5 talking points ahead of this week's Champions League action

Spurs news Mauricio Pochettino Alan Shearer

"For sure we'll improve together the team performance and now we need to deal with a few more games and then hopefully the squad will be full again and ready to compete until the end".

The Etihad Stadium scoreboard tells the story after Manchester City whipped Chelsea in their Sunday night game of the week.

The France global kept out Jamie Vardy's penalty, which was the striker's first touch of the game, and made a number of other important stops as Spurs won 3-1 at Wembley.

"We had all the opportunities to win the game".

The game also saw another penalty debate, after Son Heung Min appeared to be tripped by Leicester defender Harry Maguire in the first half but referee Michael Oliver brandished a yellow card to the South Korea global.

It was the second time Oliver has denied Son a penalty at Wembley this season after he chose not to award a spot-kick in the final moments of Liverpool's 2-1 win in September.

Trump says he may let China trade deal deadline slip
Those tariffs now stand at 10 percent, but an additional $50 billion worth of imports has already been hit by a 25 percent tariff. China would likely respond by raising tariffs on $60 billion worth of U.S goods that it announced past year in retaliation.

He said: "I feel so embarrassed because I can accept to play today if Dortmund play today and then we play Wednesday, but I cannot understand why we're playing with a massive disadvantage. We conceded more chances than usual, but I think the victory is fair", Pochettino said.

Pochettino said Son's penalty call was an easier decision to make than the one the Foxes spurned after midfielder James Maddison appeared to be fouled by Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen, Reuters reported.

This gritty success was the ideal preparation for hosting Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last 16 first leg on Wednesday. We need to improve the team performance compared to yesterday and we need the stadium to help us.

In a freakish turn of events, Vardy came off the bench for Gray and walked straight up to the spot to take the penalty, only for Lloris to dive to his right and push it away to safety. But sometimes you deserve to win, like the game against Man United, and you lose.

We were struggling to find our rhythm as the visitors started to dominant and push us back, Vardy and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho spurning good efforts and they were peppering our box with crosses high and low. "Come on. We are the most innocent people on the pitch".
