Among many things, Rose claimed that he and his Spurs teammates were underpaid and asked his employees to sign well-known players, as opposed to "ones you had to Google".

Faced with containing one of the Premier League's lethal goalscorers, summer signing Florian Lejeune will be tasked with closing down space in the Newcastle half and clearing out unsafe opportunities.

Kyle Walker's £45m departure to Manchester City aside, Spurs have retained the same squad that finished second to Chelsea in the league last season.

Pochettino addressed the thorny issue regarding with care at his subsequent press conference, so much so that he flicked nervously between Spanish and English for the first time in months.

They received positive news on Kieran Trippier as his ankle injury isn't serious but it will be enough to keep him out of the trip to the north east this weekend so Pochettino has a decision to make. "If you remember five years ago, people said, 'Who is Pochettino?' I'm sure they used Chrome or Google or Yahoo to find out".

"I think Barkley would be the ideal player to do something different and I wouldn't even be surprised if they put in a late bid for Wilfried Zaha".

Although leaving your business late is always risky, it's still possible to pull off some shock deals as clubs may be looking to offload their out-of-contract players for any possible price.

Under the Argentinian manager, we have seen the rise of the two-time Golden Boot victor Harry Kane to an England and Premier League goal machine.

"It is true it is hard to improve but we need to bring in players who can challenge our starting eleven and players that have more opportunity to play.it is a hard job but in the end we will find the right profile of player to challenge us".

The Argentine said "of course" Rose has a future at Tottenham and "of course" he does not want to see his left back sold. "The moment he apologised we moved on and it was the past".

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has faced scrutiny for his limited squad choices after the manager failed to sign any new players during the summer transfer window. The team is ready to compete. "It's a good opportunity and big motivator for us, a chance to go there and win".
