New stadium to usher in historic transformation at Tottenham - Mauricio Pochettino



And, ahead of tonight's titanic encounter against defending European Cup champions and fellow Group H pace setters Real Madrid, Llorente has backed Kane to once again produce the goods on the field.

Tottenham Hotspur's 1-1 Champions League draw at Real Madrid on Tuesday was the moment they proved they can compete at the highest level, according to manager Mauricio Pochettino who hopes it could be the making of his young, exciting side.

But because of the way the team plays, the way the man in the dugout has sent them out to play, for Pochettino is a man of interest in Madrid.

Monaco are now bottom of Group G with just a solitary point from three games as RB Leipzig defeated Porto 3-2, with all five goals coming in the first half.

Porto coach Sergio Conceicao sprung a surprise when he left Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas on the bench in favor of Jose Sa, who was at fault for Leipzig's first goal.

In La Liga, Madrid drew their first two games of the season at home against Valencia and Levante.

In three years, Pochettino has taken Tottenham from a club that aspires to play in the Champions League to a team that challenges for the Premier League title.

Tottenham hosts Madrid in the next round.

"For sure it is a chance to measure ourselves".

Kane didn't score in Tottenham's 1-0 win against Bournemouth on Saturday, but he had found the net nine times in his last five matches in all competitions. "We did things well but they defended well and in the end it's a normal draw".

Although there is a chance Pochettino may eventually find the Bernabeu dugout a familiar place, that isn't likely to be any time soon given the current manager's record.

Real Madrid believe they will have too much for Spurs, but they know it's not going to be easy.

2017 has been an incredible year for Kane - so good that many of his goalscoring stats eclipse those of Ronaldo.

Manchester City scored twice in the first 13 minutes before holding off a spirited fightback from Napoli to win 2-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday, maintaining its 100 per cent start to group play.

Tottenham defender Danny Rose has been added to the squad and could make his return to action 10 months after injuring his knee.

He has developed talent like Alli and Kane, and is considered to be among the elite coaches in England, with Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.
