  • The striker has struggled to make his mark for Spurs largely due to Harry Kane's excellence

Tottenham striker Harry Kane said the ambitious London club, who move into a new stadium next season, were heading into the game with plenty of belief and he was hopeful they could take something back to Wembley for the return leg next month. I can understand. And we are frustrated too, because when you cannot play it is hard to accept.

"After going 2-0 up we stopped playing, but part of that was also down to Tottenham's performance". Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to capitalize on Harry Kane's subliminal run in front of goals when they take on Serie A giants in their playground.

'The thought in everybody's head was we have to turn it around, there's no other option now, we're 2-0 down and there's only one way and that's to create something, try to come back. Dele (Alli) put a great ball in and I managed to finish it off.

Danish playmaker Eriksen's influence on the result stretched further than simply his goal, and Pochettino says he is the embodiment of the constant desire to improve at Tottenham.

It will be the first European meeting between the two sides and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said there is no favourite. "We go to London tied and we play a final, and probably they will be under more pressure than us".

"I'm very excited about this draw", Llorente told his club's official website.

Juve, who had conceded only once in their previous 16 games in all competitions, will rue Higuain's missed penalty on the stroke of halftime but could have few complaints after being shaken to the core by a vibrant Spurs side.

"These types of players like [Lionel] Messi, like Neymar, like Cristiano [Ronaldo] can give the team different options".

"We'll have to see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow, so basically it depends on my alarm clock", he joked.

Their Champions League last-16 clash will be a fascinating encounter, pitting two of Europe's most in-form teams against one another.

"I think the problem is about his fitness, no? But our belief, our confidence, our form are good, and we will be ready to be very competitive... we are going to be aggressive, we are going to be courageous and we are going to try to win".
