Juventus do face an uphill task when they take on Tottenham in their Champions League knockout second leg. The first game saw the Italian side race into a 2-0 lead before we made a stirring comeback and scored twice to carry a slender advantage before the match at Wembley.

The Italian champions might have some of the best attackers in the world but one player might be out of the clash as Mario Mandzukic is reportedly unable to take part in first-team training sessions.

A report from Gazzetta Dello Sport via FootballInsider247 suggests that the Croatian picked up an injury during the side’s 1-0 win over Lazio on Saturday.

The report also claims that the player’s fitness will be assessed tomorrow at training and a decision would then be taken if Mandzukic would be part of the squad that faces Spurs in the Champions League.

The Croatian did play 76 minutes of the first-leg and losing him would be a major blow for the Italians as the striker is one of the most industrious players in Europe at the moment.

A huge positive for Tottenham ahead of the key clash

Both sides will be looking to put the other to the sword and even though we have a small advantage over Juve, we cannot take them for granted. The Italian champions have some of the best players in the world and if one thing is guaranteed, they will be able to formulate a game plan to see themselves qualifying for the next round.

What is a major boost for us, apart from Mandzukic missing out, is the fact that we seem to have saved a lot of energy in our recent wins, especially over Huddersfield Town and should have a number of fresh players who are also in a good run of form.

Son Heung-min has to be a player to keep an eye out for and everyone will expect Harry Kane to light up Wembley once again as we look to not only knock out the Italian champions but also provided a statement of intent for our chances of picking up the Champions League title.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
