Pochettino focused on next Tottenham game – not Arsenal jinx

Kane is aiming to return for those games but it would appear improbable for the striker to return so rapidly.

Kane has scored 24 goals in all competitions this season and Tottenham will need him back as soon as possible. Why opponents don’t identify that more.it’s easier said than done of course because they’re so dominant and don’t allow you to get into those situations. Even Vincent Jansson was granted a runout in the dying embers of the game and the Dutch came close to adding a third as the game petered towards its close. “Shane was ready and could play”.

However, this experiment didn’t really work out and then Southampton have mostly played a conventional, if rather narrow, 4-3-3. It’s hard for strikers to fill in that role.

As demonstrated by his 11-goal haul at Sporting last season, Sanabria is a born poacher, a striker who comes alive in the penalty area and thrives on scrappy finishes and the odd tap in.

“In the second half we came back with good attitude and scored quick”.

“I watched him when he was 18 years old at Milton Keynes as a holding midfielder against Manchester United”, referring to MK Dons’ famous 4-0 win in the League Cup back in August 2014.

“He’s tough mentally, very strong”. He can score all the goals and give good assists. “Sometimes it happens that you fit quickly with a team: in a group, in a squad”.

“And they need to win this football match in order to cement top four, so if they do not win this game and Kane is also out, I do not see them winning too many other football matches in my opinion. I think the Premier League is very demanding for a striker”.

And Vertonghen would love to be able to play a couple of games from last term again.

“It’s a good game, a good challenge for us”. That was a very big one.

While Mauricio Pochettino is upset about Harry Kane’s injury, he is optimistic in his side’s ability to fill the void.

“After that, we felt the title was slipping through our fingers”. It is noticeable that the Saints have significantly improved over the last period, but we will see if it is going to be enough on Sunday afternoon.

Fri, January 20, 2017 Tottenham Hotspur are set to move into their new 61,000-seater stadium at the start of the 2018/19 season, but what will Spurs’ £750m home look like when it’s finished? “It just hit us – especially as we were two-nil up against Chelsea”.
