Tottenham are all about momentum so why would Poch want to rest Kane?
put up with him looking lost for much longer. They want to see a boss who is decisive and has belief in what he does.
And they want to see a team which reflects that.
I get where Moshiri was coming from. He’s invested a lot of money, will invest far more in a new stadium and wants to ensure they have a winning team when they move into it.
For me, that means backing the manager. If you are going to talk about where you want the club to be and what your ambitions are, then you have to give him the resources to meet those demands.
Silva said he would have to get rid of players before he brings any more in. That’s understandable with a big squad, but really it is time to back the manager and see if he’s the right man to lead Everton into the future the owner talks about. AS I’ve already detailed in my words on Harry Kane (above), I’m a great believer in getting games won before you rest players.
So it’s interesting to see how Liverpool react in the next few weeks to their first real blip of the season, which, I think, was brought on by themselves. Any side can be forgiven for losing at Manchester City, especially the way Jurgen Klopp’s team played at the Etihad.
But maybe he should have reacted by putting Mo Salah (left) and Roberto Firmino in from the start at Wolves in the FA Cup.
Win the game, then rest them, rather than chase the game.
It’s gone now, of course, but I felt it brought unnecessary pressure at Brighton, when Liverpool need to keep the temperature down going into each game.
Maybe you could feel that in the performance at Wolves. But let’s take some positives. They blooded a few youngsters, including 16-year-old centre-back Ki-Jana Hoever (below) – and that is always a huge process for a club.
Credit to Klopp for nudging out a 1-0 victory against the Seagulls after a couple of defeats, but there’s still the question of whether Liverpool’s momentum has been stalled a little – and only the next few weeks will tell us.
WINNING HABIT: Harry Kane simply wants to score and to make Spurs a success
