Tottenham latest, reflections on Manchester United draw, bid rejected for youngster

WH Lane

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Monday evening.

Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason says there are plenty of positives to take of the side's 0-0 draw with Manchester United at White Hart Lane yesterday.

The midfielder arguably had the side's best chance late on in the game as he blasted over after latching on to Harry Kane's through ball.

He told the Spurs website: "We had the momentum in the second half and the crowd was with us, we had a few chances, but United had some clear cut chances before the break so, like I said, the 0-0 was probably fair.

“United have got world class players all over the pitch. From their centre midfielders to their strikers, they’ve got some quality players, but I think we stuck together as a team."

Ben Davies was happy to be part of a side that ended up thwarting United's illustrious attacking talents, though they had Hugo Lloris in goal to thank for a lot of their work.

The left-back said: “Sometimes you have to weather the storm at the start of the game when you come up against good teams like United but I think we did that and, come the end of the game, we looked the stronger team."

Spurs have rejected a bid for Alex Pritchard from Brentford according to the Daily Mail, with Spurs hoping the 21-year-old is capable of performing for the first team.

He has been impressive so far this season for the Bees, who were hoping to do a deal in the upcoming January window.

TalkSport are picking up on reports from Argentina that they have made an approach for 17-year-old Newell's Old Boys striker, but his club's president Guillermo Lorente has been quoted saying:

"The proposal from Roma could bring more advantages than Tottenham.

"In Rome there is the possibility that Ezequiel could stay at Newell's for another year while Tottenham only another six months."
