Mauricio Pochettino thinks Harry Kane’s obsession with scoring can work against him

Santiago Solari has been in charge on a caretaker basis for the last three matches, but speculation continues over who will take the job long term.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino would prefer not to send his players on worldwide duty if he had the choice.

"That's why we were talking before about Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, if they'll be involved in worldwide duty".

With Tottenham and Manchester United up next for Palace, on top of meetings with Man City and Chelsea in December, Hodgson needs his side to turn their so-called promising displays into all three points if they are to avoid dropping below the dotted line.

"Normally you see that run of fixtures and think, "Oh here we go", but we just can't wait".

The young centre-back had received criticism for a hard Premier League debut in last week's 3-2 win over Wolves, but Pochettino refused to drop Foyth and he subsequently secured the spoils for Spurs in a poor match at sodden Selhurst Park. I think it will be an wonderful place to enjoy football for our fans, and players. How do you manage that?

"We have experience in this kind of situation as we were players".

Lucien Greaves, who co-founded the Satanic Temple, tweeted to compare their statue and the one used in the television series. The temple says the statue cost about $100,000 to design and build.

It was not all good news for Tottenham, however, as England worldwide Kieran Trippier, who on Thursday was named in Gareth Southgate's squad for the friendly against the United States and the Nations League game versus Croatia, limped out of the game after only 22 minutes.

With Mousa Dembélé out for the rest of the calendar year, Pochettino has no choice but to rush Dier back into the XI for their trip to Selhurst Park.

But the signing of Lucas Moura has given Spurs' manager an extra option, while Erik Lamela - who was sidelined for 13 months between October 2016 and November 2017 due to hip injuries - has scored six goals already this season.

"Of course, now every time I decide to pick my starting XI I have a name I feel comfortable to play", he added.

"It's so important. Competition in football is always such an important thing that puts pressure on yourself". It's from your team-mate. That rumour you tell me and the opposite appeared [in the media] the other day.

"That's a very good thing that happens in the teams that need to win".
