Zidane enjoying challenge of lifting off-form Real Madrid

Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that his Tottenham Hotspur side can not show any fear when they face Real Madrid at Wembley on Wednesday evening in a Champions League group stage game.

Kane sat out their 1-0 defeat at Manchester United with a hamstring problem.

Pochettino told the media, "We'll see, we'll see in the next few days if he can arrive and if he will be available to play against Real Madrid". My feeling is good.

Jan Vertonghen has claimed that he would rather have Harry Kane spearheading the Tottenham Hotspur attack than Cristiano Ronaldo, the newly crowned Federation Internationale de Football Association world player of the year.

"It was a disappointing result on Saturday [against Manchester United] but we've got to put that behind us".

"It may be possible but I don't want to say 100 per cent as we have one more day".

Madrid were also defending champions in the Portuguese's final campaign but came unstuck at the start of the season, dropping eight points in their first four games while Barcelona raced ahead, eventually finishing 15 clear of Madrid while Mourinho had an acrimonious split with the dressing room. It's impossible to compare this game to the Champions League. "We'll take the best decision for him, first of all, and then for the team".

Unfortunately for Spurs, things did not go according to plan, with a late Anthony Martial goal condemning them to defeat.

"I won't be lucky enough to play tomorrow - that is for the players to experience". I genuinely expect it to be much closer than the reverse tie in terms of performance and result. Freedom, because that is the game that we like to play, we are players and we love to play football. "We've got a huge game coming up in Real Madrid".

"As for me, I played in the old Wembley and that was a great feeling".

"I don't think it's more hard to attack three defenders". I think that game gave us a lot of confidence going into this game, and as well the other games this season.
