Danny Rose was right to speak out on Tottenham policy — Sunday Supplement

Eric Dier scored in his first two Spurs games from right back

Eric Dier scored in his first two Spurs games from right back

They won only one of those four home games, and were eliminated from both competitions at the first opportunity.

Jermaine Jenas has criticised his former club for their limited wage structure, and believes it is holding the club back from becoming one of the elite.

Blues manager Antonio Conte is reportedly eager to bolster his wing-back options and the arrival of Rose would see Marcos Alonso reduced to being a squad player. They have an excellent goalkeeper and captain in Hugo Lloris. They have a fluid midfield who defend very well and have skillful attacking players.

This will be a repeat of Newcastle's last Premier League game in May 2016 - when they thrashed Spurs 5-1 at St James' Park.

After finishing second last season, Tottenham will hope their winning start bodes well for a sustained title challenge. But this season seems different.

Kentucky mayor says he wants to move two Confederate statues
Dark said he is hoping to expel Confederate statues at the city's Historic Courthouse, which will be the city's new guests focus. Gray further explained his reasoning in a video on Sunday. "And yes, we need to remember it and not erase it".

Pochettino made fun of Rose's plea by mentioning that he was an unknown manager when he was appointed as manager of Southampton in 2013 and further illustrated his point through the rise of footballers such as Dele Alli, N'Golo Kante and Eric Dier.

But in football they say, "buy when at the top".

Pochettino also admitted Tottenham have to strengthen their squad this month.

The Spurs chief has yet to make a splash in the transfer market this summer despite netting a £50million windfall from selling Kyle Walker.

Mail on Sunday chief sports writer Holt said: "I'm not going to hold Danny Rose up as a freedom fighter, but I think a lot of people are thinking that he's just saying what other Spurs players are thinking".

Their chairmen Daniel Levy would rather invest his money in building out the infrastructure of the club, including Tottenham's new 61,000-seater stadium in north London and their state of the art training facilities for the first team and the youth academy.

"We needed to change players and bring new faces". It's all the more impressive given the two separate periods he sat on the sidelines for recovering from ankle ligament injuries. Kane, though, was sidelined twice during the campaign and that directly affected their results.

Will Tottenham start slowly again?

So why aren't players arriving? Arsenal faced similar issues from the mid- to late-noughties. After a second place finish previous year, Spurs are looking to continue their winning ways and find themselves at the top of the table come May. So, effectively, they will play all of their matches away from home.

"I don't think it's a matter to joke about because with some of the worldwide players today, maybe one or two years ago, none of us knew them very well". Aided by a Cahill sending off they were 3-0 up at half-time, only for a late fightback to nearly grab a point for Chelsea despite Fabregas also getting a late red.

The quality of the opposition was good in nearly all of those matches, but Tottenham did seem like a fish out of water in the unfamiliar surroundings.
