Tottenham's players are blaming the intensity of their training schedule for the club's poor start to the season, with a number of them unhappy at the lack of time off they are given by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino expects “natural leader” Harry Kane to manage the responsibility of the captaincy without a problem.
The striker has been handed the armband in the absence of Hugo Lloris, who is not expected to play again in 2019 due to an arm injury.
Tottenham fans may just have to be patient over the return of Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon to the team. We have so far seen very little of the summer signings in action this season due to injury, with the former the only one to feature after coming off the bench in three of the opening four league games.
Five years, over 200 appearances, so many incredible highs and a few crushing lows, Eric Dier has been a constant in this team since arriving at the same time as Mauricio Pochettino ahead of the 2014/15 season. He cares, is hurt by recent results and determined to help put matters right.
