Tottenham Hotspur have been drawn against reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the quarter finals of the Champions League. The first leg of the tie will be a home fixture for Spurs, taking place on April 9th, whilst the return leg will be staged at the Etihad Stadium on April 17th.
The north London outfit are certainly the underdogs, but Mauricio Pochettino will believe his side have what it takes to overcome Pep Guardiola’s men. Spurs’ talismanic No. 10, Harry Kane, is certainly in bullish spirits ahead of the clash.

The England captain took to Twitter to deliver a simple, straightforward three-word response to the outcome of the draw: “bring it on.”

Such a confident response will give Spurs fans heart and hope heading into the encounter, but they’ll be relying upon Kane to back up his words with a fine performance on the pitch.
If Spurs are anything short of their best then City will likely tear them apart. However, if Kane is on song then he has the capacity to hurt the opposition.
The 25-year-old striker is one of the best goalscorers in world football. He must now live up to that billing, on the biggest domestic stage, when his side meet City in April.
