Mauricio Pochettino: I won't risk ruining Toby Alderweireld's career

Mauricio Pochettino: I won't risk ruining Toby Alderweireld's career

Alderweireld will not travel with Tottenham for their Champions League clash with Juventus after not figuring in the north London derby on Saturday.

Tottenham mounted a remarkable comeback to deservedly draw at Juventus in the first leg of their round of 16 tie. It's over two legs and we have to do the job on Tuesday night. I think at home they will be good enough to get the win as well.

"I had a chance before it (his goal) and I should have scored that, but like I always say, you've got to be ready for the next one". In the last few weeks, the team are growing and have stepped up.

Alderweireld returned after more than three months out in the fourth round replay against Newport last week but was omitted against Arsenal and has not travelled to to face.

Mauricio Pochettino's side, after taking seven of nine points from Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal in a 10-day span, are accelerating into warp speed at a propitious moment. "My idea is to keep playing the same, to try and be a little bit braver if we can". The Tottenham playmaker had been irrepressible, lifting his team from an early crash that left them trailing by two goals, driving them forward with his zip and precision. We've got to be sensible and experienced, as well.

"It's impossible for me to stop Kane on my own, the important thing is that Juventus stop Tottenham", he added.




"Every year we play to reach the final and we do our best and the players have to be very happy with their performances".

The biggest test for a well-drilled Juventus side will be to keep English worldwide Harry Kane, who recently scored his 100 league goal, away from causing any damage. "The Champions League is 180 minutes, but we are nearly there".

He said: "Kane said I made a rough challenge on him once?"

We've checked, double-checked, run the figures dozens of times, and it turns out that it really is impossible to dislike Patrice Evra.

"He is 28 and it was a massive injury that we needed to careful and be cautious, because we can not put at risk his career", he said. HiguaĆ­n hammered his second penalty of the game against the bar on the stroke of half-time following Serge Aurier's foul on Douglas Costa and Spurs capitalised thanks to Christian Eriksen's low free-kick 19 minutes from time to leave the tie tantalisingly poised heading to Wembley on 7 March.
