Spurs still pose huge threat in absence of Kane, insists Lloris

"For sure it's going to be tough", he said.

Siewert also stated he's exhausted of hearing about Huddersfield's current position, in the league insisting they will fight until the end of the season and he hopes they can improve in front of goal in the remaining games.

"When you are so courageous, away at Tottenham, until the end, and you have three good possibilities to score, to be the first [away] team who could score here, it makes me proud in a way".

Spurs made a host of changes for the visit of Huddersfield ahead of back-to-back games at Manchester City - one in the Champions League followed by a league trip - and Pochettino was pleased to get his squad players a game.

Spurs were missing the injured Harry Kane and Dele Alli on Saturday, but Lucas struck three times in a 4-0 home win, boosting his chances of starting the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final.

"It's all about confidence - to respect the opponent of course but also to go out there with personality". It's the type of game all players want to play in. It will be an even bigger battle than last Tuesday, so now we must recover and prepare.

With Mr Alles' departure, there are also reports that Ms Grady could be out to smooth the way for Mr McAleenan. Reports suggest that Alles was asked to step down before the incident at Mar-a-Lago.

While Hugo Lloris deserved plaudits for saving Sergio Aguero's penalty, the first leg was won after Kane limped off thanks to Son's 78th-minute strike - a typically cool finish after he alertly kept the ball in play as the City defence dithered. We need experience, nerve and spirit. Everyone, not just me, should enjoy the game and scoring and winning.

"We shouldn't put this pressure on ourselves about these situations".

Kane was sidelined for almost two months in January when he damaged ligaments in the same left ankle in a Premier League defeat by Manchester United at Wembley and was out for a month last season with a similar injury to his right ankle. "There's nothing better than the Champions League quarter-finals at the moment". Having missed much of the campaign due to a knee problem, the Kenyan midfielder made only his second start of 2019 and scored the opening goal.

They should be assured of maintaining their top-flight status after a hard season tarnished by Benitez's discontent over a lack of backing in the transfer market from controversial owner Mike Ashley. "Even if we don't make it, I think we'll still have had a great season".

Kane is getting used to beginning the rehabilitation process as this is his fifth ankle injury in two-and-a-half years and comes just six weeks after his return from his previous one. "Look at the players who came from the bench, they directly had an input - Steve [Mounie] had two good possibilities, and gave everything".
