Pochettino: Tottenham can't afford to chase Europe's elite players

Mauricio Pochettino: "There are many rumours but I am committed with the club, and have no reason to leave".

To compete with clubs like we are talking about it is too hard to drop in some periods to catch your opponent. Tottenham have now won just twice in 10 matches at Wembley since it reopened in 2007 - their latest defeat coming last month when they were beaten 4-2 by title winners Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Maybe we will change the formation.
