Reporter claims Tottenham players now all call 21-year-old ‘Starboy’

Tottenham Hotspur’s first team have started calling young midfielder Pape Matar Sarr “Starboy” in training.

Journalist Alasdair Gold spoke about the Senegalese international on the Gold & Guest Podcast.

If a 21-year-old appeared at another Premier League club, it would be a huge deal.

However, the hype around the entire Spurs squad is currently so great that Pape Matar Sarr’s performances have remained somewhat under the radar.

The midfielder had only played 14 times for Tottenham before Ange Postecoglou joined the club.

Antonio Conte used him sparingly last season, despite denying him the chance to loan him out.

But Ange Postecoglou arrived determined to give every player in the team a chance to impress.

Sarr has grabbed it with both hands and has started all but one of the club’s league matches this season.

Unsurprisingly, his performances are starting to impress his Spurs teammates.
And now the Tottenham team have started calling Sarr “Starboy”.

He clearly has a great future ahead of him and appears to be the perfect partner for Yves Bissouma and James Maddison in midfield.

The Tottenham team now calls Sarr Starboy

Speaking about the 21-year-old, Gold said: “Pape Matar Sarr was great against Milan.

Antonio Conte is gone, thanks for that, he’s there, and that’s literally what he did.

“While [Ange] Postecoglou is gone, no no, this guy is just going to be a world beater.

“Like I said, at the club they call him ‘Starboy’, that’s what the players call him because they believe he will become a phenomenal young player.

“I’m very excited to see how Postecoglou progresses with this team.”

Sarr missed the ball several times against Arsenal but ultimately put in a decent performance.

He had the difficult task of guarding Martin Odegaard and Fabio Vieira in midfield, who don’t tend to stay in the same position during a match.

Given that Arsenal’s star boy Bukayo Saka had a goal and an assist, Sarr’s performance for Tottenham was impressive for entirely different reasons.

He seemed unfazed by progressing so quickly under Postecoglou, but he will know his place will soon be under threat when Rodrigo Bentancur returns from injury.

Round-up of Liverpool’s rivals: There was another interesting development at Chelsea as a manager quietly left while Paul Merson made a U-turn at Spurs.

There’s never a dull moment at Chelsea, except perhaps when Mauricio Pochettino’s team takes the field.

The Stamford Bridge team are already 11 points behind Liverpool in 14th place and have a negative goal difference.

While there were already growing questions about whether it would be wise to spend so much money again this summer and continue to make major changes, this can only be more true today.

Meanwhile, Moisés Caicedo and Roméo Lavia’s decisions to move to Chelsea rather than Liverpool don’t seem so wise so far.

The Reds, on the other hand, want to continue their start to the season, in which they have won six of seven games.

That record is set to drop from eight to seven tomorrow when Leicester City come to town for the Carabao Cup.

Liverpool will make changes ahead of this match and ahead of the weekend’s trip to Tottenham, with Chelsea and Spurs among the Premier League headliners to watch today.

Here, analyzes the other big teams from the top flight and across Europe to see what’s new from other clubs.
Chelsea are quietly losing a member of staff

Things have not been going well for Chelsea lately, despite huge spending in recent transfer windows.

Having invested over $1 billion in the market, one would expect Stamford Bridge to at least look a lot more like a European chasing team.

Now The Telegraph reports that the club have secretly parted ways with Bruno Saltor.

The former Brighton defender initially joined Chelsea as part of Graham Potter’s backroom staff before becoming first team manager under Mauricio Pochettino. 

The Liverpool home shirt for the 2023/2024 season pays homage to Bill Shankly and the legendary Reds manager’s final season at Anfield.

The Nike T-Shirt has a bright red design with a striking white contrast on the color and cuffs. says: Although Liverpool seem to be flying a little under the radar at the moment, Chelsea remain at the center of many stories.

There’s never a quiet day in the capital when it comes to the blues and today is no different.

There is also the question of how much time Pochettino will have to change the situation.

After the 1-0 home defeat against Aston Villa last weekend, Chelsea had five points from six games and there is still a lot to improve. At Chelsea you can never rule anything out completely.

Paul Merson makes a U-turn for Spurs ahead of their clash with Liverpool

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson faces a U-turn against Spurs after the north London derby ended 2-2 this weekend, with Liverpool set to face Tottenham in the Premier League.

“I am very optimistic, but I think Arsenal will win this match easily,” Merson wrote before the match, as part of his predictions on Sportskeeda.

“Tottenham have started the season well, there’s no doubt about that.

However, if they play fanatical football and want to take the game to Arsenal, the Gunners will destroy them.

“If they stay calm and try to score a goal on the counterattack, they may have a chance, but I don’t think that will happen because they haven’t played like that so far with Ange Postecoglou.”

However, in the aftermath of the match, Merson had to change his tune. In his Premier League column for Sky Sports, he wrote:

“The first 35 minutes against Arsenal I found Spurs quite disappointing.

I thought it was no different to watching Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.

While Gabriel Jesus scores first of 2-0, then it’s a completely different story. But he absolutely lacks a guardian.

“What I liked about Tottenham after that was they continued to play the way they like and I was very impressed with them.

I thought Arsenal would win easily. But for Spurs to come back from a 1-0 deficit and a 2-1 deficit, normally.”

They were laying down and getting beat. Honor where honor is due. I thought they were outstanding and now I see they are in the top four. says: Spurs have made a good start to the season, but Liverpool can really make a statement by beating them on their own turf, just like they did last year.

However, one game at a time: unlike Tottenham, Liverpool are in the Carabao Cup midweek.
