Despite the problems he faces, Pochettino remains happy with his decision to sign a new deal in May, committing himself to Spurs for another five years.

But Pochettino said: "It's 100 per cent impossible, 100 per cent, to stop injuries".

"We know this team will take possession off us and we must be ready for working altogether off the ball and suffer and show the solidarity and great effort".

"I feel the responsibility to be here and that is why I am here. We want to go again". It's the same situation, we created the competition and it's the same situation for Bettinelli and other keepers as it is for other parts of the squad. "It is easy when everything is good to be there but, when the winter is coming, it's easy to run away". Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen. But Pochettino has leapt to the defence of his boss.

"He is doing, with the board, an awesome effort to create the legacy that will be there for the rest of the generation, and forever". Of course, I laugh a little bit but we played with 17 or 18-year-old midfielders. Pochettino believes that he needs to stick with the club at the times adversity.

"I want to say thank you and apologise". I'm sure we're going to have success in the future, with myself or with another manager.
