For Sancho, the game at Wembley on Wednesday will be the first senior club match he's played in London, the city in which he was born and raised.

The Kiwi bagged a brace in a key game against Brighton on Saturday, taking his tally to five goals in seven games in what a vital win for the Clarets against the Seagulls, who both now sit on 27 points, three points above the drop zone, with Burnley now unbeaten in their last seven.

"I've been speaking about German football with some of the guys and with Axel when we're in the national team - they're having a great season, playing some nice, attacking football and they're doing very well at the top of the league".

The 18-year-old will now come up against Pochettino's Tottenham side in a Champions League last-16 tie, which gets underway at Wembley on Wednesday night.

"The effort was fantastic, with the circumstances that happened in this game and also this season".

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has no problem with Tottenham being linked to James Maddison.

"In Marco Reus, Dortmund are missing their best player". I said if he felt good he could take it.

"That is why it was a shame we could not do better a year ago because we felt we should have done better". Tottenham have a 55% chance of reaching the quarter-finals.

Still angry about the decision after the match, Pochettino fumed: "It's unbelievable".

"I am a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so unusual the situation today". I told Michael Oliver.

"When you compare the situation with the penalty against us, unbelievable. Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".

Pochettino's men channelled their frustration into a sustained assault on the Leicester goal.

Kieran Trippier's corner was played short to Eriksen, who floated in an inviting cross for Davison Sanchez to power home a diving head for his first Tottenham goal in the 33rd minute. We have had a lot of opportunities, not just the penalty.

A rapid exchange of passes opened up a chance for Maddison, prompting Jan Vertonghen to rashly bundle over the midfielder.

Tottenham doubled their lead three minutes later as Eriksen collected the ball on the edge of the penalty area and unleashed a fierce shot past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
