According to Goal.com, Gonzalo Higuain will play for Juventus when they face off against us in the second leg of the Champions League last 16 clash, however, Mario Mandzukic is set to miss the game.

After successfully training with the Old Lady on Tuesday, Mandzukic has been declared fit to face off against us.  The 30-year-old scored a brace and missed a penalty during last month’s 2-2 draw in Turin and missed his sides last two games through injury.

Mandzukic meanwhile will not be among the 21-man Juventus squad. We will be the favorites to advance to the quarter-finals thanks to the two vital away goals.

Juve have a stubborn defence, however, they will have no choice but to attack us during the second leg and they will have to try and beat us at the Wembley Stadium which is a difficult task, even for the biggest clubs in world football.

Pochettino’s m, however, cannot underestimate the Italian giants and if we are not on our feet on the day, we could suffer.

We will also have to successfully deal with the threat of Higuain who is the Old Lady’s top scorer this season with 20 goals in all competitions.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side will also head into the second leg full of confidence after not suffering a defeat during any of their last 20 games in all competitions.

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas believes that we have enough quality to see out the game against the Italian giants and he wrote:

 “You’d understand Mauricio Pochettino contemplating playing two holding midfielders to protect their advantage, but I think he’ll want to do it with a bit of style, thinking he doesn’t need to change the way his team play. I do expect Spurs to finish the job after being so impressive in Turin but I do expect there to be that edge to the tie where they have to come through another testing spell.”

What are your predictions for the game?

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.
