Tottenham get ready for Dortmund Champions League test

Heung-Min Son has been a crucial player for Spurs this season

I don't think many defenders have been included in the Team of the Week after they had faced up against the most timid strike force in the Premier League, but Huddersfield actually discovered a semblance of attacking threat against Arsenal, with the Terriers having 15 shots compared to the Gunners nine. 'Without that, we could not win.

The Frenchman added: 'Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character.

Jurgen Klopp's men maintain the advantage of a game in hand, but handed a reprieve by Liverpool's draws against Leicester and West Ham in recent weeks, City look determined to become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has called on the club's supporters to rally behind the team ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League knockout tie against Borussia Dortmund.

He said: "I feel so embarrassed because I can accept to play today if Dortmund play today and then we play Wednesday, but I cannot understand why we're playing with a massive disadvantage".

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino criticised the performance of referee Michael Oliver, despite seeing his side overcome a spirited Leicester 3-1 at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

While Spurs have continued their impressive winning form in the league, they will face a big test against the Bundesliga table toppers.

"It's going to be very, very hard".

"In terms of performance, we have to do better if we want to dream of big achievements". For sure we'll improve. Now we need to deal with a few more games and then, hopefully, the squad will be full again until the end [of the season]. I said if he felt good he could take it.

Maddison took the ball and was going to take the spot-kick, only for Vardy to enter the fray and take the penalty with his first touch of the game.

And Tottenham are now reportedly (Spanish Outlet Sport) looking to convince another player that north London is a better place for him to develop than Paris - Adrien Rabiot.

"It was the same feeling against (Manchester) United, we wasted a lot of chances".

"I know him [Vardy] a little more than other players". He usually shoots strong and he can go everywhere [in the goal]. You need intuition and a bit of luck [to save it]'.
