WATCH: Mauricio Pochettino pre match press conference ahead of Leicester

Mauricio Pochettino has spoken of Tottenham’s need to get back to winning ways after their recent home draw against West Brom.

He started by telling the media that Erik Lamela is in contention for the game against Leicester after returning to training and declaring himself available for selection, while Danny Rose will return to the squad after being left out of recent games. Rose has been linked with a move to Manchester United, and his exclusion has only added fuel to that speculation.

The Argentine also left the door open for Moussa Dembele to return to the squad after his recent absence.

Pochettino conceded that, while Spurs have the same amount of points as this stage last season, it will be difficult for team to win the Premier League title following the phenomenal start to the season by Manchester City.

He is however happy with the teams overall progression, especially in the Champions League and considering the temporary move away from White Hart Lane.
