Two midfield all-rounders could decide Tottenhams game against Manchester United at White Hart Lane this Sunday, live on Sky Sports. Authentic Juwan Howard Jersey . Tottenham host Manchester United with both sides keen to keep pressure on the sides above them. Mousa Dembele and Morgan Schneiderlin are two players enjoying strong seasons in midfield and both will play crucial roles in this match.The presence of several key English players often generates attention at Spurs, but Dembeles return to form and full fitness has arguably been as integral to their fine season as anything else. The Belgium international has generally partnered Eric Dier in midfield, augmenting much of what Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb produced last year. Spurs midfield comparison Stats per 90 mins Dembele - PL 2015/16 Mason - PL 2014/15 Bentaleb - 2014/15 Tackles 4.5 3.3 2.4 Interceptions 2.3 2.0 2.4 Successful dribbles 3.4 0.7 1.1 Chances created (open play) 1.0 1.0 0.7 Successful passes 51.2 52.1 56.4 Passing accuracy 90% 84% 87% Sprints 49.4 44.9 47.2 Distance covered 10.8km 11.6km 11.2km Dembeles major strength is his tackling; only three players have recorded more tackles in the Premier League this season and only four average more than the Belgians 4.5 per 90 minutes. Most tackles PL 2015/16 Tackles Tackles per 90 mins NGolo Kante (Leicester) 139 5.0 Idrissa Gueye (Aston Villa) 123 4.4 Erik Pieters (Stoke) 108 3.5 Mousa Dembele (Tottenham) 96 4.5 Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea) 94 3.3 While this is impressive enough, and a platform from which Tottenham have sprung many attacks this season, its the midfielders actual proficiency in this department that stands out further.Tackles won and lost are easily accessible stats, but they dont reveal a players actual tackling ability. Lost tackles are still successful actions, just ones where the opposing team maintains possession. Therefore, Optas dribbled past category, a stat highlighting when a player is beaten, can be used to explore this better. Challenge success PL 2015/16 Tackles Dribbled past Challenge success Mousa Dembele (Tottenham) 96 8 92.3 Gabriel Paulista (Arsenal) 32 3 91.4% Virgil van Dijk (Southampton) 55 6 90.2% Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham) 37 5 88.1% Wes Morgan (Leicester) 39 6 86.7% Dembele has only been dribbled past eight times while making 96 tackles this season, giving him a 92 per cent success rate which officially classes him as the Premier Leagues hardest man to beat.Furthermore, those near Dembeles ratio havent made anywhere near as many tackles. No player with more than 55 tackles maintains a ratio higher than 85 per cent and the vast majority have been dribbled past at least twice as many times.For example, NGolo Kante leads the way with 139 tackles, but hes been dribbled past on 45 occasions, the tenth most in the division. Similarly, Idrissa Gueye (26 times), Erik Pieters (35) and Cesar Azpilicueta (24) have all been beaten on at least three times as many occasions as Dembele. Jamie Carragher says Dembele should be seen as a top defensive midfielder The Spurs man is not just one of the Premier Leagues most frequent tacklers this season; more importantly, hes been the best.Schneiderlin has similar disruptive responsibilities for Manchester United. While his stats dont quite match up to Dembeles, he still offers the most to his side in this department. Man Utd tackles and interceptions PL 2015/16 Tackles per 90 Interceptions per 90 Tackles and interceptions per 90 Morgan Schneiderlin 3.1 2.9 6.0 Matteo Darmian 3.8 2.0 5.8 Marcos Rojo 2.7 2.7 5.4 Daley Blind 2.8 2.4 5.2 Chris Smalling 1.8 2.9 4.6 Uniteds inconsistencies in attack often detract from the fact they have one of the Premier Leagues best defensive records and Schneiderlin has played his part in that. With the Frenchman involved, United win 54 per cent of games, taking 1.92 points per game, compared to just 29 per cent and one point without him.While United appear more compact with Schneiderlin protecting the defence, hes yet to offer as much in the final third as he did while at Southampton. Given his sides publicised struggles to get shots on target this season, one can understand Louis van Gaals occasional urge to leave the midfielder out in favour of more attacking combinations. Schneiderlin year-on-year Premier League only Man Utd 2015/16 Southampton 2014/15 Goals 1 4 Assists 0 1 Shots 10 30 Chances created 9 20 In a similar amount of time on the pitch, Schneiderlins been directly involved in just one league goal at United, shooting and creating chances far less often than at Southampton, though he took positive steps in this direction against Everton on Sunday.Although Marcos Rashfords back-heel, Timothy Fosu-Mensahs cross and Anthony Martial scoring took the headlines in the move for the only goal of the game, it was Schneiderlins long, defence-splitting pass that prompted the move. Schneiderlin (28) produced the pass for Anthony Martial (9) to score against Everton This more rounded involvement is what Van Gaal and Manchester United fans will hope to see more of from their summer signing over the next few seasons.While Schneiderlin and Dembele wont always be head-to-head on Sunday, charged with screening their respective defences, each man will look to disrupt opposing attackers and switch defence into attack. The player who is more successful at doing that will provide his side with the better platform from which to take the points.

Andrew Cuomos stepping up the states efforts to secure the franchises long-term future in the region. A person familiar with the sale process told The Associated Press on Saturday there is an anticipation that the Bills could be sold by July, and the sale approved by NFL owners as early as the leagues meetings in October. The same person and another person also told the AP that at least one prospective ownership group has already toured potential new stadium locations in Buffalo. Both people spoke on condition of anonymity because the sale process has not been made public. The person would not identify which ownership group toured the city, what sites were viewed or who provided the tour. The Bills future in Buffalo is uncertain after team owner and founder Ralph Wilson died in March. Wilsons estate is in the process of hiring an investment banking firm that would oversee the sale of the team, which is expected to go to the highest bidder. The updated timetable has led Cuomo to speed up the states involvement in protecting its interests in preventing the Bills from relocating. The state intends to hire a consulting firm over the next week to produce a report within three months that would be issued to prospective owners. The report would identify potential stadium sites and outline public financing options that would be made available. That firm would work with sports business attorney Irwin Raij, whose contract was extended last month, to represent the state during the sale process. Authentic Ian Mahinmi Jersey. Raij specializes in stadium development projects and lease agreements. In 2012, he represented New York in negotiating the Bills 10-year lease that included a strict non-relocation clause that makes it difficult for the team to move before the 2020 season. The firm would produce its report ahead of the "New Stadium Working Group," a committee made up of public and private leaders, including Bills executives. The group has already met twice over the past month and is responsible for making recommendations whether a new stadium or renovations to the teams current home best fit the franchises needs to remain viable in Buffalo once the lease expires in 2023. The working group is expected to take six months or longer before making its recommendations, well after the team could be sold. Cuomo is intent on making sure a framework of a plan is in place much sooner, Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy told the AP during a visit through the region Friday. "The governor wants to be prepared if there are any earlier offers to buy the team," Duffy said. "Our team is looking at sites now in Erie County, Buffalo, Niagara County. Were just being prepared because we dont know who the next owner will be. Were not sure what the goals and the objectives of the next ownership team will be."
