Spurs trust in their new aura

0shares

Jan Vertonghen has professed himself a goal-line technology convert after helping to get Tottenham's Premier League season off to the flawless start.

"The effort from the players was massive, it is not easy to provide them a good holiday and rest".

Paul Merson is tipping Newcastle United to hold Tottenham Hotspur to a goalless draw in their Premier League opener this weekend. "They started to work on Monday and tried to prepare and start to work in the same way as the previous season". Their best fell to new loan signing Salomon Rondon but his shot deflected onto the crossbar when he was played through. "I was really happy to be back with the [Tottenham] team and it's a good feeling, especially after the win".

England's skipper and Golden Boot victor at this year's World Cup was defended by Pochettino who said: " For me, he's in his best form.

"They showed their professionalism and commitment to the club".

"We know this will be disappointing for all our season tickets holders, premium members and our fans worldwide", said club chairman Daniel Levy.

"Nobody is injured. Only it is about taking the best decision", he said.

Jonjo Shelvey and Mohamed Diame were regularly outnumbered by Spurs' midfield trio of Sissoko, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen. Now he says: 'I am World Cup champion!'




"At a time when Ronaldo's gone to Italy and top stars continue to flock to the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, we shouldn't be handing our clubs at home a disadvantage".

"It's true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can't achieve that".

"We try and build the team and create our own way of playing, obviously we have been doing that for five weeks, they have been doing that for three years now so obviously they have a big advantage".

However, they were more open than he would have liked against Tottenham.

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

The team from London had a large number of players at the World Cup in Russian Federation, meaning they were entitled to return back to club duty later.

"He was so relaxed and calm and I said 'Come on, you need to show energy, '" Pochettino said.
