When Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris confronted Son Heung-min on the field at half-time, Jose Mourinho was far from annoyed. The manager renowned for his own flashpoints and volatility was delighted to see tensions between teammates erupting in public view. "It was beautiful," he said. "Probably it's a consequence of our meetings." Angered by the timidity of a 3-1 loss at Sheffield United in the previous English Premier League round, Mourinho saw the passion he wanted as Tottenham this time secured a 1-0 victory over Everton on Monday. Reason for the fight Just before the break, with Tottenham leading, Son lost the ball which led to Richarlison having a chance to equalise but striking wide of Lloris's post. "I think to concede a chance a few seconds before half-time because we don't make the pressing properly, that annoys me but it's part of football. Move on," Lloris said. Only, Lloris didn't when the whistle blew for half-time, shouting as he raced over to Son. Giovani Lo Celso and Har..

Antoine Griezmann answered his critics in style on Sunday by scoring with a sensational chip as Barcelona thrashed Villarreal 4-1 to keep their faint La Liga title hopes alive. After the humiliation of being brought on in the 90th minute against his former club Atletico Madrid, Griezmann was back in the starting line-up at La Ceramica and repaid the faith with a stunning goal, teed up by Lionel Messi. "It was the kind of goal only great players can score," said Barcelona coach Quique Setien. "He played a spectacular match." Messi also laid on a curling Luis Suarez shot into the top corner after Gerard Moreno cancelled out a Pau Torres own-goal that had put Barca in front. Ansu Fati then added a fourth late on. Quique Setien An impressive victory for Setien's side reduces the gap back to four points behind Real Madrid, who earlier ground out another 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao at San Mames, with a Sergio Ramos penalty proving the difference.

Raheem Sterling said Manchester City proved a point in a 4-0 thrashing of newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool on Thursday as they look to take the title back next season.
