Sissoko promises to prove real worth to Tottenham

Spurs were excellent across the team, with record signing Sanchez illustrating why Spurs were happy to spend north of £38m, showing the strength and ability needed in Premier League.

"I had some chances but didn't score". Look at the goals he scored the last years!

Impressively 80 of his 101 goals have come in the Premier League in just 116 appearances.

But that is a stat that must change if they are to make it out of their Champions League group which also features Wednesday's opponents Borussia Dortmund along with reigning European champions Real Madrid and Apoel Nicosia.

Spurs reached the quarter-finals on their first foray into the Champions League, seven years ago, but last season's experience under Pochettino ended in failure with Spurs unable to emerge from a group containing Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen.

Sissoko has been reunited with his former Toulouse team-mate Serge Aurier, who joined Spurs on deadline day last month, and the France worldwide said of the right-back: "Everyone knows him because he played for Paris Saint-Germain and he's played some massive games in the Champions League as well.

I was startled to hear Koeman say his team were 'too nice" in the 3-0 defeat by Tottenham, ' Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.

"We have got to test ourselves against these teams", he said. And if you were surprised to see Sissoko actually be useful for Tottenham, the midfielder has a message for you: get used to it, because things are "totally different" this season.

"We have to go and perform". We have got to prove that we are at that level. Lamela, who has not played since October past year, is now in "an advanced stage of his rehabilitation", according to his manager and is expected to return to full training next month.

"If we can get through this group, it would be a big statement for the club". Real Madrid and Dortmund are two of the biggest clubs in Europe.
