Getting used to a Wembley way will be hard, admits Mauricio Pochettino

They do have sufficient options at left-back to fill any holes as well with Mateo Darmian and Daley Blind who are both capable of playing the role if needed be.

That solitary victory came against CSKA Moscow and since then they have drawn to Belgian outfit Gent, who subsequently knocked them out of the Europa League, and lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

That leaves Kyle Walker-Peters as the only fit fight-back at White Hart Lane.

"You need to understand that Rose gave his opinion", Pochettino said. In their past nine matches at Wembley, which Tottenham used for their home matches in Europe last season, Spurs have won only once.

"I'd have fancied Tottenham quite strongly if they didn't have to play at Wembley".

Tottenham fans feel that above all in July and the first half of August, when the division's big-spenders flex their financial muscles while Spurs apparently dip their toes tentatively in the shallower waters of the transfer market, if at all.

For the time being Wembley will be home, a place where they have struggled in recent years, with the larger pitch not suiting Pochettino's high-pressing style, while the distance the 90,000 fans are away from it can result in a less intense atmosphere than at their ground. "I don't want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal".

"The type of player we want to add is very specific and it has been hard to make it happen early on in the transfer window, but we are so calm".

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has termed Premier League clubs' spending big this summer unsustainable and has insisted that they will only do business if they find the right player at the right price.

"As a starting 11 we have one of the best in the league, without a shadow of a doubt, but after that".

Ideally, for a team that is competing on as many fronts as Spurs are, one would like to have two players in every position that they can rely on, but that could hardly be said for Pochettino's available roster.

The Hornets only just avoided the relegation zone last season, they are still looking like they could climb with the quality in their squad. It's Tottenham's time to get involved.

Premier League defenders will, therefore, be dreading the thought of how many goals a Harry Kane with a full pre-season under his belt could manage.

Now, Savage believes they will suffer a similar fate and has tipped a 2-1 win for the Magpies over Tottenham in his predictions for the weekend. I do see them collecting all three points in a real tough encounter but there will certainly be some shaky patches during the ninety minutes.
