What Eintracht Frankfurt have taught us against Tottenham

Someone stop time so Harry Kane can rest: The Tottenham star striker looks like he could use a freshening up. Since the beginning of September, Kane has played 270 of 270 minutes in the UEFA Champions League, 180 of 180 minutes for England and 708 of 720 minutes in the Premier League. Yes, big players play most of their teams’ minutes. And yes, Kane is the second leading scorer in the Premier League. But the idea of ​​Tottenham’s depth should be just to alternate a bit between Son Heung-Min, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski.

Tottenham didn’t get knocked out. a fait accompli, but it normal: Spurs have taken four of nine points in Group D, beating Marseille at home and losing to Sporting Lisbon in Portugal. The group is overflowing with three points separating Sporting Lisbon in first place and OM in last place, but Spurs are one of only two teams with a couple of home games left on the list, and this gives them a great chance to qualify for the playoffs. -off.

Key pre-game storylines

Group D remains eminently winning for the Spurs, who have picked up three points in their first two games. Sporting lead the group with six, but there are still four games to go, including the second leg in north London on 26 October. the most difficult matches (Tottenham and Sporting away) of the second half of the group stage.


Uniform players to keep an eye on

Despite some (minor) frustrations with Tottenham’s more defensive playing style under Conte, it’s worth noting that they only failed to score one goal all season (losing to Sporting). Harry Kane leads the Premier League with seven goals, including one against Arsenal, after Son Heung-min’s hat-trick against the Foxes before the international break. Finally not up to par this season and currently locked in the starting position as Dejan Kulusevski struggles with a hip injury. Richarlison scored his first two goals for Tottenham in a home win against Marseille, but since then the Brazilian has not scored or assisted in three consecutive matches (all starts).

Chelsea v AC Milan results: Graham Potter’s Blues put on their best game to date (for a long, long time) by beating reigning Serie A champions AC Milan 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Wesley Fofana, who was injured later in the first half, opened the scoring by opening his Chelsea scoring in the 24th minute. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the second game in a row to make it 2-0, with Rhys James adding a third just after the hour mark.

Chelsea dribbled smoothly and comfortably (to be expected from a team that Potter coached) but gave Milan almost nothing (only three shots in 90 minutes) defensively, as they often tried to do under previous boss Thomas Tuchel.


What we learned from the match Chelsea against AC Milan

Chelsea squad more in line with Potter’s style than Tuchel’s

It’s easy to say this based on results alone (2W-1D-0L), but it’s quick enough to look over the lineup list to see that the vast majority of the players currently at the club are ill-suited to counters. attacking football both with and without the ball.

Aubameyang is known to have the straight-line speed needed to penetrate defenses (remember, he only played one game under Tuchel), but all the other forwards (Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic) are technical players. who excel in combination play and steady possession of the ball. Much the same is true in midfield, where N’Golo Kante can no longer cover every blade of grass, and Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have been erroneously seen as mostly stationary back line defenders with nothing but ball-handling defenders. (both central and wide).

Everyone seems to be much happier as they express something more like their true selves as players and the results will only add to the good vibes currently radiating out of west London.
