Spain Striker: This Is Why I Snubbed Chelsea On Deadline Day

Tottenham Hotspur's English midfielder Dele Alli sinks to his knees at the final whistle in the English Premier League football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City at Wembley Stadium in London, on September 16, 2017. "We can not compare last season with this season". Almost, but not quite: Swansea enjoyed some luck when the England striker smashed the ball against the crossbar from close range in the second half and they were also indebted to Lukas Fabianski for a number of excellent saves.

Frank de Boer was this week fired by Crystal Palace after four games in charge, and recalling just the 10th league game of Pochettino's Spurs reign prompted the revelation.

Tottenham should have been awarded a penalty in the dying stages when Serge Aurier was brought down inside the area by Jordan Ayew, but Mike Dean instead bizarrely booked the full-back for handball. What is not clear is why Mike Dean [claimed] it was handball, it was not a handball.

Pochettino, who had an agent as a player but not as a manager, added: "It's important to find a trusted person that can help you to be better every day and help in all the business".

"He can cause a lot of problems for whoever they are against". He tried to justify by telling the players it was handball, it was handball, it was handball, shouting.

They host a Swansea side that are on the back of a 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle United, but Paul Clement could take heart from his team's away results this season. You always want them fit and healthy and ready to compete available for selection.

"All our guys defended brilliantly, that puts in good stead for the future to know that we can go to hard places and grind out a result".

Clement also made a decision to start Renato Sanches again but his loan signing from Bayern Munich was largely anonymous and substituted in the second half.

"It takes a bit of time to get up to speed".

Swansea failed to register a single shot on target for the third time in their five Premier League matches this season. "It is similar to France and Spain".
