Son scores late to earn Spurs win

Mauricio Pochettino felt his Tottenham side were worthy of their late victor against Newcastle before insisting he will not be cheering on rivals Arsenal when they meet fellow title hopefuls Manchester City on Sunday.

I am so cautious driving.' Tottenham did not add to their squad in January and have not signed a player for more than a year but Harry Kane is on the mend with his personal fitness coach in the Bahamas.

Such a move would be costly however, as Chelsea would be required to pay around £50m in compensation after Pochettino signed a new five-year contract at Spurs last year.

However, Pochettino has admitted he is "disappointed" at being unable to strengthen his squad.

Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham do not have the fastest auto and is a self-confessed cautious driver but still hopes his slow and steady approach can prove effective in the title race.

Former manager Redknapp, however, has backed Pochettino to succeed as he believes the Argentine already has a capable at his disposal.

He told Sky Sports: 'It's going well.


"No, we play it with Harry Kane too", said Pochettino. I know that for a fact.

Spurs, who will assess Son Heung-min after his midweek exertions on his first game back from global duty, will climb into second place and four points behind leaders Liverpool, albeit temporarily, if they win the lunchtime kick-off.

It was Son's ninth goal in his past 10 appearances for Tottenham and a cruel blow for Newcastle who looked to have done enough to earn a point before the keeper's howler. But sometimes we are forced to take some decisions.

The Blues' board are said to be livid with the club's embarrassing Premier League defeat against Bournemouth, although Chelsea bounced back with an impressive result against Huddersfield.

"And with more help from some players, we can not use the excuse we aren't a real contender". We just believe, work hard and see what's going to happen at the end of the season.

Another massive effort from the squad, the team and I'm more than pleased, more than happy.

"I can not tell you if he is ahead of schedule or not", said Pochettino, whose side host Newcastle on Saturday.
