Pochettino: We still need a striker

The signing of Lyon forward Clinton N’Jie was confirmed before kick-off on Saturday morning but the Cameroon international is more comfortable playing wide in an attacking three, rather than as a centre forward.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he still needs another striker, despite the signing of N’Jie.

“N’Jie can play in different positions. Centrally? He can play there but I think we need another centre forward,” Pochettino said.

“We need to add some more players to the squad but don’t worry, I think today we deserved to win – it wasn’t a problem about the strikers.”

The draw means Tottenham have taken only one point from their opening two matches after losing at Manchester United on the opening day of the season.

“This is the beginning of the season,” Pochettino said.

  1. It all hinged on the subs today . Stoke got theirs spot on wheres spurs went backwards after Bentaleb and Lamela came on. Lamela fails to take anyone on and always looks for easy way with no incisive runs or shots, i cannot see what he brings to the team!!
