Spurs boss talks about Saturday's Hawthorns meeting
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino held his press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Albion at The Hawthorns, and here’s what he had to say…
We have to assess some players on Friday. We have some issues. We hope it is not a big problem. We’re really happy with Harry Kane, but he is not ready yet.
We will assess Moussa Dembele on Friday. He got a knock on his foot in training and it’s only minor, but it’s painful for him.
We had a good win and a very exciting game against Manchester City but now we must be clever. We need to understand it will be a very tough game against West Bromwich, maybe more difficult than it was against Manchester City.
If we are not focused, and we don’t play with the same intensity and the same passion, I think that we will suffer a lot against a team that is very physical, strong.
It’s a different team and they push us in a different way than Manchester City. In the Premier League, you can never play at 70 or 80% of your capacity, you need to play always at 100%.
