Real Madrid's first ever trip to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Wednesday will come as a welcome distraction to the European and Liga holders in the midst of their worst domestic run of results in five years.
Both Tottenham and Madrid sit on level in Group H with seven points apiece, with a win for either side all-but confirming their entry into the Round of 16.
"With the doctors and the player, we will take the best decision for everyone", said Pochettino. My feeling is good.
Harry Kane has returned to training with the squad, but there are still doubts whether he will start against Real Madrid at Wembley. "We can't let (the United defeat) knock us back".
"It may be possible but I don't want to say 100 per cent as we have one more day".
They may have missed out on Tottenham's last league game, but do not expect the pair to be on the bench for long, and it will be interesting to see how they respond if they are called upon on Wednesday evening. I like that we have a big game coming up.
Most Houston Texans Take a Knee After Owner's 'Inmates' Comment
As the anthem began, Texans players looked around at each other and then the majority knelt in unison. It appears that McNair's apology was not enough for some players.
"It is not without its complications in the build-up but we are prepared to go out and do our job". Freedom, because that is the game that we like to play, we are players and we love to play football.
I tell you what, if they win this then Manchester City deserve to be among the favourites to win the Champions League. In the last fifteen days, we have played Real Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham and Manchester United. It's a hostile atmosphere in Napoli and they have a great mentality, although City are risky on the counter-attack, so I'll go for a high-scoring draw. "It's a great stage to play on against great opposition", he said.
"Of course he's going to help us now".
"I feel I work my best in these situations".
Pochettino spoke of his hope on Monday that Kane could be back for Wednesday's match at Wembley, but stressed it would be down to the player whether he felt up to playing.
