JOSE MOURINHO is back in the Premier League after taking over from Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham.The Portuguese boss is a well-known figure in the English top-flight, having won titles at Chelsea and Manchester United.2 Jose Mourinho is back in the Premier League as he prepares to manage his third club in the English top flightCredit: PA:Press AssociationHe has coached for around nine seasons on these shores, while his recent stints on Sky Sports have made sure fans have not forgotten him.And with the return of ‘The Special One’, fans are already getting excited over his comeback matches against his former clubs with Tottenham.When do Man Utd and Tottenham play each other?Mourinho was only sacked by Man United in December 2018, after seeing the Red Devils drop to 19 points off the lead in the Premier League.As at previous sides, he was once again successful in winning the Europa League, but also controversial with his public comments against his own players.The 56-year-old’s new club Spurs have yet to meet in this season – but fans will not have to wait long for this tasty affair.The two teams will collide at Old Trafford in Mourinho’s fourth game in charge at Tottenham on Wednesday, December 4 – where he can expect a rowdy reception.They will then meet again on March 14 next year in the reverse fixture.Mourinho’s first ten games at SpursNov 23 – West Ham (A)Nov 26 – Olympiakos (H)Nov 30 – Bournemouth (H)Dec 4 – Man Utd (A)Dec 7 – Burnley (H)Dec 11 – Bayern Munich (A)Dec 15 – Wolves (A)Dec 22 – Chelsea (H)Dec 26 – Brighton (H)Dec 28 – Norwich (A)Most Read In FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himWhen will Tottenham face Chelsea?Like with Man United, Tottenham have yet to face Chelsea this season and their first meeting also comes next month.The sides will face off on December 22 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Mourinho goes up against the side he has spent most time at.The Portuguese manager won eight trophies in two spells at the Blues, including the Premier League title on three occasions.He will also be in the opposite dugout to a man he knows quite well, with Frank Lampard enjoying that success under Mourinho’s tutelage during his playing days.The new Spurs boss will be handed his homecoming to Stamford Bridge on February 22.2 How Tottenham could line up after a shake up from the Special One
DELE ALLI had a moment of sheer genius but couldn’t save Tottenham from slipping to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester United.Marcus Rashford threatened time and time again in a frenetic first-half, scoring the game’s first goal in the sixth minute, with a powerful shot slipping through Paulo Gazzaniga at the near-post.2 Dele Alli’s moment of genius saw Spurs briefly get back on level termsCredit: PA:Press AssociationBut a moment of pure quality from Dele Alli saw Spurs equalise shortly before the interval.Rashford deservedly got his second of the match early in the second-half after winning – and converting – a penalty after a needless foul by Moussa Sissoko.After an exciting clash at Old Trafford, here’s how SunSport’s Dave Fraser rated Spurs’ stars against Man Utd…PAULO GAZZANIGA – 5Beaten at his near post far too easily for Man Utd’s opener despite getting a hand on it. Should have done better.Two great saves to deny Rashford a second as he got a fingertip on a 20-yard effort to divert it onto the bar before palming another effort wide.Another strong save from Daniel James in the second-half went a way to redeeming himself for his early error.SERGE AURIER – 6Dangerous going forward and linking up with Lucas Moura on the right, but far too often his end product was wasteful.Much improved delivery in the second-half.DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 6Solid when called upon but a quiet game for the Colombian.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 5Failed to make his mark on the game, with Jan Vertonghen – so often his centre-back partner down the years – on the left.Didn’t put a foot wrong necessarily, but is also a part of a Spurs defence who’ve conceded twice in every, single game under Jose Mourinho.JAN VERTONGHEN – 6Solid on the left, but the centre-back by nature will never be the sort to take on the opponent’s right-back, struggling to get the Spurs attackers into the game early on.Good in defence though, keeping Daniel James quiet by his high standards – and also delivered a superb cross late in the first-half in a rare threatening moment for Tottenham.HARRY WINKS – 6Booked for a dangerous and unnecessary lunge on Daniel James early on.Hurt midway through the second-half and limped off for treatment. Unable to run it off and ultimately replaced by Tanguy Ndombele.2 Moussa Sissoko struggled mightily at Old TraffordCredit: PA:Press AssociationACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneMOUSSA SISSOKO – 4Lucky to avoid a booking for a horrible, high tackle on Fred in the first-half.Gave away a needless penalty early in the second half for treading on Rashford’s foot with the ball surely running out of play.LUCAS MOURA – 6Looked lively throughout and always more than happy to run at defenders. He didn’t always have the desired effect, though.Strong link-up play with Aurier down the right.DELE ALLI – 8A player reborn in the last few weeks, a moment of genius saw Alli flick the ball over Fred and Ashley Young before smashing the ball past David De Gea to equalise for Spurs.Looked back to his creative best in recent weeks and carried that on throughout the game, even with Spurs being outplayed.Nearly grabbed a late equaliser with a solid strike, only to see his effort saved by David De Gea.SON HEUNG-MIN – 6Always a very real danger in attack, mixing pace and composure to bamboozle defenders.HARRY KANE – 5Unusually quiet. Failed to get into the game as Spurs attacked primarily down the right flank rather than through the middle.With Tottenham’s final pass often lacking, Kane was a spectator.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneMORE SPURS STORIESHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this yearSUBSChristian Eriksen (for Lucas Moura, 64 mins) – Mixed dreadful (passing the ball straight out of play) with the sublime (lofted ball to Aurier in the box) in an inconsistent showing. 5.Tanguy Ndombele (for Harry Winks, 70 mins) – Instantly better than Sissoko after stepping on to the pitch. Should be starting. 6.Giovani Lo Celso (for Moussa Sissoko, 85 mins) – Little time to have any impact on the game. 5.Jose Mourinho superfan Viv Bodycote gets her 38th tattoo of ‘The Special One’ to mark his return to management
The frustration at Waterhouse Football Club in this season’s Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) continues to build, as they went down 2-0 to Reno in an uninspiring performance at their Drewsland base. It was their fifth loss from 10 home matches.However, Coach Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey said it was not time to press the panic button as he believes there is more than adequate time to save their season.”It was lacklustre. I didn’t expect a lacklustre performance like this. We didn’t even look like we turned up to play until the secondhalf,” Bailey told the Gleaner.”But there are still a lot of points and a lot of games, so we can’t give up and it’s too early to hit the alarm bells. I don’t think the alarm bells should start ringing as yet. Yes, we want points and you want to assure yourself, but time is on our side. We just have to look in ourselves and see where we go from here. But as soon as we get some players off injury and get the new players coming in you will see a different team,” Bailey sought to assure.Reno looked dangerous from the onset and it was no surprise when Kavar Walker steered home Javed Richardson’s cross from 12 yards after 17 minutes of play.WASTED GIFTWaterhouse struggled to get themselves together, but DeAndre Brown rattled the bar from 18 yards of a low Irvino English cross and Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson wasted a gift after goalkeeper Dennis Taylor landed a spot-kick at his feet just outside the area, firing over the unguarded goal.However, when the Waterhouse defence failed to clear a ball from their area, it eventually fell to the prolific Craig Foster, who spun and fired pass Diego Haughton in the Waterhouse goal.The hosts improved slightly after the break, but still looked disorganised and lacked creativity for the most part. But while Anderson forced a good save out of Taylor midway the half, his opportunity in the final minute summed up his and Waterhouse’s play, as, with only Taylor to beat he dragged a tame shot wide from 12 yards.Reno’s Technical Director Wendell Downswell said the team’s aim is to win six straight and climb out of the bottom half of the standings.”We are on track in the new year,” Downswell said.In other games, Portmore and Montego Bay United played to a 1-1 draw. UWI stopped Harbour View 1-0, Arnett Gardens beat Boys’ Town 2-1 in the Trench Town derby, Tivoli edged Jamalco 1-0 and Humble Lion defeated Maverley-Hughenden 2-0.Montego Bay lead the table with 39 points, but that was cut to one by Tivoli (38). UWI are third with 35 points, followed by Humble Lion on 34, Portmore with 33, and Arnett on 28.Yesterday’s ResultsPortmore 1 – 1 Montego BayUWI 1 – 0 Harbour ViewBoys’ Town 1-2 Arnett GardensJamalco 0 – 1 TivoliWaterhouse 0 – 2 RenoHumble Lion 2 – 0 Maverley-Hughenden

Nick Fazekas had a season-high 33 points, 15 rebounds and keyed a big run to open the second half that carried No. 12 Nevada to a 81-68 victory over Fresno State on Thursday night. Kyle Shiloh added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and the WolfPack (22-2, 10-1 Western Athletic Conference) dominated the boards to win for the 15th time in 16 games. Nevada outrebounded host Fresno State (16-8, 5-6) 53-25. But Memphis’ defense never let UAB (11-12, 3-6) muster much of a scoring spurt. The Blazers committed 20 turnovers, many of them careless mistakes. They also made just 2-of-15 3-pointers and 16-of-52 shots. No. 10 Butler 92, Cleveland State 50 Pete Campbell made eight 3-pointers – six in the first half – and finished with 28 points, and No. 10 Butler showed off its outside touch by making a school record 20 3s. Ranked higher in the AP’s poll than at any time in school history, the visiting Bulldogs (23-2, 11-1 Horizon League) extended their winning streak to nine in a row with an eye-popping display of offensive efficiency and marksmanship. Campbell led the way, making 8-of-11 shots from beyond the arc. – From News Services 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Fazekas scored the first two baskets of the second half to extend a two-point lead and had nine points in all in a 14-4 run that gave the Wolf Pack a 54-42 lead. After Kevin Bell hit a 3-pointer for Fresno State, Nevada answered with a pair of 3-pointers by Shiloh and another by Denis Ikolev to go up 63-45 with 13:49 remaining. The Bulldogs responded with a 12-2 run that cut the lead to eight, but Fazekas answered with a basket and the lead never got below 10 after that. No. 8 Memphis 70, UAB 56 Jeremy Hunt scored a career-high 30 points and visiting Memphis limited UAB to 31 percent shooting. The Tigers (20-3, 10-0 Conference USA) blew the game open by going on a 24-5 run starting late in the first half for their 12th consecutive victory. Hunt made six 3-pointers before the half, bettering his previous scoring high by a point in 15 minutes action. He didn’t score again until managing a short jumper and a seventh 3 over the final 3 minutes.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “We must remain committed to achieving a fair contract,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the league. “Our goal is simple: to pay for workers we need and for work that is actually performed.” City officials said Saturday that it was too early to estimate the economic impact of the strike. Mayor Michael Bloomberg expressed disappointment that the two sides couldn’t settle their differences without a strike, but reiterated, “The city continues to stand ready to help in any way we can.” The work stoppage first affected “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical,” a holiday attraction for families that had an early 11 a.m. matinee. School counselor Vicki Michel, with teacher husband Pat, came to New York from their home in Puyallup, Wash., for a weekend of Broadway shows. The three shows they intended to see were all canceled: “Grinch,” “Hairspray” and “Mamma Mia!” They managed to nab tickets to “Young Frankenstein” (which was not affected by the walkout) and the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular,” and were headed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday instead of the “Grinch.” Outside the Gershwin Theatre, where “Wicked” plays, Wanda Antonetti, of DuBois, Pa., and her daughter, Sherry Antonetti, of Dover, Del., contemplated where to shop. They arrived Saturday morning to celebrate Wanda Antonetti’s 70th birthday and did not know about the strike until they arrived at the theater. “We came a long way for lunch,” Wanda Antonetti said. NEW YORK – From “Wicked” to “The Phantom of the Opera,” from “Mamma Mia!” to “Rent,” most shows did not go on as Broadway stagehands walked off the job, shutting down more than two dozen plays and musicals. It was a dramatic, uncertain day in the Times Square area for disappointed theatergoers, who mingled on the streets Saturday while striking Local One stagehands picketed in an orderly fashion behind barricades and declined to talk to reporters. The union had no official comment on the walkout. No new negotiations have been scheduled between Local One and the League of American Theatres and Producers, so the outlook for a quick settlement looks murky. The two sides have been in contentious negotiations for more than three months. Much of their disagreements involve work rules and staffing requirements, particularly rules governing the expensive process of loading in and setting up a show. The producers want more flexibility in hiring; the stagehands don’t want to give up what they say are hard-won benefits without something in return. Theater employees told patrons they could expect refunds, but no rescheduled tickets. At “Wicked,” several received pamphlets for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” which was playing next door and was open for business. On West 52nd Street, where Tony Award-winning musicals “Jersey Boys” and “Hairspray” play on either side of the street, pickets stood behind police barricades as theatergoers received directions on how to get their refunds. The stagehands carried signs reading, “Our families are No. 1.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Ivan Perisic in action for Inter Milan 1 Ivan Perisic is preparing to make a shock switch… to beach volleyball!The Inter Milan winger – reportedly wanted by Manchester United – is one of Croatia’s biggest football stars.Having played at last summer’s European Championship and endured a testing season with Inter, you would think the 28-year-old would be taking a well-earned rest this summer.But Perisic is instead getting set to represent Croatia in one of beach volleyball’s biggest annual tournaments.He is a huge fan of the sport and, in three weeks’ time, will face Olympic stars alongside teammate Niksa Dell’Orco in the Swatch Major Series in Pore?, Croatia.“Last year I saw the Pore?

Seamus Coleman was the hero as Ireland overcame Georgia in this World Cup Qualifying game at the Aviva Stadium.The Killybegs man captained his country and scored the only goal of the game following a determined if somewhat bizarre run inside the box which saw him literally walk the ball over the line.The Everton star was awarded the man of the match award to round off a solid display to snatch three vital points with his first goal in a green jersey. The final whistle saw Coleman greet his family including his dad in the crowd.Jon Walters paid tribute to his captain’s 56th goal and never-say-die attitude.“It was fitting of the captain to get it today. He makes those runs all the day and it was a great goal,” he said.Ireland put behind a very indifferent first half to push on a look for more openings in the second half to nick the game in the end. Scrappy or not, Coleman will be delighted that he wore the captain’s armband when Martin O’Neill’s team chalked up three very important points.Captain Coleman the hero as Ireland beat Georgia at the Aviva was last modified: October 7th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Aviva stadiumGeorgiaIrelandseamus colemanWORLD CUP
