Brazilian powerhouse Sandro has been turning heads the second half of the season with a series of fine performances alongside Luka Modric in the Spurs midfield at the expense of Tom Huddlestone.

Signed back in August, it wasn’t until the last 16 first leg of Tottenham’s 1-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro when Sandro began to show his worth. Initially struggling with the pace of the Premier League, he has begun to fulfill his promise and more is expected of him in the coming seasons.

Current captain Michael Dawson was quick to praise the midfielder quoting “Sandro’s performances in the Champions League were great and he certainly makes our job a lot easier.

He sits just in front, wins balls, breaks play up, tracks players and we all know now he can score goals after that strike at the weekend. He’s a top, top player.

“He’s also a great lad to have in and around the club.

“He’s still learning English but he’s full part of the banter and everyone loves him in the changing room.”

Harry Redknapp has echoed Dawson’s sentiments saying “Sandro is emerging as a top player. He’s come into the English game and his performance against City’s strong midfield was excellent.”

With one goal to his name, a 30 yard wonder strike in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea earlier in the month, more is expected to come from Sandro.

“We know we have to win” – Tottenham star puts pressure on team ahead of PSV clash

Erik Lamela

Tottenham star Erik Lamela has put pressure on the club to go out and win against PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday.

Spurs lost their opening two games in their Champions League group, just like PSV, and have to beat the Dutch side if they have any chance of making it into the next round.

Barcelona beat us 4-2 while we lost in the last minute against Inter Milan in our group opener.

Lamela has been one of the stars for Spurs this season and was quoted by the Daily Star as saying:

“We know we have to win. Unfortunately we started the Champions League by losing in Milan.

“After, we lost against Barcelona and we will not have too many more chances, so we have to win.”

The Argentine scored in our 1-0 win over West Ham recently and his form will be crucial in getting all three points against the Dutch team.

Spurs need a bit of a miracle to make it into the next round and the next two clashes against PSV will be important.

Six points from the two games should give us a fighting chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds. Anything less than that, and we might need to defeat Barcelona or Inter Milan in our final group games, which won’t be an easy task.

Hugo Lloris

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris doesn’t believe he will finish his career at the London club. The Frenchman was taking part in a Q+A session with Telefoot (h/t Evening Standard) and was asked if Spurs would be his final club.

The former Lyon keeper said: “I don’t think so.”

The report adds that should Lloris see out his current contract with Spurs, he would have spent a decade at the club.

The keeper helped the France national side to the World Cup in 2018 but claimed there were no offers for him post the victory.

Lionel Messi and Hugo Lloris

Lloris has been one of the best keepers in the world in recent years and claimed his future at the club is dependent on our manager.

“My future is tied to Mauricio’s. That is certain.”

The report adds that Pochettino signed a new contract with Spurs in the summer but has been linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Pochettino is one of the best managers in the world and it comes as no surprise that others are interested in him.

Lloris, for his part, has done very well at Tottenham and is only 31. The Frenchman seems to be hitting his prime at the club, which is a huge bonus for us. The only thing he has to work on is removing the minor errors in his game, which hasn’t cost us much.
