Tottenham's signings over the past two summers have been a mixed bag. If the manager wants to push me a bit higher in some games I'm happy to do that but I am a midfielder.

"Harry is a fantastic striker and who can get you a goal out of nothing".

Sanabria has been in good form of late, scoring three goals in his last five outings, including a strike for Betis against Real Madrid.

Spurs have won 12 matches in a row at their own stadium and that run has taken them to second in the Premier League and the semi-finals of the FA Cup. "Harry is for me the best player in the Premier League". Chelsea are placing top of the point table at the current moment.

The success of Alderweireld and Wanyama should not have come as a surprise.

The England worldwide thinks he and the rest of his Tottenham teammates "feel extra responsibility" because of Kane's absence and has highlighted the importance of spreading the goal burden while his partner in crime recovers.

The fact that they both came from Southampton is also significant.

"Then after I told them the news I said I couldn't understand why".

But while the media has called him a flop and linked him with a summer move away from White Hart Lane, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has rallied to his defense in press conference comments ahead of Sunday's match against Southampton.

Pochettino said that Alli's intelligence meant that he could play more than one role.

Southampton nearly found themselves back on level terms when a powerful Oriol Romeu shot from distance swerved past the post, but they were grateful to Forster after 23 minutes as he made a fine stop to claw away Toby Alderweireld's glancing header.

Whatever happens, White Hart Lane certainly looks like the place to be for football's next generation right now.

On changes to his side because of Kane's injury: "We hope things will be different this time but it was a different period, the team is different now". We should play like we did in the second half from the beginning.

"If you remember in some press conference I was asked about him".

Pochettino seemed to back off those comments here, instead implying that the public dressing-down was a motivational tactic. Outside the box he is playing like a midfielder. Southampton's miserable first-half was compounded when they lost striker Manolo Gabbiadini to injury.

Signing more players from Southampton won't be easy. "You can not guess with him", he is quoted as saying by The Sun. It is nice to have a manager behind me who backs me and trusts me as much as he does.
