Spurs' Mauricio Pochettino: We're going to try to sign players in January

Nonetheless, Pochettino does not believe that a lack of recruitment is a recipe for success. West Ham's revival was ended in their defeat by Brighton, but we know now what they are capable of and I think they are solid enough to hold Spurs.

"I think we are improving 100 per cent".

"Daniel Levy explained that the club had based the summer window on certain assumptions that some players might be leaving and certain targets would be available", the minutes read. When we started the season with three games that we won and we were up at the top of the table people were talking in a different way, "Oh how clever are Tottenham because they keep all the squad from last season".

Levy said Pochettino did not want to sign anyone for the sake of it and felt he had sufficient numbers.

"I was injured a lot and now I'm feeling good and enjoying the moment".

"We need as a club in January to try to refresh the squad to move the club on".

"If you ask me, I'm happy, I'm happy with the result but I think you can not play with the destiny and you need to do the things properly".

"It was hard to achieve the player we needed", Pochettino said.

Lamela marked his first Premier League start of the season with his fifth goal of the campaign, the Argentinian unmarked as he headed in Moussa Sissoko's cross.

"He is a very professional player and has been a big part of the squad", Pochettino added. "There are a lot of games ahead and it's so important to have almost all the squad fit to compete and play and to give options to rotate and share the games", Pochettino added.

"But if you can not achieve what you need or want, then to sign because you need to make happy people or act like all the clubs, I think that's not common sense". Pochettino welcomed the return of his key players ahead of an important run of fixtures including games against Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League and Premier League champions Manchester City later this month.

"We believe in him [Lamela], trust in him".

Spurs and the Hammers are notorious rivals and have clashed on many occasions through the years, with no contest between the two seemingly an easy ride for either side, and this one followed that path.
