Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 32 games on Thursday.

The visitors have a chance to overturn the result when they meet for the return leg at Wembley.

Spurs put up a listless show at the Ghelamco Arena, with 20,000 fans cheering on. Coach Mauricio Pochettino asked his boys to forget their 2-0 thumping by Liverpool in their last Premier League match. The manager selected a strong side for the game, making just two chances to the team that started the Anfield game.

In the first half, Harry Winks and Ben Davies combined to set up Dele Alli but the forward sent his effort wide. After the break, Pochettino decided to move former Newcastle United player Moussa Sissoko to the left, making attacks more potent. Harry Kane gained from this but his chance hit the post. Spurs ended up frustrated and Alli picked up a yellow card for dissent.    

Recent reports have revealed that Netherlands international Memphis Depay will likely move from Manchester United to Tottenham hotspur come January 2017.

Manchester united is set to receive £12.5million for the transfer of the attacker.

Recall that this transfer fee is almost double of what united paid PSV Eindhoven for the player, who has had quite a challenging time since moving to England.

Paying such a high price for the player could be a brilliant move by Spur, as Memphis could rediscover his lost form while playing at White Hart Lane.

Football analyst have noted that, out of the 56 appearance that he had made, the 22-year old have been able to register just seven goals and make seven assist, a result widely considered to be disappointing.

However, Depay’s poor performance this season may not entirely be his fault. He has enjoyed very little playtime at united, appearing a total of 76 minutes including premier league games.

He has also spent most of the last season trying to adapt to a new surroundings and playing under a manager who negated his attacking intent.

The English Football League is considering creating a new ‘fifth’ division for the start of the 2019/2020 football season, according to the Chief Executive Shaun Harvey.

According to Harvey, members would be the one to decide if Celtic and Rangers can participate in the EFL. The EFL wants to expand to four divisions of 20 teams each, so it wants the 72 clubs to give their opinions.

Celtic and Rangers have been seriously considered for long to join the fifth division, despite being of the Scottish divide. But Harvey says the final decision would be made solely by the members.

“We have recently gone out to our clubs to elicit their further views in relation to any different number of areas from the proposition that was first put forward. Once we have their views, we can move forward,” Harvey said. He then added that if they were to proceed, there’s the dilemma of which teams to choose.

“One of the simple questions, if this is to proceed, is where should the [new] teams come from? So the only ones who will decide that are the clubs themselves, so we will see what they say. I don’t want to pre-empt anything,” he added. Rangers and Celtic have massive fan bases, and would be worthy additions.
