Tottenham Hotspur are still involved in all four competitions so far despite suffering a whole host of injuries this season.

Additionally, the team has had to deal with several setbacks as many players have hardly had a pre-season due to their involvement at last summer’s World Cup coupled with the fact that the club also failed to add any new additions to the squad.

Further, there has been some negativity, particularly at the start of the season, owing to the delay in their move to the new 62,062 capacity stadium.

Despite these setbacks, Pochettino’s men have gone about their business in a professional manner and haven’t let themselves become affected by the surrounding circumstances.

Tottenham are back in action this evening when they travel to Chelsea for the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, but face a tough task with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Heung-min Son all unavailable.

Pochettino said that in his eyes the players are already heroes due to what they have been able to achieve so far this season.

Speaking during the pre-match press conference, the Argentine told Football.London, “Look, different clubs, I was talking before I saw Liverpool is now in Dubai and all the pundits say Liverpool have the best squad with Manchester City.”

“We are still involved in four competitions, what happens tomorrow and what happens Sunday I am still happy with my squad. I think to arrive in that situation after a very difficult summer when you assess everything that happened in the last seven months I think our players are heroes. Of course, I am going to feel proud tomorrow whatever happens.”
