Mauricio Pochettino has no problems with Tottenham's late kickoff on Saturday, but he is worried how his dog will cope without him.

Tottenham travels to Molineux this weekend looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Monday.

The clash is the latest match to take place at 19:45 GMT in the English top flight, a new initiative from the Premier League.

Fans have questioned the decision due to the travel problems it will cause, but Pochettino just hopes his pet can deal with his absence from their normal Saturday night viewing.

"It is similar to when you play [in the] Champions League. [But] it is strange because it is on a Saturday," he told a media conference.

"At seven o'clock, 7:30 I am [normally] on my sofa with my dog, Sansa, and watching the Spanish league because they start 7:45 or France because LaLiga starts at eight o'clock, or Italy or different games. 

"It will be so strange for my dog. Not for me but my dog. 'Where is my dad?' she is going to say. She is beautiful and I am in love with her."
