Tottenham could ask Premier League to postpone Brighton match after Covid outbreakWhile the identities of the players have not been confirmed, it is believed that the outbreak involves a number of first-team squad members and members of the coaching team.Tottenham’s number of positive cases would seemingly have to grow even further to threaten the Europa Conference League clash with Rennes, as Uefa rules stipulate that ties are only placed into jeopardy “if less than 13 players registered on the A list or no registered goalkeeper are available.”Under those rules, it is understood that Spurs would currently be able to fulfil the Rennes fixture, although whether or not that is the case after PCR testing remains to be seen. Concerns were raised by the further case registered on Tuesday morning.

: Thomas Tuchel on Edouard Mendy’s performance for #Chelsea vs West Ham:”Maybe on his very best day today, we could have won the game 2-1. But now it is on us to also be there for him and to go through there with him.””We would not do anything else with anybody else and that’s it.”””I don’t see at all why we should have major doubts with Edou.””Every single career as a goalkeeper out there, there will be tough days and tough moments and they are in the spotlight because you are in an exposed situation and position if you play goalkeeper.”

EDUARDO MENDY✔️ Won the Champions League✔️ Won the super cup✔️Won Uefa best keeper✔️ Won the highest Cleansheets🥈 Second highest Cleansheets in EPL⚽ Conceded only three goals in the Champions League..But he was denied the Yashin trophy award..Because Donnaromma won the Euro and won the tournament best player.Does it mean the Euro is more important than the Champions League? And they see the AFCON as nothing?Imagine Jorgen Klopp calling the AFCON a small competition played in Africa. WTF!Let me put it to you that Mendy was robbed because of the color of his skin.If that be the case, the award should have waited till they finish playing the AFCON and see how Mendy performance at the AFCON would be like..The Truth is that Africans are not recognized in the world of football.We are being robbed, This people are full of racism and we the Africans are not bothered.We only taunt and banter with sentiments.. I no longer see the ballon d’or as prestigious award anymore, it’s a trash… Mendy is my goalkeeper of the year ♥️♥️💯💯💯🏆🏆🏆

🗣Zlatan Ibrahimovic:“Lukaku has a great ego, he thinks he’s a champion and he’s really strong. But I grew up in the Malmo ghetto, and when someone comes under me with his head down, I put him in his place.”“So, I hit him in his sweet spot: his Mum’s rituals. And he lost control. Although, I still have a terrible doubt… we lost that derby. I was sent off. Then I got injured. A lot of bad things happened. You’ll see that the Lukaku rituals really got me?”“I asked my believing friends to pray for me. I have to settle the bill with him too. I hope to meet him soon.”📲 @TheChelseaFC

🔹Watford boss Claudio Ranieri: “We are the underdog. The whole world knows this. We play Chelsea, one of the best teams in the world against Watford. Okay. We lost the match! We play. We then shake their hands.”🔹Watford boss Claudio Ranieri on Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel: “It’s fantastic. I think Frank Lampard made a very good job and Tuchel made better from the beginning. [Thomas Tuchel’s] a very practical man. He arrived and won the UCL. Now he is working to win the Premier League. Now in February, there is the Club World Cup and they try to win again. I wish Chelsea all the best.🔹Watford boss Claudio Ranieri on building foundations at Chelsea: “I think I built a very good foundation. I bought Petr Cech and [Arjen] Robben without training them! I built a very good foundation. It was a long time ago, I forgot!” #WatChe📲 @TheChelseaFC

🔹Thiago Silva wants to STAY at Chelsea and is expected to sign a +1 year contract extension with the club.🔹Andreas Christensen’s contract: “There’s a willingness from Chelsea’s side to listen to maybe bringing the contract length down, whether it be 3 or 4 years, or something in between with an option to extend a year.”“I’ve said all along, I think Christensen will get done. It was done, and then there was a problem and everything stopped. But now there seems to be a few concessions from both sides in terms of contract length and what can be done with options.”🔗 Matt Law on London Is Blue Podcast📲 @TheChelseaFC

🗣Jorginho:“I am very happy but I achieved this with the help of the whole team, so I’m just really grateful for that and I’m really happy and proud of myself and proud of the whole group and proud of this team because we deserve it, all together.””We need to put that (team) at the front & then come the individuals, so when we have an amazing group like this that works together, is really humble, always smiling, trying to help each other then of course the results come & you have awards.”📲 @TheChelseaFC

Tuchel’s insight about Chelsea’s current situation…:

: Thomas Tuchel on suggestions that Chelsea play better without Romelu Lukaku:

“He scored some very decisive goals for us already, to bring us in a position where the young players and other players can take over, step in and show their qualities.”
: Thomas Tuchel on Romelu Lukaku:

“We started strong and we started the season with Romelu. The things he brings when he is in the dressing room, in the building, even when he is injured, he is every day here, positive, determined, he pushes everybody.”

“He is a top professional and a top top striker. He will be super and he is actually in the moment very important.”
: Thomas Tuchel on Chelsea injuries:

“”I am happy that we can survive a long period without him [Lukaku], without [Mateo] Kovacic, without [Timo] Werner, without [Christian] Pulisic.”

“It shows we function as a team absolutely and we rely on top qualities like every team but they bring so much more than only their presence on the field.”

“We miss all our players when they are injured and we will Romelu a lot and we are capable of finding solutions and the team is doing so well as Romelu is pushing, he is here and he is part of the team.”
: Tuchel details Rudiger’s importance: “I will give you one example. If you look at the goal from N’Golo against Leicester when he runs more or less half the pitch and scores a fantastic goal with his left foot I was surprised when I saw it and realised that Rudiger was [among]…
: Tuchel: “…the first ones to be there, to congratulate and hug him because I thought ‘how fast is he for this to happen? Kante scored from the edge of the 18-yard box?When you look at it in detail you see that while N’Golo is driving forward Toni is closing the space…
: Tuchel: “and doing this kind of ‘invisible work’ to close the striker down. I think it was Lookman who was in that corridor and if the shot is blocked and the ball goes there Rudiger would be the first one to go into a counter-press. He takes the responsibility for covering that”
: Tuchel: “So this is the kind of work which means we are taking care of our roles and in that moment Toni is doing this, this very humble work, because how big is the chance that N’Golo scores from the left foot? He [Rudiger] could have just stood back and watched but he didn’t.”

Karim Benzema is guilty of complicity in the attempted blackmail of Mathieu Valbuena, according to the president of the Versailles court. Sentence to follow.

: Karim Benzema handed 1 year suspended prison sentence & a €75k fine after being found guilty of complicity in the act of blackmail of Mathieu Valbuena.
: Karim Benzema will appeal the decision, according to his lawyer:

“We are quite flabbergasted by this judgment. An appeal is necessary. He will be exonerated at the height of this appeal.”
