Spurs boss on City clash
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will tell his players to approach the Champions League clash with Man City as though it's goalless.
Spurs go into the clash with a one-goal lead after Son Heung-min's effort last week, but the Argentine says they cannot adopt a defensive mindset of trying to keep City out.
Instead, Pochettino says his side will look to gain an all-important away goal at the Etihad given away goals count double in the event of a draw after 90 minutes.
"We must think that it's 0-0, that we need to do the job that we need if we want to be in the semi-final," the Argentine said. "For sure it's going to be so difficult, so tough. We are playing with one of the best teams in Europe.
"For me the approach must be to act like it's 0-0. There is still a lot of work to do.
"It's so open. For me, Manchester City are still favourites but you know how the first leg was for us, so why not make possible being in the semi-final. We only need to believe and to fight and play football. It's 90 minutes that are going to be very tough.
"Always the belief is a key factor in the way that you approach the game. The faith, of course, it can be decisive. We must play like we played against City in the first leg. I'm sure that is going to be difficult.
"It's going to be tough at the Etihad in Manchester but belief is the most important thing."
