Serge Aurier has settled in well at Tottenham Hostpur says Trippier

Serge Aurier has settled in well at Tottenham Hostpur says Trippier

Spurs, who beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League at Wembley on Wednesday, are yet to win a Premier League game in their temporary home.

Mauricio: "We are disappointed to drop two points".

Harry Kane failed to score in Tottenham's first three games despite taking his fair share of shots.

With Spurs having picked up just 11 points from their first nine games under the former Southampton boss in 2014, Kane - playing second fiddle to Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor at the time, struck a deflected free-kick victor in the 90th minute of a 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa. Last season, amid a fight for survival, his team were beating them 1-0 in the 88th minute, only to end up losing the game 1-3. But today we are at Wembley and White Hart Lane is in the history. "We can not compare last season with this season". The Welsh side rode their luck at times but few could argue against that.

Tottenham thought they should have been awarded a penalty in the dying stages when Serge Aurier seemed to have been brought down inside the area by Jordan Ayew, but Mike Dean booked the full-back for handball. What is not clear is why Mike Dean ...

Mauricio Pochettino feels Harry Kane does not have to leave the club, to be considered a world class player, following his performance at Wembley. I think I can help them a lot. He tried to justify by telling the players it was handball, it was handball, it was handball, shouting. I never like to speak about the referee but if you are not sure about the situation then why say it was handball? "You don't try to justify the decision".

Swansea, meanwhile, continued their strong form on the road so far this season.

Swans lost 1-0 at home to Newcastle on Sunday, a result that surprised Davies.

"Good defending has to be applauded", Swansea manager Paul Clement said.

"He shows every single day how he loves the club".

"It's going to be a hard game for us, there's no question about that", he said.

On a happier note, Pochettino reckons Harry Kane has a chance to break Alan Shearer's Premier League goalscoring record of 260. "It is similar to France and Spain".
