In losing 3-0 to Spurs on Monday night, Jose Mourinho suffered his worst ever home defeat in any competition as a manager. The final whistle felt massive. Spurs players celebrated a convincing victory on the pitch while Mourinho went to applaud those fans who had stuck around til the end - Old Trafford had looked increasingly empty even before Lucas Moura's excellent goal had sealed the match. Afterwards, Mourinho claimed his side had actually performed really well, saying, "from a strategic point of view we didn't lose, the tactical point of view we didn't lose, but we lost." So what actually happened? How the teams lined up and why As he has done in the past against Spurs, Mourinho altered his usual 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 shape to mirror his opponent's 3-5-2. It worked in a tight 1-0 win last season: The thinking behind it is Spurs play Harry Kane as an obvious 'nine' but Dele Alli or another (on Monday night, Lucas Moura) are encouraged to run in behind and … [Read more...] about Decoding the defeat: What on earth happened to Man Utd, why did it happen and where did it go wrong?
Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Manchester Citywas notable for many things but their determination to play out from the back is of particular note. Unai Emery, the three-time Europa League and one time Ligue 1 winner, has brought pedigree and ideas to Arsenal's post-Arsene Wenger era. Those changes will take time and on Sunday, City were comfortable winners in the end. "It's the manager's fault," Sam Allardyce, the one-time English Third Division winner, told talkSPORT. "Don't ask someone to do against Manchester City what you shouldn't do". So, why do teams do it? Is Emery right to persist? Why isn't Allardyce the Real Madrid manager yet? Why teams play out from the back The obvious reason for deciding to pass out from the back is to ensure your team keeps the ball. By doing this, your players are in charge of making decisions, can dictate where the ball goes and can arrive into the opponent's half in an attacking shape of your choosing. If you lose the ball, it's your fault. … [Read more...] about Why do teams play out from the back, why are Man City good at it and why did it not work for Arsenal?

PARIS — A year after stunning the tennis world by winning the French Open for her initial tour-level title, Jelena Ostapenko is again in rare company: a first-round loser as the defending champion at a Grand Slam tournament.Something even more unusual happened at Roland Garros, too: Venus Williams was beaten in her opening match at a second consecutive major, the only time in her lengthy, distinguished career she's had such early back-to-back exits. All in all, it was quite a Day 1 at the only Grand Slam site that gets things started on a Sunday. There already is certain to be at least one first-time French Open finalist, because 2010 champion Francesca Schiavone and 2012 runner-up Sara Errani joined 2017 champ Ostapenko and 2002 runner-up Williams on the way out of the bottom half of the draw.Ostapenko's high-risk game produced far fewer rewards than problems, with 48 unforced errors to only 22 winners as she bowed out to 67th-ranked Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine 7-5, 6-3 at … [Read more...] about Why did it take so long to arrest the Golden State Killer suspect?
