Tottenham can win big matches without star players - Pochettino

Tottenham can win big matches without star players - Pochettino”

Lamela has endured a nightmare year due to a problem with his hips, but Pochettino said the winger could be among the substitutes for next week's Carabao Cup tie against West Ham.

"The most important thing is that we have a plan".

"Ten minutes after the end of the game, they said 'you are a genius!'". We must wait for when he sees the specialist next week and then we'll see what happens. "I know people will look at it and say, "it was only Maribor", but we have seen in the other two games they have played in the Champions League that they are a good team". Then, just when he seemed set to return against Real Madrid on Tuesday, he suffered a hip injury.

"This is what I said to them, to my team-mates: 'Don't forget that three years ago we were still in the Europa League, '" said France captain Lloris, who shone in the draw at the Bernabeu. It was just my feeling when I met him.

The Spurs chief said: "His mind is clear that what happened is in the past and we need to move on". For me now [it's about] looking forward to trying to provide the team with the best quality to try to win, and he's part of my plans.

"We are a flexible team, able to play in different structures but always keeping the characteristics of what we want", the Spurs manager said.

The squad have got to the point where they understand the manager's ideas so well, and he is thereby so comfortable in control of the team, that he can much more easily change it up and do something very different.

"It's too hard to explain what we want in every single game to try to find".

"I don't think about the difference between us and City at this moment".

Pochettino is so relaxed, in fact, that he has had no problem collaborating on a new book - entitled "Brave New World" - that tells the story of a Tottenham season and involves the Argentine himself telling exactly why he came up with certain decisions that couldn't be explained at the time.

For a manager facing what might well be the toughest week of his club's season, you wouldn't imagine it from Mauricio Pochettino's demeanour. If they can't accept that you are dead. We're more mature as a team and I'm happy about that. "And you need a strong defence too, and that was the case too". "I am so proud because our players accept that".
