Tottenham will look to young stars instead of dipping into transfer market, insists Pochettino

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed he is ready to put faith in the club’s young stars rather than delve into the January transfer window.The Argentine has a growing reputation of a willingness to give younger players a chance in the first team.He has been richly rewarded with the emergence of striker Harry Kane this season, who has proved youth can deliver when it matters with 17 goals in 27 games this term.Playmaker Christian Eriksen has also become a key player at White Hart Lane since signing from Ajax two summers ago, with the 22-year-old netting the winning goal in Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Sunderland.And the Spurs boss insists he is in no rush to add to his “strong side” over January.“I am very focused on my players in our squad, we have a strong side,” Pochettino said.“It is important to recognise the players that have come through the club’s academy.“We have some real talent and they are starting to knock on my door and this is important for our squad.”last_img read more

In Saturday’s season-opening tilt with the Southeastern Louisiana Lions, two notable starters were missing from the fold.It was reported in the pre-game that both defensive end Jordan Brailford and wide receiver Chris Lacy would not (and did not) play Saturday due to injuries. According to the report from Oklahoma State insider Robert Allen, Brailford was held out due to a leg injury and did not suit up, while Chris Lacy was held out as a precaution due to a knee injury.In Mike Gundy’s press conference following the game, he did state that he expects both guys to be back in practice this week. Both injuries seem to have held them out on a precautionary basis, but it will be something to keep an eye on this week as they hopefully eye a return to the field.Chris Lacy back on the #okstate depth chart this week, backing up Washington. DE Jordan Brailford listed as an “or” with Cole Walterscheid.— Nathan Ruiz (@NathanSRuiz) September 5, 2016Other depth chart notes this week:• Larry Williams starting at RG (which actually happened on Saturday) and Jesse Robinson as the new backup LG• Darius Curry starting at nickel• Michael Wilson was taken off the two deep at center and moved to RT• DeQuinton Osborne slides into the No. 2 DT slot behind Vincent Taylor and Sugar Loaf Daniels moves to No. 3• Kevin Henry was added as the No. 3 WLB with the announcement that Josh Mabin is retiring• Jeff Carr was added as the No. 3 KR• Max Allan was added as the No. 3 PKFive possible starters listed at running back for #okstate again— Dekota Gregory (@dekotagregory) September 5, 2016last_img read more
