Alderweireld's exclusion not due to contract issue, says Pochettino

Alderweireld's exclusion not due to contract issue, says Pochettino

Christian Eriksen scored both goals as Tottenham beat Stoke City 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium to cement their place in the top four of the Premier League table.

Harry Kane claimed he did score Tottenham's victor at Stoke to break a personal goals record, even though Christian Eriksen has been credited with it.

Look at the facilities of the new stadium!

Stoke sit three points adrift from safety - which effectively becomes four given their goal difference - but even a point against their more illustrious opponents would be regarded as acceptable with four winnable games still to come in their remaining five fixtures.

Following Harry Kane's ankle ligament injury picked up back in March, the striker made a 15-minute appearance against Chelsea on Sunday.

"When we decide, it's not about personal feelings or emotions, it's about providing the team with the best tools to win", said the Spurs manager.

Pochettino continued: "I am so sorry because Toby was an important player for us in the last two seasons".

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Pochettino said: "It was fantastic in the moment that we achieved the victory".

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino insists he and his players are not bothered by chairman Daniel Levy's income. By holding his head up high and sending a dignified and professional message like this, Alderweireld has shown that he's a class act off the pitch as well as on it. Spurs might have amble back-ups but that shouldn't diminish what Alderweireld has done for them and will go on to do for other teams.

The two goal hero of the previous week's 3 - 1 win at Stamford Bridge rolled square to Eriksen who drilled into the corner.

Everton and Liverpool served up a goalless, and surprisingly bloodless, affair in the 231st Merseyside derby on Saturday with Juergen Klopp's Reds missing their chance to jump into second place in the Premier League.

As for Spurs, the North London outfit will extend their advantage over fifth-placed Chelsea to 11 points if they can register victory at the bet365 Stadium.

"I think since I've been here the supporters have been first-class".
