Tottenham boss highlights the invaluable quality Son and Njie now give Spurs

The Tottenham Hotspur head coach has been discussing the north London club's summer signings.

Mauricio Pochettino says he is pleased with the impact summer signings Heung-Min Son and Clinton Njie have made at White Hart Lane, according to the Sunday People.

Indeed, the Tottenham boss says he and his staff are 'happy' with the new recruits, whom he thinks have looked fresh since moving to north London.

And Pochettino has also highlighted the invaluable quality they have now given Spurs - a deeper squad.

The Tottenham boss is quoted as telling reporters: "I think after that it will be good because Clinton Njie and Heung-Min Son are fresh and we are happy with them. Our squad now is deeper.

"It’s a really tough week, this is true. The clubs we play against, Arsenal in the derby and Manchester City, these are big clubs but it is not a problem in that we are convinced we can do well."

Of course, Tottenham's failure to sign a new out-and-out striker gives the north London side a significant disadvantage when it comes to strength in depth.

Talk of Son being used as a no.9, though, appears to be genuine as opposed to merely a cover up for not buying an outright centre-forward.

The 23-year-old scored twice while playing up front against Qarabag on Thursday night, although he will have to produce against stronger opposition when it comes to the Premier League.

Njie, meanwhile, will no doubt be relishing the opportunity to start in the capital soon, having come on against Qarabag in the Europa League.
