Joining 100 club shows Kane already one of the best, says Pochettino

  • Christian Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur in action during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City at Wembley Stadium

"I showed the team the first goal that he scored against Borussia Dortmund, how he fought with two defensive players and then how he scored". "After a long-term injury it is so hard because all players love to play football, they love to be fit and healthy".

His 103 goals for Tottenham in 170 appearances stacks up favourably against the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who needed 188 and 253 games respectively to reach a century in club football. "This is the kind of game I would expect Spurs to win comfortably, regardless of the venue", he added.

That defeat came during Spurs' worst period of the season as they struggled to cope without Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane between mid-October and late November, winning just one of 10 matches in all competitions.

When possession is inevitably reclaimed, Swansea's own chances will fall to the considerable long ball ability of centre-back Alfie Mawson and the invention of former Spurs playmaker Tom Carroll.

That win over Villa was a major turning point for Tottenham that season.

He says the next day, a teacher yelled at him for sitting during the ritual, ClickOnDetroit reports . "It's his choice to sit". Stone's father, Brian Chaney, said at a board meeting it's his son's own decision to sit and he has the right to do so.


At the time of the Aston Villa game, Kane was Spurs' third-choice striker behind Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor, but the Englishman was rewarded for his job-saving goal by starting every league game that followed scoring another 20 goals to lift the club to sixth.

Tottenham have already dropped seven points from three games in front of their own fans this season - more than they did in the entire 2016-17 campaign at White Hart Lane - but Pochettino played down the significance of their dip in home form. They know better than me....

"I think he's awesome, one of the best strikers in the world, if not to say the best", the 32-year-old said of Kane. We are all excited it is a good result and now we have got to focus on the weekend.

Poch's response was maybe prompted by Crystal Palace's unusual decision to sack Frank De Boer, himself rumored to be a candidate for Pochettino's job in summer of 2014, after just a few games this season. "I really want to do my bit".

The England global striker was brilliant for Tottenham in the 3-1 win over Dortmund, scoring two impressive goals.
