As a one-club man who played in 14 consecutive Premier League seasons, former Tottenham captain Ledley King is a legend at White Hart Lane. But while King did lift the League Cup in 2008, he never got to play in a Spurs side quite as strong as the one Mauricio Pochettino has forged this season.In an interview with Sky Sports, King tells us who is Tottenhams unsung hero, why Eric Dier still has a future in defence and why hed love to have played under Pochettino… Why Diers future could still be in defence…It depends on him really in terms of what he wants, but I havent changed my mind on him as a defender. I still feel that however how good he has been this season - and he has been exceptional - having had that experience in midfield, once he goes back into defence hell be able to see the game in a whole new light. It will benefit him if he ever does move back. King feels Eric Dier will find life easier now if he moves back into defence But theres no reason for him to move right now. Hes doing a great job for the team and hes enjoying it. With him being a natural defender, hes filling the gaps really well. If the centre-half does get dragged out, he seems to be in there filling the hole. There seems to be a really good balance there. Its a strong unit thats working really hard together.Why Dembele is an unsung hero…Mousa Dembele has become much more of an all-rounder. He used to be more of an attacking player in his early Spurs days but now he seems to be all over the pitch and is defending very well too. He has got so much flair but what goes unnoticed is how hard he works. Key Battle: Dembele v Schneiderlin Matt Cheetham looks at the stats that show how the midfield battle could be key on Sunday. With the strength he has, he just breaks things up in that midfield. When people try to go past him, he just pushes them off the ball and makes it look easy. Sometimes that can go a bit unnoticed. If youre not sliding around the pitch you might think hes not doing anything, but hes a really important player for the team.Why Spurs youth players are so excited…Pochettinos record in working with young players is exceptional. Hes someone who puts his arm around players off the pitch and they just seem to respond to him. His track record in improving players and, in particular, developing players whove gone on to play for England is amazing.I got to work with Josh Onomah quite a bit last season as I was working down there and hes a real good talent too. Its great that we have players who, when they are performing in the youth team, there is the chance for them to make that step up. Josh Onomah and other Spurs youngster can see a pathway to the first-team You have to have a manager who believes in you and is willing to give you that chance otherwise no matter how well youre doing at youth level then you just wont get there. I think everyone in the youth team and the under-21s will be training and playing that much harder in knowing that if they do perform well therell be chances in the first-team.Why hed love to have played in this Spurs team…As much as you go onto the pitch and try to do the right things, much of it depends on the organisation, the preparation and people doing their jobs. Everyone seems to know their jobs at the club now. Were an organised team. King played with some talented players at Spurs but they didnt hit these heights Thats why were getting results. They put the work in and theyre getting the rewards. As talented as my group of players were, we just lacked a little bit of the organisation thats required at the top end in order to get the real results.Its a long time since I was fit - youd have to go back to when I was 25 or 26 for me to be free of injury and thats such a long time ago - but to have played in a team like this at the peak of my powers would have been great. Im just so proud of the current team at the moment and how they are doing.Why Spurs future is bright no matter what happens…Obviously, Leicester are in pole position now. All Tottenham can try to do is win their remaining games and hope that somewhere along the way Leicester make a few slip ups. They can only take it one game at a time and try to nip away at that lead. King believes there are three teams in the Premier League title race If they can claw two points back this weekend and another two soon after that then who knows? But the next couple of results are going to be huge. Finishing above Arsenal is something that hasnt been done for many years so that would be a big achievement. But no matter what happens now, its been a fantastic season for Spurs.We have Champions League football again and the players will be a lot stronger for knowing what it takes at the top end of the table. I fully expect more improvement next season for having had this experience.Why Pochettino should ignore any interest from elsewhere…We all know Manchester United is a huge club but at the moment there is a lot of uncertainty there with whats happening. At Tottenham, things seem to be very well balanced. Hes got a group of young players who are singing to his tune so Im sure hes just concentrating on finishing the season as well as possible. Mauricio Pochettino is being coveted by other teams but King feels he should stay If youre a player playing well then people will be after you and its the same for a coach. But thats part of the enjoyment of it and I think this manager is enjoying the challenge right now of working with these young players. Hes in a great place with a new stadium on the way, so I think the manager is very happy where he is.This season Barclays is giving one fan the chance to present the Barclays Premier League trophy to the Champions.

The Los Angeles Lakers finally won a game after five straight losses to open the season.I know the city probably feels good about it, said Byron Scott, who got his first victory as Lakers coach after they rallied to beat the Charlotte Hornets 107-92 on Sunday night.The party atmosphere didnt extend to the Lakers locker room.They were all pretty quiet, Scott said. What I said was, OK, thats one.Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin each scored 21 points, and Carlos Boozer added 16 as the Lakers left Philadelphia as the NBAs only winless team at 0-7.We got to start somewhere, a subdued Bryant said.Lin and Boozers offence dominated the third, when the Lakers were down by seven before a 25-6 run sent them into the fourth leading 76-64.It was a lead they never gave up.Mentally, it gives us the vision that we can win, Scott said.Al Jefferson scored 23 points and Kemba Walker added 17 for the Hornets, whose two-game winning streak ended. Gary Neal added 10 of his 14 in the fourth off the bench and Lance Stephenson had 10 rebounds.The difference was that they made shots and we didnt. Kobe hit a couple of tough fades and Lin hit a few, Neal said. It doesnt matter that the Lakers were 0-5. Any time you have a Hall of Famer like Kobe, you always have a chance to win.The Lakers scored 14 unanswered points in their dominating third-quarter run, including eight in a row by Boozer, whose jumper gave them their first lead of the game at 61-59.The Hornets were held to five field goals in the third, and just two over the final 3:48, while getting outscored 34-13 in the period.We sat down on them defensively, Bryant said. We flew around and made them take tough shots, made a conscious effortt to post Booz early.ddddddddddddryant, prone to taking over games while his younger teammates watched, still put up the most shots (20) of any Laker, but he scored just nine points in the second half.Bryant had one basket in the fourth, with six other Lakers contributing to the offence. Lin and Wesley Johnson hit consecutive 3-pointers that had the long-suffering crowd on its feet cheering a victory that wasnt in doubt.Guys werent just looking to get the ball to Kobe and step out of the way, Scott said. I talked to Jeremy before the game about being more assertive on both ends of the floor.The Hornets got no closer than eight in the fourth, when the Lakers shot 62 per cent.We stopped playing defence in the second half, Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said. You could see our language starting to fade when we started missing shots and not playing defence.___TIP-INSHornets: Their 92 points were the lowest by a Lakers opponent so far. ... It was Charlottes first game not decided by single digits.Lakers: F Ryan Kelly sat out with a sore right hamstring. ... The Lakers avoided losing six straight to open a season for the first time since 1957-58, when the franchise was in Minneapolis and that team lost seven in a row. ... They played just their second game in eight days.COMFY AT HOMELin has had three consecutive solid games at Staples Center, with 18 points against Phoenix and 17 against the Clippers.Its a matter of keeping the aggression high, he said. I was going to come out guns blazing.STREAKING JEFFERSONJefferson has had five straight games of 20 points or more and is the only player on the Hornets roster to score in double figures every game so far.I was surprised they didnt double-team me, he said.UP NEXTHornets: At Portland on Wednesday.Lakers: At Memphis on Tuesday.
