"I try to have a team that don't play with the score on the board, we have a style of play", added Pellegrini.

A deal to take Pochettino the Spanish capital in mid-season could be tricky, especially since he only signed a new Tottenham deal in the summer, but Perez is seemingly willing to wait until next summer if Spurs chairman Daniel Levy plays hardball. The fans and the club are fantastic, the players as well, we've got a special bunch of boys and everybody gets on really well. But as players, you work with the gaffer, you want to have a good relationship with the manager and we all feel like we've got that here.

"I've had lots of plaudits about my team, over the last six years, so it's probably our first real tricky spell, so I'm not going to crying it in", the Clarets chief said.

The newspaper claims Eriksen is expected to double his salary should he sign after Alli's new contract saw the midfielder jump up to a salary of €170,000-a-week, making him Spurs' second biggest earner behind striker Harry Kane.

"We will see which players can repeat, some can be on the bench and some they need to rest".

The under-fire Grigor Dimitrov , meanwhile, beat Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets, winning the first 12-10 in the breaker. Tournament organisers in Paris announced on Wednesday that Nadal had pulled out due to an abdominal strain.

Manuel Pellegrini says that his side will be taking the EFL Cup seriously this year and Pochettino has quickly followed suit by suggesting something similar ahead of the derby.

"When we move into the stadium, after a few games or maybe after a lot of games, this will all be forgotten with the switch-over".

"I can't think of a better place for a player of my age and where I am in my career, to have such unbelievable support and coaching staff to help me to keep improving".

"The stadium and the training ground are great but you can have all that and still not improve as a player".

"I think we are in a period in the season that is different to when Christmas arrives and when it is a normal season that you can prepare yourself to compete during 10 months". "I want to keep improving and trying to become the best player I can".
