Dortmund vs. Tottenham: Eriksen and Pochettino's point of view

"But this is always good to know, so I will tell Dele".

"The referee moves on and I'm sure nothing in his mind to ban him for that situation".

"I will tell Dele be careful".

Tottenham Hotspur take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

"I've said it for the last two seasons, I think Arsenal and Tottenham are very, very close at the moment and I put Liverpool there with them as well".

"But I think we have showed so far that we are better now - good enough to come back". "At the same period, one year ago, we were in Monaco, and after that game we were out of the Champions League".

"We are going to play with our best team, fresh players and like always never taking risk with them".

"People need to talk, they need to write. It used to be that we could not win at Wembley, we don't hear that any more".

A 3-1 win in their last Champions League outing means that Spurs have already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition, but will now be looking to claim top spot.

Pochettino wants to bag up those points tonight and take the foot off the pedal completely against Apoel next month, so will look to field as strong a team as possible, given the congested fixtures list.

But with star striker Harry Kane suffering problems before the global week and taken off with 15 minutes to go at the Emirates on Saturday, Pochettino may use it as a chance to rest him completely.

However, Pochettino said there is no issue with the defender, saying that both Rose and Erik Lamela just need to build their fitness following their long spells on the sidelines.

Many Arsenal fans have even conceded defeat in their hopes of Ozil and Sanchez staying in North London, suggesting that Arsenal should get some fee by selling them early during the upcoming January transfer window.

This team lines up in a 4-3-3 and is managed by Wenger.
