Fernando Llorente discusses Tottenham's Champions League campaign

Fernando Llorente discusses Tottenham's Champions League campaign

The England forward has struggled to maintain the sparkling form which won him the PFA's Young Player of the Year award for the past two seasons. "Of course the player was frustrated because it was Champions League but nothing wrong".

And after completing the group-stage with an emphatic win over APOEL Nicosia at Wembley, Llorente seemed to be able to only find one word to sum up Spurs' performance in the competition so far.

But that will not prevent Dele, 21, from seeking to prove his point after missing his team's first three European games through suspension.

"I'd like to be at my highest level in every game and training session, but that isn't possible".

"No, I'm not anxious because the performances were good", he said.

"Unbelievable. We have to be very happy because it's very hard in the Champions League, but to be better than Real Madrid in the group is unbelievable".

"In this moment we need confidence because the last few games in the Premier League have been hard for us".

"I think always it's important to assess the players and be sure that some players need to rest because they are so exhausted and they need to breathe a little bit". Beating Real Madrid was a massive statement.

While Spurs progress as group winners, APOEL finish bottom and miss out on a place in the Europa League to Borussia Dortmund, despite the German outfit losing to Real Madrid.

"We felt we could beat them and finishing top of the group with a game to spare has given us even more belief".

The Argentine confirmed Dele Alli will play against APOEL but other key players such as Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen will be left out in what is likely to be a much-changed starting line-up from Saturday's 1-1 draw with Watford.

"Now I am raring to go for any chance I can get to play in the Champions League".

Nonetheless, they secured the comfortable win in the 80th minute. "That's important for us".
