenal were good value for that lead until Gunners midfielder Dani Ceballos committed a sloppy foul on the edge of the box. Benfica star DiogoGoncalves was on hand to punish the Spanish player from the resulting freekick with two minutes left to play in the first half.Dani Ceballos was culpable for the second Benfica goal scored by Rafa Silva on 57 minutes as he gave the ball away in a dangerous position. At that point, Arsenal needed two goals to qualify for the round of 16 ahead of Benfica. The impressive left-back Kieran Tierney produced a fine finish to equalise for his team towards the midway point of the second half to leave Arsenal within one goal of a place in the next round. England international Bukayo Saka was the man to provide that goalwhen all hopes was almost lost for the Gunners. He delivered with three minutes left for an excellent ball for Aubameyang to score the third goal for Arsenal. The Gunners were able to progress into the last 16 as a result of that late goal.

ENGLAND FOOTBALL NEWS ROUNDUP FEATURING MOURINHO, ALLI, TUCHEL

The latest news roundup coming from the English Premier League is headlined by recent reports that surround the future of midfielder Dele Alli at Tottenham. The English midfielder was close to leaving Spurs as he looked to spark a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino who is now manager at French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

It’s no news that Alli has lost his spot in the Tottenham midfield under manager José Mourinho and has reportedly done everything he can to show that he can still regain his place in the team but to no avail. He had a fall out with Mourinho and has since been either not used or used sparingly whether he is fit to play or not. (more…)

STONES ON TARGET IN BIG WIN

Carabao Cup holders Manchester City made another big statement following their semi-final victory over Manchester United on Wednesday night to follow up on the big victory at Chelsea over the weekend. Manchester City heaped more pressure on underfire Chelsea boss Frank Lampard after they blew his team away in their Premier League clash on Sunday evening. Manchester City ran out 3-1 win at the home of Chelsea with goals from IlkayGundogan, former Blues player Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden, while substitute Callum Hudson-Odoi scored for the home team. The win over Chelsea preceded the victory over Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

Manchester City have been very dominant in the Carabao Cup over the last three seasons and a fourth successive title could be on the cards after the last four win over hosts Manchester United at the Theatre of Dreams last night. After a goalless affair in the first half, Manchester City broke the deadlock through England international John Stones at the start of the second half. The Three Lions of England centre back was rewarded for his fantastic form in the Manchester City defence over the last two months. John Stones has gradually played himself into reckoning as far as the next England squad is concerned. John Stones would be hoping to maintain his form for the Citizens in time to make the next England squad in March 2021. His target would definitely be a spot in the squad for the European Championships this summer. (more…)
