Spurs' Mauricio Pochettino: We're going to try to sign players in January

It was one of several notable moments from the hard-working Sissoko, and Pochettino was upbeat about Spurs fans starting to go easier on him following a hard start to life at the club.

"Let's say I have £1, you have £10, the next person has £100, the next £1,000".

"I think we were very unlucky not to take something from Brighton, but if you don't score the chances you have you normally lose the game".

"Everyone knows he has a strong mentality and that's why he's improved a lot and you can see he's so important for us and we always knew this".

"We tried to sign but we couldn't achieve what we needed or what we wanted. But I need to remind everyone that this is our best start after eight games, it is the best start in the Premier League for Tottenham". We showed that we don't care and we are not politicians or populists.

The Argentine has hit form this season, scoring five goals in seven games, and scored the solitary goal in Tottenham's win over local rivals West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Four 49ers players to watch Sunday vs. Rams
Ultimately, the Rams will continue to monitor the situation as the week rolls along to determine Kupp's status for Sunday's game. The Rams are first in yards rushing at 154.3 yards per game, sixth in passing at 310 and third in scoring at 32.7 points a game.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "We have one more point than last season and I am not happy about that because we are fifth in the table and the ambition is to be on the top". They had a four-match winless streak in 2015-16 and a seven-match winless run in 2016-17, starting on October 15.

Five minutes before the end, West Ham thought it snatched an equalizer when substitute Javier Hernandez found the net but Arnautovic was offside as he played in the Mexican.

Pochettino has stated that this is his toughest season at Spurs, largely due to the late return of key figures after the World Cup - but he hopes the challenges his players have been facing will help them to improve their fortunes at this stage of the campaign.

"Maybe it's a coincidence, or maybe it's because we are geniuses".

"I don't want to say that it's not doing things properly to not sign, but we need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club".

"Daniel Levy explained that the club had based the summer window on certain assumptions that some players might be leaving and certain targets would be available", the minutes read.
