"We haven't done that in recent years, we haven't done that this week, and that's going to be the difference", said Kane following their 1-1 draw against Arsenal.

"I think we need help from the FA, we need help from the Premier League, I don't know because I am not involved in the decisions".

"I think we need help from the FA, we need help from the Premier League".

The Argentinian repeatedly said Spurs must "forget" their heavy first-leg win at Wembley and finish the job by seeing off a Dortmund team who have one win in seven games. But of course that is not fair for the players, for the team to compete with a massive disadvantage.

Pochettino believes English sides should be better looked after with regards to domestic fixtures in the build up to big European evenings and pointed to Ligue 1 side Rennes, whose weekend game was called off in order to give them more time to prepare for a Europa League clash with Arsenal.

"They [Dier and Winks] are with the squad but we need to assess them this afternoon and tomorrow to see if they are in contention".

"Both teams play Saturday, I understand, both teams play Friday, I am not complaining or am not justifying".

Harry Kane scored the only goal and Hugo Lloris celebrated his 100th clean sheet for Spurs as they beat Borussia Dortmund in Germany to complete a 4-0 aggregate win.

Winks missed the north London derby with a hip injury while Dier has been laid low for a number of weeks with tonsillitis.

"We need to be more sensitive to the clubs who play in Europe to provide better condition to have the same possibility to arrive to the games". Tottenham leads 3-0 halfway through the matchup and is the odds-on favorite to advance to the quarterfinals for just the second time in its 137-year history.

"We need to play like always we play, trying to win, that is important", he said. Every team's getting better year by year, so it's important for us we don't fall behind that. It's so important to be aggressive, to start the game in a very good level, to fight from the beginning with a high tempo - that's going to be the key.
