The teams should be with us soon, at which point we'll know how Spurs intend to approach this one but it's more than likely it'll be in that same 4-2-3-1 we've seen recently, with Harry Kane the focal point. I think we fully deserved the victory.

You must go back to Pochettino's first season in charge to find a more generous side - that team's 12.9 shots faced per game marginally higher than this season's 12.6.

"It was completely unfair, the (score), during the game because to concede so early increased their belief".

"I hope I continue to have opportunities, it's important for me because it gives me the confidence to keep working, it's not easy when you do not play because mentally you have to be very strong to continue training hard".

Jurgen Klopp praises Unai Emery for proving himself to Arsenal fans
Last season Arsenal , under Arsene Wenger, took just six points from matches against other members of the "Big Six". The two clash at the Emirates on December 17 and face off in the Premier League little over a fortnight before.

Fans were all in unison with their praise for Winks, stating that he was the best player on the pitch.

The Euro Club Index estimates the chance of progress for Spurs at around 15%. Mark van Bommel's side showed plenty of quality to battle back from a goal down to steal a point against the ten men of Spurs thanks to a late Luuk de Jong strike.

'I understand [the boos],' said Pochettino. The whole season we've been grinding out results here and there. I thought we were so close to winning the game [against Inter Milan in Italy]. Against Barcelona, he was paired with a barely-fit Victor Wanyama in midfield while for the PSV clash, he seemed to be tasked with holding Spurs' midfield together on his own given the attacking line-up his manager named.
