They've won just as many games, 19, as the two giants ahead of them but lost more matches (something that hints at the level of exhaustion in the squad) and are in the knock out round of the Champions League.

"We play Thursday in the Carabao Cup against Chelsea, Sunday at Crystal Palace, Watford played Saturday so we had one less day and now we will play a team that signed players in the window and had one day more", Poch said.

Tottenham will next face Leicester City on Monday (AEDT). "That is the most important thing, it's a very good example for everyone, watching him play".

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane plans to step up his recovery from an ankle injury next week but will not push too hard to return earlier than expected, the 25-year-old said.
