The Lilywhites beat the Spanish giants 3-1 at Wembley on 1st November, in the process putting up a strong case for them to finish as the top team in the group.

Goals from Fernando Llorente, Son Heung-min and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou ensured Spurs maintained their flawless record at the national stadium in Europe this season.

Pochettino's men had secured first place in Group H regardless of this result and they now go through with a spring in their step, after collecting 16 points from a possible 18 in a pool that included Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.

But how did a much changed Spurs side perform on another productive European night? "Our fans were awesome, we didn't give them the result they wanted but it was magical to see them here".

"I think always it's important to assess the players and be sure that some players need to rest because they are so exhausted and they need to breathe a little bit".

Mauricio Pochettino insists Georges-Kevin N'Koudou still has a future at Tottenham. Always it's important to have more players be more competitive and put pressure on the others players who maybe play regularly in the first team or starting XI.

"I can not complain about the effort or many things, only that for different reasons we have struggled to get good results in the last few games".

"Every game's important and from the start of the season we've wanted to win every game but it's not always happened".

He added: "I'm very happy, for different players had a different opportunity to play and show their quality". Of course players need time to adapt, when you arrive at a new team with no pre-season you need time to find your best level.

"It's a game that only provides us with the opportunity to play with some players that need to be ready if we need them".

Tottenham will look to get back to winning ways tonight when they play APOEL at Wembley in the Champions League.
