    JOSE NO MOUR?

    Jose Mourinho is the new favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave their post.

    The ex-Man United boss saw his Spurs side crash out of the Europa League to Dinamo Zagreb 3-2 on aggregate – having won the first leg 2-0.

    According to Betfair, Mourinho was 14/1 before tonight’s horror show.

    And now he is just 13/10 to leave the London club.

    • Jose Mourinho: 13/10
    • No Manager To Leave: 13/5
    • Steve Bruce: 7/2
    • Sam Allardyce: 5/1
    • Paul Heckingbottom: 11/1

    DINAMO ZAGREB 3 SPURS 0 (3-2 AGG)

    The authorities come down heavily on footballing fraudsters in this part of the world.

    So Jose Mourinho and his Spurs stars might be wondering if they should be be allowed out of Croatia following this.

    The hosts suffered the worst possible preparation as their coach Zoran Mamic was jailed for nearly five years for embezzlement.

    But after this it is Mourinho and his men who deserve to be banged up for impersonating a Premier League team.

    FIRING BLANKS

    The first 45 minutes are nearly over at the San Siro and United are still drawing 0-0.

    The Red Devils have struggled to create opportunities against Milan, who are packing the midfield while playing without a recognised striker.

    Remember, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men MUST score to stay in the tie, having conceded a late equaliser at Old Trafford in the first leg for 1-1.

      ARSENAL 0 OLYMPIACOS 1 (3-2 AGG)

      Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang climbed off the naughty step to help nervous Arsenal edge their way through to the Europa League quarter-finals.

      But there won’t be too many potential opponents quaking at the knees at the prospect of being drawn against Mikel Arteta’s men tomorrow afternoon.

      It was a good job for Arteta that his team held a 3-1 cushion from last week’s first leg in Athens.

      And in the end that was just about enough to see them safely over the line against an Olympiakos team who simply refused to give up.

      MY PAL PAOLO

      Chelsea loanee Fikayo Tomori has revealed he speaks to AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini before and after every game.

      Tomori told The Times: "If I had gone on loan somewhere during the summer I wouldn’t be here.

      "Now, I have the chance to play for AC Milan, play in Serie A, learning something new and having the likes of [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Mario] Mandzukic, and Paolo Maldini, to learn from.

      "You feel his [Maldini's] presence. As much as I’m playing for myself and for the team and the manager, I want to impress him.

      "It’s like if you were an attacker and one day Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi was your sporting director and saying these words for you. It’s crazy.

      "Before every game, he talks and says come on and says well done after. If I haven’t played well he’s still there saying well done."

      IN KON-TACT

      Man Utd and Chelsea are reportedly locked in a huge transfer battle to sign RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.

      According to AS, Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barca have joined the race to land the highly-rated defender.

      The 21-year-old French talent has attracted significant interest after his form for Leipzig.

      But with Dayot Upamecano joining Bayern Munich this summer, Leipzig may not be prepared to sell another key defender unless they receive a major offer.

      PIERRE WE GO

      Arsenal could welcome back captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for this evening’s crunch Europa League last-16 clash with Olympiacos.

      The Gunners lead 3-1 from the first leg in Greece, with goals coming from Martin Odegaard, Gabriel and Mo Elneny.

      And Arteta could decide to recall star man Aubameyang after dropping him from Sunday’s 2-1 win over Tottenham.

      But with a place in the quarter finals at stake, Arteta could decide to stick with the rest of the team that triumphed over rivals Spurs in the derby.

      SHOWING SOME STONES

      John Stones' brilliant form for Premier League leaders Manchester City has unsurprisingly earned him an England recall.

      The 26-year-old was a mainstay for the Three Lions during the 2018 World Cup campaign.

      But some rocky form at club level saw him lose his place in the national setup.

      Stones was last capped in November 2019, but appears certain to add to his tally of 39 international outings this month.

      SHAW THING

      Luke Shaw's excellent form for Manchester United has earned him an England recall.

      Having earned his Three Lions debut all the way back in 2014 as a teenager, the left-back has surprisingly only managed to earn another seven caps since.

      But having won the battle with Alex Telles for United's starting spot, the 25-year-old has earned the faith of England boss Gareth Southgate.

      Shaw was last capped by England against Spain in September 2018, and has played only twice under Southgate.

      HEN DO

      In Jordan Pickford's absence, Dean Henderson may get an opportunity to stake a claim for England's No1 shirt.

      The Manchester United stopper recently had a run in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting XI, following David de Gea's absence.

      And in upcoming matches against San Marino, Albania and Poland, Henderson is likely to get an opportunity to prove himself to Gareth Southgate.

      He will be vying with Burnley's Nick Pope for the starting spot, while West Brom star and fellow Man United academy graduate Sam Johnstone has received his first call-up.

      BACK LIN BUSINESS

      Jesse Lingard has been called up by England after nearly two years in the international wilderness.

      Having become a forgotten man at Manchester United in the first half of this season, JLingz appeared to have no chance of going to the Euros.

      But his fantastic loan spell at West Ham, during which he has scored four goals and assisted a further two in six games, has brought him back into Gareth Southgate's plans for upcoming matches against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

      IN THE MOOD FOR DAHOUD

      Chelsea and Manchester City are reportedly leading the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud.

      Thomas Tuchel helped sign Dahoud back in 2017 and will hope to bring the Dortmund star at Stamford Bridge.

      The 25-year-old Germany international is being tracked by several Premier League giants.

      Dahoud's contract at Dortmund expires at the end of next season and this has increased interest in him.
