Tottenham overcome Leicester challenge to stay in title hunt

Share

The Denmark worldwide said ahead of an outing for Sancho at Wembley on Wednesday in a Champions League clash with Tottenham: "Jadon is a big, big talent and with talent comes opportunities and he has them for sure".

Adding to Pochettino's frustration, Dortmund have also benefited from a refreshing winter break, while Tottenham have been damaged by injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli following the draining Christmas and New Year programme.

Lloris calls for total concentration of the players and the presence of fans at Wembley to ensure victory. "We had one week clear to play this game and schedule it on another day".

For now, the North London side are currently in third place and just five points away from league leaders Manchester City.

"If we are being targeted (by referees), I don't understand why".

Dortmund played on Saturday and the Argentinian believes his side are now at a massive disadvantage by having 24 hours less to recover.

Dortmund have selection problems of their own and they will be without Marco Reus (thigh), Paco Alcácer (shoulder), Julian Weigl (flu) and Lukasz Piszczek (foot).

Australian Prime Minister praised the decision and said late Monday that al-Araibi was on his way to the airport. In his comments Monday, he said he appreciated the work of all involved in securing al-Araibi's release.

"Yes, we have a few dropped out, but we won't be going there just to wave", said Dortmund's director of sport Michael Zorc.

They might have drawn their last two league games but prior to that, they'd won nine of their last 10 top-flight matches.

"He's showing his value and of course in the decisive moments like today it was so important to help the team achieve the three points".

"That is why everyone has the feeling we can do it this year".

Tottenham went ahead through Sanchez who scored his first goal for the London club by meeting Eriksen's whipped cross with a diving header in the 33rd minute.

The 18-year-old England global has been a real hit for Bundesliga leaders Dortmund and will be keen to show what he can do.

It promises to be a gripping occasion and the Wembley attendance will not be capped, meaning Spurs can hope for a huge crowd. "They all need to make progress and we will be passionate with these players".
