Spurs can defy odds to upset 'favourites' Man City, says Pochettino

SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (APRIL 16, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM MANAGER, MAURICIO POCHETTINO, SAYING: "And of course, it's going to be tough tomorrow.

I think Manchester City for me is one of the best teams in the world and of course is a clear favourite to win the Premier League and win the Champions League.

For us, to beat them in the first leg was an amazing result, but we know very well that the title is still open and of course tomorrow is going to be very, very, very tough.

But, what we have is the belief and the faith that we can be strong and we are going to fight.

That is the most important (thing) in football.

And then, to hope and wish to have a very good performance, and them not so good.

And to have a little bit of luck, because you need it in any competition or game, at important moments or periods of the game - and of course, be ready to profit from that circumstance.

But, of course, tomorrow is going to be an amazing challenge and fight.

I am so motivated.

I'm so excited to play tomorrow." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM MANAGER, MAURICIO POCHETTINO, SAYING: "Well, we need to assess him (Alli).

We are going to have the last training session today and then to decide if it can be possible (for him) to start from the beginning or start with the eleven or on the bench.

We need to asses him today." STORY: Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Manchester City are "clear favourites" to win the Champions League but his players will give everything to defend their lead in the second leg of the quarter-finals on Wednesday (April 17).

Spurs head to the Etihad Stadium with a 1-0 lead courtesy a Son Heung-min's late winner in the first leg last week.

With the League Cup already in the bag, Guardiola's side are second in the league, two points behind Liverpool but with a game in hand and have also reached the FA Cup final.

But Pochettino is convinced his players are capable of defying the odds, despite the absence of the club's top scorer Harry Kane due to injury.

"Of course, it's going to be tough tomorrow.

I think Manchester City for me is one of the best teams in the world and of course is a clear favourite to win the Premier League and win the Champions League," Pochettino told reporters on Tuesday (April 16).

"Tomorrow is going to be an amazing challenge and fight," he added.

Spurs are sweating on the fitness of England midfielder Dele Alli, who fractured his hand during the first leg and missed the subsequent 4-0 league victory over Huddersfield Town last weekend.

"We need to assess him," Pochettino said.

"We are going to have the last training session today and then to decide if it can be possible (for him) to start from the beginning or start with the eleven or on the bench."
