Mauricio Pochettino: No chances are being taken over Harry Kane's fitness

Tottenham Hotspur fans celebrate a victory after the International Champions Cup 2018 match at U.S. Bank Stadium

"Maybe we need to adapt".

If Fulham are to clinch their first win of the season they will have to overcome a Tottenham side that have won eight of the last nine meetings between the two sides. If we are conscious that we would be taking a risk, be sure he is not going to play.

"I want to say thank you and apologise".

However Alderweireld, who was hotly linked with Man Utd, appears to have expressed his desire to stay via good old Instagram, with the Belgian defender posting a picture of himself at training with the message: "London Derby ahead" along with a muscle emoji - he is of course referring to Tottenham's upcoming clash against fellow capital club Fulham, which takes place at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

"I think Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are different, but Tottenham, City, and Manchester United, the teams that had more players involved in the semi-finals of the World Cup, it's a massive challenge for us, trying to care, to look after them". But the new stadium may not be completed by then and an National Football League game is being played at Wembley on that date. "In certain situations maybe we have to react a little bit better but we need to accept I have started with a completely new defence, a new goalkeeper and many new players".

'But we, as 25-30 people who are coaches, sport scientists, physios, talk a lot about fitness, health and everything.

Meanwhile, with the Premier League transfer window closed, Spurs can no longer add to their squad - but their players can still move overseas, and Pochettino said there could be departures.

Mauricio Pochettino believes winning is the only way to keep Spurs fans happy while waiting to move into the club's new stadium. It is so clear my message. "All people here need to feel they can be part of the team, and help the team any time the manager commands".

"Be sure that I am not going to take a risk".

Left-back Danny Rose has been linked to a move overseas, and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and academy graduate Josh Onomah could also be loaned out.

Pochettino now has 27 first-team players at his disposal, not including Vincent Janssen whose number-nine short has been made vacant. We are talking about quality players but they haven't worked at the moment with the rest of their new teammates.
