He’s a serial winner. Wherever he goes he wins trophies, that’s a fact. “Whatever team he puts out [against Boro] will be a team he fully expects to win and it’s obvious the FA Cup is something he has an eye on. “The top four is harder now but when [Mourinho] took over we were 12 points behind [Chelsea] and we got it to three. We maybe took one step back but we have shown we can close the gap.” Spurs’ “step back” came in their last Premier League outing when they suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to table-topping Liverpool. Mourinho’s side had their chances in that game, with Rose looking to take positives from it heading into an important run of fixtures across multiple competitions. The England international left-back added: “It felt like one of the better performances we had over the Christmas period. Everyone’s gutted that we weren’t clinical enough to take one of our chances. “What hurts the most was that it was just a case of a lack of concentration from a throw-in. We managed to sort of control their world-class front three.” Read Also:Mourinho: I’m Not Jealous Of Man City, Liverpool While Tottenham did a decent job of containing Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the latter did net the only goal of the game to keep Spurs eighth in the table and nine points adrift of the top four. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Jose Mourinho wins trophies “wherever he goes”, says Danny Rose, with the Portuguese expected to have Tottenham as serious challengers for the FA Cup in 2020. Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho Spurs stumbled at the first hurdle in that competition this season, with a third-round replay due to be taken in with Middlesbrough on Tuesday. Edging past Championship opposition in north London would keep them in the hunt for major silverware, with Southampton waiting at the next stage. Mourinho is expected to prioritise domestic cup glory, with the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss having fared admirably in knockout tournaments before. His CV is littered with major silverware and he was appointed as successor to Mauricio Pochettino with the intention of delivering long-awaited success for Spurs. Rose believes the 56-year-old will end a barren run, but says Tottenham’s mindset has not changed despite former manager Pochettino having previously been quoted as saying that the Premier League title and Champions League are the only “real trophies”. “I’m not sure that Mauricio did [prioritise the League and Champions League],” Rose said. “Whoever we played, Mauricio wanted to win. Whatever team he put out, he fully believed that team could win.last_img read more

Morrison progress pleases Allardyce

first_img The 20-year-old was one of the stars of United’s fabled youth system but was limited to just three first-team outings for the Red Devils as his life off of the field began to overshadow his undoubted talent on it. A thirst for first-team involvement saw Morrison move to Upton Park and, after a season on loan at Birmingham last year, the precocious talent has started to show through in the Barclays Premier League. West Ham boss Sam Allardyce believes he signed a boy in former Manchester United teenager Ravel Morrison but that the midfielder will return to Old Trafford on Saturday as a man. Morrison is West Ham’s top goalscorer this season with five and Allardyce feels the player has developed so much over a short period of time that he will be completely different when he lines up against United for the first time on Saturday. “Sir Alex (Ferguson) let Ravel go for his own benefit,” he said. “He (Ferguson) said that if he comes down to you hopefully he will find a new life and a new way of living. “His ability will then start to come through because all he asks and all he wants in his life is to play first-team football, that was all he said he wanted to do and why he wanted to leave. “In actual fact he struggled to look like he was capable of playing football in the first team with us. That’s why we sent him on loan to Birmingham and I thought since that year he’s grown up. “Somewhere along the line the lad has woken up and I think he’s changed himself and delivered.” Allardyce admitted it was Ferguson’s expectation of the player Morrison could become that was the simple deciding factor on his striking a deal to take the player to east London. “Fergie told me about his talent and that was it,” he said. “That’s enough for me. (Ferguson said) “If you can sort this lad out, Sam, you’ll have one of the best players you’ve ever had”. I don’t need anything more than that do I?” Morrison has been a shining light in an underwhelming season so far for West Ham, who will be hoping Wednesday’s 2-1 Capital One Cup quarter-final success at Tottenham can kick-start their league campaign. But even Morrison has off days and Allardyce is keen to keep him focused and unlock the match-winning potential as often as possible, with a warning that he should not try and steal the show against his former club. “The expectation becomes “will it come every single week” and that can’t really happen at such a young age,” Allardyce added. “It’s nice if it does. We’ve got to manage the situation and just try and keep encouraging him. “I think from our point of view, if he gets selected for Old Trafford on Saturday, that the real message from me to him would be to try and get a result as a team and play one of your top performances in a team situation when you would help to get us that result by using your abilities in a team performance. “When you’ve got his ability there is going to be the temptation to go out and show “look at me” I think and I have to try and guard and avoid that situation.” Morrison is likely to feature after starting on the bench against Spurs and, with captain Kevin Nolan still suspended – and a host of other first-team players sidelined or working back to full fitness – Allardyce is limited in terms of options.

Lennon helps Toffees bounce back

first_img The defeat is QPR’s fifth in a row since Chris Ramsey was confirmed as permanent manager just over a month ago and it places added importance on their next two matches away to fellow strugglers West Brom and Aston Villa. Everton, who bowed out of the Europa League to Dynamo Kiev on Thursday, may start looking up the table as two consecutive league victories, combined with a kind looking run-in, should see Roberto Martinez’s side avoid a nail-biting relegation scrap. Rangers set their stall out early with a number of long balls into the away side’s penalty area and the direct approach caused problems as Bobby Zamora, Nedum Onuoha and Charlie Austin all went close. Everton came through a bruising opening quarter unscathed, however, and in the 18th minute the visitors opened the scoring with their first meaningful attack. Arouna Kone’s cut-back arrived at the feet of Leon Osman who, turning down the chance to shoot, played right to Coleman and the full-back’s guided finish flew into the net off the far post. Undeterred, Rangers continued to float balls up for Zamora, but they wouldn’t drop for the striker, whose only clear-cut chance came from an Austin cross shortly after the half-hour and he failed to connect with the header. The start of the second half brought no respite for Everton, who had the linesman’s flag to thank when Junior Hoilett’s bending effort hit the bar and Zamora eventually bundled home the rebound. The visitors, unable to impose their usual possession game, dropped deeper and deeper into their own area and in the 64th minute, Rangers found the breakthrough. Press Association Aaron Lennon scored a late winner as Everton beat QPR 2-1 to move nine points clear of the relegation zone and deal a heavy blow to Rangers’ own hopes of survival. Seamus Coleman’s excellent finish put Everton ahead against the run of play in the first half before substitute Eduardo Vargas slammed home a Rangers equaliser shortly after the hour. The hosts piled forward in search of a winner but Lennon provided a sucker-punch 13 minutes from time with his first goal for the Toffees to give Everton a much-needed victory that leaves Rangers four points adrift of safety. Everton failed to clear Joey Barton’s corner and in the ensuing chaos the ball ended up with Vargas, who thrashed the ball into the roof of the net from close range. The hosts could have made it two soon after when Zamora broke free of Phil Jagielka but with only the keeper to beat, the Rangers striker blazed over. The missed opportunity would prove costly as the Toffees restored their advantage in the 77th minute. Coleman’s cross was half-cleared by Onuoha under pressure from Kone, but the ball fell straight to Lennon who side-footed home for his first goal in an Everton shirt. The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Rangers but there was still one final chance in injury-time as a long ball up-field spilled out to Adel Taarabt. The Moroccan ‘s shot look destined for the far corner but instead it clipped the bar and sailed over to send the home supporters away deflated again. last_img read more

Monaco captain not surprised by Anthony Martial’s start for Manchester United

first_imgAnthony Martial has made a remarkable start to life in the Barclays Premier League, but neither Monaco captain Jeremy Toulalan nor manager Leonardo Jardim have been surprised by the Manchester United striker’s early success. Louis van Gaal’s United forked out an eye-watering amount at the end of the transfer window to coax the 19-year-old from the principality. Monaco could end up receiving as much as £58million for the striker, but becoming the most expensive teenager of all time appears to have added little pressure on Martial. A remarkable solo debut effort against Liverpool has been followed up by several more impressive displays, taking his tally to four goals in six matches. Martial’s immediate success has shocked many onlookers, but not his former captain at Monaco. “No, it is not a surprise for me,” Toulalan said when asked by Press Association Sport. “Anthony has got a lot of qualities. “He is a good man and he will have a lot of success in Manchester. “For Anthony, to be honest, it was difficult to refuse an offer like this. I am happy for him, he plays well at Manchester United.” Martial moved to the principality from Lyon in 2013, making 70 appearances and scoring 15 goals for Monaco before heading to Old Trafford. Jardim, like Toulalan, completely understood the striker’s desire to move on and has not been surprised by the way he has begun life at United. “Anthony is a young, very good player,” the Monaco boss said on the eve of the Europa League tie with Tottenham. “Last year he played bad in the beginning of the season and after worked a lot physically and mentally. “When you work in a club like Monaco with good methods and a good team, it is easy to improve and to go to a big European club.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
