'Tottenham were better two years ago' - Redknapp says Pochettino's side have regressed

Kane believes Spurs' draw against Arsenal on Saturday can be a 'turning point'

Spurs were 3-0 winners against Dortmund in the first leg last month thanks to second-half goals from Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente at Wembley.

Spurs had the chance to move within two points of the Premier League leaders last Saturday but have since lost to Burnley and Chelsea, while grabbing a 1-1 draw against Arsenal thanks to Kane's equaliser and Hugo Lloris' late penalty save.

Pochettino believes English sides should be better looked after with regards to domestic fixtures in the build up to big European evenings and pointed to Ligue 1 side Rennes, whose weekend game was called off in order to give them more time to prepare for a Europa League clash with Arsenal.

"I don't understand again, to arrive not in the same situation both clubs going to compete for a massive and important competition like the Champions League".

Other major leagues often do everything to help their representatives in Europe by rearranging their fixtures, so that they can get as much rest as possible, something the Premier League has always been criticised for not doing. But it's impossible in this type of game, the last 16 with how important the game is, that one team had 24 hours more than the other to prepare. In Europe the FAs are more sensitive.

Ralph Hasenhuttl insists Southampton deserved much more from defeat at Manchester United
Belgium global Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the game to rescue the Red Devils from first EPL defeat under the interim boss. They settled down and scored with two unbelievable strikes. "In the second half the goal was offside.

"Because we have warriors and players who are heroes in the way they fight, only we are here because of that", he said.

"When the pressure's on and we need to step up, we need to find a way to get it done".

"[We can't] think that we have a gap because we got a good result in the first leg", said Pochettino.

"We all agree that we need to perform in the best way, it will be a tough game, very hard". "It's so important to be aggressive, to start the game in a very good level, with a high tempo".

"We need to forget the first leg, be very professional and win the game". Tottenham leads 3-0 halfway through the matchup and is the odds-on favorite to advance to the quarterfinals for just the second time in its 137-year history. "When we're looking back in a couple of months or so it could be a massive point gained".
