Premier League - Follow the Football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham live with Eurosport.

"I don't believe there will be too much movement because we cannot sign [replacements], but different individual things can happen", Pochettino said.

Both players were absent for last weekend's 2-1 victory at Newcastle United, but Mauricio Pochettino has brought them back in and changed his system.

"In some part of the defensive work, you don't have to be so talented, (but) you must be clever, organised, and show great decision-making off the ball".

"I feel so sorry for myself first of all, for our fans, the players, everyone, and of course for our chairman".

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino on stadium delay: "Three stadiums in one season would be too much, we might have to find a way to play at Wembley, if that's the day after the National Football League, maybe the pitch is not in the best condition but we have to find a way". Somebody told me the Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri, had said they need a minimum of three months to build their team. In this process we need time. Some players maybe want to move but don't have an offer.

"I want to say thank you and apologise". I promise I am going to fix it if someone is not happy to be here for the next five months until the transfer window opens again. Pochettino believes that he needs to stick with the club at the times adversity.

"It's the only way we can pay all the effort they are doing and they are going to do for the club".

Pochettino and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy have been coming under fire as of late for failing to sign a single player during the summer transfer window.

While Pochettino confirmed N'Koudou may get the chance to play more games and develop himself somewhere else, he also perceives the lack of new additions has boosted the confidence of his current group.

"They haven't had that, but what they do have, is what I would consider a completely different Kieran Trippier, a different version of Kieran Trippier, a Kieran Trippier who was a very good player".
