Pochettino promises end-of-the-window transfers at Spurs

"If you remember five years ago, people said, 'Who is Pochettino?' I'm sure they used Chrome or Google or Yahoo to find out". While the likes of Manchester City, United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all splashed the cash this summer the Lilywhites are the only Premier League team to yet sign a single player this transfer window.

"I acknowledge that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged", said Rose, who is recovering from knee surgery.

Tottenham fans are understandably concerned over the club's lack of activity in the summer transfer window.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday (11 August 2017) the 33-year-old motor-mouth entered the Danny Rose debate. When you sign players like Eric Dier, who are internationals today, nobody knew him.

However, Benitez is not convinced Mauricio Pochettino's team will be distracted.

Davies added: "Hopefully (I can make the left-back spot my own)".

"I think taking away White Hart Lane and the atmosphere is just such a disadvantage to them". Tottenham are certainly one of them.

Harry Kane again recorded phenomenal goal-scoring stats last season, hitting 29 in 30 league appearances, providing seven assists to boot.

After two top-three finishes, and especially after finishing second last season, you'd forgive many fans for expecting Spurs to push for their first league title since 1961. However, with the player appearing not to be 100% fit it may be best for him to have another week's rest, rather than run the risk of any further damage. He was injured at the start of the season and Tottenham made a slow start.

Instead they chose to only display the three goals they scored against Swansea last season. It was clearly never meant to be the way forward for Spurs given Pochettino's remarks, with Rose now hinting that the squad also expected a lot more to happen.

The South Korean star played a pivotal role in Tottenham's title challenge last season, and despite injury picked up on global duty last month, the 25-year-old is in contention to be fit to start on Sunday. They've kept the nucleus of the side together but the worry will be whether teams around them will put distance between them if they stand still for too long as they finance their new stadium. Levy has even criticised the huge transfer sums paid by Tottenham's direct rivals on new players.

"The type of player we want to add is very specific and it has been hard to make it happen early on in the transfer window, but we are so calm".

"When you have young players with a good understanding and another year of experience, they have to be better, so I don't think it will be a problem for them because they have the same manager, the same staff, the same players and more experience in the Premier League, so they will be even more unsafe".
