Spurs' hopes of winning last season's league title all but ended after a 1-0 loss to West Ham at the London Stadium in May, but Pochettino insisted that they will not be out for revenge tonight.
It was Tottenham's third away win of the campaign, a record that stands in sharp contrast to their problems at home, where they have collected just two points from their opening three games at Wembley.
"It's such a busy schedule that we have, we play every two-three days and then all are away for worldwide break".
"The best compliment I can give him is put it like this - we played with three centre-backs and they had a really good game", said Bilic.
"I think the cat is out of the bag now, everyone knows how much the top players are on". He is looking forward to staying here a long time. And of course Tim has the right to speak about Tottenham and Harry. The only question is whether the Argentine could have done more to shut up shop and guard against West Ham's second goal after Aurier had been sent off.
"He is the only English player", Pochettino added.
"He is a player who I have told you many, many times that, for me, he is one of the geniuses that I have met in football". This doesn't surprise me.
"We feel very proud of his last three seasons with us because I think he achieved many, many more things than he expected". The first yellow he didn't deserve.
"He provides very good energy to the team - he won the World Cup, he's played for some of the biggest clubs in the world".
Dembele, who turned 30 in July, has a longstanding issue with the top of his left foot and he has said he will always play with some pain, despite going under the knife in May.
And after scoring the victor in Tuesday's 1-0 EFL Cup win over Barnsley, Alli was shown celebrating by cupping his ears, an act which some interpreted as a show of petulance towards demanding Spurs fans.
Foyth, signed from Argentina's Estudiantes, is seen as one for the future, while Llorente is still finding sharpness after joining Spurs on the last day of the transfer window and missing pre-season with an arm injury.
"It was only a joke with one fan in the stands".
