Tottenham confirm double injury boost but defender misses Dortmund clash

The Tottenham Coach isn't happy with the Premier League Management

A 1-1 draw against arch-rivals Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday left Spurs 10 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City in the table, with nine matches remaining this season.

Dortmund did everything they could to breathe life into the second leg in the opening period, but they came up against an inspired Lloris, who made a string of vital saves, most impressively to thwart Mario Gotze and Julian Weigl.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino's joy at seeing his side reach the Champions League quarter-finals looks set to be tempered by a likely touchline ban from the Football Association.

"We played a derby against Arsenal and you know what it means to play a derby, not only in the physical condition, the energy that you spend, mental too".

Pochettino was seemingly initially angered by a decision to award a corner from which the Clarets opened the scoring through Chris Wood, though his mood appeared to worsen by something Dean said in response.

"I don't know whether to blame the FA or the Premier League or Tottenham - because we changed the day because we still don't deliver our new stadium - or the TV, because they wanted us to play live on Saturday".

"I expect to play at the new stadium", he said. Spurs had little more than 25 percent possession in the first half and their inability to wrest back control, move away from their own goal and play their usual game is a concern given the calibre of the sides they could visit in the quarterfinals. It was a blow to them and a big boost to us.

"We took our chance and that was game over but we had to dig deep so we're going to enjoy this one".

Here are the player ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players from the game.

And that's because this is Spurs, they don't do things the easy way.

"We need to play like always we play, trying to win, that is important", he said. They will start game aggressive and try to push us deeper.

With the tempo having dropped, Spurs' Pochettino brought on Eric Dier, back from injury, to beef up the midfield in place of Harry Winks for the final 35 minutes.

Tottenham arrived in Dortmund with a 3-0 aggregate lead and predictably faced an early onslaught.
