Tottenham's Belgium worldwide Mousa Dembele has also started training after shaking off a thigh problem while England midfielder Dele Alli, who has been suffering with a hamstring problem, is expected to be back next week.

"It [the break] was a good time for us because we are going to recover a few players, like Christian and Mousa Dembele", Pochettino told a news conference.

Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen all remain out. "There are a lot of games ahead, and it's so important to have almost all the squad fit to compete and play and to give options".

"Lamela was good, [which is] fantastic for him and his belief, and it was three very important points ahead of a tough period we have".

Many fans feel he is playing the best football of his Spurs career and, although Pochettino is happy, he wants to see him sustain his form.

It was one of several notable moments from the hard-working Sissoko, and Pochettino was upbeat about Spurs fans starting to go easier on him following a hard start to life at the club. He is my boss, he is the owner of the club.
