  • Tottenham's Lucas Moura celebrates with the match ball following the 4-0 win over relegated Huddersfield Town

Lucas has given Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino a big selection headache ahead of their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester City on Wednesday.

Tottenham Hotspur FC at the new stadium in the first match of 1/4 of final of Champions League will meet "Manchester city".

His England team-mate Dele Alli, meanwhile, will be assessed before the match after breaking his hand against City. The timing of his recovery is still unknown.

They are two points behind third-placed Chelsea, who have played a game more, and a point above fellow London rivals Arsenal, with Manchester United a further two points back in sixth and only six games left in the season.

Pochettino says they will do everything they can to make it happen.

"For some of us, they will be the last Premier League games of our lives so we have to try to enjoy it a little bit as well".

'He feels sad and disappointed like everyone at the club. "We trust in ourselves and are confident we are going to get the top four".

Kane sustained the injury when aggressively tackling Fabian Delph at the side of the pitch near the halfway line.

"He was so upset after the game - it was a hard moment for him", he added.

'Now is not a moment to talk too much, now is a moment to help him be fit as soon as possible, to help us, and in the summer if Gareth Southgate thinks he's going to be important to help the national team then to help the national team'.

There was no further addition to the scoreline in the first period, but there so almost was two minutes after the break when Juan Foyth clipped a ball in to Llorente in the area, who superbly controlled and shot on the turn but his effort smacked against the crossbar.

"We'll see because we are not sure", Pochettino said on Alli.

"We need to assess him every day, but we need to have proper answers to see when he can possibly start training with the team". It is so painful. I am more optimistic he will be available for Man City in the second leg. Davies fired wide, Lucas weaved his way past three defenders before firing straight at Hamer from 20 yards and Llorente glanced another header just wide - this time from a Davies cross - as we continued to dominate the game.

Serge Aurier, Eric Dier and Erik Lamela are Tottenham's other confirmed absentees for the visit of relegated Huddersfield.
