Tottenham Hotspur got their week off to the best possible start on Sunday, as they put three goals past Leicester City to pick up all available points at Wembley.

The 3-1 Premier League win saw Spurs keep pace with the likes of Man City and Liverpool at the top of the table, and Poch’s men now sit just five points behind.

However, as if the hectic Premier League schedule wasn’t enough, Tottenham must also play a pivotal Champions League match tomorrow night at the national stadium.

Tottenham host Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their round of 16 battle, with the reverse fixture in Germany scheduled for early March.

The Sunday-Wednesday turn around gives Tottenham little time to prepare for the match, and also means that they are without some key players.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Ben Davies, and Danny Rose will all be unavailable for the starting line up.

Pochettino was asked today which competition was tougher to win, the Prem or the Champions League?

He said (Football London): “I think both competitions are so tough and so difficult to win, whether it is the Champions League or the Premier League. They are at the same level. There are a lot more games in the Premier League against very big clubs who are competing for each of the 38 games so you need to be consistent. But I think we have shown that we are able to be consistent this season. We will see – we are so close. But of course in the Champions League the best team in Europe are playing, so for me the Premier League and the Champions League are the toughest competitions in the world.”
