A selection of the latest stories surrounding Tottenham Hotspur in the media this Monday evening.

Tottenham had Harry Kane to thank once again yesterday as he scored the equalising goal in their 2-2 draw with West Ham United in the dying seconds of yesterday's Premier League encounter.

Kane won the penalty, and after watch Adrian save it in the West Ham goal, he followed up the rebound to salvage a point for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The in form forward has admitted they were disappointed with how things went yesterday, telling the club's official website: “I think we were disappointed, especially in the first half, that we couldn’t get ourselves going. We kept giving the ball away cheaply but even when we went 2-0 down we never gave up.

“Everyone dug deep when we had to and obviously we’ve come out with a point, which could be a very important one at the end of the season.”

Midfielder Nabil Bentaleb seems confident the squad can handle the challenges ahead with the side facing a trip to Florence in the Europa League on Thursday before they face Chelsea in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

Spurs need to chase the game a little in Italy given the Serie A side managed to score a crucial away goal in a 1-1 draw.

Bentaleb told the London Evening Standard: “We have big chances in both competitions. We have a large squad, we have the qualities to play well in this competition and I think we want to prove that."

Tottenham are to give treatment to Dele Alli after he sustained an ankle injury playing for MK Dons according to the BBC.

The 18-year-old midfielder joined Spurs in January before being loaned back to the League One club.
