Harry Kane Could Play Again This Season - Pochettino

But Klopp insists that his players are not exhausted and they are delighted to be in with a chance to win two trophies in the business end of the season.

MOUSSA SISSOKO didn't know his Tottenham side had reached the Champions League semi-final until returning to the DRESSING ROOM at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium. "We just want to perform well", he said. I try to do my best on the pitch. That will not be the case but the Premier League intend to move Tottenham's match against Bournemouth, due to be played on Monday May 6, two days before the second leg in Amsterdam. "They believe in their chances and I would do the same, so we have to show we are ready for this battle".

Liverpool's recent away form has been slightly inconsistent of late in the top-flight, as the visitors have won three and drawn three of their last six league matches on their travels.

But during the minute or so that Spurs were going out, Pochettino said he plummeted to new depths, questioning Christian Eriksen's decision not to play the ball forward in the build-up to the goal and wondering what he could say to his players.

"Even if we don't do it, we've been on a remarkable run; every day with this club and these players".

I saw the word "overrated" being thrown around willy-nilly in regards to his talents, with many questioning his overall stature as a football manager.

"I would prefer to be in the semi-final of the Champions League", Guardiola said.

"We need to assess the players and need to be sure we are going there competing with fresh legs with the possibility to fight and challenge them again", Pochettino added. When they have a lot of injuries they can not train properly to prepare for matches every three or four days so that's why the injury happens.

Third placed Tottenham's top four push could be seriously damaged by this loss if Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United win their matches on Sunday and Monday. "Nothing has changed since July - we are in it, and now we want to win it".

"We are getting to win the important games". At least we deserved a draw.

"They've got young lads coming through who are going to play for England, Scotland and all the other teams for the next ten years so they've got a great mix". "Sometimes it helps you, sometimes not", he said. It will be very hard, for them and for us.

"Romelu Lukaku was left out at the Nou Camp midweek, but I feel he will be restored to the starting XI against his old club".
