Pochettino tells Tottenham players who sought exit to refocus or be dropped

• Eriksen, Rose and Aurier among those who tried to move
• ’Tottenham have more rumours than other clubs’

Mauricio Pochettino has called upon the clutch of Tottenham players who wanted to leave over the summer to refocus or prepare to spend time on the sidelines.

Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose, Serge Aurier and Victor Wanyama were determined to force moves away and uncertainty stalked Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen who, like Eriksen, have entered the final year on their contracts.

All elections are divisive. For readers, this one was polarising | Paul Chadwick
Even allowing for the fraughtness of an election campaign, reader feedback has been especially high on emotionMostly, complaints to a readers’ editor are limited to their specific circumstances. But sometimes, stepping back, it is possible to discern themes. Scanning complaints from Guardian and Observer readers received before and immediately after the UK election, one theme seems a microcosm of the country: polarisation. One of the more snarly examples: “I feel deeply sickened at this diabolical, wicked, manipulated outcome … I’ve made it a point not to lose friends over politics in the past, even if we have passionately disagreed. That is no longer the case – if you vote Tory, it is personal. You will have voted to f..k up the lives of everyone else, and destroy our future. Do not expect things to ‘return to normal’ after this week’s vote.” All authentic elections are tough, partisan contests. Decisions are nigh, stakes are high. Division and some rancour are expected. But, even allowing for the fact that complainants to news organisations are a self-selecting sample, I detected more anger than usual. In Labour, there was intra-party exasperation, as there has been for the past several years. Continue reading...

Corbyn’s failed Brexit strategy sealed Labour’s fate | Caroline Flint
The Tories can now lay claim to be Britain’s party of the working class. Labour now either faces the hard truths or deludes itselfAfter leave-voting Labour seats turned blue – including my own – the party could put aside any postmortem and move straight into a beauty contest, as we did in 2015; or ignore it altogether, as we did in 2017. Or we could rush to pre-prepared excuses. For ardent remainers, it’s all Jeremy and the failed Corbyn project; for diehard Corbynistas, it’s Brexit, Tory lies and the nasty media. Both are in denial. In Don Valley, my constituency, on almost every other door it was either Jeremy, Brexit or both.It’s not unusual in elections to hear voter dislike of our leader, but never on this scale. Voters made quite clear – sometimes brutally – what they thought of our candidate for prime minister. Continue reading...

Kevin De Bruyne at the double as City blow Arsenal away with early salvo
To Pep Guardiola, attack has long felt like the best form of defence and, when the Manchester City manager can call on Kevin De Bruyne in form such as this, it makes perfect sense. City’s title defence has foundered on problems at the back but they did not have to worry about anything in defensive terms at the Emirates. Those concerns belonged to Freddie Ljungberg and Arsenal, during a performance of weakness, looseness and naivety. Related: Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City: Premier League – live reaction!

The Guardian view on Labour’s defeat: an existential crisis with no easy solution | Editorial
The party’s traditional coalition of voters has collapsed. A comeback is only possible if it develops a new, more subtle politics of placeAfter the Labour party’s disastrous election defeat in 1983, at the hands of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservatives, Tony Benn famously found a silver lining in the almost unbroken cloud of gloom. Writing in this newspaper, Mr Benn noted that though Labour had been routed, winning only 27.6% of the vote, millions of people had nevertheless voted for an authentically socialist manifesto. This time round, after Labour’s worst performance at a general election since 1935, there is no dodging the scale of the catastrophe. Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, rightly admitted that last Thursday’s poll was a “disaster”.This was a defeat like no other that Labour has suffered in its 119-year history. The party haemorrhaged seats in the Midlands and north, which have been the bedrocks of its traditional support. The morning after the election, Michael Gove (inaccurately) boasted that, for the first time, the Durham Miners’ Gala and the Notting Hill carnival would both take place in constituencies held by Conservatives. That was a gleeful swipe at Labour’s very sense of itself as an institution, founded in 1900, to represent the interests of the working class in the coalfields and factory towns that drove the industrial revolution.
