Mauricio Pochettino hopes his players don’t go on worldwide duty

Tottenham's Harry Kane would be revered if he was Italian - Mauricio Pochettino

Roy Hodgson's side were beaten by Chelsea last weekend, however, they will look to take confidence from their draw against Arsenal two weeks ago in their last home game.

The omens were not good for Palace before kickoff when Wilfried Zaha, without whom they seldom win, was ruled out with a hamstring injury. I think he's now starting to be really mature, because he's still young. That is why we were talking before about Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen and worldwide duty. If you see our schedule for the next few months it will be so tough.

"I understand we need to sacrifice some games for some players so they can cope with the demand in the future".

Trippier was one of five Tottenham players named in Gareth Southgate's squad for the upcoming friendly against the US and UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia.


With Mousa Dembele out for the rest of 2018 it seems likely that Dier will come straight back into the side at Selhurst Park.

While Lloris had threatened another in a series of errors earlier in the game, the Spurs captain stepped up in the final 10 minutes to make a trio of saves, firstly pushing away a powerful swinger from Jeffrey Schlupp's right foot.

Mauricio Pochettino has stressed once again that he totally focused on the job in hand at Tottenham - denying speculation that he could become the new Real Madrid manager. And yet, nearly under the radar, he took his tally to 10 from 15 matches in all competitions on Tuesday with the late goals that secured the 2-1 Champions League win over PSV Eindhoven. But in a press conference this week, Pochettino reiterated his commitment to Spurs, while acknowledging that rumours are part and parcel of football. It's not only the pressure from the coaching staff, fans and club. That rumour you tell me and the opposite appeared [in the media] the other day.
