Wenger doubts Tottenham can fill Wembley this season

Jose Mourinho gives his thoughts on Danny Rose's comments

Their chairmen Daniel Levy would rather invest his money in building out the infrastructure of the club, including Tottenham's new 61,000-seater stadium in north London and their state of the art training facilities for the first team and the youth academy. Danny Rose, meanwhile, has caused chaos before a ball has even been kicked with his comments on his future.

With Erik Lamela still working his way back to full fitness following a long-term hip problem we could see Moussa Sissoko make a rare start against his former club this weekend. If at all in Rose's case.

It is Trippier's injury that most shows how Tottenham have left themselves exposed.

"On Kane's rivals, Lineker added: "[Manchester City's Sergio] Aguero is always going to [score goals] and [Romelu] Lukaku will have to be close if Manchester United are to be successful.

Pochettino is happy to draw a line under the controversy but pointed to the achievements of Rose' England colleagues Eric Dier and Dele Alli to underline the folly of the full-back's stance. For all the commentary that Tottenham are pursuing a "different way", with a noble emphasis on continuity, this now looks to be willful blindness towards a lack of decisive action. Spurs may be in a club of one soon, an unwanted position.

Tottenham are the only side from the Premier League's top six last season who have not made additions in the transfer market but Pochettino remains confident of the capabilities of a team who stormed to a second-place finish last time around.

"It's a big challenge for us", the Argentine told TalkSport on Wednesday. But again, a lot depends on the next three weeks and what happens during the rest of the transfer window.

Wenger believes any Spurs anxiety about playing at the ground is simply psychological but he does feel they will struggle to generate capacity crowds of 90,000 fans throughout the coming campaign. Five to be precise.

"With Arsenal, I don't see them being much stronger than they were last season". And yet Spurs seem willing to keep faith with the French worldwide, having reportedly turned down offers for him.

Spurs, despite an indifferent week, should head to Newcastle with confidence after beating Juventus 2-0 last Saturday. Ben Davies will start the match against Newcastle.

He won the Golden Boot three times in his career - a feat bettered only by Thierry Henry and Jimmy Greaves since the beginning of the 20th century.
