Fernando Llorente on Why He Chose Tottenham Hotspur Over Chelsea FC

Spurs are still without Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama.

'Our long-term injuries are well-known and we have some short-term ones as well, ' Dortmund manager Peter Bosz said ruefully.

"I showed the team the first goal that he scored against Borussia Dortmund, how he fought with two defensive players and then how he scored".

"Pochettino was someone very important, without doubt".

Tottenham were Chelsea's closest challengers for the Premier League title last season as they finished second in the table after an impressive campaign. Pochettino has used a three and four man back line in the Premier League but opted for a five man back line against Dortmund.

As Kane said on Tuesday: 'Dele is a miss, but that is football. The truth is he is in a sweet moment, and we have to make the best of that. Their contest with Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier will be crucial.

The visitors could direct a charging finger at the authorities, that dismissed a flawlessly good goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for offside. He already has six goals to his credit in five matches this season, having scored a remarkable 40 last term.

His 103 goals for Tottenham in 170 appearances stacks up favourably against the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who needed 188 and 253 games respectively to reach a century in club football.

Tottenham had been without a win in their previous two games at the national stadium, losing 2-1 to Chelsea and allowing Burnley to snatch a late equalizer for a 1-1 draw last time out.

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed how a deflected Harry Kane free-kick three years ago might have saved him from the sack.

"Still he feels a little bit of pain in his ankle". The Welsh outfit have lost 18 of their last 19 away games at Spurs and I don't see that record improving this weekend. He looked right at home in the Champions League on Wednesday. The home side are overwhelming favourites against a Swansea team who have only won a single league game so far this season.
