His three strikes against the latter on Boxing Day saw him surpass Lionel Messi's 2017 goal tally, as well as break Newcastle legend Alan Shearer's Premier League record for goals in a calendar year.

Tottenham have also confirmed Victor Wanyama is back in full first-team training after recovering from a knee problem that has sidelined him since August, while Toby Alderweireld continues his recovery from a hamstring injury that will keep him sidelined until February.

Asked whether the Kenyan midfielder could face Swansea, Pochettino said: "Maybe, yes". If you make the exercise to see all my interviews or how we trusted in him from day one here, it's because we feel the potential.

"Now we have a lot of players that can be involved".

"I think Harry doesn't have a price". Reality is that Liverpool offers or pays £75million for Virgil van Dijk.

"We can talk about many things, but at the end it's talk for talk, because it's impossible to put a price on him".

"Yes, I think [Shearer] will know better than me because he's English and the mentality, he will know better about the English mentality".

But the Argentinian said: "We still don't decide anything about Cameron, Josh and Kyle Walker-Peters".

Pochettino, however, has said that there are doubts over his fitness ahead of the club's trip to the Liberty Stadium.

"Still, from day one when he started to play here at Tottenham and started to achieve all he achieved, I think not another young player his age achieved [that] - I think not Cristiano Ronaldo, not Lampard, not Rooney".

The Lilywhites hitman has been sensational for his club this season, scoring 24 goals in as many outings, and he finished this year as Europe's most prolific hitman, with 56 goals to his name.

Pochettino has cause for confidence as a new year beckons but, as he looks back over the last 12 months, one moment stands out. It is easy for me, but Daniel it would be different.
