Mauricio Pochettino remembers old roommate, idol Diego Maradona, fondly

Paolo Bandini and the FC crew react to Tottenham's signing of Davinson Sanchez and discuss the options he gives Pochettino.
Mauricio Pochettino says Kieran Trippier could play against Chelsea and calls for an end to talk about Spurs' Wembley hoodoo.
Victor Wanyama says Tottenham won't be out for revenge against Chelsea at Wembley. Wanyama was speaking at Leagoo's unveiling as Spurs' official mobile phone partner.

Mauricio Pochettino still struggles to find the right words in English. The Tottenham manager has been discussing the problem of signing players and competing with Spurs' wealthier English rivals, topics he has no difficulty articulating. But now he looks to his assistant and unofficial translator Jesus Perez for help.

"It's so difficult in English to express myself and my emotions," Pochettino says. He is thinking back to 1993, when he was a 21-year-old defender at Newell's Old Boys. That September,...

Steve Nicol critiques Arsenal's slow start against Stoke, but still feels Arsene Wenger's side deserved a draw.
Jese scored the lone goal of the game on his Stoke City debut to help the Potters hold off Arsenal at home.

Having broken the away day hoodoo at Stoke last season, Arsenal went into Saturday's game with more confidence than in the past, but paid the price in a 1-0 loss that featured a disjointed team selection by manager Arsene Wenger.

He left out captain Per Mertesacker, played the right-footed Hector Bellerin on the left, asked Nacho Monreal to anchor a back three, and shoehorned Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into the team on the right because of that.

Wenger's side dominated, should have had a first-half...

STOKE-ON-TRENT, England -- Three thoughts from Stoke City's 1-0 Premier League victory against Arsenal at the bet365 Stadium.

1. Stoke sink Arsenal yet again

Stoke City are never to be taken lightly, and definitely not against the opponent they love beating most of all. For the third time in five seasons, they mugged Arsenal at their home ground. 

Jese's 47th-minute winner came after Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was caught out in possession. Saido Berahino's link-up play was cool...

Jurgen Klopp reflects on Andrew Robertson's impact after Liverpool's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Not entirely convincing, but Liverpool did enough to pick up their first win of the season against a side they often have trouble with. Sadio Mane eventually broke the deadlock after 73 minutes and only a string of late saves by Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey kept the score close.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts from Liverpool's 1-0 win against Crystal Palace at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

1. Mane the man as Liverpool edge Palace  

Liverpool would love to welcome Philippe Coutinho back, but Sadio Mane is carrying the torch for their attack in Coutinho's absence due to a back injury.

The Reds missed Coutinho's creativity for large sections of Saturday's win, but with Mane's help manager Jurgen Klopp's side are 1-0-1. His second goal in as...

Jose Mourinho feels Man United are far more disciplined and calm this season as compared to last year.

Jose Mourinho told his Manchester United players repeatedly last season they needed to be more clinical, and they have started the new campaign with the perfect answer.

A 4-0 win over West Ham on the opening weekend was followed up with another against Swansea. After just two games, they have scored nearly 15 percent of their Premier League goals tally from last season.
