“I have spoken that we may get one or two,” said Pochettino on Saturday evening, as quoted by the BBC Sport live blog (5.10pm). “We are very open, it is not easy to bring in players who can help us but we are trying.”
The words of the manager will be of encouragement to supporters, who will have noted the lack of experience of the substitutes at Goodison Park.
Rookies Josh Onomah, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Harry Winks were all on the bench even though they have minimal first-team experience.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club hope to agree three new deals as a fourth is already in place.
