Spurs set club record with seven-goal Tranmere trashing


The 26-year-old's contract ends in 2020, with a new deal yet to be agreed.

Eriksen has been in excellent form for Spurs this season, scoring six and assisting nine goals in 25 matches, but Pochettino was coy when asked about his future on Thursday. Football is about interests that as managers we sometimes can not manage.

"It would be fantastic if he committed to the club for a long time". Different parties have interests. "Then it is about negotiating, talking, and seeing what the different parties want". "If not, it's his right to do what he wants to do".

Tottenham have not won a major trophy since claiming the League Cup in 2008, and is often levelled as an argument against Pochettino's success at Spurs.

No player in Tranmere Rovers white could have swirled the ball into the top corner like Serge Aurier did for the Spurs opener, and no League Two attacker could have strolled past an entire backline like Heung-Min Son did for their second.

There were as many as five academy graduates on the pitch at the end of the game and it is a testament to Pochettino's work with youngsters.

London-based clubs are having problems getting their star players to renew their contracts amid the threat of more appetizing offers from Europe's top sides.

"It will show we are in a good position, and of course it's going to be good for our egos".

"When you add that you need to finish your facilities, like the training ground or the new stadium, you add hard things". I think I was sacked a few years ago.

"But that doesn't mean that we are not focused on trying to win against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup or in the FA Cup".
