According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham are set to launch a summer bid for reported-Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin. The Saints are believed to rate Schneiderlin in the £20million bracket and blocked the Frenchman’s exit last summer.
The Standard claims that Spurs are set to offer either England winger Andros Townsend, or young French midfielder Benjamin Stambouli in part-exchange to sign the highly-rated French international midfielder.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men had a move for Schneiderlin blocked last summer, as the Saints had already lost a raft of their key players to other Premier League clubs. However, they believe they can successfully secure his signature this summer because of his relationship with former-Saints boss Pochettino. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s winning run will be put to the test by relegation-threatened Burnley on Saturday at Turf Moor. The Gunners recent form has saw them considered by many as potential Premier League title outsiders.
It is a game on paper that Arsene Wenger’s side should and must win if they are to maintain their position in the automatic Champions League qualification spots and keep alive even the faintest hopes of winning the title.
The best way to describe Burnley this season is probably spirited. They unexpectedly gained promotion through sheer graft and being well organised last season. This season has been a similar story, although they may just come up short in the quality department in the Premier League. .......Read more here.....

The first shot on goal came on five minutes. Spurs striker Harry Kane curled an effort towards goal from the edge of the area, only for David Ospina to produce a fine save. However, it was Arsenal that took the lead on 11 minutes.
