Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Mourinho was sacked from Manchester United on Tuesday following strings of poor results and with Pochettino seen as the ideal replacement at Old Trafford, the Argentine insists he is focused on delivering his best at Tottenham Hotspur. One factor in their favour is the lack of a buy-out clause in the five-year contract that he signed last May.

"They were very impressive in the 4-2 win against Spurs but they had a fully-fit back line, which they are not going to have this time around". "He's done an incredible job and I think he's the outstanding candidate". My business is trying to ensure the best job at this club. Yes he has been supported in the transfer market to a level, but it is a hard club at a time when others are doing things better.

Mesut Ozil looks to have been handed a one-way ticket out of the Emirates after Arsenal manager Unai Emery failed to include the German in his squad for the Tottenham game, due to "tactical reasons".

Ozil can now be backed at a tempting looking 11/2 to leave Arsenal next month, while it's Man Utd who are the 9/1 favourites to snap him up, in what could be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first signing as the club's interim manager.

Despite his advancing years he is still one of Mauricio Pochettino's most trusted players, and his extension is brilliant news for the club.

The ex-Argentina worldwide also expressed his sympathy for Mourinho, sending his best wish to his "very good friend".

The final nail in the coffin came when Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool soundly beat United 3-1, with Mourinho's men offering minimal resistance.

Even though he signed a new five-year contract at Tottenham last summer, United's decision to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club's interim manager until the end of this season suggests their top managerial target is now employed by another club.

"What is going to happen is not in our hands, I mean the decision in another club, we don't know". I accept opinion when you win and people praise you.

I think football is emotion. If we consider that he can cope with 90 minutes, maybe he can play.

While they are enjoying a good season, as they are third in the Premier League and through to the round of 16 in the Champions League, Pochettino is limited in how he can improve the team.
