Is Harry Kane going to go for particular person information or is he going to go for medals? I do not see him profitable something at Tottenham.

Tottenham have been good to Kane concurrently Kane’s been good to Tottenham. He is acquired youngsters, he is married – he is acquired to play the place he is completely satisfied. Would you need to change all that?

He is one of the best centre-forward on this planet. If I am Manchester United, I am spending £100m on Kane tomorrow. They only paid £80m for Antony and he will not rating as many objectives in 10 years as Kane would rating in a season for Man Utd.

Kane can play till he is 37 as a result of he does not must have tempo – his recreation’s not about tempo. He is acquired the mind, he can come brief, discover the passes and rating the objectives. He has every thing.

If Man Utd need to be anyplace close to profitable a title, they want a Kane. Seeing them in opposition to Arsenal, they are a great distance off nonetheless.

Kane to Chelsea? That may’t occur. If he involves Chelsea, he loses his legacy at Tottenham. Tottenham followers would go mad. For him to go over to Chelsea, it will be the following notch down from going to Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham do not get on.

I assumed Arsenal had been mind-blowing in opposition to Man Utd. For the ultimate 20 minutes, the stress was fixed. They only suffocated Man Utd. They picked the precise move and by no means panicked. They had been identical to the massive dangerous wolf – they only blew the home down.

You at all times assume with Manchester Metropolis that they are going to rating earlier than the top and also you’re getting that with Arsenal now. It was phenomenal to observe.

I assumed Eddie Nketiah would do a job for 3, 4, 5 video games. I did not assume he’d do it over this quantity of video games.

I like him as a goalscorer. I performed with and in opposition to Gary Lineker, when the ball used to hit the submit, he’d faucet it in, and folks would say, ‘oh, that was simple’. However nobody else was there, pushing him out the best way to attain. That is the factor with Nketiah.

He scored at Brighton the opposite week, and there was no means (Gabriel) Jesus was scoring that. He scored once more on Sunday when there was no means Jesus was scoring that.

I do not fear about Chelsea. I feel they will be good.

For those who take a look at Graham Potter’s profession at Brighton, I assumed they had been the most effective groups within the league from field to field. When he left there, they began scoring objectives, so which may fear you a little bit bit. However I feel he wants time and a pre-season, to get his gamers in and get them enjoying the best way he needs to play.

I feel Chelsea will go on a little bit little bit of a run. He is acquired to start out someplace. It has been a little bit of a nightmare scenario, however they’ve introduced in a whole lot of younger gamers and the long run does look shiny.

I do not assume it is honest to herald somebody to a membership like that and never give him time to have a pre-season. If he is the place he’s now this time subsequent season, then there’s alarm bells.

They’re 10 factors behind Newcastle, who’re the group I feel they have to chase down. I feel Man Metropolis, Man Utd and Arsenal will likely be within the prime 4. For those who beat Newcastle at residence then it is seven factors. There’s an opportunity if they will get on a run. There’s nonetheless a whole lot of video games – folks overlook we had a World Cup. We’re solely on midway now.

Mykhailo Mudryk appears like an excellent purchase. He regarded very full of life and pacey [against Liverpool]. Jurgen Klopp introduced James Milner off very quickly in opposition to him on Saturday. Joao Felix will come again, so you’ve got acquired him and Kai Havertz with Mudryk. It appears full of life.

They appear strong on the again, too, with two clear sheets on the trot. Benoit Badiashile’s regarded excellent – and he is enjoying with one of many best of all time with Thiago Silva. He is nonetheless the most effective now and he is 38. Even all of his headers from him are knocked all the way down to folks. I am unable to discuss extremely sufficient of him. If we speak about Virgil van Dijk as a Rolls Royce, then Silva’s a classic Rolls Royce.
