Kane pleased to see Tottenham triumph with hard work

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed claims his players are exhausted and are being over-worked.

"It's evident and it's true that we've not played well".

"We didn't train too much because we prioritised the rest and recovery and of course when he played and it was a tough game against Liverpool 90 minutes, to play again three days after again a big level team, again a very good player in front it wasn't the best and the risk was massive". But three? You'd better batten down the hatches, because this thing is about to get ugly. Knockaert's first touch took him through on goal, but he couldn't generate any power on his shot, which was easily saved.

Kane added: "I would 100 per cent rather have the focus than not have it".

With his penalty against Brighton earning him his third league goal of the season, Kane assessed his own performances over the previous few weeks, concluding that although he could've done better by own standards, his game against Brighton was the first of the season to truly please him. "The gaffer will be pleased and we can build on this".

The Lilywhites are preparing to travel to The Amex looking to bounce back to winning ways after they suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to Inter Milan in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday night.

Harry Kane grabbed the opener, as his well taken spot-kick handed Spurs the advantage after Glen Murray blocked Kieran Trippers free-kick with his arm.

"I've scored three goals this season, which is not bad".

'His best chance was at 1-0 and if he scores that and it's 1-1 then it's a different result, ' he said.

"But maybe [against Inter] because we didn't know [Matteo] Politano and [Mauro] Icardi, we didn't feel that pressure that we felt against Liverpool".

Trippier, Eric Dier, and Lucas Moura were all involved and Erik Lamela scored after being teed up by Danny Rose.

Not long after that, the referee blew his whistle for half-time with Spurs in control of the game, while the hosts needed to show much more in the second half to get back into game and not only being able to counter attack which is what Spurs only let them do. Anthony Knockaert's stoppage-time effort was a late consolation for the hosts.
