Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk claims he will play despite injury

"That's a big team - you always have to find a way to win and that's what we did".

He admits Newcastle's fight for survival could come down to the last game of the season against Fulham, even though they have a seven-point advantage over 18th-placed Cardiff City.

Built at a cost of around £1billion, Spurs have had to put aside plans to invest in new players and became the first club in the Premier League era not to sign a player in consecutive transfer windows.


Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino takes a training session at Tottenham Hotspur's Enfield Training Centre, north London, on October 2, 2018, on the eve of their UEFA Champions League Group B football match against Barcelona.

With the west Londoners now sitting at sixth place in the Premier League standings, they face a massive struggle to return to Europe's premier club competition via the league with just seven games remaining. We were lazy after [the first] two games this season, and now we are third, but there are still very hard games ahead.

Real moved to within two points of second-place Atletico Madrid, which hammered Champions League hopeful Alaves 4-0 on Saturday in a match that saw Diego Costa score for the first time since November. How many times have we said that about Spurs in the a year ago?


"We were a little bit unlucky to concede the second goal when we should have been ahead because we dominated Liverpool, who are a very good team", said Pochettino.

Van Dijk appeared to suffer a knock in the latter stages of Sunday's dramatic 2-1 win over Tottenham at Anfield and was to be assessed. No one believed when we explained five years ago that we are going to do this and that and be contenders and we are going to compete.

"For the semi-final and for the Champions League, being in the position in the Premier League where you know if you don't win you are going to lose the Premier League, maybe that's going to help us for the other competitions", said Guardiola. "I think that the people start to write that this guy what does he smoke and what pills does he take".
