Mauricio Pochettino reckons that it’s quite hard for the players to walk into a club in the middle of the season and get going straightaway. Every club has different culture, different style of play, the teams have different formations. So the players gradually understand it with time and then ease into playing and performing for the club. It happens over time and not straightaway.

That’s why it’s always good that you make your signings in the summer rather than winter because if you buy someone in summer, the player gets that time during the pre-season to settle within the group and adapt himself to the club’s brand of Football. When he comes in winter, he doesn’t have that time.

We don’t want to lose our best players but it’s football and it might happen.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has urged England manager Gareth Southgate to resist playing Dele Alli against Panama. The Three Lions midfielder is already said to be carrying a groin strain from the 2-1 win over Tunisia and Merson believes the 22-year-old should not be risked against a side whoare likely to defence for most periods of the game.

He told Sky Sports News: “I probably wouldn't have played Dele Alli in that [Tunisia] game and I wouldn't have been fussed about playing him against Panama. Dele Alli needs to be playing in games where the other teams are going to have a go at us and there's grass on the other side. He's very good without the ball and makes good runs, but there's got to be space. In the first two games there will be 10 behind the ball, but against Belgium and in the knockout stages I think Dele Alli will be a better player.”

Speaking after the game, Pochettino admitted that his side deserved more than a draw, whilst insisting that the gap to leaders Manchester City is 'massive', he said: "It is true the gap now is 10 points. It is massive in the Premier League, but now we need to be focused on trying to improve us and try to be more consistent here at Wembley. And try to win more games here like last season at White Hart Lane. It’s true it’s different to White Hart Lane. That is our reality, we cannot escape it. Our reality is we are playing here, waiting for our new stadium. That is not an excuse. The team is doing well and only disappointed because we dropped two points when we should have taken all three."
