Mauricio Pochettino confirms Spurs will remain at Wembley after Moussa Sissoko criticism

Mauricio Pochettino confirms Spurs will remain at Wembley after Moussa Sissoko criticism

They had chosen to play their Champions League matches at Wembley because of a reduced capacity at their White Hart Lane ground caused by building work on an adjacent new stadium. After getting eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday, Spurs, who lost 2-1 at Monaco, will qualify for the Europa League if they avoid defeat against CSKA Moscow at Wembley on December 7.

Pochettino said: "I'm very disappointed in the way we conceded". And then, the decisions of the club are down to the chairman and the board and us - to me, in that case.

"If we are in the Europa League, we will play at Wembley and then we need to make Wembley our home". Maybe we are not ready to manage Premier League and Champions League campaigns at the same time, but we need to question ourselves about that. "It was very disappointing last night but to win the competition it would have been very, very hard. For me personally it is a big motivation and it must be for the players too". You can not stop and try to complain or blame. "We know we have a good squad and sometimes it can happen that the manager rotates, but that kind of thing shouldn't affect the team because we have enough quality in the squad". "It is normal that it is an advantage for the opponent".

"It was a good challenge for us to show the real level". Spurs have a dismal record at Stamford Bridge and have failed to register a victory there since a late Gary Lineker goal saw them triumph 2-1 in 1990, and they will go into the game without two of their first-choice back line. "That's all I said after Monaco". The objective was to be in the Champions League regularly.

The former Scottish worldwide slammed Mauricio Pochettino for resting key players such as Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen, as he perceived it to be down to the fact that he had one eye on Chelsea at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur have been looking pretty lacklustre in recent months and the fact that their the only unbeaten side remaining in the Premier League is simply glossing over the cracks at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino will be without his two left-backs in Danny Rose, who is suspended, and Ben Davies, who is nursing an ankle injury, meaning Jan Vertonghen is expected to shift to full-back and Kevin Wimmer continue at centre-half.

While Spurs remain the only unbeaten team in the Premier League, they are now in something of a rut, having won only one of their last nine fixtures in all competitions.
