Tottenham confirm double injury boost but defender misses Dortmund clash

It is fair to say Lloris has attracted criticism at times this season for costly errors, but he was at the top of his game on Tuesday, particularly in the first half when he thwarted Gotze, Sancho, Weigl and Alcacer.

With the hard work done in the first leg at Wembley, Tottenham knew that only a monumental slip-up would cost them their place in the quarter finals, although did have to withstand a Borussia Dortmund onslaught in the first half.

The Argentinian repeatedly said Spurs must "forget" their heavy first-leg win at Wembley and finish the job by seeing off a Dortmund team who have one win in seven games.

They missed out in the race for the Premier League to Leicester City in 2016, with the Foxes finally securing the title when Spurs let a two-goal lead slip to draw at Chelsea in May.

"In Europe, the FAs are more sensitive to help the club to compete in the best way in Europe".

"I think we need help from the FA, we need help from the Premier League, I don't know because I am not involved in the decisions", the Argentinian said.

"I want us to have the same amount preparation time as our opponents".

"It's a great opportunity to go to the next round, but we need a good performance - it's going to hard", said Pochettino.

"We need to play like we always play, trying to win the game".

Yep, 24 hours after the guys admitted they had gotten the group back together their music will hit the airwaves. The music video premiered on Thursday night, and unsurprisingly, the song is incredibly catchy.

"We know it will be very hard but you never know", he said.

Dortmund can approach the second leg with some confidence given that these two sides met in the Europa League round of 16 last term.

Tottenham goalkeeper Lloris added: "As expected they pushed in the first 20 mins and we stayed strong together and that's why we got through".

The Argentinian is demanding that his side go on the front foot against Lucien Favre's side. It's so important to be aggressive, to start the game in a very good level, to fight from the beginning with a high tempo - that's going to be the key.

"It's going to be tough".

"They showed that they can do it even if that was not a knockout game".

Harry Winks (hip) and Eric Dier (tonsillitis) have travelled but might only be fit for the bench.

Spurs will be without Dele Alli (hamstring) and Kieran Tripper, with both staying in London.
