Pochettino reveals missed Trippier text

Pochettino reveals missed Trippier text Mauricio Pochettino says Kieran Trippier tried to contact him to explain he felt his words had been "twisted" while on international duty.

The Spurs boss vowed to fight on after Tuesday’s Carabao Cup loss to Colchester but said: “Of course I am suffering. Football is about glory, it is about winning. Poch , 47, took Spurs to the Champions League final last season and is on the radar of both Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Yet the fight Spurs showed in the former Roman stronghold was more Gus Caesar than Julius. Spurs fans — who have been through far tougher times — should be in dreamland but there is a lot of negativity and Poch has to hold his hands up.

Mauricio Pochettino has assured Spurs fans that he is fully committed to turning their season around.

Spurs have won just two of their opening eight games in all competitions this campaign and went out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday when they lost on penalties to League Two Colchester.

Spurs' early blitz floors Palace

Spurs' early blitz floors Palace Tottenham's season got up and running courtesy of a four-goal first-half blitz against Crystal Palace to run out 4-0 winners. After taking just five points from their opening four games, Mauricio Pochettino's men burst into life with a thumping first-half display where goals from Heung-Min Son (10 & 23), Erik Lamela (42) and a Patrick van Aanholt own goal (21) floored Roy Hodgson's side. Crystal Palace may have a fine record overall against the 'big six' but Spurs have now won the last nine Premier League meetings between the teams with no Palace player scoring in the last eight.

Is Poch getting itchy feet? Pochettino is now in his sixth season at the helm, and nine of his current strongest starting XI were in the side that challenged Leicester for Spurs struggling at both ends of the field. Pochettino did warn there would be a "painful rebuild" of his squad this summer, but it ended

The England man has not started for Spurs since the 2-0 Champions League final defeat to Liverpool last season. “He has to wait through training and then of course he has the opportunity. He has to try to fight for his place. “We have a big squad, I need to take the decision performance by performance.

"The challenge is to get back there and I told you we are going to fight to try to make this possible to try to change the history of this club.

"I am happy now because I am positive and of course this season is going to be another massive challenge to change the game and have that energy to try to be contenders and try again to fight for big things.

Bernardo Silva with a football ball: This has been a vintage Premier League season. Two of the finest sides in top-flight history are fighting for the title; four sides are scrapping for the two remaining places in the top four; four more teams have a realistic shot at the final European place; and the last remaining relegation slot hasn't yet been allocated. Right now, Liverpool and Manchester City matches are must-watch events where the smallest slip-up could cost either side everything. As a result of their excellent campaigns, many of their players feature in the higher echelons of this list – but there's been much more than those two sides to celebrate this term…
