But remember, the Champions League doesn't resume until February and much can happen between now and then.
Pochettino has been linked with Real Madrid after leading Spurs into the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday, and it was reported last week that Manchester United would like him to replace Jose Mourinho in the summer.
"I don't think the people realise the magnitude of the project and how hard it is to manage everything".
While Salah broke the goalscoring record for a Premier League campaign last season, Brandt netted just nine times last season and only has one Bundesliga goal to his name this year.
But Pochettino said Llorente's future has not yet been discussed.
"After four-and-a-half years we have shared a lot of different moments", said the Argentinian.
I have to forget about that final chance and you can't think about these things for long because our next game against Cagliari comes quickly. It will be a hard competition because there are good teams in the Europa League. When people are shouting at me I take it because they want to make me better and their mistake they take it as well if I shout to them. I never saw something similar. But my wish and hope is we can pay the first leg in our new stadium. Like always, we need to wait now and have the belief that we can beat any team.
"I don't believe it's going to be decisive to play in one or another stadium".
Perhaps the most important piece of the puzzle, and one of the trickier to navigate. "I heard it after the game so I was a bit disappointed about that, but we have plenty of quality players to fill my gap".
"Mo's goal too... he's a matchwinner, a world -class player and he's done it for us again".
Last season's Premier League Golden Glove victor has not looked himself since some uncharacteristic mistakes undermined Spain's World Cup campaign and they went out in the last 16.
He also confirmed Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier, Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez could be back from injury against Burnley.
