I'm Happy With Him - Mauricio Pochettino Drops Spurs Team Selection Hint

Paulo Dybala is Juventus's jewel in the crown

Kane: Spurs can handle pressure of Juve tie

"We have got to cope with that and see how we come through it".

'For me, I think it's going very well, personally and obviously with the team too. "Winning one title would be fantastic for everyone and mean a lot because if we can win some trophies along the way, it will be complete - different from other clubs", Pochettino said.

The South Korean's recent performances have drawn praise and questions have been asked over whether he has done enough to earn a start for Spurs against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night. "For me he's one of the best, with Harry Kane".

"We know very well that we are going to play one of the best teams in Europe, but we are a fearless team, very positive people that love the challenge, and tomorrow is a massive challenge".

"You need to live through different experiences and it was the case last season in the Champions League [when they went out at the group stage]".

"We know very well we are playing one of the best teams in Europe but we are a courageous team and we are very positive people".

The Croatian had been expected to start alongside Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa in a front three, but Allegri will now have to assess the fitness of Higuain, who has missed Juve's past two fixtures with an ankle injury, before making up his mind.

"Of course, we are going to play one of the best teams, or clubs, in Europe", Pochettino said.

If the players were feeling the pressure they were not letting it show in a match for a match that could define their season.

Meanwhile, Lloris and Pochettino have both expressed their sadness at the death of Italian defender Davide Astori, who passed away at the age of 31 at the weekend.

"We can say Wembley is our home and that is so important for the team".

"Now I think for our fans and us, it's like our home".

"Most of the players have been here two, three or four years together and we have many shared experiences", he said. "We are devastated about the situation and I send all of my energy to his family". As it turns out, the same thing could well happen again, despite the rules being changed.
