Mauricio Pochettino unconcerned about Tottenham's transfer activity with no deals close

Tottenham will be without midfielder Harry Winks for Saturday's Premier League game at home to Everton.

As much as it sells itself as the biggest and most exciting league in the world, the Premier League has still to find a way to keep its biggest stars from the clutches of La Liga's superpowers.

Pochettino's honesty was admirable, and unusual, in the modern game, with the Argentinean admitting that, at some point in the near future, Spurs must start to deliver on and off the pitch and prove that their ambition matches that of their leading players.

The South Korean is Tottenham's second highest scorer this season with 10 goals and has proven to be a key figure in Mauricio Pochettino's first team line-up. Fans must be wondering where their team would be without Harry Kane though who has managed to bag 18 times already this campaign and now tops the goalscoring list.

Spurs take on the Toffees under the arch looking to make it back-to-back victories at the national stadium after defeating AFC Wimbledon 3-0 last Sunday in the third round of the FA Cup.

Sam Allardyce's side are winless in five matches and have lost three games in a row in all competitions. It is also four weeks without a win for the Toffees and they'll be well aware of how hard it will be to get anything from Wembley on Saturday evening.

Kane claimed the prize ahead of seven other nominees - Chelsea's Marcos Alonso, West Ham United's Marko Arnautovic, Liverpool duo Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, Jesse Lingard of Manchester United, Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez and Manchester City's Nicolas Otamendi.

Lennon was past year diagnosed with a stress-related illness and received treatment with the Priory Group before returning to play for Everton at the start of the season. The arrival of £27 million Turkey forward Cenk Tosun will no doubt bolster their attacking options and could give the Tottenham defence cause for concern.

Everton will still be without Ramiro Fuses Mori, Idrissa Gueye, Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman. They are in 5th position midway through the season in which they were expected to actually challenge for the title. In the end, we've signed a few.
