Mauricio Pochettino has warned Toby Alderweireld his World Cup ambitions will have no bearing on his Tottenham spot this season.

Antonio Conte's side doesn't have much time left to cover this deficit and they must start this Sunday. However, triggering that option would also include a release clause which could see him leave for the aforementioned £25m, well under market value.

Choosing between Courtois and Tottenham stopper Hugo Lloris proved a real tough decision, but the Belgian gets the nod.

Alderweireld has not featured in the Premier League since October because of a hamstring injury, but the centre-half played twice for Belgium during the global break.

Pochettino is unmoved by potential World Cup heartbreak.

The two London giants clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday (4pm) with Tottenham boasting the better domestic season. Sánchez arrived in a club record £42m deal from Ajax last summer and it is hard to overstate how highly the manager rates the 21-year-old.

"Every single player needs to show in training that they are better than their team-mate and then I pick".

Chelsea are reportedly set to intensify their efforts to land Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld in the coming months, as they are desperate to beat Barcelona and Manchester United to his signature.

Expect two hard-working, powerful Spurs players in the centre of the pitch - Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama is the obvious combination, but Eric Dier could be deployed there too.

"I always think the Spurs and Chelsea games when Conte and Pochettino are in charge are always the most intense games in English football because you have two managers who like their teams to play at full throttle from the first whistle". Like everyone. It's the same situation with different players, like Moussa Sissoko.

"I have an awesome relationship with Roberto". I understand his comment. Spurs are the better side, and I'm happy to back them at a generous [3.3]. Tottenham Hotspur, on their part, have one such bogey place in Stamford Bridge where they haven't picked up a win since February 1990.

He wouldn't play every single game, but the North Londoners will have a lot of games again next season and signing someone of Moutinho's talent, experience and lack of transfer fee is simply a no-brainer.
