Pochettino admits his job with 'fragile' Spurs on line

The Spurs have won just three of their opening 12 games in all competitions this season

Michael Owen states his prediction for Tottenham v Red Star Belgrade

Spurs have only won three of their nine Premier League games so far and are in seventh place after some patchy performances, five points off the top four.

As unflattering as their own recent run has been, Tottenham Hotspur's latest Champions League group-stage opponents Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade) have a sorry record on English soil.

The fans, too, were back on side following reports that Tottenham had struggling to sell-out for this match after being given the stadium's full 62,062 allocation.

Dele Alli, recalled to the starting line-up for the past couple of matches, said Tottenham's players remain "1000 per cent" behind Pochettino.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has looked world-weary this season after the high of taking Tottenham to last season's Champions League final. "We have got a very tough game on Sunday so I hope we can take momentum into that".

Red Star have won just one of their 10 UEFA European away games in visits to English shores - the last time nearly half a century ago against Liverpool at the beginning November 1973, when they had a more premier reputation in Europe.

Lamela beat Borjan with a rising shot on the turn and Kane competed the rout with a clinical finish.

Ajax and Chelsea have similar philosophies - Ten Hag
He admits that in previous years Chelsea would have started out as favourites because of the experience they had in the squad. Quincy Promes has scored in both and the Dutch internationalist is 13/5 ( Betfair ) to make it three in a row.


"We need to build that confidence of course".

This was Tottenham's biggest win in a major European competition (excluding qualifiers) since beating Anorthosis Famagusta 6-1 in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup. "We did an incredible job, an wonderful performance and a big three points for us. Liverpool is a tough game coming up, obviously they have started the season fantastic, but hopefully we can win that game".

"So it's great for the confidence and tomorrow a day off because we scored five goals".

"You try to find a way to spark the team, it always happens in football, things you can not explain".

"There are many of our fans, some of them live in this country, in London, or maybe surrounding countries and for them Red Star is a very important club", Milojevic said.

He told The Evening Standard: "Rather than hiding, we need to relish these games, roll our sleeves up, go for it and try to get back to winning ways. It is so hard and complex to explain". The most important thing is to be strong with your principles and give confidence to the team. If you don't perform as people expect it's normal. Just like at Liverpool (in October 2018), we had a ban.
