Wembley can be 'magic' for Tottenham - Pochettino

"We have a good team, we're happy, and I think we can do even better than previous year".

Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino have improved dramatically over the past two campaigns, going from potential top four contenders to legitimate title contenders, though without any silverware to show for it.

Rose signed a new contract with the North London club recently but the Spurs boss has eradicated any players from his squad that are perceived as having a negative influence. We need to assess him on Monday and then we will see.

Tottenham do have a fight on their hands to keep hold of the 27-year-old and with these comments, it is only a matter of time before someone decides to make a move for Rose. A lot of Spurs fans aren't happy about this, especially considering Everton have been holding out for a ludicrous £50m fee, and because Ross Barkley is. well, Ross Barkley.

Rose, who has apologised for giving an interview criticising the club's transfer policy on the eve of the season, is expected to be back in action in September.

The great disappointment of last season for Tottenham was their European form, crashing out of the Champions League at the first opportunity before doing the same in the Europa League.

"It's a big challenge for us", the Argentine told TalkSport on Wednesday.

Pochettino refused to give away his contingency plan for replacing Trippier for this weekend but should Tottenham delve into the transfer market, teams will know they are desperate and charge more than what the player is actually worth.

If Tottenham were to add the three players named above, their squad would have additions, but it would be hard to say whether they are better than they were a season ago, even if a young academy player or two plays above their heads.

Benitez has not lost any of his previous eight Premier League home games as a manager against Spurs (W5 D3 L0).

Tottenham have really been stripped to the bare bones, with first choice full-backs Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose both being ruled out through injury. Spurs panic-bought last summer and ended up with Moussa Sissoko, they musn't do that again. Last season he finished the second half with eight goals and 15 assists in the League. A few clunkers at "home" next season could force Spurs off the rails.

Harry Kane. He is Tottenham's talisman, their home grown superstar, and the best striker in the Premier League two years running. Plus, this is his chance to prove to the rest of the league that he's more than just a three season wonder.
