Dele Alli has admitted that Tottenham players were swept off their feet after emerging Premier League contenders but have since readjusted after the surprise defeat by Wolves.

It was an interesting admission by Alli, who helped Spurs make an impressive response by beating Cardiff 3-0 in the league before captaining the side to a record 7-0 away win against Tranmere in the FA Cup on Friday.

"If you want to win titles and be consistent, not only do you need to play well with quality but being competitive is about being tough in some games", said Pochettino on Monday.

Son, 26, has scored nine goals in his past 10 games for Spurs, who will be without the South Korea worldwide after January 13 due to the Asian Cup.

"He is obviously in great form and it will be sad to see him go but he will be back and we just keep going".

"The other day I saw a stat that in the last 10 years in England and in Europe how the teams were spending money, and I think we were on the bottom, in England and Europe", he added. Lucas [Moura] is a fantastic player as well, or whoever the manager decides to put in.

Pochettino's second-place side face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last-16 and return to action on Tuesday with a mouth-watering Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea.

"He's an unbelievable player, with both feet, and has an eye for goals and he can produce magic out of nothing".

Pochettino's ability to succeed despite a barrage of problems - including the delay to the opening of their new stadium - that could have derailed their season has seen him strongly linked with taking over at Manchester United or Real Madrid next season. For now, though, as United work hard in the Dubai heat until Thursday, the above team is developing a kind of chemistry not seen for years at Old Trafford.

Alli's own form heading into the new year capped off a memorable 2018 in which he emerged as one of the biggest stars of the English game - a year he is keen to build upon in 2019 as he attempts to end Spurs' decade-plus wait for a trophy. "As players you want to get as far in the cup as we can, hopefully win it".

Players like Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Fred and Diogo Dalot will need further minutes to find their flow, and Solskjaer knows this.
