Pochettino claims Tottenham cannot compete with Manchester clubs in transfer market

Bournemouth and Tottenham Hotspur will face each other in the Premier League this weekend.

It's a return to Wembley for Tottenham as Mauricio Pochettino's men try once more to claim a first league win at their temporary home.

Tottenham have had to find a balance between their ambition and the ongoing development on their new 61,000-seater stadium, with the new project is now estimated to cost the club £800m.

Tottenham sit five points adrift of both Manchester clubs, who are tied at the summit of the Premier League on 19 points after seven games.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is aware of how good Spurs are and have mentioned two players his team will have to stop - star striker Kane and key midfielder Eriksen.

Harry Kane has been absolutely smashing it. "I've obviously watched him closely in the last few weeks and his performances have been outstanding".

The comment did not go down well with Maurcio Pochettino, who retaliated by saying he did not call Guardiola's all-conquering Barcelona the "Messi team".

Still only 24 years of age, September 2017 was perhaps the most impressive of Kane's career thus far when taking into account not only his Premier League and Champions League exploits, but those for his country also.

One should not be surprised if the England worldwide scores once or twice against Bournemouth.
