Spurs cup exit vs. Liverpool would be a big blow, but Pochettino should rotate

Tottenham face Liverpool in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. Who will come out on top?
Tottenham face Liverpool in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. Who will come out on top?

The Premier League title race is proving to be as open and close as many predicted, with just one point separating the top five teams. The sides that can focus solely on domestic affairs have a clear advantage, as was evidenced in the fact that the only two top-five teams to win over the weekend were not involved in Europe during the preceding days.

While Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham all had Champions League group matches to deal with before dropping points in the league, Liverpool and...

Tottenham defence impresses but Son Heung-Min struggles at Bournemouth

Tottenham missed an opportunity to go top of the Premier League after they were held by a resilient Bournemouth.

Tottenham missed out on a chance to move to the top of the Premier League table -- even if only temporarily -- after a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth in Saturday's early kickoff. It was the second time in as many games that Spurs played out a goalless tie, after their trip to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League, and they have now drawn in each of their past three matches.


Tottenham's defensive record remains hugely impressive. This was their eighth clean sheet in 13 games this campaign and...

Eddie Howe cannot praise Bournemouth enough for their attacking attitude against Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino says in order for Spurs to challenge for the league title, they must start capitalising.

BOURNEMOUTH, England -- Three points on Tottenham's 0-0 draw at Bournemouth as Spurs failed to take their chances in the Premier League.

1. Tottenham miss their chance

If Tottenham have ambitions of finishing the season as the best team in the Premier League, at some point they will need to top the table. Spurs challenged for the title last season but they trailed Leicester City from the opening day and twice missed opportunities to leapfrog the Foxes, albeit temporarily.

On Thursday, Mauricio Pochettino...

Jose Mourinho returns to face Chelsea, Manchester City's Southampton test

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop tries his hand at Premier League predictor, but does he expect a stalemate at the Bridge?

Jose Mourinho returns to former club Chelsea with Manchester United on Sunday having struggled to break down Liverpool in the 0-0 draw at Anfield, but seeing his side score four against Feyenoord.

Arsenal are flying high after their demolition of Ludogorets, which was their seventh win in a row in all competitions, and will hope add to that streak against struggling Middlesbrough, while leaders Manchester City take on Southampton hoping to get back on track after their humbling at Barcelona.

Mauricio Pochettino under pressure to figure out best Tottenham XI

ESPN FC Tottenham correspondent Dan Kilpatrick credits Hugo Lloris for saving a wasteful Tottenham side against Leverkusen.

It wasn't necessarily the way Mauricio Pochettino had planned it, but the Spurs manager now finds himself spoiled for choice. Last season, the team sheet all but wrote itself. Thanks to a bit of luck with most players steering clear of injury, Pochettino was able to send out pretty much the same starting XI for all Premier League games, with things only beginning to unravel a little in the last four games when suspensions, fatigue and loss of form began to take their toll.

This season has panned...
