After the 1-0 win over Arsenal, Mauricio Pochettino has come out and stated that Arsenal is not a club that his team are looking at, given how much the Lilywhites have done in recent years.

Post the result, which saw us climb to 3rd in the Premier League until Liverpool’s victory, Pochettino also played down the rivalry between the sides and was quoted by the Telegraph as saying:

“We don’t care if Arsenal are behind us – we are winning because we are building something special.

“Some performances and some results make us trust in the way we play. My idea against Juventus is to keep playing the same, to try and be a little bit braver if we can, but being clever because their level is one of the best.”

The Argentine was also quick to suggest that the next game, which is a tough tie against Juventus, will see them go up against one of the best clubs in Europe. However, he insists that our side is ready to face the defending Serie A champions.

“It’s better that I don’t tell them that,” said Pochettino, when it was highlighted that the back four of Juve have only conceded once in their last 16 games.

“That will be my psychology. It’s a great team – one of the best in Europe and they have a lot of experienced players who know what it is to compete in the Champions League. We don’t have that but our belief, our confidence and our form are good. We will be ready to be very competitive.”

A Gap Too Far For The Opposition To Bridge

How times have changed between the two rivals. It was Arsenal, just a few years ago, who would boast of those glorious Champions League fixtures, while we struggled to perform and become regulars in the main European competition.

The slide from Arsenal has met with the rise of our side under Pochettino and it should come as no surprise given how smart we have been with the development of players such as Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and even Kyle Walker, though the latter has now moved on to Manchester City.

We are constantly improving and now we have to win a title or two. That is the one thing which is missing from our locker and should Pochettino keep up the good work, we will win trophies eventually.

Tottenham handed major boost as Barcelona star picks up hamstring injury ahead of Champions League clash

Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona

Football.london reports that Ivan Rakitic could be a doubt for our Champions League clash against Barcelona next month.

The Croatian was subbed in the 3-2 win over Spain in the Nations League and didn’t play against England recently.

An update on Barcelona’s Twitter account was posted and didn’t confirm when the player could be fit.

Should the hamstring strain be severe, the player could miss a month or more, and Tottenham need all the luck they can get in their Champions League group.

Tottenham might need to win both their clashes in the group, and they don’t come easy with us facing Inter Milan at Wembley before that big clash against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs gave themselves a lifeline against PSV with a late win, and we need similar heroics when we face the Serie A side.

Inter Milan beat us 2-1 and we will have to win by two clear goals or by a scoreline of 1-0 to get a better head to head than our rivals.

Barcelona have had their own struggles with a porous defence, and they conceded four goals in a shock 4-3 loss to Real Betis at the Nou Camp.

This should provide Spurs with some hope for the all-important clash and it will be better if some of the top Barca players can’t play the game.

26-year-old Tottenham star finds himself on Juventus’ radar for the January window

Juventus have made Christian Eriksen one of their top targets as they try to add quality in the winter window, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Mail).

The report adds that Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are all targets for the Serie A giants, and a reunion with the Manchester United man is their first choice.

Should a move not work out for Pogba, Eriksen is the man Juventus believe they can get. The Dane has struggled with injury this season at Tottenham and has recorded a single goal for the side.

Juventus have made it a habit of getting some quality players on the cheap and Eriksen is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

The attacking midfielder has been missed this season but we have done a decent job without him. Spurs are fourth in the Premier League just five points behind Manchester City, and our next clash is against Chelsea after the international break.

Eriksen has had a tough time with an injury this season but has recovered from the abdominal issue. The 26-year-old played the entire 90 against Wales and is expected to play again before the end of the international break.

Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and a similar return would be great after an injury-affected campaign.

England looked set for more international heartbreak as Croatia were leading in their UEFA Nations League game.

The hosts then turned things up a notch after Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser and Tottenham star Harry Kane got the winner.

The England captain turned saviour for the side again, but another Tottenham man also turned the game on its head with his arrival.

Dele Alli didn’t start in the important clash against the Croatians but came on with around 30 minutes remaining in the tie.

The Englishman didn’t score or grab an assist but his attacking display helped England to the semi-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old has struggled for goals and assists this season, but this performance certainly led to several Tottenham fans applauding the youngster.
