"Solid": Pochettino satisfied as Spurs grind out three points

"Solid": Pochettino satisfied as Spurs grind out three points

Pochettino will hope the joke's not on him. "We have 11 players to replace Harry when he's not here, but the players are good enough to substitute [in for Kane]".

The up and coming global break will help Kane recover with Spurs set to take on Burnley on April 1, a tough fixture because Sean Dyche's team are yet to be beaten at home this term.

"We need to assess him day-by-day".

"I think I've definitely calmed down a bit but it's important, I'm never going to take that [competitiveness] out of my game".

"We trust completely in our doctor and physios and department that looks after them in the best way".

Arsenal now trail Spurs by nine points so barring a dramatic reversal in fortunes in the final few weeks of the season Tottenham will finish above the Gunners in the Premier League for the first time since 1994-95.

"Many players struggle to handle that role".

- Tottenham's 10-game winning streak at White Hart Lane is their longest run since October 1987 (14 in a row). The immediate success of Alderweireld and Wanyama, plus the ease with which Pochettino and his staff settled at Spurs, suggest conditions at Southampton are similar to Spurs although Pochettino has rejected the suggestion that the clubs share a similar philosophy, describing them as "completely different".

"They deserve it and we wish them well".

"We played very well in the first half, but then in the second we conceded a goal through a mistake".

Southampton chiefly have in-form striker Manolo Gabbiadini to thank for that with the Italian scoring six goals in his four appearances since joining from Napoli in January.

Alli was sent off for a unsafe lunge on Gent's Brecht Dejaegere in the first knockout stage of the Europa League in February and has faced calls to tame his character and tread the line more carefully.

Southampton are a odd team and very hard to predict, but I am going to go for a scruffy Spurs win - even without Kane, they still should have enough.

"It will be interesting to see our progress".

Southgate is very aware that the Tottenham hitman is about far more than simply goals: "Harry has definite leadership qualities", said Southgate to the media.
