Pochettino: Kane Does Not Need Trophies To Prove His Worth

Davies hopes Tottenham's win over Dortmund at Wembley will mark a change in fortune for the club, who have struggled at the ground while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

Llorente joins Harry Kane in what has become a lethal Tottenham team, with a strong depth to it, while over in west London Conte will now rely on the 23-year-old Belgian Michy Batshuayi when Morata is rested. Harry Kane slammed a shot against the bar after Lukasz Fabianski had denied Son Heung-min, while Dele Alli should have done better with a header soon after.

Lawrenson wrote in his column for BBC Sport: "The way Tottenham dismantled Everton last week was very impressive".

"After seeing the Swans beat Crystal Palace, I was not too anxious about Paul Clement's side getting dragged into the relegation battle this season - but any more complete non-performances like that would be a real cause for concern".

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said they were "unlucky" not to beat Swansea on Saturday after the Welsh side held them to a goalless draw.

The former Swansea City striker came off the bench for the final couple of minutes at Wembley to help Spurs see the game out. Serge Aurier could have earned a late penalty when he went down under the slightest of clips from Jordan Ayew, while Martin Olsson was twice fortunate not to concede a spot-kick, once after blocking Toby Alderweireld and then for touching a loose ball with his hand.

"I can find many other goals that were fantastic but, for me, goals are related to emotion, to the period you are living in".

At the time of the Aston Villa game, Kane was Spurs' third-choice striker behind Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor, but the Englishman was rewarded for his job-saving goal by starting every league game that followed scoring another 20 goals to lift the club to sixth.

"It stopped a little bit that negativity about Wembley". "I said to be confident in your defending and if you do that, and are nice and compact, you can get a result here". They have done very well in the last few years and I think I fit very well with this project.

Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko both sent decent long-range attempts over the bar, as Davinson Sanchez continued to impress in Tottenham's back three, which limited Swansea to just one half-chance through ex-Spurs man Tom Carroll.
