Tottenham leaves Germany with important point

Tottenham got would could turn out be a valuable point in the Champions League group stage, as they played a scoreless draw against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday in Germany.

Hugo Lloris came up big for the team in the second half, as the French international made a couple of key saves to keep Spurs in the game.

“We were better in the first half, they were better in the second,” manager Mauricio Pochettino said. “Some brilliant saves from our keeper kept us in the game.

“I can only say good things about him, he’s a fantastic goalkeeper, one of the best in the world.

“He showed in every action that he’s one of the best, I think he’s having the best moments of his career.”

With the point, Tottenham stay in second place in Group E with four points, one point behind Monaco, and one point ahead of Leverkusen.

“It was a strong point, an important one for us, so we need to be happy with that,” Pochettino said.

“We’re still in the same position we were before the game, we’re still fighting. We have to win our remaining games and believe we can get to the next round.

“It’s a very competitive group, it was important to get a point from here, especially as CSKA Moscow and Monaco drew.”

Pochettino also gave an update on striker Harry Kane, who is slowly getting back from injury.

“Harry has no chance for the weekend,” Pochettino said.

“He’s only just started running on grass, he’s not training with the team yet, so he’s not ready. There’s no chance for any involvement this weekend.”
