Pochettino backs Tottenham to improve at Wembley

I think Lloris is close to Liverpool's Simon Mignolet in terms of ability.

But Marco Alonso popped up to score his second of the game, in the 88th minute, snatching all three points for Chelsea.

The Kenyan midfielder, who has been ever-present for Spurs since joining them from Southampton, had a hard time in the middle of the park, losing possession of the ball fairly often. "Playing that way we can win lots of games".

Asked what instructions he had received from manager Antonio Conte, Luiz said: "Run".

Tottenham fans have seemingly taken to social media to blame Wanyama for his performance in the London derby, believing he was "awful" and was at fault for Alonso's late victor, although they could quite have easily blamed Lloris as equally.

"I don't have to pinch myself but I didn't expect it", said German Wagner, who was plucked from the Borussia Dortmund reserve team job in 2015.

"We will see", he said.

Los Angeles Dodgers land Curtis Granderson from New York Mets
Granderson batted just.228 in 111 games with NY this season but has hit 19 home runs and driven in 52 runs. To make room on the 40-man roster, Los Angeles designated right-hander Dylan Floro for assignment.

The Terriers, only the third promoted side to ever win their opening two games, beat Newcastle 1-0 with impressive Australian Aaron Mooy scoring the only goal, a delightful curling effort in the second half.

Premier League clubs are due to vote on the suggestion next month and, if the plan is agreed, this could be the last summer when England's top-flight clubs can continue to buy players up until the end of August.

However, the north London club have struggled at the national stadium in recent years, most notably in the Champions League last season, and their poor form continued with a 2-1 defeat to rivals Chelsea on Sunday. I'm very happy when I see this type of game. It's hard for some players to concentrate on the season.

Conte had already voiced concerns about needing reinforcements to his threadbare-looking squad, but even if the Chelsea board managed to oblige the Italian with the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Alex Sandro or Danny Drinkwater - three players being constantly linked with big-money moves to Stamford Bridge - any deals were not going to be completed ahead of the Wembley showdown. They pulled together a makeshift team, this is certainly not their first XI, and they've shown something today.

"I thought the team played really well and it's not fair to blame the game on Wembley, because Wembley is for me one of the best places in the world, if not the one place to play football".

"They haven't done very well", he said. Even if you see Marcos (Alonso) in the end, he was very exhausted, but still he made that run to score.

"Eden (Hazard) still has to come back, Tiemoure Bakayoko played his first game, so physically he is not at this best but it was a very good game to start for him".
