Pochettino: "I am in love" with Harry Kane

Mousa Dembele could be out of Tuesday's Champions League match against APOEL Nicosia

Right wing-back Aurier, making his full Premier League debut, was sent off 20 minutes from time after being shown a second yellow card for a tackle from behind on Andy Carroll, and he is the first Spurs player to be shown a red card in a league game since Vlad Chiriches against Stoke in May 2015, 868 days ago.

Pochettino was pleased with how his team "suffered" in the second half as they held off the West Ham fightback.

Kane said he felt Spurs had "played very well" to beat London rivals West Ham, despite being forced to hang on to their advantage as the home side pulled two goals back either side of Serge Aurier's sending off. "I think we can definitely be proud of that". It happened with me many times.

"They have a great young team but it's a case of rewarding him". He has settled really well.

"On Wednesday we had a dinner in a restaurant in London, with all the staff and players".

"Sometimes you are in a good mood, bad mood, you are sick, you eat something or you drink too much one night because you are in some party and then, the day after, you are weak!"

After a third consecutive game at Wembley without a win, Pochettino stressed the importance of creating an atmosphere where players are willing to run themselves into the ground for each other.

"We had steak from Spain and Australia but Argentine wine, which is the best!".

Pochettino went on to add that he is not a fan of players who nag managers for more game time as he feels his charges should do their talking on the pitch.

Spurs have endured a frustrating start to the campaign, winning just two of their opening five fixtures and following last weekend's stalemate, will be looking to get back to winning ways at the expense of Slaven Bilic's men on Saturday afternoon. Pochettino was asked in his post-match press conference whether Kane was the best striker in the country and replied that he could be judged as even better than that. I am in love, like the fans are in love, his team-mates are in love, not only because he scores goals but because how he is, a professional, humble. "That is why I am in love with him for different reasons".

"I see stuff go round on social media [about my goalscoring] but I don't think it". I am delighted to get a couple and help the team win. "It can help us improve and learn and be better during the season".
