Spurs' Sissoko likely to miss Ajax opener due to injury

Spurs' Sissoko likely to miss Ajax opener due to injury

Substitute Beram Kayal curled high and wide on a rare foray forward for Brighton and the frustration was reaching a peak when we finally broke through with two minutes left.

Tottenham may have lost to Manchester City in their second game at the Etihad inside 72 hours but they remain firmly in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League after both Arsenal and Manchester United lost as well at the weekend.

It secured a fourth win from four matches in all competitions for Tottenham inside their new stadium and more importantly it lifted them three points above fourth-placed Chelsea with three games to go and four ahead of Arsenal who have played one game less. It's the time to say that I'm very happy and pleased with the performance because of the effort, because I think after three games against Manchester City it was really tough to play today and the circumstances are not the best, but I think the team is showing a great maturity, very professional - I am so happy. "We hope he can recover before but I'm not so optimistic".

'I think it's so close, the end of the season.

"We showed [against them] we were thinking of that competition, the Premier League".

"Now our energy is in Brighton". Spurs could also qualify by winning it this season but for the time being Pochettino has set his players two targets: to finish in the top four and to beat Ajax.

Eriksen produced a moment of quality in the 88th minute to hand Spurs a 1-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which strengthens their grip on the Champions League places.

"Moussa Sissoko is not going to be fit, maybe for the next two weeks", Pochettino said.

Manchester City know that they can not afford to slip-up in this game, as the Manchester derby is their game in hand on league leaders Liverpool. "It is a situation that is a very special situation, Christian is a special person, I think we are all special, different and we need to understand that".

"I hope we keep going, getting the same result", he said.

"That's very much the feeling", Hughton told reporters when asked if it was a heartbreaking defeat. It's about assessing every day.

However, Pochettino was bullish on goalkeeper Hugo Lloris's return after the Frenchman missed the league game at City with a muscle injury.

Brighton: On the road in a place where Manchester City was beaten, it's going to be tricky to see Brighton being able to go in and get a win.
