No European striker better than Harry Kane right now - Arsene Wenger

No European striker better than Harry Kane right now - Arsene Wenger

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino fears that English football has changed for the worse as managers no longer have as much control over everyday business. Mahrez, 26, has not even trained with the mid-table Foxes since his dream move to the Premier League leaders collapsed.

That's not to mention Tottenham having the Premier League's top goalscorer over the last two seasons, nor a tighter and more ruthless style of play to Arsenal which contrasts sharply with the disjointedness and inconsistency of Wenger's twilight zone team.

Arsenal have only won one of their last seven Premier League meetings with Tottenham, although that did come in the last fixture back in November.

Fortunately, for Wenger's men, with Tottenham playing their home games at Wembley this season while White Hart Lane is rebuilt, it will be the first north London derby at the national stadium since 1993.

"It's hard [to be like Wenger]", Pochettino told reporters.




Earlier this week Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino defended his players by saying part of football is about "tricking the opponent" and, while Wenger believes those comments have been blown out of proportion, he said simulation was an increasing problem.

The acquisition of former Borrusia Dortmund duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is proving to be an awesome deal for Wenger's men who are pushing for a top-four finish having missed out of a place last season for the first time in 20 years.

The task for Pochettino is now to ensure Tottenham head to their new stadium as a Champions League club, with one point still separating them from Chelsea in fourth. 'For different reasons, it is tough.

However, despite an array of different choreographed embraces visible on the field, Son stated that not everyone at Hotspur Way has their own shake, revealing that he is just "too scared" to get boss Pochettino involved. "Sometimes you want your players to be intelligent, they have played a little bit with the rules, they make more of it on the penalty case", he said. Our new look forward line has a chance to perform on a big stage away from home against our local rivals.

He added: 'But now the owners are different. But now we are starting to feel that Wembley is home. When English football started to integrate more with European football, England started to share the Latin culture more. "We are creatures of habit". "But it's not just Alli, you see many British players in the last few years that if they get any contact, they're going over".
