Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino believes teams that play in the Europa League on Thursdays should be allowed to play their next matches on a Monday.

Spurs face Partizan Belgrade before taking on Everton in the Premier League three days later but former Southampton boss Pochettino believes Sunday's game should have been put back 24 hours.

"Maybe it is a good idea," he said. "For Sunday, we are in the same position as Everton. They play in Germany [at Wolfsburg] and we play at home.

"Yes, maybe it is a good idea to play Monday. Why not? One day more is good for the players to recover."

In other European countries more help is given to sides that are competing in Europe and Pochettino cannot understand why the Premier League does not follow suit.

"Yes, yes, it is true," he added. "They look after the clubs who are involved in the international competition.

"I think it is a good idea maybe if you play Thursday and afterwards Monday. It changes your sleep and after it is Friday, you need to train, then Saturday, then Sunday you play at one o'clock. It is very difficult for the players."
