Alli and Pochettino sing Foyth's praises

Mauricio Pochettino says the wait for the new stadium will be worth

Mauricio Pochettino says the wait for the new stadium will be worth

The match opened up a little in the second half and Foyth scored his first Spurs goal, making the most of static Palace defending and consigning Roy Hodgson's men to a fifth defeat in six Premier League outings.

They have had to fight through this strenuous run of games with Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, and Eric Dier all suffering injuries.

Alli has been managing a hamstring problem, Dier has missed the last three games with a thigh injury and Eriksen has not fully recovered from an abdomen injury, yet all three have been called up by their countries for the games next week.

"Yes it is true if you said to me would you prefer all my worldwide players stay here and rest for two weeks without competition, I would say yes", he said.

Lucas Moura then got in Dele Alli's way as the England global look set to meet Serge Aurier's inviting cross from the right.

It's a good sign that the North London club are still on the main winning games and everything could be falling into place for them, as key players return from injury. How do you manage that?

"I was a centre-back and you're involved in these situations The trust from us is massive and from his team-mates". It's hard to push [them to the top] but when they are there, they try to keep them up there.

With Mousa Dembele out for the rest of 2018 it seems likely that Dier will come straight back into the side at Selhurst Park. If Harry was Italian and playing for the Italian side, he would be a bit more protected because the Italian people are more protective of their players.

"Of course now every time I decide to pick my starting XI I have a name I feel comfortable to play", he added. But in a press conference this week, Pochettino reiterated his commitment to Spurs, while acknowledging that rumours are part and parcel of football. That rumour you tell me and the opposite appeared [in the media] the other day. Look, we just laugh about that situation because to improve you need to make mistakes, and only making mistakes can you find what it means, and that is going to help him to not repeat again the same situation.
