Premier League Weekly | Latest News & Stories – Feb. 14, 2022
Hello, Premier League fans! Today we will review some exciting news in the past seven days in English Premier League. So sit tight and enjoy the show!
This summer will be a key for Tottenham Hotspur’s future!
You can’t buy a winning mentality! That was a quote from Antonio Conte after his side suffered another defeat in the Premier League, the third in a row. Sometimes it looks like Tottenham improved much under the Italian manager, and they are the major favorite for the place in the top 4, but actually, that isn’t true just yet.
This Spurs side has too many problems and too many weak positions. One of the most problematic is center-back. It sounds incredible that Spurs have bought only two center-backs in the last four years: Joe Rodon and Christian Romero. This position is one of the club’s biggest problems in recent years, and the club didn’t know how to solve it. Because of the individual mistakes made by Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez, Tottenham conceded 4 of 5 goals in the last two games against Southampton and the Wolves.
The transfer policy in Tottenham is one of the worst in the Premier League in recent years. Tottenham bought 19 players from summer 2019, and 8 out of 19 players have already left the club, with four on the exit door for the summer transfer window.
Antonio Conte and sporting director Fabio Paratici have started to rebuild this Spurs squad in January, but this summer will be key for the future of the club. Conte needs winners and experienced players. Spurs need about 5 or 6 new players in the summer. We all know Antonio Conte well – he will leave the club if Daniel Levy doesn’t buy him what he wants.

Will Brendan Rodgers lose one of the most important players in the squad this summer?
This season is horrible for Foxes. They are out of League Cup, FA Cup, and Europe League, and currently, they are in 11th place in the Premier League. Brendan Rodgers is one of the favorites to be the next manager in the Premier League who will be sacked, and Leicester fans heard another bad news during the week.
As per English media, one of the essential players in the squad Youri Tielemans doesn’t want to sign a new contract with the club, and he will leave Leicester in the summer. The 24-year-old midfielder has a contract with Leicester until 2023, so the club will sell him in the summer rather than lose him for nothing next year.
The Belgium international signed for Leicester in January 2019 on loan from Monaco, but in summer 2019, that loan became a permanent transfer for 40 million pounds. That was a very good business because Tielemans scored 18 goals and has assisted 16 of them since joining the club.

Is Arsenal now in the best position to finish in 4th place?
What a week for Arsenal supporters? They beat Wolverhampton at Molineux Stadium, and their rivals for the place in the top 4 dropped points.
West Ham won against Watford last Tuesday, but only got the point against Leicester on Sunday. Arsenal’s fiercest rival Tottenham lost both games against Southampton and Wolves in the space of 4 days, and Manchester United only picked up two points in a couple of days against Burnley and Southampton.
Arsenal is right now in 6th place with one point below Man Utd and two points below West Ham, but the Gunners have two games more than Man Utd and three more than West Ham.
