I saw him past year when we played them and I'll look forward to seeing him again.

He concluded: "Tactically the fact we were playing on a very big pitch posed Tottenham problems because they like to apply pressure and that is much harder on a big pitch". "Football is on the pitch, the grass", he told a press conference.

"We need to behave naturally and not try to find an excuse, that's never good", said Pochettino, 44.

A header from Toby Alderweireld just before the break set up an enthralling second-half but the French outfit managed to hold on for three crucial points in Group E. We use different pitches on different days during the week.

Spurs will now have to take this experience into the next round of games - they face CSKA Moscow away in a fortnight's time - and learn that at this level small errors, as Pochettino said, can be costly indeed. We can not talk about problems when nothing has happened yet.

The English club last appeared in the Champions League in the 2010-11 season, reaching the quarterfinals before losing to Real Madrid with a team that included Gareth Bale and Luka Modric - who both now play for Madrid.

"It's fantastic for us young players to have a manager with his attitude and work rate. That's the most important thing".

Indeed, the Monegasques followed up an underwhelming 2-2 league draw at home against Guingamp on matchday one by beating Nantes, PSG and Lille consecutively(winning 1-4 at Lille last weekend) and they have now won each of their last five consecutive fixtures in all competitions.

"We trust in us", he said. That is how we spoke in the changing room. "Our mental approach was to remind ourselves of how we beat Arsenal, in just as big a stadium".

"Now we can go there on Wednesday and enjoy the record-breaking crowd".

The decision to play at Wembley was forced on the club as their historic White Hart Lane stadium, soon to make way for a new ground next door, has a reduced capacity of around 31,000.

Striker Harry Kane believes the prospect of up to 90,000 Tottenham fans in the national stadium is "only going to make you play better".

Cape Town - Mauricio Pochettino says more Tottenham players will follow Eric Dier in committing themselves to the Premier League club.
