Here is the latest on the 'mutiny' at Tottenham, as decreed by The Sun. Spurs in turmoil? Don't think so. Their weekend win was the perfect tonic to silence the critics and show they were on the right track.
Even Tottenham's club website is reveling in the win, displaying a photo of Dempsey and Villas-Boas celebrating the momentous win at Old Trafford, displaying the bond between players and manager is strong, whatever any miscreants may want to insinuate. The club are toasting their win by offering fans 15 per cent off all merchandise until tomorrow morning at 10am.
Dempsey has spoken of his first goal for Tottenham, the first he had ever scored at Old Trafford: "It was a great time to open my account and the importance of the game made it even more special. I thought we played some great football in the first half, created some good chances and got a result by scoring two goals.
“At the end, I was back on the bench and I was just praying, hoping we could see it out. The boys worked hard, blocked shots and showed great character. I think we deserved the win."
Defender Steven Caulker has also moved to quell suggestions of dressing room unrest, describing reports as 'nonsense.' He said: "There is a great team bonding there. Everyone is coming together. You could see from the celebrations at the end of the game, there is a positive atmosphere in the group. We are all very much behind the manager."
Meanwhile Harry Redknapp has revealed he attempted to sign Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla while he was manager of Tottenham. He said he looked at signing him from Villareal a couple of years ago, but 'we never managed it.'
Tottenham's under-21s have played out a 3-3 draw this evening with their Aston Villa counterparts at White Hart Lane. Jonathan Obika scored two goals, with Kevin Stewart scoring in between. New Villa signing Jordan Bowery netted for the away side.
And finally, Tim Sherwood looks likely to stay at White Hart Lane, with the Evening Standard earlier confirming Daniel Levy had refused permission for Blackburn Rovers to speak to the club's technical co-ordinator about the vacant managerial role at Ewood Park.
