Tottenham Hotspur U19s progressed to the next round of the UEFA Youth League match after winning the penalty shootout against Monaco on Wednesday.
Keanan Bennetts was one of the standout performers on the pitch for Spurs and it was his goal that setup the penalty shootout.
And what a goal it was from the 18-year-old as he pulled off a roulette and a chop before curling a great shot to get Spurs level.
Definitely deserves some first team involvement, check out the goal from the Spurs youngster below –
Leeds United, under new manager Paul Heckingbottom, pulled off an incredible comeback after going down two-nil in the first half.
Some brilliant finishing from Pierre-Michel Lasogga and Kemar Roofe earned Leeds United a vital point at Elland Road but a special mention should also go the fans present at the ground.
The passion from the fans clearly got through to the team as the last 20 minutes were incredible and everyone at the stadium minus the Bristol City contingent were probably disappointed that they didn’t came away with a win in the end.
2-0 down with no hope and Elland Road was rocking, check out the incredible noise from the Leeds fans below –
Davinson Sanchez showed why Spurs paid mega money for him in the summer as the Colombian pulled off a neat piece of skill during the North London derby against Arsenal today.
Tensions are always running high during a clash between Spurs & Arsenal and it takes quite a bit of courage to show off sick tekkers. The 6’2″ defender did exactly that as he executed a brilliant Cruyff turn during a moment in the game.
The 21-year-old was less than impressive during the 2-2 draw against Liverpool last weekend but more than made up for it with a solid display against Arsenal.
Probably learned the skill during his time at Ajax, check out the quick feet from the Spurs new boy below –
Spurs media team released a footage of new signing Lucas Moura going through the paces in training before the FA Cup clash against Newport County and one can already feel the impact he might have in this already talented squad.
Spurs have been crying out for a game-changer from the bench for a while now and the Brazilian can be exactly that for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, given his pace and the ability to take on players.
The video below gives a glimpse of the array of skills Moura posseses as the former PSG man ended Victor Wanyama with a backheel nutmeg and went past Toby Alderweireld & Kyle Walker-Peters like they weren’t even there during a move.
Move away Dele Alli, there’s a new nutmeg specialist in town, check out the video below –
Truly touching scenes in the away dressing room at Anfield
Harry Kane’s fantastic achievement of reaching 100 goals in the Premier League was a special occasion for every one involved with Spurs, none more so than the players and the first team coaching staff.
And the forward showed his gratitude towards his teammates & the staff as he went hugging everyone inside the room before delivering a fantastic speech.
The fans should especially like his moment with Heung-Min Son & Erik Lamela at the end – would probably be good enough to make grown men cry.
Kudos to the media team at Spurs for making such a wholesome video, check it out below –
It was an eventful night for Kane, who missed one penalty but scored another to make sure Spurs went home with at least a point against Liverpool.
Veteran Rangers defender Bruno Alves put in an impressive shift on his first start under interim manager Graeme Murty as Rangers recorded a resounding 3-0 win over Aberdeen on Thursday.
The 36-year-old, making a return from a back injury was instrumental in helping Rangers keep a clean sheet with a dominant performance at the back. Apart from the obvious job of putting in the tackles and marshalling the defence, Alves also came up with what was a superb clearance turned no-look pass towards the end of the first half.
A spectacular passage of passing from Aberdeen saw Stevie May dangerously marauding down on the wing only for the ever-vigilant Alves to intercept the pass with the back of his head.
Intentional or not, surely worth a watch. Check out the moment below –
One of the notable talking points from Leicester’s home tie against Spurs was the subjugation of Jamie Vardy to some x-rated abuse from the Spurs fans.
The striker came under the hammer from the Spurs faithful as they dished out a brutal chant over his wife Rebecca Vardy’s involvement in the UK reality TV show ‘I’m a celeb…Get me out of here’.
Vile as the chant was, it was instant karma for those singing the chants as Vardy got one over the opposition fans in the most emphatic of ways scoring the opening goal for Leicester City in the midst of the chants.
A smug Vardy then went on to celebrate the goal by cupping his ears to the silenced opposition fans.
Check out the chanting from Spurs fans below –
When it comes to football rivalries, the ‘War of the Roses’ rivalry between Manchester United and Leeds United is undoubtedly one of the fiercest and ugliest.
And while the intensity of the rivalry may have waned over the ensuing years of Leeds’ struggles in the lower echelons of English football, the rivalry remains very much significant to this day as evidenced by some Man United fans belting out anti-Leeds chants in the game against Watford yesterday.
Despite the vast majority of the Manchester United support continuing to casually brush off the Leeds rivalry as a thing of the past, the chants just go on to show that the rivalry still matters very much to the former.
Check out the video of the United fans singing “We all hate Leeds s***” last night –
Following Sunday’s 2-0 triumph over Motherwell in the Betfred Cup final, the mood around Celtic was certainly ecstatic as Celtic added yet another piece of domestic silverware to their bulging trophy cabinet.
And in the midst of all the ecstasy, Hoops defensive midfielder Nir Bitton seemed particularly over-zealous for engaging in some banter as the 26-year-old was seen directing an x-rated comment towards a teammate on Instagram.
As Leigh Griffiths took the time to convey some sober words on Instagram, Bitton jumped in calling Griffiths a ‘wee tadger’ with tadger allegedly a Glasgow slang for a man’s manhood.
Check out a screenshot of Bitton’s comment below –
While every team in the English Championship do command huge respective followings, few teams in the division can boast of a support as staunch and voracious as Leeds United.
Fans of the Yorkshire club turn up week in and week out in almost fanatical devotion to the club throughout the season. And the Leeds fans were terrific support yet again on Saturday as Leeds recorded a morale-boosting 2-0 win away at Barnsley.
The unrelenting support rendered by the fans was perhaps best highlighted by an iconic pic of sorts doing the rounds on social media.
Taken at the away end, the picture features the very vocal Leeds fans arms raised in jubilation against the picturesque background of coloured smoke emanating from canisters.
Kudos to the photographer who took the picture, check it out below –
