What's trending in world football: Liverpool ticket protest, Lavezzi to China

Paul Mariner thinks the fan protest against Anfield ticket prices may have influenced Liverpool's late collapse against Sunderland.

Here are the top stories from Monday:

LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp (or one of his assistants given Klopp had his appendix removed on Saturday) will speak at 2 p.m. to preview Tuesday's FA Cup replay at West Ham but all the talk is about the ticket protest walkout in Saturday's match. Are Liverpool's owners going to review their decision?

- Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson refused to use the mass walk-out as an excuse for their late capitulation at home to Sunderland.

LEICESTER: Leicester...

Former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner tips his hat to north London rivals Spurs after they went 2nd in the Premier League.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino refuses to talk of his team's title chances, insisting he will do nothing but take each game as it comes. But after a hard-fought -- yet thoroughly deserved -- 1-0 victory against Watford, others are. This win takes Tottenham into second place in the Premier League, five points behind leaders Leicester; next week's fixture against Manchester City at the Etihad is now more crucial than ever.

Tottenham's persistence pays off in victory over Watford

LONDON -- Three observations from Tottenham's 1-0 Premier League win over Watford at White Hart Lane.

1. Persistence pays off for Spurs

There was atweet doing the rounds at half-time -- a prophecy of sorts -- from the day Watford were promoted to the Premier League in April 2015. It was a simple prediction: Watford to win 1-0 at White Hart Lane, with former Spurs goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes the man of the match. Football has a habit of writing such scripts and Gomes, who spent the best part...

Assessing the first team chances of Tottenham's five best youngsters

The ESPN FC crew debate whether the current top four in the Premier League will remain there by the end of the season.

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino spent January insisting that his "philosophy" is to promote young players, rather than sign new ones. True to his word, the transfer window shut on Monday without Spurs buying a senior player. The club has been left with one recognised centre-forward in Harry Kane and a shortage of options at centre-half -- at least while Jan Vertonghen is injured.

Pochettino, however, isn't worried. Joshua Onomah, who signed a new contract this week, is the latest academy product...

Mauricio Pochettino may change tactics against Watford

The ESPN FC crew debate whether the current top four in the Premier League will remain there by the end of the season.

When Mauricio Pochettino is asked for his view on Tottenham's upcoming opponents, or rivals, there is a standard formula -- he pays the usual compliments and shows his respect before stressing that the focus is on his own team's performance.

Indeed, just before Christmas, he went as far as to quote lyrics from a Britney Spears and Will.I.Am song, commanding: "All eyes on us, all eyes on us."

The message is that if Tottenham's players perform to the best of their abilities, there are few teams that...

Dele Alli interviews Eric Dier for SpursTV and it's brilliant

Eric Dier and Dele Alli have formed an impressive partnership on the pitch for both Tottenham and England this season -- but their off-field "bromance" is arguably even more special.

The best mates have been engaged in a fierce battle on social media to find the most embarrassing picture of the other -- with Dier's most recent offering this gem of a young Alli -- and the latest prank saw Alli interview his teammate about Saturday's match against Watford for Tottenham's in-house channel SpursTV.
