Tottenham knocked out of Champions League by Juventus

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino has said his team must learn the art of a "winning habit" from Juventus as they aim to move on from this week's painful UEFA Champions League exit. But it's hard to keep losing these types of matches in these types of ways.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea had all beaten Juventus in the knockout phase of the Champions League and they lost to Fulham in the Europa League.

Higuain, who scored twice in the first leg, levelled in the 64th minute before Dybala burst clear of a static Spurs defensive line to curl the winner past Hugo Lloris.

"It was a prestigious victory at a stadium like Wembley".

City's dominance at home is such that it's difficult for opposing sides to even get a sniff, making Basel's feat on Wednesday all the more impressive. South Korea's Son said Spurs were "unlucky" to be out of the Champions League but had earned valuable experience.

"We saw it yesterday between Paris and Real, the history is important, with experience it is important, and tonight we used our skill and arrived at the win".

Higuain has been passed fit after missing the last two matches with a ankle problem, but Croatia forward Mario Mandzukic is out with a thigh injury.

He has not been linked with some of the biggest jobs in European football for nothing.

Daniel Thacker, Tottenham: Gianluigi Buffon spoke beforehand about how the more clinical side would win this game, and with it the tie. The highlight of his performance came in the 78 minutes when he dived to block a shot by Harry Kane. We believe in the history.

Son could have suffered a serious injury in the 32nd after Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli stamped on his left knee after both were vying for the ball. Amazing players, but we knew also that we would have a chance.

Spurs return to Premier League action on Sunday when they visit Bournemouth as their search for Champions League football continues.

Pochettino urged his players to look ahead and not to let their season fizzle out, adding: "I think the team played fantastically, but we lose and now it is to try to see the future and being positive and try to help the team to still improve".

"We gradually improved the quality of our play and bringing on Asamoah, a great competitor, and Stephan supplemented what we were trying to do".
