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…)
Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has praised the progress of teammate Marcus Rashford during the course of the current season. The England international had found himself in-and-out of the first XI under ex-boss Jose Mourinho but the same has not been the case with caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has featured him regularly from the starting lineup.
As such, he has found form with five goals and an assist in the past seven matches and this has impressed Mata, who has urged the youngster to keep up with the good work. “To win seven games from a possible seven is not a simple task in any way, so we are proud and happy with how things have gone in recent weeks. But we want more,” he wrote on his official website.
