"Of course Son is a very important player for us, but I can not change the reality even if it is hurting us".

Mauricio Pochettino has called on Tottenham's fringe players to state their case for a place in his starting eleven, with his squad depleted by World Cup absences.

Patrik Schick had opened the scoring for Roma after just three minutes, firing into the far corner.

"It was the result of an injury, I did it first against Bournemouth and then Liverpool away in the League Cup".

"We're working hard trying to improve the squad", Pochettino said.

Spurs, who take on Roma in the International Champions Cup later today, face Newcastle in their Premier League opener on August 11, two days after the transfer window closes.

After the break, both sides sprung a surprise by keeping the same teams - and Roma showed they were hurting with a more concerted effort from the off. "Of course I'm happy when the striker scores".

"I can not talk and I don't want to talk because I think we need to be focused on trying to work hard and trying to arrive in the best way and in the best form for the first game of the season".

'If you look to the players that Chelsea and Liverpool have in the pre-season, especially these two teams, also Arsenal, if you compare, you see the difference of the situation, ' said Mourinho. It starts earlier than other leagues and other countries. There's nothing to do.

'I think we're all going to be in a similar condition. But I am not going to complain. That is the reality and we can not change it'.

Pochettino will lose another player after the opening league match against Newcastle as Heung-Min Son heads off to the Asian Games, and the Argentinian said: "I can not change the reality and I'm not going to cry".

"We have a lot of games so everyone will get the opportunity to play". We need to adapt. Yes, we're very strong in all positions. After that we made the decision [to have surgery], I didn't want to lose more time, so one day I told the club "I want to have the operation and that's it".
