Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino will desperately want to win in the Champions League on Tuesday night to build some confidence as they face a tough couple of games ahead in the Premier League.

Spurs have been running cold on the road throughout 2019, but face a double Merseyside header over the next two weeks as the play at Liverpool and then Everton.

The last thing Tottenham will want to do is come into these games off the back of another disappointing Champions League result after the Olympiacos draw and Bayern defeat.

Spurs currently sit seventh in the Premier League and joint bottom of their Champions League group after just three wins from a possible 12 so far this season in all competitions.

The Liverpool game will be the first time the two sides have met since the Champions League final in June, with the Reds coming out on top that day in Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp was without his star man Mo Salah against Man United this weekend, but he has now revealed that the Egyptian could feature on Wednesday in the Champions League against Genk.

If fit for midweek, one would assume that Salah could also be ready to play a part against Spurs this coming weekend.

Klopp said (Football London): “Mo was not ready so that’s how it is, he couldn’t train with the team, I don’t where it came from that everybody said he will play, there was pretty much no chance for today, but maybe for Wednesday, we will see.”
