Pope made his full debut in the final Euro 2020 qualifier in Kosovo as Gareth Southgate's side ran out 4-0 winners.

I don't think there's too much to think about," he told the BBC.

If you think too deep into those shorts of things you get carried away with yourself I think and get caught up in something you can't affect.

Day in, day out you've just got to put your own work in and from now until March I'll be concentrating on Burnley.

That's all I've got coming up until the next international games.

Obviously I'd love to be England No.1 and to play with my name on my shirt and the No.1 underneath it, it's the stuff dreams are made of."

England boss Gareth Southgate will ring the changes for their final Euro 2020 qualifier, against Kosovo, with Pope poised to get the nod ahead of Everton's Jordan Pickford, says the Daily Mail.

Pope, 27, has one England cap as a substitute against Costa Rica in 2018. Southgate had planned to play Pope against Bulgaria last month had England defeated the Czech Republic three days prior to book qualification for next summer's tournament.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to play in attack with Jadon Sancho likely to start on the bench.

Raheem Sterling will return and Harry Kane is expected to lead the line again after being substituted early in the second half against Montenegro.

Back in the side having impressed off the bench in the defeat at Sheffield United, he will be keen to prove his manager's talk of international honours is not that outlandish.

"It's nice to hear. I think he has a lot of faith in all the players," Taylor told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

It's good to hear that kind of thing from your manager, it shows he has a lot of belief in you as a player.

"I dream about it and as long as you're playing in the top league I suppose you've always got a chance. It's a dream.

"I want to get back in the team here first and play well every week, contribute to the team and start picking up points.

"It's the best league in the world with top, top players in every position so we'll see, but it's hard."

<![CDATA[​Nakhi Wells reveals Burnley frustrations]]> <p>Burnley star Nahki Wells believes that he has "unfinished business" in the Premier League.<br></p><p>The striker is spending time on loan at QPR in the Championship this season.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/nakhi-wells-reveals-burnley-frustrations-4304387?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BBurnley'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Burnley star Nahki Wells believes that he has "unfinished business" in the Premier League.

The striker is spending time on loan at QPR in the Championship this season.

He has nine goals so far this season, and is hoping that another Premier League team look at him for next term.

The 29-year-old wants to get back to the Premier League, even if it is through a permanent move to QPR, who would have to get promoted.

QPR are 10th in the Championship.

"I went into a Burnley side that was winning every week and the strikers in front of me were doing really well," he said in an interview with TalkSport.

"I felt that I was doing everything I could on the training ground but in the limited opportunities, it was very difficult to take one and I really didn't capitalise on that.

"I never really got that crack at the Premier League I thought I deserved. But the dream is not over, of course. I still feel I have the potential and the capabilities to get this club (QPR) up and still have a crack at the Premier League."

Sheffield United held Tottenham away to move up to 5th, the ever enjoyable Leicester beat Arsenal to move into 2nd spot, and the piece de resistance, Manchester City vs Liverpool, threw up a cracking match with the reds moving 8 points clear at the top of the table.

Fueled with great goals, controversy and excellent individual displays, We here at tribalfootball look at the top performers from Matchday 12 in the Tribal Football Team Of The Week.



GOALKEEPER - BEN FOSTER (Watford)

The Watford glovemen was back at it again between the sticks, providing a series of top stops taking his team along way towards a crucial 3 points at Carrow Road.

In total, Foster made 5 saves, showing superb reflexes and technique to make it in the side for back to back weeks.



CENTRE-BACK - DEJAN LOVREN (Liverpool)

With question marks again over the Croatian's defensive abilities after the impressive start of Joel Matip, many pointed to Lovren as a potential hole in Liverpool's armour for Manchester City to exploit.

However Lovren was rock solid in defence alongside Van Dijk, keeping Man City relatively impotent in front of goal despite their possession stats. Lovren in total made 5 clearances, 2 impressive blocks and won 2 aerial duels.



CENTRE-BACK - CHRIS BASHAM (Sheffield United)

In a crucial game for Sheffield United against a struggling Tottenham outfit, Chris Basham stood tall in the typically robust Blades defence.

Keeping Harry Kane to no shots on target, Basham made 6 clearances and 2 tackles in the Blades important point that sees them rise to 5th place.



CENTRE-BACK - CIARAN CLARK (Newcastle)

It's been an eventful few weeks for the Irish defender, who in the space of a couple of games has found himself out of favour to leading the club's goalscoring charts.

The defender was solid as always in the Newcastle back three and had to step up when skipper Jamaal Lascelles came off injured.

Keeping Wilson and King to zero shots on target, Clark won 4 aerial duels, made 6 clearances and was alert enough to feather a shot goalwards to put the magpies in the lead.



RIGHT-WING-BACK - DEANDRE YEDLIN (Newcastle)

The American speedster was blitzing up and down the ground in a blistering performance in Newcastle's gutsy 2-1 win at St James Park.

Yedlin with his elite speed and endurance was strong in both aspects of the game always providing support for Almiron in attack and tracking back to help out in defence.

His headline moment came in the 42nd minute when he threw himself at a Saint-Maximin cross to head the Toon back to 1-1.



LEFT-WING-BACK - CHRISTIAN PULISIC (Chelsea)

The in-form American has been propelled into a run of goals, spurred on from the confidence from his hat trick against Burnley.

In an attack stunted by a stern Crystal Palace defence, Pulisic seemed the most likely with his tricky dribbling in and around the box.

His eye for goal again was on show when he followed up with a header to seal the game, making it 5 goals in 3 games for Pulisic who has rocketed to the top of the PL form charts.



CENTRE-MIDFIELD - FABINHO (Liverpool)

In Liverpool's colossal win over title-holders Man City, the Brazilian produced a commanding performance in the heart of the Red's midfield.

Producing a typically solid performance with assets in attack and defence, Fabinho lit up the game with one of the goals of the season when he smashed the ball true from 30 yards, sending the Kop into hysteria.



LEFT-MIDFIELD - JAMES MADDISON (Leicester)

The electric midfielder continues to shine bright within this pulsating Leicester side that made their way up to 2nd position on the weekend.

Providing much of the attacking impetus on a rainy day, Maddison was key to the Leicester win, with 4 shots on goal, 3 key passes and a magnificent strike from outside the box to tie up the 3 points.



RIGHT-MIDFIELD - DWIGHT MCNEIL (Burnley)

McNeil's quality with the ball at his foot was certainly on show in Burnley's 3-0 win over West Ham.

Whipping in numerous delightful balls into the box, McNeil registered 6 dribbles, 4 key passes, was responsible for the corner that opened the scoring for Burnley, notched up 1 assist and should have had another if not for a VAR offside.



RIGHT-FORWARD - ADAMA TRAORE (Wolves)

The Wolves powerful winger was an unstoppable force at the Molineux with Aston Villa having no answers for his repeated threats.

Constantly creating chances for his side, Traore had a colossal 11 dribbles, registered an assist and nearly scored himself smashing his shot onto the crossbar.



LEFT-FORWARD - ANTHONY MARTIAL (Manchester United)

Following United's disappointing loss away at Bournemouth, the Red Devil attackers were back to their usual attacking prowess at Old Trafford, led by Anthony Martial.

The French goal sneak produced a damaging performance, with 4 key passes and 2 assists.



MANAGER OF THE WEEK - JURGEN KLOPP (Liverpool)

Despite all the various sub-plots around the league this weekend, the Premier League narrative was rightfully centered on the heavy-weight battle between the league's two big hitters, Liverpool and City.

Liverpool, with the pressure of defeat immense, pulled out a ruthless performance with a clinical edge that saw the Reds bag 3 goals with as many shots on target. Although their win may have been expected with Liverpool's home form superb, Klopp must be giving praise for producing a side that every week looks more and more like a Premier League winning side.

After beating their biggest threat for the cup, Liverpool have moved 8 points clear at the top, and even in November, it looks to be an ominous lead.



GOAL OF THE WEEK - FABINHO (Liverpool)

It was the Chelsea loanee's first appearance since a debut in Burnley's Carabao Cup exit to Sunderland at the end of August.

And the midfielder hopes it is the first step in a return back to the first-team.

"It was good to be back out there and to help the lads win," said Drinkwater.

"It was nice to play the full game and get 90 minutes of competitive action under my belt.

"I need to build on that now and keep pushing up my fitness levels and see what the next few weeks bring."

Manchester City's defensive issues mean they will lose at least a couple more games this season, and so Liverpool now holding a nine-point advantage can probably afford to lose as many as five of their final 26 Premier League matches (19%). Given their extraordinary consistency over the last 50 league games, it will take a serious collapse for Liverpool to lose it now.

Pep Guardiola takes the blame for a surprising flat 4-4-2 formation at Anfield that did nothing to stop Jurgen Klopp's full-backs from dominating the match - leaving Man City all the way down in fourth as we enter the international break. Leicester City's easy 2-0 win against Arsenal and Chelsea's victory over Crystal Palace has seen them to second and third in the table as an eight-point gap opens up between the top four and rest.

Here are three tactical talking points from the weekend action:



1) Man City's 4-4-2 affords Liverpool's full-backs too much space

There were several crucial problems with Guardiola's chosen system at Anfield on Sunday. His flat 4-4-2 didn't offer much protection to either Kyle Walker of Angelino, allowing the hosts' full-backs to dominate via long diagonals into the channels leading directly to all three goals. Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva aren't good enough defensively to track back in time and provide cover, especially not when Liverpool were so direct in getting the ball out wide.

This problem was exacerbated by Kevin de Bruyne's surprise selection alongside Sergio Aguero, because the Belgian was consequently absent in the transitions, preventing Man City from counter-attacking successfully. What's more, the visitors needed a third body in central midfield in order to cover the width properly, whereas with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane occupying City's too-narrow full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson were free to dominate.

Guardiola should have picked a 3-5-2 formation that would have allowed wing-backs to push up and close down the Liverpool full-backs, following a template that Sheff Utd and Man Utd created recently. This formation would also have given City greater numbers in central midfield while allowing Guardiola to use De Bruyne and Aguero together up front.




2) Chelsea's 4-2-3-1 is a tactical throwback to Lampard's heyday

The best way to define Chelsea is by comparing them with the tactical strategies prominent about a decade ago, before Guardiola and Klopp had changed the landscape and when the Premier League was a simpler place. At the peak of Frank Lampard's powers, the dominant system was a 4-2-3-1 with inverted wingers linking up with a number ten.

This is how Willian and Christian Pulisic create overloads centrally with Mason Mount. The three players all drop into similar spaces between the opposition lines of defence and midfield, collecting the ball and running straight at the heart of the opposition. It is rather simplistic, but highly effective against mid-ranking clubs who are too frightened of Chelsea's risk-taking attacks to expose them on the counter-attack.

Jordan Ayew was completely isolated on Saturday as Crystal Palace dropped deeper and deeper before caving under the pressure. In time, teams will work out how to stop Lampard's side from dominating central attacking midfield, but until then Chelsea are uniquely entertaining.




3) Emery's unusual system does nothing to stop Leicester from dominating

Unai Emery used strange tactics even by his standards. A 5-2-3 formation at Leicester had Mesut Ozil as a false nine and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette as ineffective wingers, leaving just a two-man midfield to contend with the Leicester runners. Unsurprisingly, with the visitors sitting very deep, Arsenal were overrun in virtually every area of the pitch.

Aubameyang and Lacazette neither pressed nor cut off passing lanes, making them rather pointless and meaning the hosts easily got their midfielders and full-backs on the ball. Ozil similarly provided little defensive support, and so when Brendan Rodgers' side narrowed the pitch (Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell cut inside) they simply overwhelmed Arsenal.

Youri Tielemans and James Maddison eased onto the ball, surging into space with quick one-twos, and although Arsenal's bizarre tactical setup did make them threatening on the counter this match was only ever going to end one way. Leicester's second typified the game; Tielemans tore through an under-stocked centre as Arsenal, in an unfamiliar shape and refusing to close down, simply folded.




Best of the week Hughes & Capoue add control to Watford's 5-3-2

Quique Sanchez Flores has persisted with a 5-3-2 formation throughout his second tenure as Watford manager despite some disappointing results, and that persistence finally paid off at Carrow Road on Friday evening when the Hornets recorded their first win. It does appear as though consistency has led to greater organisation, although Watford were also clearly helped by the return to form of Will Hughes and by Etienne Capoue's recovery from injury.

Hughes linked with Gerard Deulofeu particularly well, creating more chances (three) than any other player on the pitch. Capoue was joint top of the charts for tackles (four) and interceptions (three) alongside Hughes; together these two picked Norwich's pockets, energising Watford at just the right moment. Norwich were again far too porous at the back.




Worst of the Week West Ham & Southampton look aimless in defeats

November is normally a time of managerial casualties in the Premier League as the international break gives boards the opportunity to assess the first third of the campaign and make some tough decisions. Manuel Pellegrini and Ralph Hasenhuttl could both be out of a job following the directionless performances of West Ham and Southampton.

That Saints only mustered four shots at home to Everton speaks volumes; their 3-4-3 is far too defensive, with Nathan Redmond asked to do too much on his own. West Ham, who haven't won in seven and have a tough set of fixtures coming up, look just as stale. Pellegrini always uses the same 4-1-4-1, and the system has frankly lost its spark.

After replacing the Erik Pieters at half-time with the Clarets 3-0 down at Sheffield United last weekend, he was handed a place from the start against the Hammers.

He said: Every professional wants to play but only 11 can. I got my chance to play today and hopefully I can keep my place in the team and keep getting results like that one."

On the 3-0 result, he added: It was the perfect game for us really. We were bang on it from the first whistle, scored three goals and kept a clean sheet so there's not much more you could ask for, I guess.

Obviously, we've had a few sticky results that haven't been great but hopefully after today we can put a run of results together."

The Sun says Burnley are lining up a cut-price 1million deal for Bitton.

Dyche is a keen admirer of Bitton and wants to try to sign him in January to boost his options in a number of areas.

The versatile 28-year-old, who stands at 6ft 4ins, primarily operates as a centre midfielder but can also play at centre-back.

Bitton's Celtic contract expires in the summer and no new deal has yet been put on the table by the Scottish Premiership champions.

Fredericks was speaking after their thumping defeat at Burnley.
