Jan Vertonghen: Tottenham won’t be looking for excuses against Chelsea

first_img Press Association Spurs face the Barclays Premier League champions in the lunchtime kick-off at White Hart Lane, just over 48 hours after returning from a gruelling 5,000-mile round trip to Azerbaijan. But defender Vertonghen, who played 90 minutes against West Ham last Sunday and in their Europa League win over Qarabag on Thursday night, insists there will be no excuses. “It seems very tough but when you go on the pitch on Sunday at 12pm you have to do it,” he said. “It’s a good game for us to be motivated. We will be on top again like we always are and everyone will be fit again. “If you see a team in a run of good form like us, you can keep going until the last minute. Last season we scored a lot of goals in the last minute so that shows just how fit we are. We have a big squad and everyone is ready to go again and again. “We don’t have to look for excuses. We’ll be ready for Chelsea.” Victory would leave Spurs 13 points ahead of the stuttering Blues and reinforce the growing belief that the north London side, unbeaten since the opening day of the campaign, could be genuine title contenders themselves. “They are a good team, but we have shown great form this season, especially at home,” Vertonghen added. “It will be another big game, but it’s like that every week in the Premier League. We will have to be on top of Chelsea to beat them. “Thirteen points ahead would be a lot, but they have one of the best squads in the Premier League – maybe even the best squad – so they can turn things around and we expect a very good Chelsea side on Sunday. “We set our goal as fourth place, so just because we have won a couple of games in the last week we can’t say we have to go for the title. We will just try to finish as high as possible and anything extra will be a great achievement. “We have some very young players who are very ambitious. For them it’s important to achieve something – last year we made the final of the League Cup which was a good thing but this group wants more and this year I think we are ready to do it.” center_img Jan Vertonghen believes Tottenham’s motivation to beat Chelsea on Sunday will ensure they shrug off any fatigue.last_img read more

Mason City Community School District to start school year with hybrid of in-person, online learning

first_imgMASON CITY — The Mason City School Board Monday night approved a “Return to Learn” plan that includes a hybrid of in-person and online learning to start the school year.Superintendent Dave Versteeg says with the high numbers of COVID-19 cases in the county recently, the school year will start with a four-day week with smaller groups of students. “This is still how many days out from school, we feel like hybrid is the right direction to go to get everybody back safely and manage that, and then grow it from there. Our goal is to have 100% of the kids at school 100% of the time as fast as possible. We think starting smaller groups and managing that will get us to that point faster, than in our situation, again our situation is different than other schools, bringing everybody back all at once.”Versteeg says if things go well in the first couple of weeks with no COVID issues, the district can start moving toward possibly moving to more in-person time for students.  “If we can have a couple of really good weeks where nobody sick, we don’t have any outbreaks in school, then I think we could think about what the next step might be.”Versteeg says plans for in-person or on-line classes can vary from day to day, just like when decisions have to be made currently with snow days.  “Really we monitor this on a daily basis. We’ve got other considerations for absenteeism among students or staff that may work just like a winter snowstorm that we may have to make a change in the particular building just in case based on the availability of staff on a particular day.”Versteeg says face coverings will be required for students and staff.   “We’re asking people to bring their own that they are most comfortable with, but we will provide face coverings and/or face shields and whatever other appropriate PPE would be necessary for a particular staff assignment. But at a minimum, face coverings and face shields will be provided and we will do face coverings for students if they cannot provide their own.”The first day of school is scheduled for August 24th.Review the “Return to Learn” plan by clicking here MCCSD – Board of Education Meeting from Mason City Community Schools on Vimeo.last_img read more
