Alli was deported after 64 minutes during a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to RB Leipzig on Wednesday, with the English international throwing his water bottle in anger and hitting his boots on the floor.
The 23-year-old has now been left on the bench of Mourinho for the crucial collision of his match against Chelsea while both teams pursue the Champions League qualification.
This is despite the absence of Tottenham & # 39; sb available attacking players with key figures Harr y Kane and Son Heung-min both out due to injury.
& # 39; I think he shows him who's the boss to be honest, & # 39; Crouch said during the pre-match reporting to BT Sport.
& # 39; I think there should be a response that there is a turnout and I think that Mourinho's comments after the game said they were improving when he went off and that we were at the game.
& # 39; Lamela and Ndombele were class when they came up. & # 39;
Colleague BT Sports expert Rio Ferdinand said he could see it from both sides of the argument.
He said: & # 39; Some managers would say : & # 39; I like to see that emotion and that pride and disappointment to be fired & # 39; and Jose Mourinho, on the other hand, clearly says: & # 39; I'm not going to let you do that when you get dropped off. you will see why while looking from the couch. & # 39;
When questioned before the game, Mourinho refused to clarify why Alli was deposed from the beginning of eleven.
& "I'm not sure if you ask every Premier League manager when a player stays away, you ask the same question," he said to BT Sport.
& # 39; Normally other managers leave out any player who wants to, and with me I make a decision of this type, it's also a big story around them, so I'd rather not answer. & # 39;
Tottenham & # 39; s start of their game with Chelsea did not go well, with Chelsea taking a 1-0 lead via a 15th minute goal from Olivier Giroud.
But now with the hearing of the city about their two-year ban on the Champions League and a fine of £ 25 million after & # 39; serious offenses & # 39; & # 39; of the financial rules of Fair Play, their future seems somewhat lacking.
It has yellow I was very worried that star players, including Kevin De Bruyne and B ernardo Silva, could leave, but perhaps the biggest repercussion would be if Guardiola – the man who led City to two consecutive Premier League titles – jumped off.
Discussions have already arisen about who could possibly take over the Etihad if the unthinkable were to happen and a man in the frame is a certain Brendan Rodgers.
Rodgers, along with Mauricio Pochettino, are reportedly drafted by the reigning Premier League champions – who have made a huge impression on the city authorities, who admire his style of football.
And Saturday night is the perfect opportunity for Rodgers to put himself firmly in the fight to eventually take over the Guardiola acquisition in the future.
Rodgers & # 39; rise after his resignation from Liverpool in 2015 is remarkable and he has really exceeded expectations.
The Northern Irishman was closely linked to the Arsenal runway before Unai Emery was named as successor to Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2018 and again when the Spaniard was fired last November.
There is no shortage of admirers for Rodgers, whose reputation grew again after his record time in Scotland at Celtic, with whom he led to an amazing 69-game unbeaten domestic run.
] He found a completely new life in Glasgow and won two Scottish Premiership titles, as well as many Scottish Cups and three League Cups.
It was a matter of time before he got a job again in England and his time came to prove that he had what was needed when Leicester came in February last year after Claude Puel's resignation.
And since his appointment, Leicester has not looked back and, against all odds, has become one of England's most formidable teams in a 12-month period.
A huge factor behind the Foxes' success is its willingness to take risks, giving the club's youth the chance to thrive on the biggest stage of all.
Like James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, Ben Chilwell and Caglar Soyuncu, this season shone for Leicester and gained more confidence as the weeks passed after showing that they could take on the best in the Premier League.
van Harvey Barnes
They all developed their games en masse under Rodgers and at some point this season refused to shy away from a remarkable Premier League title, which is now over and Liverpool hits everyone on their way .
The Foxes have taken the scalp of Tottenham and Arsenal this campaign while humiliating Southampton 9-0 from home in the Premier League's best performance of the season.
They are in a sparkling shape for most of the season and deserve all the accolades that come their way – with the next term of Champions League football most likely.
Jamie Vardy has been in a great form everywhere and led the Premier League scorecards with 17 goals thanks to Maddison and the silky Youri Tielemans who time and again penetrate the path of the former English international.
But it is not only in the middle of the park where they do damage. Barnes and Ayoze Perez pose a real threat to the wings, while Chilwell and Ricardo Pereira have been granted a permit by Rodgers to roam the sides and to overlap to add another attacking threat.
Defensively, they are also extremely stubborn, with Soyuncu and Jonny Evans offering a magnificent shield for goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
They have the third best defense record in the English top flight, behind Liverpool and Sheffield United alone – only admitted 26 times in so many games.
Rodgers supervised a turnaround at the King Power Stadium. When he took over, they seemed a shot of confidence and lacked a true identity, but only a year later the foxes fly high with faith beyond their years thanks to only one man.
And on Saturday, Rodgers and his Leicester players will be sure to add another victim to their list in Guardiola & # 39; s City, still ruining their European ban.
The top of the city will be watching very closely as the action unfolds at the King Power Stadium and they will be watching Rodgers closely to see if he can possibly lead the club through a new era the Etihad can lead.
City, which appeals against UEFA's judgment at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, runs the risk of losing their biggest names if their prohibition is enforced, and what many thought a prolonged period of dominance could end soon.
Although he has remained adamant, he will remain in the club if the prohibition of the Champions League continues, maybe Guardiola just keeps being secret open an eye for another opportunity elsewhere, which may pave the way for Rodgers to take the hotseat.
And City should certainly not be afraid to consider the 47-year-old. His past exploits emphasize that he could usher in a daring revolution in Manchester.
A club that was so used to immediate success and big money names that had attracted the shirt in recent years, might just evolve as Rodgers at the helm. An internal pressure has been exerted on Guardiola to gain the greatest honor, which means that the design of the club of the club has in fact almost weakened during his reign.
But if City is financially restricted because of their UEFA punishment, then they can be brought in to rely on their next generation of talent and Rodgers would not shy away from giving them enormous responsibility.
Perhaps Phil Foden can soon become an important man for City, while Tommy Doyle, Jayden Braaf, James McAtee and Cole Palmer can become stars to look forward to in the near future.
RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann fears that Manchester City & # 39; juicy & # 39; wants compensation for borrower Angelino as Germans eye permanent transfer
Julian Nagelsmann has warned his RB Leipzig side that they will need a & # 39; juicy & # 39; pay compensation if they have to sign Angelino for a permanent deal from Manchester City .
The German outfit signed Angelino on loan for the rest of the season in January and Nagelsmann wants to make the deal permanent.
Nagelsmann, however, believes that Manchester City will demand a large compensation for the full back because the 23-year-old has made a strong start in Germany .
Nagelsmann, speaking to Kicker said of the Spaniard: & Here he needs many things very different from what he did with Pep Guardiola. He adapts incredibly quickly. He is the only newcomer who gets so used to the way I think of football – just offensive –
& # 39; He doesn't worry so much, but intuitively he does many things well. He clearly thinks a lot before the matches and thinks about what he should do and how the trainer is satisfied.
& # 39; He is not that stable in a back four.
& # 39; He has a juicy price tag. We first have to see what is in the wallet and whether the player and the selling club play a role. We will see it in the future. & # 39;
RB Leipzig reportedly has a £ 25 million option to sign Angelino permanently, but it seems that Manchester City has the right to increase the left back rating.
& # 39; One of the best strikers I've seen & # 39 ;: Pep Guardiola greets Jamie Vardy while the Manchester City boss insists the Leicester striker is there with Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero
Pep Guardiola has praised Jamie Vardy as & # 39; one of the best strikers & # 39; he saw.
Manchester City faces Leicester at King Power Stadium on Saturday night and Vardy has in the past proved to be a nuisance to Guardiola.
At his press conference prior to the game on Friday, asked why Vardy thrives against City, Guardiola said: "We play 40 meters in front so it's perfect for him."
& Vardy scores goals against us and all teams. Because even in the box and in the last third, he is one of the best attackers I have ever seen.
& # 39; Intensity and high pressure, many things he is an exceptional player. & # 39;
The Leicester striker has scored six goals in 10 games against City – only Liverpool and Arsenal have admitted Vardy more goals.
Guardiola has worked with Lionel Messi in Barcelona and Sergio Aguero in his state in City, so it was very much praised by the City boss.
The Spanish boss was also very enthusiastic about Leicester as a whole, who sits third in the Premier League table.
& # 39; I said before the home game how impressing I am (with Leicester).
& # 39; They have an incredible organization, good scouting, they know what to do.
& # 39; It's nice to see teams play like this. It is good for English football to have such managers. & # 39;
& # 39; It is not as if we have already lifted the white flag & # 39 ;: Norwich City boss Daniel Farke says the club is not preparing for the championship prior to the Wolves crunch match
They face heavy opposition in the Molineux on Sunday because the Black Country club is 8th in the table and beat Espanyol 4-0 in the Europa League on Thursday night.
At a press conference today, Farke said: "We are planning to make different scenarios, but we are not so inclined to speak of the following season, it is not as if we have already lifted the white flag and are preparing for the championship.
"Our main topic is to be equally successful in the coming weeks, the other topics are not that important."
The German manager, 43, remained positive that his side was the dr on could occur, add: & # 39; For safety, six or seven wins are needed, we know that we need to get as close to 40 points as possible. & # 39;
Norwich produced one of the early shocks of the season when they beat current Manchester City champions, but the young team has won only three other games.
They put down a good performance against Liverpool at home on Saturday, but a 78th minute goal by Sadio Mane broke Canarian hearts.
The East Anglian team must collect points against Wolves to stay away from relegations to rivals Watford and West Ham.
Farke said: & Wolves play well in Europe and a solid team in the Premier League. They have played the last three games nicely. They are also fighting for Europe again next season.
& # 39; I do not see an easy setup for us, it is important for us to focus on our topics to bring our football to the fore. If we do that, we have a chance wherever we go, not just Wolves. & # 39;
But he added: & # 39; You learn from every game. We dominated our last game against Wolves, the game should have been buried during the break. Small details can change your world in football. & # 39;
The last time the two sides met – in December – Farke & # 39; s men lost 2-1 after a late goal from Raul Jimenez.
This time round they will be without right back Sam Byram – who is eliminated for the rest of the season – as well as winger Onel Hernandez and center back Christoph Zimmermann who are both big doubts.
Fellow defender Timm Klose will also miss the game as he recovers from a knee injury.
CALL 1 WEEKEND EXAMPLE: Neymar queues for first Ligue 1 start since January for PSG, despite eruption after losing Borussia Dortmund … while Monaco won the point at breaking into the top four
The Brazil superstar publicly hit his own battle club because he hadn't picked him in recent weeks after making his comeback in their 2-1 Champions League final-16 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.
Now he is probably getting his first start in the league since early January against Paulo Sousa, who sits 10th, unless Tuchel plans to punish him for his outburst.
The Ligue 1 champions will try to return to ways to win against Bordeaux, who have won two of their last nine league games.
The German boss has a strong team to choose from with Colin Dagba and Abdou Diallo being the only two players on the sidelines.
Bordeaux will have a fully fit team to choose from when Sousa's side faces an all-powerful task at the Parc des Prince.
They need a plan to stop Neymar, who scored PSG's only goal on Tuesday and then talked about his frustration as he was kept on the sidelines.
The 28-year-old has missed PSG & # 39; s last three league games due to an injury, but he has revealed that he could be involved.
& # 39; It was not my choice not to play the last games. I wanted to play, I felt good, & said Nemyar.
& # 39; The club was scared and it is I who suffer from it. & # 39;
Neymar's injury came at a bad time as he was absolutely flying with nine goals in his last 10 league games.
In his absence, PSG managed to beat Nantes and Lyon, but their lead at the top was reduced to 10 points last weekend after being held by Amiens in a crazy 4-4 tie.
Elsewhere in Ligue 1 …
First on match day 26 sees Nice taking on Brest . The first are still in with a shout from the European places as they sit four points from the fourth placed Lille. Brest, on the other hand, looks over their shoulder because they are only seven points away from the drop zone.
If you are a fan of one of the many European clubs that pursue Lyon Moussa Dembele, he will come into action on Friday Metz . The men of Rudi Garcia are in eleventh place and Metz is in fifteenth.
High-flying Marseille will cut PSG & # 39; s lead into the top while hosting the 12th Nantes . The side of Andre Villas-Boas has won their last three games because they look like strong favorites to win an automatic Champions League place.
Monaco on the other hand hope that they can get the other qualifying place for Europe & # 39; s elite competition. They are in fifth, three points behind Rennes in third place and, like Marseille, they have won their last three games while traveling to relegation threatened Dijon .
Angers are in terrible shape because they have not won in the league since the end of December and they will be the underdogs again because they welcome sixth Montpellier . A defeat for Angers and they will again fear for their survival in the division.
Lille will have no better chance to build up pressure on Rennes in the fight for European qualification, because they organize relegation guarantees [Toulouse. While Strasbourg in the seventh will be wary of the threat of 19th-placed Amiens who went to PSG last weekend.
It is four defeats on the bounce for Claude Puel & # 39; s Saint Etienne and a trip to eight placed Stade Reims will not be easy. A defeat on Sunday and they could slip into the relegation zone towards the end of the weekend.
Rennes are in the driving position for the last place in the Champions League, but after a wobbly few weeks in which they have seen only one win in their last five, they start to choke? If they don't beat the 17th placed at home Nimes that probably answers that question.
Atletico Madrid plays & # 39; angry and surprised & # 39; by the accusations of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp about playing and acting and Sadio Mane trying to get into the final-16 draw in Champions League
Klopp was not satisfied with the approach of Diego Simeone & side in the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night, and even claimed that they were trying to get Sadio Mane sent.
Andy Robertson said after the home game & # 39; began to fall & # 39; while Virgil van Dijk added: & # 39; That's the way they play, that's Spanish football & # 39 ;.
From the stars v an Atletico is said to be surprised by the complaints, and find that Klopp and Co & # 39; courteous & # 39; must be in defeat and focus on the shortcoming of his own side, according to ESPN .
Mane was withdrawn during the calm of the 1-0 defeat, thanks to an early Saul Niguez attack, and Klopp claimed that he was afraid of a red card for the Senegalese.
& # 39; It's part of football, I don't like it & # 39 ;, said Klopp. "The plan was to get Sadio out of the game with a yellow card.
" I was afraid his opponent would perish if Sadio only took a deep breath. After 30 minutes, three Atletico players were on the ground, not even injured. & # 39;
Klopp also accused the players and fans of celebrating too much after the final whistle: & # 39; She got a result, the stadium wasn't here to play sensational football see, they got the result and so they are happy.
& # 39; There are many happy faces tonight from Atletico.
& # 39; It is only 1-0, we are not 5-0 lower. We don't think it will be easy in our soil. For all Atletico fans who can get a ticket for the game, welcome to Anfield. & # 39;
& # 39; I could have gone to Chelsea or Newcastle & # 39 ;: Former Benfica boss Jorge Jesus reveals that he swam Premier League clubs this summer
Former Benfica coach Jorge Jesus has revealed that he refused the opportunity to take charge of Newcastle and Chelsea this summer.
The 65-year-old was available after retiring as coach of the Saudi Arabian Al-Hilal after a fight with the club board.
In an interview with the Brazilian channel Fox TV, the Portuguese coach explained that he could have been the successor to Maurizio Sarri on Stamford Bridge.
& # 39; If it was the money, I could have stayed in Al-Hilal. My agent does not want me to come to Brazil. I could also have gone to clubs in England, & Jesus said.
He also revealed that he had been contacted by Newcastle after the departure of Rafael Benítez.
Jesus agreed to become a coach of the Brazilian club Flamengo on 1 June.
Chelsea eventually recruited Frank Lampard, while Newcastle appointed Steve Bruce as manager on July 17.
I want Sanchez to stay! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals that £ 560,000 per week Alexis is in his plans with Man United … and says he will play more despite scoring only five goals in 18 months in the club
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Alexis Sanchez to stay in Manchester United and expects him to prove his critics wrong.
Sanchez has been interested in Series A clubs, with the European transfer window open until 2 September, but his wages can be an obstacle to any movement.
United-manager Solskjaer admitted that Sanchez is lagging behind the rest of his team for a few weeks after his return from the Copa America with a hamstring injury.
United organizes friendly competitions behind closed doors at Carrington in an effort to accelerate Sanchez & # 39; s return to fitness.
The shape of the 30-year-old attacker is of greater importance, with only three Premier League goals since a move from Arsenal in January 2018.
& # 39; Alexis is so & # 39 ; n professional and he comes to work very hard every day & # 39 ;, said Solskjaer.
& # 39; He is part of our team and is a really good player. He has now had three weeks, so he is a few weeks behind the rest, but is almost there. We don't have the largest forward row in numbers, so Alexis can eventually play a lot more games than you might expect. We expect that he will be good at this club, he is quality. & # 39;
Sources near the player claim that he wants to leave Old Trafford, but Solskjaer insisted that Sanchez, whose pay could potentially hit £ 560,000 a week, works hard to return.
& # 39; We have had a game with closed doors behind and he does a little extra & # 39; s, & # 39; said Solskjaer. "He will gradually be integrated into more and more playing time.
"We will play more behind closed doors, because with one game a week it is now hard to keep everyone ticking."
There is also a question mark about Paul's future Pogba. His brother, Mathias, claimed that the midfielder & # 39; waits & # 39; to leave for Real Madrid.
In an interview with El Chiringuito Mathias Pogba said: "He will have a hard time because what he wants is not going to happen, now it is a bit late." I don't think he's worth 200 million euros, but now the football world is like that. United will ask a lot, but not 200.
& # 39; It's a delicate situation, but the player has his personal goals, if you have to leave, well, that's it. I cannot assure you that he will stay with United. We know he wanted to move, but he is not to blame. He is waiting. We will see what happens. His dream is to win the Champions League. & # 39;
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane said Friday: & # 39; Paul is a player for Manchester United and we must respect that. & # 39;
& # 39; Unfortunately I cannot grant your request & # 39 ;: Jurgen Klopp & # 39; s hilarious answer of 262 words to a 10-year-old fan of Manchester United who wrote the German boss … asking if he had to make Liverpool LOSE!
Liverpool fans getting ready for a big party for what probably seems to be the first top flight title on their part in 30 years.
Daragh Curley had taken against the crushing unbeaten showing of Liverpool in the Premier League this term, so he decided to do something about it. .. by writing a letter to Red's boss Jurgen Klopp asking never to win again!
& # 39; The letter read: Dear Jurgen Klopp, my name is Daragh. I am 10 years old. I'm going to Glenswilly N.S in Donegal. I support Man United and the reason I am writing is to complain.
& # 39; Liverpool wins too many games. If you win nine more games, you have the best undefeated run in English football. Being a fan of United is very sad.
& # 39; So let them lose the next time Liverpool plays. You just have to let the other tam score. I hope I convinced you not to win the competition or to win another competition. Sincerely, Daragh.
Daragh was astonished when he received an official response from Klopp, who although he politely rejected his request, also offered words of wisdom to give the young fan of United hope for the future.
Klopp replied that he cannot lose Liverpool out of free will, but also had a duty to make Reds fans happy all over the world, saying: unfortunately on this occasion I cannot grant your request, yet by choice.
& As much as you want Liverpool to lose, it's my job to do all I can to help Liverpool win, because there are millions of people around the world who want this to happen, so I really don't want to disappoint them. & # 39;
Klopp also explained to the 10-year-old how dominance was not permanent and the cycle of football will lead to ultimate change.
The Reds boss then praised his passion and how he paid tribute to Manchester United as a supporter.
& # 39; I can safely say that one thing that won't change is your passion for football and for your club. Manchester United is lucky to have you.
& # 39; Although our clubs are big rivals, we also share a lot of respect for each other. This is what football is all about for me. & # 39;
