Speaking to Sky Sports at today's Premier League launch Pochettino reiterated his aim to only add players to his squad who can challenge his first XI.
All the noises out of the club have been rather muted in truth, with the club yet to make a single addition to their squad all summer long.
The left back signed a £65,000 a week deal last September and feels he has "one last" big contract in his career at 27-years-old - but Sportsmail's Carragher mirrored the words used by Rose upon learning some signings made under Daniel Levy.
Money no object for Man City, but Guardiola must deliver
Clyne is set to miss the start of the season through injury, so Alexander-Arnold has another chance to make a mark. I'm a type of player with a lot of experience. "They told me this is a really big club with a nice history".
"When you see our philosophy and the way we work, it's so exciting".
"I'm really happy that the dream came true".
USA right-back DeAndre Yedlin will miss Spurs' visit with a hamstring problem picked up in pre-season.
Jacob Murphy, Florian Lejeune and Javier Manquillo are all available for the Newcastle boss.
Eclipse offers rare opportunity to study sun, atmosphere, animals
The total eclipse will only be visible in a narrow 67-mile stretch of the country running from OR to SC . This only happens about every 6 months, such as August 2017 when the moon is on the line of nodes.
But Erik Lamela, Danny Rose, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Kieran Trippier are all ruled out due to injury. He has had slow starts in the last two seasons, not scoring till September.
Benitez has not lost any of his previous eight Premier League home games as a manager against Spurs (W5 D3 L0). Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham have turned him into the world class player that he is. Personally, the standout moment for me is the emergence and maturing of Harry Kane into one of the best strikers around. It's a big challenge for us to make Tottenham a winning team and build a strong mentality to challenge the likes of United and City, who are spending a lot to create a winning team.
What are reasonable expectations for Tottenham Hotspur in 2017-18, in the Premier League, Champions League, and domestic cups?
Building his team around England stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli and, with Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Son Heung-Min all influential in their own right, Pochettino has assembled a group capable of beating any side in the country on their day. Add to that the lack of activity in the transfer market compared to that of their rivals and it could be a hard season for Tottenham. They haven't spent enough and if it wasn't for the fans I'd tip them to go down.

Rooney also played in both legs of the Europa League third qualifying round against Slovakian side MFK Ruzomberok. He said: "I admit it [his fee] is a very important amount, but I have personality to play quietly and go my way".
