Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur

Share

The Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Tottenham will be broadcast on NBC. Santiago Solari has been in charge on a caretaker basis for the last three matches, but speculation continues over who will take the job long term.

"Yes it is true if you said to me would you prefer all my global players stay here and rest for two weeks without competition, I would say yes", he said. That is why we were talking before about Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen and worldwide duty.

"Normally you see that run of fixtures and think, "Oh here we go", but we just can't wait". How do you manage that?

However, there's no way that they can keep him out of Gareth Southgate's plans.

While Lloris had threatened another in a series of errors earlier in the game, the Spurs captain stepped up in the final 10 minutes to make a trio of saves, firstly pushing away a powerful swinger from Jeffrey Schlupp's right foot.

He's been directly involved in five goals in 13 games so far this campaign, but those numbers should shoot up when he is back to his best.

"If Harry Kane is Italian and he's playing for an Italian side he's going to be a bit more protected, because the Italian people are more protective of their players". But in a press conference this week, Pochettino reiterated his commitment to Spurs, while acknowledging that rumours are part and parcel of football. It's not only the pressure from the coaching staff, fans and club. That rumour you tell me and the opposite appeared [in the media] the other day.

Either side of the creditable draw with Arsenal, Palace have lost to Bournemouth, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton and Chelsea in the Premier League, as well as going down to Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup.

While pointing out the special qualities about English players, Pochettino said "In England you have some very good things here but there are things you need to improve with your own players", and then added "Kane is English and sometimes you push him to the sky and paradise and then you put him on the outside".
