Tottenham head coach Juande Ramos is focusing on getting the problems at White Hart Lane sorted rather than looking at opposition teams and their tactics.
The Spaniard claimed a week ago facing Emile Heskey had barely entered his thoughts heading into the clash against Wigan, and he has paid little attention to the fact Portsmouth have shipped 10 goals in two games leading up to their clash at Fratton Park.
"I am thinking about Spurs, our team and our players," he said. "I can't think about Portsmouth. They have a manager to find solutions to their problems. My problems are for me."
He added: "It is only possible to win if Spurs play their best football. Otherwise it is impossible to win. It doesn't matter how the opposition line up, if we play badly, we will lose."
Ramos does watch DVDs of other teams, but added: "At the moment the problem is Spurs, not the other teams. We are not playing as we should be so I cannot focus my attention on anything else other than my team.
"My attention, my job, is for Spurs to show their best form. Now, with this situation, when Spurs are playing to our best, there is no problem."
