Ben Davies: Tottenham guarding against backlash, says ex-Swansea defender

TOPSHOT- Tottenham Hotspur's Spanish striker Fernando Llorente vies with Borussia Dortmund's Greek defender Sokratis during the UEFA Champions League Group H football match between

"Because if Spurs maintain just being a top four team, that will not be good enough for somebody like Harry Kane.I think he needs to be challenging for Ballond'Ors".

The former Swansea City striker came off the bench for the final couple of minutes at Wembley to help Spurs see the game out.

For all of Spurs dominance Pochettino's men struggled to get their first win at the Wembley Stadium.

Harry Kane is now back to his goal-scoring best, with August having ended and has scored some important goals in their last two games. Serge Aurier could have earned a late penalty when he went down under the slightest of clips from Jordan Ayew, while Martin Olsson was twice fortunate not to concede a spot-kick, once after blocking Toby Alderweireld and then for touching a loose ball with his hand.

"But I've had these situations before, when you're playing against sides with an outstanding talent".

In any case, we hope Llorente enjoys his project of getting paid to watch Harry Kane score lots of goals.

"The truth is that Chelsea have been after me for a long time but at the end you know how this works", Llorente said.




This is just the second win of Tottenham's occupancy at Wembley, which includes all last season's residence Champions Organization team stage video games and 2 Premier Organization matches this campaign.

"Always in football, when you don't get good results, the first to be sacked is the manager".

'That is why that goal allowed us to carry on working and try to change the club.

"After the long term like him, I think it is hard for him because players love to play football and be fit and healthy".

Poch's response was maybe prompted by Crystal Palace's odd decision to sack Frank De Boer, himself rumored to be a candidate for Pochettino's job in summer of 2014, after just a few games this season.

Despite being in the ascendancy, Spurs failed to create many clear openings in the first half, with Son Heung-Min's effort from a tight angle one of its best moments.

The 24-year-old has actually racked up more than 20 objectives in each of the past three Premier League projects as well as opened his make up this period with his 100th as well as 101st Tottenham goals in Saturday's 3-0 win at Everton.
