Mauricio on potential opponents in Champions League

Mauricio on potential opponents in Champions League

"It will be a tough game against Burnley and we can't think because we are in the round of 16 of the Champions League and are in the next stage now that it will be easy to beat Burnley".

Even Manchester United's reliable last line of defence David de Gea has struggled for form this season but the Spanish keeper will need to be at his best in Sunday's (Dec 16) clash with bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield.

Mauricio Pochettino spoke again about "belief" as we wait for our opponents in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

The Cameroon worldwide was taken to hospital for tests immediately after the game and Jurgen Klopp told reporters during his post-match press conference that he hoped the issue was nothing serious. But remember, the Champions League doesn't resume until February and much can happen between now and then.

The Italian giants were 1-0 down in added-on time at Anfield and Milik had the chance to net a dramatic equaliser from close range, only to be denied by a brilliant save from goalkeeper Alisson.

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk.

"[Alisson] was there to do his job", Van Dijk said.

India named a 13-man team for the Test starting Friday, which is set to be played on a fast and bouncy Perth Stadium wicket. The Australians often complain about doctored pitches when travelling overseas, particularly through the sub-continent.


"No, no. Why? This type of news I think does not upset or bore people", the Tottenham manager mused.

"I prefer that newspapers talk about things like this than talk about "Tottenham is going to sack me" or "people are exhausted of me" or 'we are in a hard situation.' Of course if I choose one situation I choose this one".

"Manchester United are not drilled enough, they don't have enough patterns so to go and do that, to play Liverpool in an open game, would be suicidal", he told the BBC.

"One season goes well, one season a little bit more hard".

"We have a lot of respect for Liverpool and they played a great game at home".
