Harry Kane made Champions League history when he scored his ninth Champions League goal in as many games during Tottenham's 2-2 draw at Juventus on Tuesday night. "We look back now, two away goals we're taking to Wembley, it's a great result".
"Of course there will be interest from other clubs because he's doing really well but hopefully he'll stay", Eriksen was quoted as saying by ITV, adding: "We don't really think about that". He was outstanding. All the team as fantastic, but in my three years and 10 months here Christian was always an important player for us.
The beginning of the match, however, came as a rude shock to Tottenham's system as the home side blitzed them with two early goals.
Spurs were by far the better side on the pitch as they produced scintillating attacking display against arguably one of the best defensive side in the world. The team was fantastic in how they reacted, 2-0 down in Turin to a team so hard to break down.
"At 2-0 up everything was flawless, then at 2-2 the judgements changed quickly. we're not interested in those voices". It is a good example of the capacity we have.
And Mousa Dembele, who ran proceedings in central midfield against Juventus, completing 95 passes, six dribbles and creating two chances, has demonstrated his ability to dominate high-calibre opponents time and time again for Spurs. "We will have [Paulo] Dybala and [Blaise] Matuidi back in time for Wembley".
The Juventus match was the latest in a string of Champions League results which have made the rest of Europe sit up and take note of Spurs and Pochettino.
Higuain was still a long way off from scoring the Champions League's quickest ever goal.
'I know the Champions League has taken over now, particularly with the money behind it, but to be successful to be a big club you need to win trophies'.
In Basel, Manchester City all but assured themself of a place in the quarter- finals with a 4-0 win over Basel.
"Two down, in Turin and against a team which is so hard to break down, but in the end we deserved a victory more than a draw".
"Of course against Juventus it is a very good example of how the team is more mature and the capacity we have in a hard moment because the first minutes were hard for us, but the team was unbelievable in the way they reacted".
