No new deal for Alli, says Pochettino

He is already serving a three-match suspension in the Champions League, therefore missing Tottenham's win over Borussia Dortmund last week, while off the pitch the youngster is reportedly negotiating a change of agent.

It seems very likely that Kyle Walker-Peters will get a match under his belt at right back against Barnsley, and Poch hinted at roles for Fernando Llorente and Tashan Oakley-Boothe.

"He needs the freedom to be natural and to express himself". We're so happy because he played very well against Manchester United and then in the Youth Cup he was very good. It's only about time - time for him to find his balance because he is still 21. There are a lot of things that affect them, that are around them and when you are young.

The England global has risen to prominence in the two seasons since his switch from MK Dons in 2015, winning back-to-back PFA Young Player of the Year awards. He is not just furniture.

"It is about maturity and finding a balance in training, competing, life and everything". I think it's about him, the period he's in.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr. expected to play tonight
Stafford might be the highest-paid player in the league, but he hasn't been successful on the road, especially against good teams. They never got the play off, instead being called for a costly delay of game that forced them to settle for a field goal.

Pochettino also insists the club should be aiming for the biggest prizes in the Premier League and Champions League rather than settling for success in the domestic cup competitions.

Under Pochettino, Spurs were the last team standing between the last two league title winners, and they reached the 2015 League Cup final in his first season at White Hart Lane. For a big team to win trophies, it means the Premier League or Champions League. If we are going to try to win Carabao Cup or FA Cup, and forget the Premier League or Champions, it's a big mistake.

The Carabao Cup returns to our screens once again this week, with the Premier League big-boys welcomed to the competition at the third round stage.

Despite the inexperience of the side, Pochettino has resisted the temptation to make Alli skipper, declining to say who would lead the team.

"Look, that is the most important example - of course, I would like to win trophies but first of all we'll fight for the Premier League or the Champions League".
