Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Attempt four over Schneiderlin, Pochettino on killer instinct needed

White Hart Lane 3

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

The Mirror claims Tottenham Hotspur will go back to Southampton with a new offer for Morgan Schneiderlin this winter.

The Frenchman was strongly linked with Spurs during the summer window but the Saints rightly stood firm and insisted that he wasn’t for sale.

Any offer would be the fourth attempt Spurs have made a move for the player.

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has suggested the side need to be deadlier in front of goal.

Spurs couldn’t get over the line at the weekend against Sunderland, only securing a 2-2 draw.

“The most frustrating thing of the afternoon is that we weren't rewarded for our performance - We've got to finish teams off when we've got them on the ropes. We didn't do that today,” said the forward.

His comments have been echoed by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The boss was left frustrated by his side’s inability to defend a lead against the Black Cats.

“We needed to kill the game off. We scored two goals away from home, but we had to be more solid,” said the Argentine.
