Despite so many impressive displays, the Old Lady still find themselves sat second, behind leaders Napoli, in what has been quite an enthralling race for the title in Italy this season.

Pochettino's decision to not take key defender Toby Alderweireld to Turin to allow the defender to recover better from his injury shows the foresight he possesses to see the bigger picture, while reposing faith in the players available to him. I can understand. And we are frustrated too, because when you cannot play it is hard to accept.

Kane, scorer of 32 goals for Spurs in all competitions this season, will lead his team into the Allianz stadium in Turin, where the Italians have lost only once in 27 Champions League games. "There is a fine image of Juventus here and I raise it even more: I always speak very highly of the Bianconeri and give them a good rep".

"The turning point was definitely those two Champions League games against Real and Dortmund".

Juventus coach Max Allegri says they're growing as a Champions League team.

THE return leg takes place at Wembley on March 7.

Pochettino has also opted to leave fellow defenders Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters in London but aside from those two and Alderweireld he has a fully-fit squad for the first-leg clash against Juve, who are yet to concede a goal in 2018.

"I am so excited to be here for almost four years now, developing a very nice project and I think we have a very nice project ahead".

A few hailed him as a "world class' operator while others said he was the outstanding central midfielder in the world following excellent recent performances against Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United".

"You need a competitive environment like that", said Dier. "Today my idea is to keep playing the same, to try and be a little bit braver if we can, but being clever because their level is one of the best in Europe".

"We need to play well and try to score, which will be hard against a team that is so tough to score against". "The fans have made it their home and that's the feeling we have at the moment here and the support is fantastic". It's not easy to score in Serie A. They defend well, they have good tactics and normally play with five defenders, so it's not easy to play against them.

"We won the group and now we are here, enjoying thinking about the game".

"Of course someone will replace him because we have to play 11, but it'll be someone with different characteristics", Allegri said.
