    Tottenham Hotspur's fixtures for the 2021/22 Premier League season have been confirmed. Spurs, who finished seventh last campaign, will take on champions Man City at home on the opening day, before travelling to Wolves a week later. The Lilywhites really do have a tough start to the season with Chelsea at home and Arsenal away to come in September.

    At home to Crystal Palace on Boxing Day and Watford away on New Year's Day, the second north London derby of the season comes in January as the Gunners make the short trip to N17. Spurs then bring the 2021/22 campaign to a close on the final day with an away trip to Norwich City.

    It was a false start against Everton on opening day, but Mourinho-ball soon began to pay off for Spurs. They kicked things into overdrive with a famous 6-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, and by December, they were staring in the face of a legitimate title challenge.

    Mourinho was quick to play things down, however, and his claim that Tottenham were "a pony in a horse race" was soon proven right. They lost to Liverpool and Chelsea in December as their form tailed off, and by April, he was out of a job.

    The temporary appointment of Ryan Mason hasn't been the disaster many predicted, but two defeats in their last five league matches buried any residual hopes they had of making the Champions League.

    Their win over Leicester on the final day was a real source of optimism - though there are some Spurs fans who would have rather finished 8th, such is the roaring excitement about their involvement in the Conference League.

    Leicester missed out on the Champions League for a second successive season after a 4-2 defeat to Tottenham on the final day saw them finish in fifth, while Spurs secured their European place.

    The Foxes needed results to go their way elsewhere, but had to secure their own victory first to ensure the best possible chance of finishing in the top four.

    It began well for them too as Leicester were awarded a penalty inside 15 minutes. Toby Alderweireld caught Jamie Vardy around the ankles, and the striker fired home from the spot (18). But just before half-time, Harry Kane (41) finished superbly to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot - the joint-highest number of wins in history with Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer - in possibly his last game for Tottenham.

    The second half followed a similar pattern. Leicester were awarded a second penalty shortly after the break, won by Vardy again after a tangle with Davinson Sanchez. The striker scored in an almost identical fashion too, slotting home another confident penalty (52).

    With Chelsea trailing Aston Villa and Leicester ahead, they were in pole position to finish in the Champions League places, but a late flurry from Tottenham condemned the Foxes to the Europa League. The second equaliser was a bizarre moment as a Heung-Min Son corner defected off Kasper Schmeichel's hand (76) and into the back of the net.

    A Gareth Bale double (87, 90+6) then fired Tottenham into seventh, securing their own place in the Europa Conference League next season. They have also finished a point and place above Arsenal.

    Tottenham were booed off by their returning fans as Aston Villa fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 and dent Spurs' European hopes.

    Spurs did briefly give their 10,000 fans something to cheer about after eight minutes as Steven Bergwijn fired home powerfully from just inside the box, but Sergio Reguilon's shocking own goal from a sliced clearance brought Villa level (20).

    Spurs were woeful for much of the first half as Ollie Watkins capitalised on another Reguilon error for his 14th league goal of the season (39) as the hosts were booed off at half-time following several missed Villa chances.

    Emi Martinez kept Villa ahead with several saves as Spurs upped the ante in the second half, and though Villa were put under pressure in spurts by the hosts, they had fine chances of their own and were good value for the three points, hitting the post through substitute Carney Chukwuemeka in stoppage time.

    The defeat summed up the mood around manager-less Spurs, with Harry Kane looking to leave the club, and the hope of any European football next season now under threat. They sit seventh, which would earn them a place in the new Europa Conference League next season. They must beat Leicester on the final day and hope West Ham lose at home to Southampton to move into sixth place and a Europa League spot. Villa stay 11th.

    Harry Kane's 22nd Premier League goal of the season helped Tottenham move up to sixth following a routine 2-0 win over Wolves.

    Kane struck on the stroke of half-time after being released by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and the Dane tucked in Spurs' second following the interval after Rui Patricio had diverted Gareth Bale's shot straight into this path.

    Fabio Silva endured a profligate afternoon in front of goal as he missed a gilt-edged chance to haul Wolves back into the contest, with Nuno Espirito Santo's side consigned to a 15th league defeat of the season.

    The result sees Spurs leapfrog West Ham into sixth place on 59 points, five points adrift of Chelsea in fourth with two games remaining, while Wolves stay in 12th place.

    Tottenham's hopes of finishing the season inside the Premier League's top four took a huge blow as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at Leeds United.

    Spurs' interim boss Ryan Mason had targeted four wins to finish the season and with Leicester's surprise defeat at Newcastle on Friday, the door had just been opened for Spurs in the race to qualify for next season's Champions League.

    However, they suffered an early set back when Stuart Dallas gave the hosts the lead in the 13th minute.

    Tottenham cancelled out Dallas' opener to draw level in the 25th minute through Heung-Min Son, but Leeds regained the lead just before half-time as Patrick Bamford converted Ezgjan Alioski's cut-back from close range.

    Spurs, who saw two Harry Kane goals correctly ruled out for offside, had chances in the second half but Illan Meslier kept out efforts from Serge Aurier and Giovani Lo Celso before substitute Rodrigo added Leeds' third to seal all three points.

    Gareth Bale scored a brilliant hat-trick as Tottenham shook off their Carabao Cup final misery and kept alive their Champions League hopes with a 4-0 win over relegated Sheffield United.

    Bale's 36th-minute opener, a fine instinctive flick from close range, was scant reward for Spurs' first-half dominance, but though Heung-Min Son saw an effort after the break (52) ruled out for offside, the Welshman would strike twice more legitimately and emphatically.

    Bale brought up his 50th Premier League goal shortly after the hour mark when he was set up by Son on a Spurs breakaway and hit a fierce third without breaking stride (69) to fire a further reminder of his enduring potency.

    The Blades, for whom John Fleck escaped punishment after a VAR review after catching Giovani Lo Celso on the head, had twice built momentum before conceding but Bale's third goal ended their fleeting resistance and Son completed the rout with a brilliant curled finish 13 minutes from time.

    Heung-Min Son and Gareth Bale completed a remarkable 2-1 comeback win for Tottenham against Southampton in Ryan Mason's first game as interim boss, boosting their top-four hopes after Spurs supporters had earlier staged a protest against club chairman Daniel Levy.

    A turbulent week for the club, which has already seen them sign up to and then exit the Super League amid fan outrage, and surprisingly sack head coach Jose Mourinho, will take another twist on Sunday in their Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, but against Southampton, the drama fell in their favour, with a late VAR call allowing Son to strike from the spot.

    The visitors had bounced back from their FA Cup semi-final disappointment impressively to lead through Danny Ings' header on 30 minutes but Spurs, who had been below their best in the first half, improved after the break and replied with Bale's bending effort on the hour.

    on thought he had completed the comeback when he swept home on 74 minutes but referee David Coote ruled it out after a VAR check, with Lucas Moura offside, however, the officials at Stockley Park judged in Spurs' favour when Moussa Djenepo caught Sergio Reguilon just inside the box, allowing the South Korea forward to eventually find the net from 12 yards.

    The winning start for 29-year-old Mason - the youngest manager in Premier League history - lifts Tottenham up to sixth, two points off the top four having played a game more than the teams around them, and they will head into their cup final on a positive note.


  • The Last Word On Spurs reacted to the sacking of Jose Mourinho along with the news of a potential European Super League in a crazy 24 hours for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

    The Portuguese replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs manager in November 2019 and guided the club to sixth in the Premier League last season.

    They are currently seventh, having picked up two points from their past three league games, and were knocked out of the Europa League in March. Spurs face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on 25 April.

    On Sunday, Tottenham were one of six Premier League clubs to announce they were joining a new European Super League, but it is not related to Mourinho's sacking. Mourinho's coaching staff of Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have also been sacked.

    This season, Mourinho - who previously managed Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto - suffered 10 league defeats in a single campaign for the first time in his managerial career.

    No Premier League side has lost more points from winning positions this season than Spurs, who have dropped 20. Mourinho's last game in charge was a 2-2 league draw at Everton on Friday.

    Former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason, who has been working with the club's academy, will took first-team training on Monday.

    Harry Kane emphatically punished two defensive errors before suffering an ankle injury as Tottenham and Everton played out a thrilling 2-2 draw which did little for either sides' European ambitions.

    After an uneventful opening 27 minutes at Goodison Park, Michael Keane's costly defensive header set up Kane to ruthlessly volley Spurs into the lead, but Everton hit back inside four minutes when Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a penalty after Sergio Reguilon had fouled James Rodriguez in the area.

    Everton were superior in every department from there on and took a deserved lead shortly after the hour when Sigurdsson haunted his former club again with a clinical finish from Seamus Coleman's cutback.

    But just as Spurs had relinquished their first-half lead, the Toffees gifted Kane his second six minutes later when a defensive mix-up between Keane and Mason Holgate ricocheted the ball into the path of the England international, and he rifled an unstoppable volley into the top corner.

    Everton could have snatched all three points at the death but substitute Josh King was thwarted by Hugo Lloris before Richarlison blazed the rebound over, though a late ankle injury to Kane was of greater concern to Spurs with just nine days to go until the Carabao Cup final.

    The draw leaves Everton in eighth, six points outside the fourth and final Champions League spot, while Spurs remain a point and place ahead in seventh.

    Manchester United came from behind once again to win 3-1 at Tottenham and dent the hosts' top-four hopes with just seven Premier League games remaining.

    Edinson Cavani had a goal controversially disallowed on 33 minutes after VAR spotted a flailing arm from Scott McTominay on Heung-Min Son in the build-up,, while the South Korea forward himself put Spurs ahead before the break with a far-post finish from Lucas Moura's centre (40).

    United levelled early in the second half as Fred converted a few yards out after Cavani's shot had been parried by Hugo Lloris into the Brazilian's path (57).

    The visitors went ahead as substitute Mason Greenwood's brilliant ball was converted by the diving header of Cavani (79), and Greenwood rounded off a brilliant second-half performance for the visitors, smashing home after fantastic work from Paul Pogba to assist (90+6).

    The result leaves Jose Mourinho's Tottenham six points behind fourth-place West Ham with time running out to bring Champions League football back to the club next season.

    Joe Willock's late equaliser secured a deserved - and vital - 2-2 draw for Newcastle against Tottenham, with Spurs missing the chance to go fourth.

    All eyes were on Newcastle after a dismal defeat to Brighton two weeks ago, but the international break seemed to breathe new life into the team as they deservedly went ahead when Joelinton (28) fired home.

    But the lead was short-lived as Kane bundled in the equaliser less than two minutes later (30), before powering home a superb second not long after (34).

    Much like the first-half goals, it was a short period towards the end of the game that ultimately decided the outcome. Kane spurned a golden chance to wrap up the three points and his hat-trick when he clipped the post, before Arsenal loanee Willock (86) found the net via the underside of the crossbar two minutes later.

    Tottenham miss the chance to go into the top four, instead moving into fifth, two points behind Chelsea.

    Tottenham put a difficult week behind them as they breathed new life into their bid to secure European football next season with a 2-0 victory at Aston Villa on Super Sunday.

    Jose Mourinho's side, who were under pressure after defeat to north London rivals Arsenal last weekend and a Europa League exit at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb in midweek, took the lead midway through the first half thanks to Carlos Vinicius' first Premier League goal.

    Harry Kane, who partnered Vinicius in attack, put the smiles firmly back on Spurs' faces, scoring from the penalty spot to seal an important three points after winning the penalty following a coming together with Matty Cash.

    Victory sees Spurs, who ease the pressure off Mourinho, move above Everton and Liverpool into sixth, one point behind West Ham in fifth, and three behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

    Tottenham were sent crashing out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb, losing 3-0 after Mislav Orsic's stunning hat-trick wiped out Spurs' 2-0 lead from the first leg.

    Harry Kane's double last Thursday had put Tottenham in pole position to qualify for the quarter-finals, but they were made to pay for another horrible performance in Croatia.

    Looking for a reaction after their 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in Sunday's north London derby, Spurs were tepid in the first half but kept their aggregate lead intact and were 45 minutes from a gritty path to the last eight.

    But forward Orsic produced an inspired hat-trick. His opener (62) was a thunderous, curling effort before slotting home from Iyayi Atiemwen's cross (82) to send the game into extra time. He then hammered home another superb effort in the added period (106) to produce one of the shocks of the round and send Spurs crashing out.

    Tottenham were unable to reply to any of Orsic's wonderful goals, despite Jose Mourinho using all of the attacking players at his disposal, capping another miserable evening and leaving questions marks over where the team now goes in the remainder of the season.

    Arsenal fought back to beat Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday - but players, managers, and pundits were split on the key decisions in the north London derby.

    Ultimately, after a stunning Erik Lamela Rabona, Martin Odegaard's goal and an Alexandre Lacazette penalty sealed a comeback victory for the Gunners, which hit Tottenham's top-four hopes.

    But that is only part of the story. After the final whistle, there was debate and discussion about whether Davinson Sanchez had actually fouled Lacazette for the decisive spot-kick, and whether Lamela was rightly awarded a second yellow card and sent off for throwing an arm into Kieran Tierney..

    Tottenham took one step closer to the Europa League quarter-finals as Harry Kane's double secured a comfortable 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday night.

    Kane's predatory finish put the hosts in front (25) before the striker pounced on a slack clearance from Kevin Theophile-Catherine to double his tally for the evening (70).

    There would be no second European hat-trick of the season for the England captain, who was replaced late on as a precautionary measure following a challenge from Arijan Ademi.

    The result puts Tottenham in a strong position ahead of the last 16 second leg on March 18 as Jose Mourinho's side now turn their focus towards facing Arsenal in the North London derby.
