Arsenal have hit an all-time low under Arsène Wenger, Chelsea could go for Andy Carroll and Sam Allardyce needs a result
Chelsea have endured three successive goalless draws for the first time and it is inconceivable the scouting department is not exploring forward options. Something has clearly put them off the pursuit of Alexis Sánchez, whom they courted in the summer. Perhaps they believe he is set upon a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. Maybe they feel they cannot compete with the financial package Manchester United could offer. Possibly they deem the costs excessive. Yet, if that avenue is blocked, and with Crystal Palace unlikely to entertain offers for Christian Benteke, there remains the possibility Chelsea will explore Andy Carroll’s availability. Antonio Conte had hoped to secure a targetman over the summer and is apparently an admirer of Carroll, for all the 29-year-old’s patchy injury record. Such a move would once have seemed outlandish. Yet times may have changed. Dominic FifieldContinue reading...

Spurs have grown into their temporary home and, as rivals stumble, Mauricio Pochettino’s side showed against Everton they are looking like their old selves
It may not go down as a season-defining moment but the turn executed by Son Heung‑min 106 seconds after half-time, leaving Jonjoe Kenny plodding through quicksand while Wembley gasped in admiration, held significance of its own. For one thing it led to the goal from Harry Kane that broke the resolve of Everton, who had looked competent at 1-0 down but disintegrated rapidly after the deficit doubled. For another it crystallised a feeling that has, after the awkwardness of early life at Wembley, grown over the past six weeks. Tottenham are, at last, looking consistently like Tottenham again.
Mauricio Pochettino was in no mood to disagree and must feel his side have turned a corner after that patchy period in the autumn when rousing European nights were offset by stodgy afternoons against Burnley, Swansea and West Bromwich Albion.Continue reading...

Thrashing at Tottenham showed Everton’s early-season failings have returned and Allardyce must fix them quick if he hopes to have a future at the club
As Everton’s players headed towards their supporters shortly after the final whistle had blown, it was not immediately obvious who there were more of. The exodus in that corner of Wembley was stark and had started some time before the end of proceedings, with many of those who had travelled from Merseyside and elsewhere clearly keen to get away from the misery taking place in front of them.
It was hard to blame them. There is, after all, only so much any fan can take. The despair has been long-standing but this season particularly so given the hope that sprung from a summer of heavy investment. A seventh-place finish was meant to be the minimum but quickly the blues kicked in for the Blues – a slide into relegation trouble, the less-than-universally-popular arrival of Sam Allardyce, an FA Cup defeat by Liverpool and now this, a 4-0 hammering that could – and should – have been worse.Continue reading...
