Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente admits he misses Juventus “like crazy”

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has labeled the club's 2-2 Champions League draw with Juventus as "one of the greatest" performances in the club's history. "I think I was a good judge".

Spurs had fallen behind to an early Gonzalo Higuain brace and, after Harry Kane pulled a goal back, the Argentina worldwide missed a penalty.

"Juventus has never been favourites in this tie".

"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.

"We could have [capitulated], away from home in the Champions League".

"But if we could win the first leg it would be fantastic".

They claimed bragging rights in the north London derby against Arsenal on Saturday to close within a point of the top four and have been quoted by the same betting firm at (3.65) to claim a valuable first leg away win. It's not so obvious. "I'm so excited. My focus though is on tomorrow", said Pochettino, as quoted by Football London.

Mauricio Pochetino has reiterated his stance that he is happy at Tottenham Hotspur despite continuous links to reigning European champions Real Madrid. "I think the recent form we've had, it just breeds confidence".

For the German press, such open resistance to Merkel is a sign that the long-serving leader could be on the way out. Any agreement will be submitted to a ballot of the Social Democrats' members, a process that will take a few weeks.

And now as Tottenham prepare to fight the battle that will decide who will play in the Champions League quarter-finals, Llorente insists that the Lilywhites will have to brace themselves for a tough fight.

Danish playmaker Eriksen's influence on the result stretched further than simply his goal, and Pochettino says he is the embodiment of the constant desire to improve at Tottenham.

Higuain took the ball but rather than celebrate a first-half hat-trick his penalty rattled the crossbar.

"We didn't have enough men at the front".

"The team showed great character and the good thing is that this is our fourth season and always we are improving in different aspects. He will be part of the team to face Rochdale next Sunday and then we are going to assess him day-by-day".

"We're sorry for him to miss massive games like Arsenal and the Champions League".

Mauricio Pochettino's side were 2-0 down inside 10 minutes after Gonzalo Higuain followed up a sumptuous volley with a penalty, awarded for Ben Davies' foul on Federico Bernardeschi. Football gives and football takes.

"We're more experienced that previous year, we've just got to see how far we can go and take each game as it comes".
