Eriksen: Talented Tottenham can cope with Kane absence

A long-range strike from Christian Eriksen and a Dele Alli penalty extended Tottenham's unbeaten home record as they claimed a 10th successive league win at White Hart Lane. "He has an unbelievable personality and character".

"He is a player who likes to run into the box, he is very often very clever into the box".

Alli scored a spot-kick to make in 14 league goals this season, and 17 in all competitions, and after the game Pochettino said he "looks like a striker".

Pochettino is also a fan of midfielder James Ward-Prowse - "He's a great professional, a great player, he deserves to be called up for the national team".

It means the 20-year-old has now played central midfield, left and centre of an attacking three and up front for Pochettino.

"I think last season sometimes we fell behind and even at he start of this season we sometimes started slow", Alli said. It was good to go 2-0 up but anything can happen at 2-0 - you're not safe - and after they got that goal it was important we saw the game out. I felt disgusting straight after it but it's important I put it behind me and make sure I learn from it and keep improving.

"Our home form is fantastic". I think it is hard to respond to that (question) because he is a player who plays in his best position, he is a player who likes to run into the box, he is very often very clever into the box.

An Alarming Number of Kids Are Getting Their Hands on Opioids
A new study from the Children's Nationwide Hospital in OH shows how the nation's drug epidemic is impacting children. And adults need to keep track not only of their own medications, but those given to their children.

"But all we can do now is be motivated and try to take the games in the same direction and the same way we took before and try to win", the manager was quoted as saying by the club's official site.

"We have good players and we are playing well and other teams are dropping points".

"It is the same", Puel said of a decision Southampton did not get. I hope it is not bad. Pochettino will be encouraged that his team were able to earn another win right before the global break and the subsequent run of winnable matches. It was a good game.

"It was a odd game".

"We played very well in the first half, but then in the second we conceded a goal through a mistake". "It is another victory, we keep our position second and we have reason to be happy", said Pochettino.

Despite a nervy second half, Tottenham won without Harry Kane on Sunday as a spirited Southampton side came up short on the road.
