Dele Alli was a spectator when Tottenham Hotspur earned a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid earlier this month but after a frustrating wait he will get his first taste of Champions League action this season in Wednesday's return at Wembley.

England global Kane missed Tottenham's 1-0 loss to Premier League rivals Manchester United through injury on Saturday.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said over the weekend that he was optimistic the prolific 24-year would get the green light to face the Spanish giants.

"What I'm most annoyed about is not killing the game off when we had the chance to do it", the coach said in a news conference after Girona snapped Real's record run of 13 consecutive away wins over the course of two seasons. My feeling is good.

Harry Winks has targeted a famous result against Real Madrid on Wednesday evening as he aims to take inspiration from former Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale.

"Of course it's a game where you have to be courageous", he added.


Wanyama was instrumental in Spurs' push for the Premier League title, last season. We're going to go into the game expecting of ourselves that we can do it and we're looking forward to it. There is always pressure, but despite that we're not going to lose our heads.

"It's important we learn from this, work on what's gone wrong and keep building as a team because we're still in a fantastic position and we've been in good form". We must remember that we must play with freedom and enjoy the game, because if not this, it is hard to show your real quality. Some teams play five, some teams play four, some teams play three. Sometimes, it is better to play them after a loss and sometimes they can be relaxed and confidenct. We don't know and we'll have to see.

"As for me, I played in the old Wembley and that was a great feeling".

However, it's not just his goalscoring that has been missed, Kane is able to hold up play and brings others into the attack, and Spurs struggled to offer much threat without him against Manchester United on Saturday.

I tell you what, if they win this then Manchester City deserve to be among the favourites to win the Champions League.
