Pochettino Banks On Champions League Inspiration For Tottenham Victory Vs Swansea

Sun on Sunday

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Tottenham to claim a 2-0 win over Swansea in Saturday's Premier League clash at Wembley.

This match pits the team with the most shots this season (Spurs, 79), versus the team to have attempted the fewest (Swansea, 26).

Pochettino, however, remains adamant that Wembley is not the problem. "We still need to improve a lot, but we are in a great way and the last two victories will help us".

"Maybe I can find many other goals that were fantastic but for me the goals are related to emotion, in the period you are living", Pochettino said.

Kane's stock continued to rise last season when he managed 29 goals, despite playing just 30 games and beat Romelu Lukaku to be top scorer for the second consecutive season. "Both are doing well but we have to wait and we can not give a date on their return to training". Spurs dropped their next match at home to Stoke City, but only lost two of their next fourteen games, and eventually finished in fifth place.

Leishman already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds. The following year, he won his second World Golf Championship, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship.

"There's no doubt Harry Kane is one of the best strikers", said Pochettino.

The Welsh side rode their luck at times as Tottenham hit the woodwork and had three penalty appeals turned down, but the hosts had only themselves to blame for failing to kill off Paul Clement's men. Nacer Chadli got a late equalizer before Kane stepped up to take that free kick in the 90th minute. "Only I was disappointed with Mike [Dean] because he tried to justify the last decision in the action that Aurier touched the ball with his chest". What is not clear is why Mike Dean.

The introduction of Fernando Llorente, a significant aerial threat, in the 74th minute made sense as the visitors sank even deeper, but it ultimately was not to be for Tottenham.

Swansea, meanwhile, continue their strong form on the road so far this season.

Mauricio Pochettino believes a certain goal in Harry Kane's first century of strikes for Tottenham was responsible for saving him from the sack. "We are showing that on our day we are hard to beat".
