Tottenham morning news: Eriksen appeals for time to adapt; Spurs target striker

Tottenham Hotspur Action

We bring you the latest news from Tottenham Hotspur this morning.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen admits that there are a number of players in the squad still finding their way. 

Spurs came from behind to beat Hull City yesterday, but still looked off the pace in the match and Eriksen has revealed that this is because the players are still adapting to Mauricio Pochettino's methods. 

“A lot of players still need to find our way, myself included," he told the London Evening Standard. "We have some good chances and we play well sometimes, and we can take confidence with us from this game. We still have to work hard and improve a lot of things.”

According to a report in London24, Spurs have targeted Jackson Martinez to solve their goalscoring problems.

The Lilywhites are thought to be on the hunt for a striker in January and it seems the Porto front-man could be at the top of their wishlist. 

Finally, Pochettino insists that Gaston Ramirez's controversial red card had no impact on Spurs' match against Hull this weekend.

Ramirez was sent off after kicking out at Jan Vertonghen while the Tigers were in front, but Pochettino feels that Spurs would have completed the comeback, even if the two sides had the same number of players on the pitch. 

"I think it did not have a big impact. In the second half our attacking game was better than Hull's. I'm sure in the end it would have been the same result," he is quoted as saying by Sports Mole.
