Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham 'have to be positive' about Harry Kane injury

Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham 'have to be positive' about Harry Kane injury

Son was the man that Pochettino turned to for goals when Kane was sidelined with a similar injury for a six-week spell between mid-September and November - and the South Korean responded in some style with some pretty impressive stats.

"We've enjoyed this competition - its' a been a great distraction for us", Harris enthused.

"If you remember one of our best performances was a game against Manchester City here and he was the striker here when Harry was injured (and set up Alli's goal)".

Son delivered the flawless response with his treble while further goals from Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen secured an emphatic success for Mauricio Pochettino's team.

Tottenham did suffer a setback with Harry Kane being forced off with an ankle injury early on, but it didn't effect them as they kept their composure in front of goal and produced a convincing display.

Bottled Water Most Popular Drink for 1st Time in History
That's quite the slide from the 1990s and early 2000s, when people were regularly guzzling more than 50 gallons yearly. Bottled water has been on an upward trajectory for the past 40 years, Beverage Consulting says.

"In this kind of play Burnley may be the best team because they are used to everything, they fight for the first ball, have a really good formation for the second ball, run in behind for the third ball".

Tottenham Hotspur (3-4-3): 13 Michel Vorm; 15 Eric Dier, 4 Toby Alderweireld, 5 Jan Vertonghen; 16 Kieran Trippier, 12 Victor Wanyama, 29 Harry Winks, 33 Ben Davies; 7 Heung-Min Son, 20 Dele Alli, 10 Harry Kane. Son can never be sure of a starting spot but he has netted 13 goals this season. When we talk in the past about the squad, look now: now we need to see how they are important. In the key period for any team, we may miss our main striker.

The breakthrough did arrive just after the half-hour mark, though, as Eriksen - Kane's replacement, despite Janssen being on the bench - swept home from 15 yards out when given a small sight of goal. Let's try and assess and see what happens in the next few days. With different names and different players. We have different opportunities to play, use different formations.

On Kane's injury, Alli told BBC One: "It is always disgusting to lose a player like Harry, he's been in top form, but I think that shows our depth in quality and everyone stepped up a gear".

"But like I say, everyone wants to score and I think this is a good thing for this club. It's hard for me to understand you in the press conference".
