From the resulting corner, Kieran Tripper drove wide to ensure that Spurs has now failed to score a first half goal in all three of their home league games this season.

The Argentine did reveal he would help Alli if the midfielder required his service: "If he would ask me, sure I would advise him".

"I have my father and my agent who are sorting out that kind of thing".

Alli's emergence has played a major role in Tottenham putting forward title challenges in the last two campaigns and the latest report suggests that the North London side want to tie him down to a new contract.

Manchester City and Chelsea have both been strongly linked with Alderweireld as speculation over his long-term future at Spurs rumbles on.

Mauricio Pochettino insists he is not anxious about Tottenham's struggles at Wembley despite them being held to a goalless draw by Swansea.

Lots of people connected with Tottenham Hotspur had bad days, but the one person who came out of Saturday's 0-0 draw with Swansea looking the worst was probably match official Mike Dean.

The Lilywhites head into this weekend's round of fixtures in fifth place in the Premier League table after four games.

After three home games, Spurs' record at home is already worse than what they accomplished through 19 games at White Hart Lane last season.

"Players must show hunger and never lose their hunger", Pochettino said.

Victor Wanyama is also still missing due to a knee injury while Erik Lamela is still working his way back to full fitness following 11 months on the sidelines with a hip injury.

"I am a coach not a doctor", Pochettino said. However, Sanches was very disappointing in his debut with Swansea after he joined the club on loan from Bayern.

The Swans are yet to concede away from home, drawing 0-0 with Southampton before a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace, and in truth they seldom looked like letting Spurs in here thanks to an organised, disciplined display.
