Last minute Pochettino call convinced Llorente to snub Chelsea

Harry Winks

The England global was suspended for the Wednesday's impressive 3-1 Champions League win against Borussia Dortmund in which Son scored the opening goal.

But for Spurs supporters who follow their side around the country there has never been a better time to support the north London outfit. While Chelsea may have offered him only a one-year deal - as is our custom with every player already over 30 years of age - Spurs gave him a two-year contract with an option for a third depending on how many games he plays.

In addition to Rose and Lamela, Victor Wanyama will miss the Swansea clash at Wembley on Saturday with a knee injury.

Harry Kane opened the scoring for the hosts, converting a controversially won penalty on 39 minutes, before Son Heung-min doubled their lead just minutes before the half-time interval.

"With the new players coming in, it takes a bit of time for things to re-align and that's something that is going on at the moment".

Christian Eriksen added to the Swans' misery as he claimed a double of his own, helping Mauricio Pochettino's men win all three points following a commanding performance. He is so happy not only in the Premier League, he is more than happy to stay at Tottenham.

After notching a brace in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund, the Spurs hitman will be brimming with confidence.

"For me there is no doubt Harry Kane is one of the best strikers [in the world]".

MAURICIO POCHETTINO admits he is anxious about long-term injury victim Danny Rose.

Georges-Kevin N'Koudou has struggled to make an impact at Tottenham Hotspur since his move from Marseille in the summer of 2016.

Even before, but especially after the bust-up between striker Diego Costa and the training staff and physios in January, Chelsea had been looking to bring in Fernando Llorente from Swansea City.

Mauricio Pochettino's team begin the weekend in fifth, while the visitors are in 14th.
