Match ends, Tottenham Hotspur 1, West Ham United 2.
Il a été un pilier de l’objectif de Manchester United pendant plus d’une décennie, mais l’avenir de David de Gea à Old Trafford est-il maintenant en jeu ?
L’Espagnol a commis une terrible erreur en offrant à Said Benrahma un but qui s’est avéré être le vainqueur de West Ham dimanche, ce qui a nui aux espoirs des Red Devils de terminer dans le top quatre de la Premier League.
Le joueur de 32 ans a maintenant commis quatre erreurs menant à un but dans toutes les compétitions cette saison, le plus commun de tous les joueurs de Premier League, avec Hugo Lloris.
En février, De Gea a déclaré que les négociations contractuelles à Old Trafford “finir dans le bon sens” et il “appréciait ça” – mais pour de nombreux fans et experts, c’est peut-être une erreur de trop.
“S’il est en négociations contractuelles, faire des erreurs comme celle-là n’aidera jamais”, a déclaré l’ancien attaquant de Liverpool, Tottenham et Stoke, Peter Crouch, à BT Sport.
“Il a été un gardien de but de premier ordre au fil des ans, mais pour le moment, il a l’impression de faire de grosses erreurs dans de très gros matchs.
“David de Gea a eu un choc, nous ne pouvons pas l’habiller. Vous ne pouvez pas du tout le justifier, c’est une terrible erreur.”
L’ancien milieu de terrain de Newcastle et de Tottenham, Jermaine Jenas, a été tout aussi critique, déclarant à BT Sport : “C’est plus que choquant. Son équipe contrôle totalement ce match et en laisse entrer un comme ça. Il se connaîtra.”
L’ancien défenseur de Manchester United, Rio Ferdinand, a ajouté : “C’est une grave erreur. Il en assumera l’entière responsabilité.
“Son pied gauche glisse légèrement mais ce n’est pas une excuse, il a un contact total avec le ballon. Ce n’est pas comme s’il s’étirait et qu’il mettait le bout des doigts dessus.”
“Chacun doit prendre ses responsabilités”
Le pedigree de De Gea ne fait aucun doute. Il a fait plus de 500 apparitions à United depuis son arrivée de l’Atletico Madrid en 2011, remportant le titre de joueur de l’année du club à quatre reprises et remportant les trophées de la Premier League, de la FA Cup, de la Coupe de la Ligue et de la Ligue Europa.
Sans surprise, le manager Erik ten Hag a pris la défense du joueur, soulignant qu’il est en lice pour le Golden Glove de Premier League après avoir gardé 15 draps propres jusqu’à présent cette saison – deux de plus que quiconque.
“Les erreurs font partie du football et dans cette équipe, il faut y faire face et rebondir car c’est un sport d’équipe”, a déclaré le Néerlandais.
“Au cours de la saison, il est celui qui a le plus de draps propres et nous l’avons également fait en équipe. Cela peut arriver, c’est le football mais tout le monde doit prendre ses responsabilités.”
Mais avec son contrat qui doit expirer à la fin de la saison, des erreurs comme dimanche ne sont pas susceptibles d’aider les négociations et de laisser le patron des Red Devils avec une décision à prendre.
Ferdinand dit que c’est la capacité de De Gea avec ses pieds plutôt qu’un problème avec son arrêt de tir qui peut inciter Ten Hag à faire un changement.
“Le point d’interrogation à son sujet, je pense, est de savoir s’il est assez bon avec ses pieds pour jouer à la manière d’Erik ten Hag”, a-t-il déclaré.
“En termes d’arrêt de tir, il a fait une erreur aujourd’hui – mais ce n’est pas le domaine sur lequel je le questionne. Est-il un footballeur assez bon pour jouer pour Manchester United?”
“La seule personne qui peut répondre à cette question est Erik ten Hag et nous le saurons à la fin de cette saison.”
Crouch a ajouté: “C’est étrange, car il a concédé des buts sur ses propres erreurs, mais il a également gardé les draps les plus propres de la ligue.”
“Il est vraiment temps pour United de quitter De Gea” – votre point de vue
Jonny : Honnêtement, je ne sais pas ce qui est arrivé à De Gea cette saison. D’un concurrent constant du joueur de l’année à une responsabilité encore plus grande que Lloris en seulement un an. Renouveler son contrat semble désormais être l’une des pires erreurs que nous puissions commettre.
André : Il est vraiment temps pour United de quitter De Gea. Son manque de qualité dans la distribution du ballon est déjà en contradiction avec ce que Ten Hag semble vouloir de son gardien de but, et il y a tout simplement trop d’erreurs dans son jeu maintenant.
Richard: Dans un match que nous devons gagner, De Gea ne nous rend aucun service. Gardien de but catastrophique.
Seth : Quand nous disons que De Gea n’est pas assez bon, ce n’est qu’un exemple. Le nombre d’erreurs qu’il a commises ces dernières années, notamment sous Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] et maintenant sous Ten Hag c’est incroyable. Il n’y a aucun moyen qu’il soit titulaire la saison prochaine si nous voulons aller de l’avant.
Calum : Malheureusement, il y a très peu de place pour le sentiment dans le sport si vous cherchez à construire une équipe gagnante, il est donc temps pour De Gea d’y aller à mon avis.

Everton 3-0 Newcastle: Sean Dyche’s side in ‘psychologically massive’ climb out of bottom three
Just 20 days after being plunged into the relegation zone with a huge feeling of injustice, Everton are already out of it.
An unprecedented 10-point deduction saw them drop from 14th position to one place off the bottom but Sean Dyche’s side are on the road to recovery.
The Toffees left it late on Thursday night to beat Newcastle 3-0 at Goodison Park, but the three points allowed them to leapfrog Luton Town and drag themselves out of the danger zone.
On moving out of the bottom three, Dyche told BBC Radio 5 Live: “We moved into it. Without those 10 points [deducted], we’d be in an amazing position – 20 points would be amazing relatively to the last two seasons here.
“We will see what the appeal brings. The mentality is key for me, we took a knock but there have been a lot of knocks here over the last couple of years.
“But the team mentality is growing. I can’t emphasise it enough, the commitment to each other and the connection is a powerful thing because I know we’ve got quality.”
Win a ‘reward’ for fans’ backing
The feeling of injustice following the biggest sporting sanction handed down in top-flight history remains raw at Goodison Park.
Before the game, the Premier League anthem was loudly jeered once more while new protest cards were published and held aloft with ‘Protecting the few, not the many’ printed on them.
But the anger that had simmered beforehand turned to sheer joy by full-time.
Two players who have been so important under Dyche came to the fore once more, with Dwight McNeil scoring his 16th career goal, with 14 of those coming under the ex-Burnley boss, while Abdoulaye Doucoure netted his 10th under the manager.
There was time for summer signing Beto to get his first in the league too to give Everton a thoroughly deserved victory.
Everton came into the game following a 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Saturday and their away home has been excellent so far, but it is their troubles at home that has needed fixing.
They did this in emphatic fashion to collect just their second victory in front of their fans this season and achieve back-to-back league wins for the first time under Dyche.
The viewpoint from fans and pundits has been that is it a ‘good season’ to be docked points as Luton, Burnley and Sheffield United – who currently occupy the relegation spots – face an immediate return to the Championship.
Dyche said: “With so many enforced changes, I was so pleased. You have heard me talk about the mentality this season and you can sense a connected group. We are onto something.
“I don’t change my storyline, my value is a season’s work. The ups and downs of it are what you have to control as a manager and the results too but the end of the season is where it is count.
“The points [deduction] is done therefore let’s get on with it and the players have been responsive to that and parked it.
“We cannot guarantee anything [deducted points] coming back but we have to keep playing hard like we were anyway. The performances levels have been good and them into winning performances.
“It was a good performance against Manchester United [a 3-0 defeat in their previous home game] and we backed that up with another two good performances.
“The amount of fans that get in here every time we play here is a reward for them. They have supported us without doubt in their numbers but also in voice.”
Former Everton forward James McFadden, speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, emphasised the importance of Thursday’s win.
“Being out of the bottom three is massive for Everton,” he said.
“This season they have created chance after chance, not taken them and not got the points their play has deserved – and it looked like it might be that way again.
“It’s massive psychologically for them to get the win today.”
Tottenham 1-2 West Ham: Latest Spurs defeat ‘unacceptable’, says Son Heung-min
Tottenham captain Son Heung-min called Spurs’ latest defeat “unacceptable” and said his fellow players “need to take responsibility” after they dropped points from a winning position for a fifth consecutive game.
No team has dropped more points from winning positions in the Premier League this season than Tottenham, who have relinquished 16.
And Spurs’ run of five matches without a win has caused the Lilywhites to drop from first, with a five-point lead at the top of the table, to fifth.
“[Whether we] deserved better or not means nothing – we lost the game. It is unacceptable,” Son told Amazon Prime.
“As players [we] should take responsibility. Attacking players should [especially] feel responsibility because we had chances to kill the game.”
Tottenham hit the post through Giovani Lo Celso’s deflected cross in the first half, while Richarlison had a fine chance to restore the hosts’ lead in the second period but nodded a close-ranger header wide.
Ultimately, though, West Ham were clinical and Tottenham lacked a ruthless touch despite racking up 23 shots.
“If you dominate a game of football you have to turn it into something meaningful and we didn’t,” Postecoglou added on BBC Match of the Day.
“We let ourselves down when we should have won the games [we have taken the lead in] comfortably.”
Tottenham made a brilliant start to the Premier League season, winning eight of their first 10 matches.
But they last tasted victory in October and have now lost three consecutive league home fixtures for the first time since September 2008, when they were managed by Juande Ramos.
After defeats by Chelsea, Wolves, Aston Villa and West Ham – all having taken the lead – talk of a title push is turning into worries of another finish outside the top four.
“The challenges are there. It is no good feeling sorry for ourselves,” said Postecoglou. “We still have a long way to go as a team and today shows that.
“In a game of football if you don’t put those chances away teams are always going to have the opportunity to punish you. In both boxes we were nowhere near where we need to be.”
Tottenham face Newcastle in the Premier League in their next match on Sunday.
Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 West Ham United: Hammers come from behind as Spurs drop points again
West Ham United manager David Moyes called his side’s comeback at Tottenham “one of the biggest wins I’ve had in football” as they continued their fine run of form.
Cristian Romero’s early header had given Spurs a deserved opener in the 11th minute as the defender nodded in Pedro Porro’s corner with a looping effort.
But Jarrod Bowen hit back for the Hammers, latching on to a loose ball in the penalty area and firing in a 52nd-minute equaliser.
And, after a poor backpass from Spurs defender Destiny Udogie, James Ward-Prowse side-footed an effort against the post before knocking in the rebound to complete West Ham’s turnaround in the 74th minute.
“I think it is a huge win to come here and win against this side,” Moyes told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I’m pleased with how we were resilient and diligent in our work, organised, defensively structured and we were always a threat as well.”
West Ham have won five of their past six fixtures across all competitions while Tottenham suffered their fourth defeat in five and have dropped points from a winning position for a fifth consecutive game.
Bowen epitomises tireless performance
West Ham are in a purple patch, but for much of the first half against their London rivals the Hammers barely had a touch as Tottenham seemed to dictate play at will.
Ghanaian Mohammed Kudus had a strike ruled out for offside and Lucas Paqueta sent a header narrowly wide as the visitors got a foothold just before the break.
Having absorbed Spurs’ pressure West Ham were fortunate to level when Kudus’ shot deflected off both Romero and Ben Davies and into the path of Bowen who dinked the ball over onrushing Spurs goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario.
Twenty minutes later Bowen, again playing up front with regular number nine Michail Antonio recovering from a hamstring injury, forced Vicario to rush off his line to deal with Udogie’s horror backpass.
The Italian pushed the ball straight to Ward-Prowse who duly netted West Ham’s second after first striking the post.
“We were up against it tonight, we had to dig in and thankfully we just about scraped it,” Moyes added on Amazon Prime.
“[It was a] huge performance because of the quality of the opposition. We are a team who can give some of the good teams a bloody nose, we have that in us.”
West Ham were clinical when they needed to be with leading scorer Bowen epitomising his side’s tireless performance.
They have won 10 points from losing positions in the Premier League this season – only Brighton (11) and Liverpool (15) have recovered more.
And the visitors’ latest win means they remain ninth in the table and host Fulham in their next league match on Sunday.
Spurs drop points from winning positions again
Just over a month ago, Tottenham beat Crystal Palace to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with their eighth league victory in 10 matches.
Five games without a win have followed, Spurs’ longest winless run since November 2019.
Having taken an early lead, Ange Postecoglou’s side were seemingly cruising and almost had a second just before the break when Giovani Lo Celso’s dangerous cross was deflected on to the woodwork by returning West Ham captain Kurt Zouma.
And in the 70th minute, with the scores level at 1-1, substitute Richarlison should have headed Spurs back in front, but glanced a Porro cross wide from close range.
Defeat means Tottenham have lost 16 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season, more than any other side.
They stayed fifth in the table, three points off Manchester City in fourth and face seventh-placed Newcastle in their next match on Sunday.

MPs call on FA to change transgender rules to ‘protect’ women’s football
A group of 48 MPs and 27 peers have signed a letter urging the Football Association to change its rules on transgender inclusion to “protect women and girls” in football.
The letter calls on the FA to set an “unambiguous” single-sex policy.
It says the existing rules undermine fairness in the women’s game.
Several teams reportedly withdrew from games against a recreational side in Yorkshire last month after a shot by a transgender player injured an opponent.
“The FA is the most influential sporting body in the UK and it must show leadership,” the letter said.
“The FA is more than willing to issue crystal clear instructions to football clubs across the country on a whole range of different matters and yet on this issue it is turning a blind eye and is passing the buck to individual clubs and managers who must decide whether to allow registered trans players to join their teams.
“We therefore ask that, without further delay, the FA acts to protect women and girls’ football by banning all natalmales from playing in women’s teams.”
The letter was sent by Miriam Cates and co-signed by 42 Conservative MPs, two Labour MPs, two from the Democratic Unionist Party and one from the Alba Party, along with 27 members of the House of Lords.
The FA’s transgender policy states that English law does allow separate competitions to be organised for men and women. However, it states players may apply to play in a league of their “affirmed gender” – that is, the gender they identify as, rather than their birth sex – and each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis, determined by the “safety of the applicant and other players” and “fair competition”.
BBC Sport has approached the FA for comment.
In November, four teams reportedly withdrew from matches against Rossington Main Ladies, who play in the first division of the Sheffield and Hallamshire Women and Girls League – the seventh tier of women’s football in England.
That came after a shot by a transgender woman reportedly led to an opposition player suffering what the letter describes as “a broken knee, an injury that will have long term consequences for her both on and off the pitch”.
In a now-deleted post on Rossington Main Ladies’ Facebook page last month, the player said she had quit football when rival clubs refused to take part in matches against her.
“As some of you may have heard, Rossington Main Ladies FC has faced challenges from teams unwilling to play against us while I am on the field,” the player wrote.
“This unfortunate circumstance has prompted me to investigate pursuing a case of discrimination, as I believe it represents a breach of the code of conduct regarding diversity and inclusion, as well as safeguarding of adults in football established by both the Football Association and the Sheffield and Hallamshire Women and Girls League.”
The letter from MPs and peers said the incident showed current policy for transgender inclusion in football “not only undermines the principle of fairness, it also threatens the safety of women and girls”.
“All sports rely on fair competition,” the letter added. “Teams or individuals must compete as far as possible on a level playing field.
“This is why football, like the vast majority of sports, segregates players by age and sex, to eliminate unfair advantages of size and strength and of course to ensure the safety of all players.”
In a social media post last month, Rossington Main said: “As a community grassroots football club and a Football Association accredited club, it is our duty to foster an inclusive environment for all individuals and abide by the Football Associations policies and guidelines.”
The letter described the situation as “unacceptable” and criticised the FA for not implementing a ban on transgender players from women’s football.
“Unlike the Rugby Football Union or British Cycling, the Football Association has not acted to protect women and girls,” it said.
In May, British Cycling announced it would ban transgender women from the female category of its competitions. There have been similar moves in athletics, swimming, triathlon and both codes of rugby.

Everton 3-0 Newcastle United: Toffees move out of relegation zone with deserved victory thanks to late goals
Everton scored three times in the final 11 minutes of a hectic encounter to beat Newcastle and move out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.
The Toffees were sent tumbling into the bottom three by their 10-point deduction for breaking the top flight’s financial rules, but moved back into safety thanks to late goals from Dwight McNeil, Abdoulaye Doucoure and summer signing Beto.
The hosts punished a pair of mistakes from Kieran Trippier, the first coming as McNeil pounced on a poor touch, drove forward forward and thumped a deflected effort into the net, before Doucoure coolly slotted home seven minutes later.
Beto then ran clear during ten minutes of stoppage time and slid home his first league goal to make sure of the points as the home supporters wildly celebrated a deserved victory.
Before the late flurry, the Blues looked to be heading for a miserable night in front of goal having spurned a number of good chances in the opening period.
The returning Dominic Calvert-Lewin was unable to convert the best of those, controlling Jarrad Branthwaite’s flick on onto his chest and volleying over from four yards out.
Newcastle had openings in the first half too but Trippier’s free-kick and Miguel Almiron’s scuffed effort after darting through were both kept out by Jordan Pickford.
In the second half the returning Anthony Gordon, who was jeered by the home supporters throughout the game following his January transfer to Newcastle, should have silenced the Goodison crowd when he picked off James Tarkowski’s loose touch on the edge of the area but only stuck a low shot straight at Pickford.
Those three late goals mean the Toffees claw themselves out of the drop zone by leapfrogging Luton into 17th place, while Newcastle remain seventh behind Manchester United.
Everton turn the tide on home form
Everton would have moved into 10th place with this result had they not been sanctioned by the Premier League, which would have meant fans’ minds were preoccupied with dreams of European qualification rather than worries about a relegation battle.
The Toffees’ form at Goodison Park this season had been woeful before the Magpies’ arrival on Merseyside, with Sean Dyche’s men having won just one of their seven previous home games.
But they put that record right in emphatic fashion here.
Calvert-Lewin was wasteful in front of goal in the first half, seeing a header and low shot saved by Martin Dubravka before a glorious chance was smashed high into the Park End.
But the hosts kept plugging away in a stop-start contest, hitting three goals late on to secure their fourth win in their last six games.
McNeil’s thumper and Doucoure’s calm finish brought much-needed joy to the home faithful, and the atmosphere had become raucous before Beto’s composed finish added gloss to a well-earned victory.
There will be some concern for Seamus Coleman, though, as the Everton skipper hobbled off during the second half on the occasion of his first start since May.
Newcastle’s away despair continues
Newcastle came into this fixture on the back of an energetic victory over Manchester United on Saturday, but their wretched away form continued at Goodison.
Eddie Howe’s men were without 11 first-team players through injury and have now won only one away game this season, which came in the 8-0 thrashing of Sheffield United.
The Magpies could have gone ahead but James Tarkowski made a superb block to deny Bruno Guimaraes, while Alexander Isak sent a header from eight yards out wide of goal.
In the end, the visitors ran out of energy and suffered a further injury concerns when captain Jamaal Lascelles limped off, while Gordon left the stadium with chants of ‘What’s the score?’ ringing in his ears.
The result means Newcastle have already lost five times this campaign, the same number of times they tasted defeat in the entirety of 2022-23.
Their Champions League fate will be decided next Wednesday, when they need to beat AC Milan and hope PSG fail to beat Borussia Dortmund in order to progress to the knockout rounds.

Erik ten Hag: Friends tried to talk Manchester United boss out of taking ‘impossible’ job
Erik ten Hag said friends tried to talk him out of taking over as Manchester United manager because they thought he faced an “impossible job”.
The Dutchman left Ajax to take over at Old Trafford in 2022 and has been under pressure in his second season.
Ten Hag told fanzine United We Stand he was warned how tough life would be.
“Everyone was telling me ‘You can’t succeed in that job’. They said it was impossible. Me? I wanted the challenge,” the 53-year-old said.
In his first season in English football, former Bayern Munich youth boss Ten Hag ended United’s six-year wait for a trophy when they beat Newcastle in the EFL Cup final.
However, the Red Devils are way off the pace of leaders Arsenal in the Premier League table and are bottom of their Uefa Champions League group with one match left to play.
They have not seriously challenged for the Premier League or the Champions League since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
Ten Hag is the sixth man – after David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick – to try to bring success back to the club.
“I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but it was such a great club with such a great fanbase,” Ten Hag added.
“People love Man Utd, or they are against Man Utd. I like clubs like this. Ajax was like this.”
United’s 2-1 victory over Chelsea on Wednesday has provided Ten Hag with some respite from the increasing pressure he is facing.
He denied earlier this week there were rifts in his squad, although, evidently, Jadon Sancho’s continuing exile means there is at least one player with whom the Dutchman has no working relationship.
However, despite the financial impact of freezing out a player who cost United £74m when they bought him from Borussia Dortmund in 2021, Ten Hag insisted he stands by his treatment of the England international.
With an announcement about Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS Group purchasing a 25% stake in the club believed to be imminent, fresh impetus could be around the corner for the Red Devils.
But the deal is unlikely to be concluded quickly enough to have a significant impact on the club’s January transfer window spending, and Ten Hag doesn’t expect to do much business.
“I don’t think [we will spend a lot],” he said.
“As a club, you have to look for improvements, so if you can find better and it’s realistic financially and with Financial Fair Play, the club has to go with it.
“But most of the time you don’t attract the best players in the winter.”
