Pochettino focused on next Tottenham game - not Arsenal jinx

He now has his eye on twenty Premier League goals for the campaign.

It's been an incredible rise for the 20-year-old since he arrived in north London from MK Dons, as he now has 14 Premier League goals this season, just five less than Kane, albeit the striker was missing earlier this season due to injury too.

"As soon as Harry got injured, we felt it was important that we all stepped up, did our piece and chipped in with the goals now", said Alli.

The fact that they both came from Southampton is also significant.

After being clipped in the box, Alli took responsibility from the spot as he sent Fraser Forster the wrong way, leaving Spurs in total command. It was very happy to the spurs as they are in the track now.

Pochettino expects the pair to seize their chance: "This is a great opportunity for Vincent and Sonny to play more in the starting 11". Which was the 79 head to head among Tottenham and Southampton.

"It's fantastic for them and for the club", he said. "It's important the team keep scoring and we keep winning games". "It's true it's a hard task for us to find in the English market the right profile or player to add". You feel comfortable telling other players what you need to tell them and they take it as a positive.

Spurs, then, might do well to consider more of Southampton's players in the summer ahead.

It means Alli has now played central midfield, left and centre of an attacking three, and up front for Pochettino, who believes the 20-year-old could excel anywhere on the pitch. Pochettino appreciates that trust and wants to reward it. Sadly, the Saints forward seems to lost his edge since a cruciate ligament injury.

Alli did not enjoy his best game on Sunday but proved again that he has the handy knack of popping up in risky areas in the style of former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

Signing more players from Southampton won't be easy. "You can not guess with him", he is quoted as saying by The Sun. "That's something everyone knows", admitted Pochettino.

Another good day for Spurs.
