​Pochettino refuses to say whether Janssen in frame to lead Tottenham line

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is coy on whether Vincent Janssen will lead Tottenham's line against Middlesbrough this weekend in the absence of the injured Harry Kane.

"We'll see what happens tomorrow. It's a great opportunity for him [Janssen] to start tomorrow, maybe, and help the team," Pochettino told his pre-match news conference.

"It's not only his responsibility now, it's always a team responsibility. He needs to feel free to play, to try to help the team now.

"It's a big opportunity for him to show his skill and he needs to feel free to play," he added.
