Pochettino may rest Alli, Eriksen against Palace

Spurs make the trip to Selhurst Park on Saturday for what will be their fifth game in 13 days and last before the November internationals.

"Yes it is true if you said to me would you prefer all my worldwide players stay here and rest for two weeks without competition, I would say yes", he said.

With Tottenham and Manchester United up next for Palace, on top of meetings with Man City and Chelsea in December, Hodgson needs his side to turn their so-called promising displays into all three points if they are to avoid dropping below the dotted line. That is why we were talking before about Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen and worldwide duty.

Pochettino then said "That is why sometimes when he doesn't score he is so obsessed with scoring, that sometimes it is against him because sometimes you need more freedom, not to be obsessed", and further added "But he is going to learn because I think he is now starting to be really mature because he is still young". If you see our schedule for the next few months it will be so tough.

Townsend has become a key figure for the Eagles and also made a big impact on Winks at Spurs by helping him settle into the first-team fold during the 2013/14 campaign.

Tottenham have been far from their sparkling best so far this season, but it's worth nothing they are fourth in the Premier League and still fighting to qualify out of their hard Champions League group.

SS Rajamouli's blockbuster film series, Baahubali will be a bigger spin- off project based on a prequel of the movie. The film will follow the story of the victims and survivors of the devastating terrorist attacks on Mumbai in 2008.

While talking about Kane, Mauricio Pochettino told "He is a killer, an assassin, a killer", and added, "He always in practice in everything he wants to kill the goalkeeper, everything".

Pochettino has masterminded it by using more players than any other side and he finally feels happy with his back-up players.

"It's so important. Because competition in football is an important thing that puts pressure on yourself".

Real sacked coach Julen Lopetegui last week and Pochettino's recent statement that he had his "worst feeling" in his 41/2 years at the club fuelled rumours that he could soon be on his way to Spain.

"It's from your team-mate". You need to stop him training because he always wants to train, to improve. We got the win finally, but you can never underestimate a team like Crystal Palace.
