    Actually that’s highly unlikely to be fair.

    Still figuring it out.

    Article: Tottenham endured one of the most embarrassing nights in their history as they were beaten by the lowest-ranked team in the Europa Conference League, losing 2-1 to Mura in Maribor.

    Sorry you are right, think we may finish 3rd but we have a bunch of shit fixtures towards the end of the season. Also I dont fully trust us, we seem to be leaking too many goals this season.

    What happened to Dele Alli? Just checked and he's "only" 25 yrs old. Surely he can't waste his career like that?

    Probably a ploy to make sure Levy opens his checkbook in January, but reading this did make me chuckle. Not often you see the manager basically admit his team is more shit than he realized.

    He also sounds like he’s debating out loud whether he should just jack it in.

    He’s had a purple patch early in his career and reverted to his actual talent level.

    I kinda think he could succeed if he was the big fish in the small pond. All players best as number 10s are fucked though - see also Coutinho, Neymar. The formations that suit these players best aren't being used by many teams

    He needs to go to Italy. They still have a need for #10's/second strikers and his athleticism will give him an advantage there. Go to Torino or Empoli and see if he can rebuild his career.

    Yeah I think you're right - but there's no way they are paying what he's probably on. Same with Maddison and Cantwell though - clearly good players but not really a space for them

    Probably United now they've sorted out a decent interim. It's a tough gig, but any half decent manager should pull that United squad to the top four.

    Other than Son, my impression of most Spurs players is they're either brain-dead, disinterested in winning, or a combination of the both. I'm not convinced the mentality and quality is there for Conte to extract enough from them. They just lost to some farmers in the Europa League.

    And he came out and said he didn’t realise how bad they were but will stay. Says it all.

    Arsenal. Continuing to make impressive strides under Mikel Arteta both offensively & defensively. The Gunners have gained 68.75% of their points at the Emirates, taking 22 from a possible 27. No other team in the league has won more points or more games as hosts.

    [​IMG]

    West Ham. Champions League hopes are waning. In winning just one of their last six, David Moyes' depleted side have averaged 0.83 Expected Goals For per game. As a result, the festive period becomes hugely important for their aspirations.

    Manchester United. Their defence has been woeful, allowing an average of 1.74 xGA per game. Only five teams have conceded more chances per game & they have David de Gea to thank for keeping them in the top four hunt. Expect continued improvement under Ralf Rangnick in 2022.

    Tottenham. Often a habitual over-performer of underlying numbers, it's curious to see Harry Kane struggle with a finishing slump. He has now scored just 2 goals from 4.6 Expected Goals in the Premier League this term, netting only one of the 8 'big chances' (0.35 xG+)

    [​IMG]


    Leicester. Only five teams have a higher Expected Goals Against total than the Foxes (28.2 xGA), despite them playing one fewer game than four of the other five. Defending corners has been a particular weakness for Brendan Rodgers' side, conceding more xG than any other club:

    Those distance covered stats is all that could be which separates CL from Europa.

    Hell of an achievement if Conte pulls it off.
