Bundesliga side Hoffenheim have appointed 28-year-old Julian Nagelsmann as their new head coach.

Nagelsman was set to take over in the summer but that has been brought forward due to the club's struggles in the league, as they currently sit 17th in the table.

The university graduate becomes the youngest coach in Bundesliga history, signing a three-and-a-half year deal at Hoffenheim.

Watford boss wants fans to watch football for free

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores does not understand why English football is so expensive and and wants fans to be able to watch the game for free.

The cost of a Premier League ticket has come under scrutiny this week after Liverpool supporters staged a protest during their game against Sunderland.

While Watford are yet to reveal their pricing structure beyond this term - their most expensive ticket for their next league match against Bournemouth is £42 - Flores wishes supporters across the land did not have to pay a single penny.

I want to say that I would like the fans to pay as little as possible.

It is an amazing love that the fans feel for their team but unfortunately football is not cheap, it is expensive.

Sometimes the situation of the families is not so good, so if you are talking with me about what I think, I would like them to go for free, and if not free, cheap.

I don't understand why football is expensive for the people because the football is great for the fans. But football is more and more of a business and it is difficult to think that it will ever be free.

– Quique Flores

On Sunday, the top four play each other at the same time for only the sixth time in Premier League history, with Spurs visiting Man City and Arsenal hosting Leicester.

It promises to be an exciting and potentially telling Sunday for the title race, with Man City and Spurs looking to their leading strikers for inspiration.

The stats show that Aguero has enjoyed a better minutes-per-goal ratio than Kane, scoring one more goal despite featuring in seven fewer matches because of injury. On the other hand, Kane boasts more key passes per match, together with a slightly more favourable take-on rate and shot accuracy.

Among the other notable stats, ten of Aguero's 14 goals have come at the Etihad, while eight of Kane's 15 have been scored away from White Hart Lane.
