Fernando Llorente on Why He Chose Tottenham Hotspur Over Chelsea FC

Winners and losers from Tottenham 0-0 Swansea City

Tottenham host Swansea City on Saturday looking to record their first win in the Premier League at temporary home Wembley. Many will have doubts about his pricetag and ability to replace Llorente, but it's important to consider that Llorente was arriving on the back of two very poor seasons with Juventus and Sevilla respectively.

His impressive form, affordable price (5.7m) and Spurs' home tie with Swansea prompted many to bring him into their side.

Pochettino, however, remains adamant that Wembley is not the problem.

'The truth is that Chelsea have been after me for a long time but at the end you know how this works'.

Likewise, Sanchez is only 21 but was involved in the Eredivisie title race with Ajax last season and played in May's Europa League final.

Spurs used the ground for Champions League matches last season and have won only two out of nine matches they have played there since March 2015.

The in-form Harry Kane, who had scored six goals in four matches, was unusually quiet, his best chance coming in the second half when he rattled Moussa Sissoko's cut-back against the crossbar.

The Welsh side rode their luck at times as Tottenham hit the woodwork and had three penalty appeals turned down, but the hosts had only themselves to blame for failing to kill off Paul Clement's men.

This is the late game on Saturday, kicking off at 5.30pm.

Pochettino was particularly disappointed with referee Mike Dean's decision not to award Aurier the foul.

"But I have a nice feeling about this group and I think it will get stronger". What is not clear [is] why Mike Dean [chose to] justify in front of our players that it was handball, but it was not handball. I'll take a punt on a 2-0 home win on Sunday.

Harry Kane's stunning start to September after a barren August has raised questions about whether he can fulfil his ambitions with Tottenham Hotspur, but manager Mauricio Pochettino says he does not need to move to join the greats. "We are showing that on our day we are hard to beat".

Clement replaced new midfielder Renato Sanches with Leroy Fer after 58 minutes in a game where Swansea's cautious approach was never going to see the Bayern Munich loan signing at his best.
