Mauricio Pochettino: 'We are active in transfer market'

The right-back made 12 appearances in the Premier League last term, according to WhoScored.com, but was expected to make many more this season after the departure of Kyle Walker to Manchester City.

Trippier was later seen leaving the national stadium on crutches and wearing a protective boot around his right foot.

"He twisted his ankle", said Pochettino. "It's his ankle", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. It's true that he has crutches, but it's good. Now the feeling is good and we hope it is not a big issue. I can not guess because we need to wait until Monday, it's impossible to give you the correct information of the situation.

Ben Davies knows how it feels to be down the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino.

"Until we assess Kieran and do a scan then we need to wait".

Tottenham kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to newly-promoted Newcastle on 13 August. "But that [injury] does not change our idea. Our idea was, the same as before, to try to provide the team with more strength and try to sign a few players before the end of the transfer window", Pochettino told reporters. Be sure that we need to sign a few players.

Are congressional Republicans really cooling on Trump?
Even if he might not win too many converts right away, he could at least plant seeds of doubt that could grow over time. But Flake voted to confirm Robert Lighthizer, Trump's nominee to be the United States Trade Representative.

Tottenham are widely criticised for having a lack of depth in their squad, with players like Vincent Janssen and Moussa Sissoko barely having any input to the first-team despite having a lot of money spent on securing their arrivals last summer.

He was replaced by 20-year-old Kyle Walker-Peters before Christian Eriksen scored Tottenham's second goal in the 52nd minute against last season's Champions League finalists.

The Spurs boss conceded the ex-Burnley right-back was anxious at half time, but far more relaxed come the end of the game.

"This is going to be an opportunity for me to get some games and it's all about trying to do well in those games, then we will see what happens". Today he was out of the squad because he can't play. "We were a different team then and hopefully we've grown and we can show that next weekend".
