DANNY ROSE expects to stay at Tottenham after thanking Mauricio Pochettino for the "massive shock" of recalling him for the victory over Manchester United.

"We all have to start again trying to impress him and that's great".

Despite failing to sign a new player in the recent transfer window, Spurs have made a flawless start to the new season, winning their opening three Premier League games, with their most-recent being a 3-0 win against Manchester United, with Rose admitting he was surprised we he found out he'd be starting.

With the chance to go up against World Cup victor Paul Pogba once again, as well as Brazilian pair Fred and Andreas Pereira, the 29-year-old added: "We've had some great matches already this season in the Europa League".

"Me and the manager have had a conversation over the phone, as well as two one-hour meetings over the last couple of weeks", he said.

"We're both aware of the situation".

'He still trusts and believes in me, to put me into such a massive game where he didn't need to change anything. I came from a very good season, I was second top scorer of the team, only behind Cavani.

"I'm good. I'm not listening to the speculation about my future".

"It was incredible", he added.

Dyche said: "My respect for people like Jose is because I am a young manager, learning the game, and these people have done enormous amounts in the game, for the game".

Publicly, United continued to back Mourinho on Tuesday and there is little chance of him walking away from a £15million-a-year contract.Woodward does not want to make a third change in less than four-and-a-half years but will come under enormous pressure if United suffer a third straight defeat on Sunday.

"At the final whistle as well, the way they were clapping the team was I think really respectful and really nice for us as players to receive after a disappointing result". I'm the only manager to win in Italy, Spain and England.

"We've played in the same sort of shape with the same sort of players as we did a year ago, there haven't been many changes, so we know what we're good at, we just haven't done it yet". "I did not think twice".

However, with the Red Devils already six points off the pace and Mourinho cutting a forlorn figure after not being backed in the transfer market over the summer, it remains to be seen what will happen.

"I had a very poor first half but I felt I got better in the second half".
