Alan Shearer: Tottenham boss Pochettino needs to be more like Mourinho


West Ham had some momentary hope of snatching a draw with Tottenham on Saturday, however that result would have been a travesty for Spurs.

Tottenham face a demanding fixture list next month that includes Bournemouth, Liverpool, and Manchester United in the Premier League, West Ham in the Carabao Cup and Real Madrid in the Champions League.

"Daniel Levy says when we have an offer but I am always involved in the end of the negotiation".

A couple of hours before the midday kickoff, they had milled around this magnificent arena that hosted both the 2012 Olympics, as well as this year's IAAF World Championships - some spending time in the stadium shop to purchase club memorabilia and the match-day programme.

"I love him, his team-mates love him, the fans love him and not just for being a wonderful striker, but for his attitude and professionalism".

West Ham will be without the injured duo Manuel Lanzini and Pedro Obiang, who are expected to return to action only after next month's global break.

Tottenham wing-back Serge Aurier was then shown a second yellow card 20 minutes from time for a late tackle on Andy Carroll.

"There's so much more to happen, so who knows what the ending will be?"

"Got any friends who are, say, worldwide drug barons?"

"He deserved all the praise and our decision (paid off) to be fearless and give him the possibility to play in a club like Tottenham when you fight for big things".

It was two nil just four minutes later when Alli was played through on goal, but Hart was out quickly to save his shot, though the rebound ended up landing to Kane, who slotted home.

To their credit, Hammers staged a decent recovery with Javier Hernandez scoring following a 65th-minute corner and then twice later had Hugo Lloris at full stretch. "We have a very good communication with doctor, physio, sports science, coaching staff to try to help him".

"We are disappointed we lost the game", he said. Until their first goal we were there. "It's not that they didn't deserve it, but until that first goal we were proper like a year ago against them, a really good performance". They scored another before we got it back.

"I think we can definitely be proud of that". He decided the game.

The Argentine also quashed rumours that the England global was set for a £50m summer move to Manchester United by insisting he was not told about any bids.

Tottenham: Lloris 6; Alderweireld 7, Sanchez 6.

He also said the striker is one of the best in the world, let alone the Premier League.
