Tottenham host Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night in the first leg of a Champions League last-16 tie and have been dealt an injury blow.

Leicester, meanwhile, head into Sunday's game in stuttering form, with the Foxes having won only one of their last five Premier League games.

Since joining Dortmund from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2012, Reus has missed 105 club games due to various injury problems, however he has been relatively trouble-free this term, missing just three games through injury in total.

"We came from a tough Christmas period when the teams in Germany and Spain were enjoying some holidays", he said.

For now, the North London side are currently in third place and just five points away from league leaders Manchester City. Over two games we were the better team against Real Madrid (four points from two group games) who were the eventual winners of the trophy. I feel a bit of responsibility for keeping him on the ground because I know, now we are here in England, you are world famous for hyping your own players.

He has them well-drilled and they have lost only twice in all competitions...

Pochettino says Tottenham and the other Premier League teams in Europe are already at a disadvantage because of the winter breaks given to German, Italian and Spanish teams.

I need them to lose. "Whatever he was doing - because of his age and all that - he's not doing as much of that anymore", he continued. "But it still gets done".


"That is why everyone has the feeling we can do it this year".

"With one day more, maybe Danny can be available, but to reduce the time in between both games - Sunday and Wednesday - is almost impossible", Pochettino said.

What happens against Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow will go a long way in determining what the actual outcome will be vis-à-vis Leicester's season and Puel's future.

The 18-year-old England global has been a real hit for Bundesliga leaders Dortmund and will be keen to show what he can do.

The Argentine is hoping for a big crowd to help them through the clash after watching attendances spiral at their temporary Wembley home.

Goalkeeper: I don't think there is much debate over who'll start in goal as Hugo Lloris is nearly certain to keep his place between the sticks with Paulo Gazzaniga having to make-do with a place on the bench.
