Mauricio Pochettino: I won't risk ruining Toby Alderweireld's career

"I am in football after two, three years, I am conscious about the sport". In the face of quality opposition - and they don't come much better than Juventus - he was the best player on the pitch.

The second penalty, meanwhile, was the result of Sanchez being dragged forward to try to make a challenge he couldn't win, leading to Aurier's rash challenge on Douglas Costa.

Chiellini, one of Europe's most uncompromising defenders, and Kane, a prolific scorer in the English Premier League, will cross swords again on Tuesday when Juve host Spurs in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. "I think the recent form we've had, it just breeds confidence".

How can I watch the game on TV? With this injury, be careful.

"Of course it's hard for Juventus because Dybala is a very good player, but they have a lot of players like [Federico] Bernardeschi, different players that can play".

Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente believes that it will not be easy for the Lilywhites to play against Juventus, who are able to defend expertly and pose a hard challenge to score against. The team always keeps the same principles.

Pochettino admits when the former Fulham midfielder is able to train regularly without any fitness issues, he can produce the type of displays which have led to him being labelled a genius by his current manager.

We're on the march with Guardiola, we're all going to Wembley! For me it's a game to enjoy.

"He is 28 and it was a massive injury that we needed to careful and be cautious, because we can not put at risk his career", he said. This allowed for them to finish as Group H leaders and knock, Borussia Dortmund out the prestigious cup.

"When I started my career as a manager my goal was to play in the Champions League, to play a team like Juventus here in Turin". Although he stuck with that formation for three games after Toby Alderweireld damaged his hamstring midway through the first half of the 3-1 win over Madrid, he has essentially abandoned the shape since November. We shouldn't get depressed. It remains to be seen whether or not his Juventus omission will ultimately prove decisive with Chelsea, Manchester United, City and Real all watching on.

"It's getting stronger and stronger and that's what we need - competition for places and people pushing each other".
