UEL: Tottenham vs Linzer ASK


Tottenham Hotspur got a chance out of last weekend's shock draw with West Ham United when they met LASK Linz in the Europa League. Spurs have somehow led 3 goals but to draw 3-3 against their London counterpart, causing a little bit of difficulty in starting their campaign. Austria's LASK team entered this Group J opening match in good form, having won 6 out of 9 domestic matches.

Whether it's complacency or, as Jose Mourinho saw, Tottenham's belated demise against West Ham will take a long time to overcome. In the best time of an hour, Tottenham were at their best, with Harry Kane assisting once and scoring 2 as he showed again why he was the one. the best players in the world. However, 1 point is all Mourinho's army got after the London derby. brought them 8 points of uncertainty after the first 5 matches in the Premier League. Recall, however, a 6-1 win over Manchester United, plus a quarter-final place at the EFL Cup, and it's easy to see why so many are excited. Mourinho's goal this season is ultimately to win a title, and in the Europa League, he has achieved it. Spurs suffered an unexpected 32-team defeat against Gent last season, but they have successfully made it through the group stage in the last four times. This year they have LASK, Ludogorets Razgrad and Royal Antwerp - there are hardly any giants, so Mourinho will hope for the safest possible path to qualify for the knockout stages and try to settle domestic match. With trips to Burnley and Antwerp next week, followed by a visit by Brighton & Hove Albion, rotation will be key for the North London club. at the same time trying to settle domestic matches.
