Spurs sweat over Kane amid reports of lengthy absence

Spurs sweat over Kane amid reports of lengthy absence

"Tell me one 21-year-old that is better than him, and all that he achieves".

"I promise I am one of the most critical people with my players, but it is hard to criticise him".

Dele Alli and Danny Rose will face late fitness tests ahead of Tottenham's FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea this afternoon.

The 21-year-old has earned an unwelcome reputation for going to ground too easily, with referees now closely monitoring his every move.

'Capital One, Copa del Rey, FA Cup... they are very short periods and sometimes it is a coincidence, maybe you have some players not in good form, you compete and you are out.

"I think mostly for people on the outside, it's a lot about numbers or stats".

The England global left the field during the first half of the Premier League encounter on Sunday and later departed the stadium on crutches wearing a protective boot.

Pochettino won the Spanish Cup as a player in 2000 and 2006 but admitted Espanyol had been lucky and never went shooting up the league afterwards.

With Spurs trailing 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium, Pochettino called for Lamela - rather than striker Fernando Llorente or January signing Lucas Moura - to replace Kane when the Tottenham talisman hobbled off with ankle ligament damage, which will sideline him until next month.

Son, who scored home and away against Swansea last season, is a must bet at [3.0] to score anytime.

"He doesn't need to impress me because I know him very well and we know very well what we can expect from him", Pochettino added.

Pochettino is confident his team can cope without Kane despite admitting they would miss "one of the best strikers in the world". That's why I think it's important that players, not just about diving, about other stuff too, that you don't get too involved in it and just focus on what you are doing. "It is hard to criticise Dele".

Alli has already received two bookings for simulation this season, in games against Huddersfield and Liverpool, but the England worldwide insists he does not intentionally try to deceive officials.

Having started his tenure at United by winning the League Cup and the Europa League, Mourinho is looking for a third piece of major silverware in two seasons at the club and the 26th trophy of his 18-year coaching career.
