Spain Striker: This Is Why I Snubbed Chelsea On Deadline Day


Spain Striker: This Is Why I Snubbed Chelsea On Deadline Day

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli is back from suspension and available for Saturday's game at home to Swansea.

Harry Kane hit the crossbar in the second half and Spurs could have had a penalty when Martin Olsson touched the ball with his hand, but Swansea dug in for a hard-earned point.

After powering past Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday, Spurs looked to have turned a corner at their new home.

With Spurs having picked up just 11 points from their first nine games under the former Southampton boss in 2014, Kane - playing second fiddle to Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor at the time, struck a deflected free-kick victor in the 90th minute of a 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa. We did not get the one penalty we deserved.

Winks, 21, had begun making major inroads to the first-team last season before his campaign was brought to a premature end when he was stretchered off during a 2-0 win over Burnley, with it later emerging he had suffered ankle ligament damage. The draw means Spurs, who have now dropped seven points at home this season, remain in fifth place, five points behind leaders Manchester City.

'It's not my business, ' said Pochettino.

"You have to make sure you're trying to control him (Kane) because he has a lot of different qualities", Swansea head coach Paul Clement explained. It is expected that they had Georges-Kevin NKoudou again to the game.

Do you think Llorente made the right decision?

Spurs had over 70 per cent of the possession and the majority of the chances at Wembley, but could not break down a stubborn Swansea side.

Tottenham have gone three Premier League home games in a row without a win for the first time since a run of four in December 2013.

Tottenham's next league game at Wembley is three weeks away, with Bournemouth the visitors on October 10. Renato Sanches was chased by multiple big clubs before signing with Bayern Munich after he won Young Player of the Tournament at Euro 2016. Davinson Sanchez, Tottenham's deepest centre-back, was outdone by the striker on more than one occasion; had Swansea succeeded in getting bodies in support of the 19-year-old more often, they may have been able to steal a memorable Wembley victory.
