Redknapp reveals all on Champions League chances, discusses TWO keys

Having confidently dispatched of Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate, they have fallen ten points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City of late, so will be keen to get Alli back into shape for a run deep into European football's elite competition.

Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham will be able to play their Champions League quarterfinal home tie at their new stadium.

That reduced preparation time for the first leg did not hamper Spurs too much, though, as they won 3-0 at Wembley, putting them in pole position for just a second quarter-final appearance in the Champions League.

"I expect to play in the new stadium", said the Tottenham boss.

It means he will have to sit in the stands when Spurs visit his former club Southampton on Saturday and also for the league game against Liverpool on March 31. "It was a tough game but a fantastic result and to be in the quarter-final was our objective". I am more than happy first of all for our players. For me, after five years, it was the first time that we're going to face this situation and for the players and team this was new.

On his touchline ban, Pochettino said: "You are going to see why tomorrow I am not going to talk".

Kane, who missed the first leg through injury, fired in the victor shortly after the restart and against the run of play to silence a fiery home crowd and leave Dortmund needing five goals after having lost 3-0 in London last month.

"Hugo was great. We conceded more chances than we expected, but this type of game, when you beat them 3-0 in the first leg, is very hard - they have nothing to lose".

Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game to take his Champions League goal tally for Spurs to 14, and become the club's record European goal-scorer. It was unlucky for us, but we played very well, especially in the first half. "We want to keep on going, we don't want this to end".

Speaking after the game, Burki said: "We knew it will be really hard because of the loss in the first leg. Tottenham waited for their chance and with Harry Kane up front you can do that". "We can build on the first-half performance but we need to score goals,".
