Fulham will visit Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday, with the Cottagers chasing a first win over Spurs since with Dimitar Berbatov and John Arne Riise during 2013. Marco Silva takes his Fulham side to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, September 3 looking for the club’s first win over Spurs in eight games across all competitions. The north London natives have had their west London rivals’ number through six of their last seven meetings.
Former Tottenham Hotspur, Bayer Leverkusen and Manchester United striker DmitarBerbatov has been surprised by the impact of the Tottenham Hotspur duo of Rodrigo Bentancur and DejanKulusevski who joined the North London club during the winter transfer window. DmitarBerbatov spoke about Kulusevski and Bentancur during the Monday Night Club on BBC earlier this week. The retired Bulgarian international pointed out that the two players were instrumental to Spurs getting a spot in the Champions League next season by finishing in fourth spot.
DmitarBerbatov has been surprised with the way the two players have adapted to Premier League football. Spurs signed Uruguayan midfielder Bentancur in a reported £16m deal, while Swedish winger Kulusevski joined on loan with the option for the club to sign him permanently. Bentancur formed a potent partnership with Danish international Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the Spurs midfield, while Kulusevski was part of a deadly front trio alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.

Dimitar Berbatov has urged Manchester United to sign Chelsea contract rebel Antonio Rudiger and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti this summer. Germany international Rudiger looks set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and United have been one of the clubs linked with a move. The Red Devils signed former Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane last summer but the team’s defence has still struggled this season, with Harry Maguire coming in for heavy criticism and Victor Lindelof also underperforming.
Rudiger, meanwhile, has been one of Chelsea’s best and most important players over the past two seasons, helping Thomas Tuchel’s side win the Champions League back in May. Berbatov says that United do need to sign a top central defender this summer and Rudiger has already proven to be such a player in the last couple of months. The former United striker says that the club have five players in that position but they still lack top quality in that department and that has to change in the summer. Continue Reading
DmitarBerbatov was proved wrong with his prediction for the Premier League clash between hosts Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at the weekend. The former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker had predicted a 2-1 win for his former team in his column for the Metro. According to DmitarBerbatov, Liverpool concede goals, while Spurs have proven to be more organised since new manager Antonio Conte took charge of the team last month.
Manchester United’ s defeat at the hands of Switzerland League side Young Boys is still ringing in the heads of a lot of people acrkss the world and with most of them being the club’s fans, it has not sat well with them and they have continued to ask questions as well. United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjaer made a shocking tactical decision during the defeat after he decoded to bring off his two best players on the might Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo to replace them with Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial in the second half. The English Premier League giants were already drawing the match 1-1 before the change but instead of making things better, things went worse instead.
Lingard would be the villain on the might after giving away the ball to a Young Boys player through a bad back pass which he converted into a goal right at the death (in the 95th minute). United didn’t have any time to try to recover from the goal as it was almost the last kick of the game before the Referee blew the final whistle. Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo, two of the players that were subbed off on the night, linked up for the opening goal in the 13th minute as Fernandes thew a beautiful pass across to his fellow countryman in the box which was finished brilliantly by the former Juventus man.

Ex-Manchester Unitedand AS Monaco striker DmitarBerbatovpredicted the Europa League final wrongly after Villarreal got the better of his former club to win a major European trophy for the first time in their history.
Ex-Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur striker DmitarBerbatov was spot on with his prediction on the outcomes of the Premier League games involving Liverpool and his former club Manchester United.
Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurstriker DimitarBerbatov has snubbed a possible return to the Premier League to feature for Watford, according to reports.
The 36-year old is already thinking of his post retirement plans as he ignored a move to Watford for Kerala Blasters.
The Premier League legend would be heading to India later in the year to join former United coach Rene Meulensteen. The seven-time Bulgarian Player of the Year award winner is set to become the third highest earning player in the history of the ISL when he resumes with Kerala.
Watford wanted him in a player-coach capacity but Berbatov ignored them, preferring a new experience in India. He would work with Meulensteen in coaching capacity, as a mentor to the Indian players and as one of the biggest players in the 2017/18 ISL.
Berbatov would link up with two former Manchester United players in Wes Brown and Paul Rachubka.
They would help the club in their title chase this term. Seven out of eight foreigners have joined but they should be enough as the two-time ISL runners-up seek to land their first title.
Berbatov is known for his exceptional ball control and goalscoring ability. He agreed to a one year deal with the Blasters but he is expected to stay longer in coaching and mentoring capacity, alongside Meulensteen. Before the Watford link, there were reports he would join Sunderland. However, the move never materialized.
DimitarBerbatov believes that Manchester United has made a great deal by signing Lukaku from Everton.
He believes that the striker has the necessary qualities to replace Wayne Rooney in the team.
However, he admitted that the departure of Rooney from Manchester United would be a big disadvantage for the team as he was a major influence in the dressing room. He said that the manager would have to find another leader to help the team.
DimitarBerbatov believes that the signing of Lukaku is a great acquisition for the team and that he is a player that will suit the playing style of Manchester United. He said that the player is a mobile one and that he will be taking part in the team play as well instead of just waiting for the ball to come to his feet in the box.
The former Manchester United striker believes that this will be an exciting season for Manchester United and he believes that the manager will still add more players to the team. He said that the Red Devils would need a big squad if they want to challenge for both the Premier League title as well as the Champions League.
He believes that Jose Mourinho already has a list of players that can help strengthen the team and that they are already working on getting some new signings.
He said that it is a bad decision from the Manchester United staff to let Ibrahimovic go. He believes that he will have been helpful in the dressing room especially now with the departure of Wayne Rooney. He said that ever since he joined the club he has been a wonderful signing for the club and he cannot understands why they allow him to leave the club at the end of his contract.
