Spurs cannot compete with rivals in transfer window - Pochettino

'I will stay here, don't worry.

"I did not listen to him, but I think he is committed to the club - I did not hear his interview properly".

That's ten more than they achieved last season and just 1 short of the total Leicester needed to win the title previous year so it would still be a huge sign of improvement if Spurs could hit the 86 point mark. "I will be here for pre-season".

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has suggested that his side have been unlucky with injuries towards the conclusion of the 2016/17 Premier League season. They've finished second in the league and they've ran Chelsea full tilt for title.

Spurs have problems at right-back as Kyle Walker has been ruled out with an ankle injury while Kieran Trippier has concussion following a clash of heads against United last weekend. "Maybe one percent or one player is not happy, but the rest of the group is so, so, so happy to help the club".

Pochettino believes Chelsea's lack of European football was a crucial factor in their success.

When asked whether the disparity in budgets and spending power has resulted in a more varied list of targets for Spurs compared to their high spending counterparts, the Argentine replied: "Yes, of course".

Pochettino has been linked with jobs away from Spurs, in particular that of FC Barcelona, which is set to be vacated when Luis Enrique departs at the end of the season. "In October and November we dropped a lot of points and it was hard to catch Chelsea", the Argentinean added. Tottenham will spend 2017/18 at Wembley and have a poor record at the national stadium, compounded this season by a shocking European campaign - their first in the Champions League for five years. "That is why they won in the end". Maybe there's some insane offer and it is so hard to stop some player [from leaving]. "To finish second was a good thing for us, but now we need to finish in the last two games with a good feeling".
