Having been linked to a host of Premier League clubs since last season, Alexandre Lacazette’s latest announcement that he will leave Lyon at the end of the season has sparked a furore of rumours with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid all strongly linked to the 25-year old.
In the midst of such speculation, a latest Instagram activity of one particular Liverpool player has caught the interest of many eagle-eyed fans on social media.
Dejan Lovren recently started following the French striker and if that was not enough went on to like a couple of Lacazette’s photos.
While Lovren’s action certainly do not guarantee a Liverpool move for Lacazette, the timing is surely interesting as they have known each other for a long time now since their Lyon days.
But the Croat only decided to make the move on Instagram after Lacazette’s announcement. Check out the screenshot of the activity below –
There are no two opinions on the fact that a major chunk of credit of Tottenham’s success this season goes to Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs, led by the Argentine manager, held on to the second position behind champions Chelsea and were the only other credible contenders to the Premier League title this season.
Where many other great managers faltered, Pochettino ably helped his side keep Chelsea on their feet right till the last game and he deserves accolades for the same.
Sky Sports, on the other hand, probably disagrees. The channel has snubbed Pochettino previously while showing managers’ faces on their montages, and the exact same thing happened in the build up to the last week of the season.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino’s 15 year old son has now officially signed a contract with the club.
Despite falling short of the Premier League title twice in a row, none can argue as to the tremendous work that Mauricio Pochettino has done at Tottenham ever since his arrival from Southampton four years ago.
It then understandably came as a pleasant development to Spurs fans when Tottenham announced that Pochettino had signed a new contract at the club.
The flipside though was that it was Pochettino’s 15-year-old son Maurizio Pochettino who had signed the contract and not the senior Pochettino.
Pochettino junior who plays as a winger officially signed the dotted line after impressing the coaching staff and looks set to be drafted into the Spurs U—16 side.
Red Bull may give you wings, but Carabao gets you something a lot more than that.
Chelsea’s official beverage partner Carabao took advantage of the Blues’ recent Premier League title to take pot shots at their market rivals with a picture of one of their green apple flavoured cans brandishing a Chelsea scarf.
Accompanying the can on the company’s Twitter account was a cheeky caption aimed at Red Bull’s tagline: “Red Bull gives you wings!”
Carabao have been one of Chelsea’s largest corporate sponsors after signing a deal worth £30 million last year, and the club’s recent title is surely going to benefit the company as well.
Brilliant marketing, this. Check out the image and the caption used on the tweet below –
With second spot all but guaranteed, one would have been forgiven for thinking that Tottenham would take it easy at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.
Yet a brilliant performance from the Tottenham team saw them steamroll past Leicester City with most ease.
While the plaudits obviously went to four goal hero Harry Kane, Tottenham’s midfield proved key in setting up Spurs dominance in the match as Spurs thoroughly won the midfield battle.
One instance of the match than exemplified this when Spurs defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama easily won the ball from his opposite counterpart Wilfred Ndidi and proceeded to take the Leicester City midfielder on a bamboozling merry go round ride.

The Celtic-Rangers rivalry is undoubtedly one of the fiercest rivalries in football. While Celtic have dominated over their Glasgow rivals in recent seasons, the rivalry remains as fierce as ever.
As such it came as surprise to many when current Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers claimed that a Gers fan approached him in April saying his thanks to Rodgers.
The story was widely ridiculed by both sets of fans with many finding it incredulous. A month forward now and comedian Darren Farley in his latest impersonation video took the mickey out of Brendan Rodgers with regards to his story.
Impersonating Rodgers in the video, Farley goes on to tell incredulous stories of how every Rangers fan love him in Glasgow and the episode makes for a rather hilarious watch.
