Son, Lloris clash as Spurs beat Everton.

Published

on

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min was involved in a furious row with team-mate Hugo Lloris at half-time in their side’s 1-0 win against Everton on Monday.

As Son walked towards the players’ tunnel at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, France goalkeeper Lloris confronted the South Korea star, shouting at him and shoving his shoulder. The usually placid Son responded angrily and the pair had to be kept apart by team-mates Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko as the altercation threatened to boil over. It seemed Tottenham captain Lloris was irked by Son’s failure to close down a loose ball in midfield moments before Everton threatened through Richarlison. Neither of the feuding players was hauled off at the break as Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho tried to keep the peace.

Son and Lloris looked to have buried the hatchet when they hugged at the final whistle after Tottenham secured their second win since the coronavirus hiatus. Mourinho’s men sealed the points thanks to a first half own goal from Everton defender Michael Keane, who deflected in Giovani Lo Celso’s shot. Tottenham’s second win in their last 10 games in all competitions lifted them into eighth place in the Premier League one point behind north London rivals Arsenal in seventh. Just a year after reaching the Champions League final under previous boss Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham have been reduced to fighting for a place in the Europa League.

 

This win ensured they could still avoid being out of European competition entirely for the first time since the 2009-10 season.

 

Since Carlo Ancelotti’s first game in charge of Everton on Boxing Day, only Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City have earned more Premier League points than the Toffees.

Liverpool clinch monumental victory against Leicester City with a 3-0 victory

Published

Liverpool despite all odds came out tops in what was a totally dominating game against Leicester City.

 

The Reds showed why they are the defending champions with a superb display of attacking football even at the expense of losing six first team players.

 

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Oxlade Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and top score for the Reds this season Mo Salh were all out prior to this game, due to injury reservations.

 

But Jurgern Klopp’s side still proved what they were made of with a scoreline of 3-0 against former champions Leicester City.

 

An own goal coming from Jonny Evans at the 21st minute opened the scoring for the Reds, while later on the first half Diogo Jota doubled their lead with a sublime finish that went past Kasper Schmeicel.

 

The Foxes did try to lunge at the Reds, but the defensive manuvers brought forth by youngster Curtis Jones blocked every tactic they used.

 

Jamie Vardy was totally frustrated throughout the game, as Liverpool cut him off from all forms of creative touches, leaving the striker zoned out throughout the game.

 

The second 45 saw a penalty appeal for Liverpool when Namaplays Mendy fouled Jota in the box, that wad not given while the injury crises at Anfield increases as Naby Keita was taken off on account of a sprain.

 

Roberto Firmino also made his mark by giving Liverpool the last and winning goal at the 80th minute, converting a James Milner freekick and heading home with a goal for him, after his lack of goals this season.

 

This game makes it Liverpool’s 64th victory at Anfield- an unprecendented record for Klopp’s men, and also sees them go to second place, behind Tottenham Hotspur.

 

 

Liverpool and Leicester both have midweek games in European Competitions, and will return to the Premier League as Leicester take on Fulham while the defending champions battle against Brighton.
