“Always he can surprise me, maybe one day he can play like a goalkeeper or a full-back or a centre-back”. I think the team deserved all the prizes because we have been playing very well.
– Since he made his Premier League debut in September 2013, Christian Eriksen has scored more goals from outside the box than any other player in the competition (13). For the record, I completely agree that Eriksen isn’t an elite level player, despite his obvious talents and excellent stats, but he does a decent job and seems to fit in with the group reasonably well: “who would you try to sign to replace him?” “He has an unbelievable personality and character”.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has praised the performances of Son Heung-min and Vincent Janssen during his side’s 2-1 victory over Southampton this afternoon. Now he will have the opportunity to play more, to be more involved.

“I have calmed down a bit but it’s important, I’m never going to take that out of my game”.
Danny Rose remains out with a knee injury but Mousa Dembele has recovered from a minor ankle problem while Victor Wanyama is also expected to feature despite picking up a neck injury last weekend.
The man in the middle later waved away Saints claims for a spot-kick when Ben Davies brought down Dusan Tadic.
On the touchline, Puel thrashed his arms in delight and his side, who had looked all but finished at half-time, were now dragging Spurs into a dogfight. “We controlled everything until our second goal”.
“We have different options (up front) – you could see in the last game against Millwall”. “It’s true it’s a hard task for us to find in the English market the right profile or player to add”.
“I’m still young. I’m 20 years old”.
“I applaud our attitude and desire and our way of thinking”, Mourinho said. Gabbiadini will now miss Italy’s games this global break because of his groin injury.
But Pochettino believes his title hopefuls, who host Southampton on Sunday, will ensure there isn’t another drop in form with England forward Kane back on the treatment table.
