Mauricio Pochettino has given his press conference ahead of the match with Chelsea on Saturday.

Unsurprisingly there was plenty of talk about the loss to Monaco in the Champions League in midweek and the challenges caused when trying to get results in two high-quality competitions.

Pochettino revealed that the club would continue to play at Wembley if they qualify for the Europa League, as it would help the team get used to playing at the national stadium ahead of next season.

Also on the agenda was the tensions between the two clubs and Pochettino’s team selection for Saturday. Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies and Erik Lamela are still injured, while Danny Rose is suspended. The manager claimed that he had three options to play at left-back and spoke about the recent formation changes that he has made.

Watch the full press conference below.



  1. Offcourse we all know it’s a derby wether full squad o not it will be tough, surely Chelsea wil come out three points, at the moment Chelsea are too hot n untouchable.

  2. Just watched that…not very convincing…more like a Jumbo Jet trying to land on an aircraft carrier…lots of attempts but ultimately a wet experience for those onboard….

  3. Drop wanyama put dier back in midfield where he belongs
    Play wimmer more often and get a settled team and stop changing the players around
    Son needs to play every game for him to get better, stop buying these overpriced muppets and let the new players fight for right to be in the side of last season
    Sissikko is a mercenary and the youngest players need to be introduced slowly and consistently to gain experience,
    A few injuries and we are a shambles

  4. We were dismal not ready for CL I have doubts about Ponchettino as a manager after the floo and collapse of last season threw away PL TITLE finished behind arsenal and out of CL . We bought a DONKEY IN JANSSEN WE MUST SELL HIM IN JANUARY the rest of the front line are RUBBISH can’t create a chance or score a goal poor defending too many draws now we lose to Chelski !!!
    WHAT RUBBISH ARE WEwe must buy quality strikers and creative players. Struggling to get into Europa league which if we win means a CL PLACE but we are so RUBBISH can’t even do that. Time to change manager and players.
