As Chelsea wobble can Spurs surge to Premier League title?

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said that Premier League leaders Chelsea are under pressure, ahead of their trip to Manchester United this Sunday.

Working as a well-oiled machine, converting defence into attack, week in and week out, it is no surprise that Spurs have been the most consistent side in the English game for the last two seasons.

But not only does the gravitas of the individuals matter in emphasising Kane's achievement but also the timeline, as it's been more than 10 years since we've seen it.

"Now that is real pressure and they have not really felt it yet, but they nearly certainly will at some point between now and the end of the campaign".

Tottenham's incessant pursuit and impressive recent form has given them hope of a first league title since 1961, but if they are to achieve that, they will have to win on Saturday.

Axelrod: Trump's Susan Rice allegation 'beneath the dignity of that office'
Flynn was sacked after it became clear that he misled Vice President Mike Pence and others about the content of those discussions. Once again President Donald Trump has fixed his mouth to accuse someone else in the Obama administration of committing a crime.

"It is the Premier League, Arsenal have three games in hand so we should not think about this", Klopp said.

They looked shoddy and sloppy - nearly as if they were the side recovering from a midweek European trip. "We would have wanted to perform much better as a group, we didn't do it, credit to them [Tottenham]".

We've been very good at that this season, especially at home.

Add in Conte's reminder of how this season should be seen in the context of Chelsea's poor campaign a year ago, and the impression is left of a manager trying to lower hopes when they are at their highest.

Then there were Conte's comments about Saturday's FA Cup semi-final which pits the two London title rivals against each other.

Anne Hathaway's parenting chat on Ellen takes amusing turn
These unusual transitions deliver a kind of tonal whiplash and risk the audience's connection to these likable characters. He's well-paired with Hathaway, who hints at how screwed-up Gloria is without overdoing it.

Who is more likely to move to each Premier League club this summer? While inconveniencing the Blues in the short run, the loss also laid bare the size of task awaiting the club if they are to compete in the Champions League next season.

"I think they are in the position where everybody wants to be", he said.

Finishing third may not seem that crucial, and indeed it is far more vital for Liverpool to ensure a top four spot, regardless of whether they finish fourth or third.

The Reds secured a rare Premier League victory at The Hawthorns thanks to Roberto Firmino's close-range header at the end of the first half. "They are feeling the possibility to write the history and it is important to know this", the Italian said. Except it's three seasons now and assuming he stays at White Hart Lane and grows alongside Tottenham's developing core, there's every reason to suggest he can join Shearer on four, Henry on five and maybe even surpass them and make it six seasons of 20+ goals, injuries permitting.

Trump officials to deliberate on Paris climate pact
The Obama administration agreed to reduce U.S. emissions by 26 to 28 per cent below its 2005 levels by the year 2025. Paris opponents plan a deep analysis on those potential legal risks to bolster their case against staying.
