Spurs kick off against Turkish opponents in the Europa League tonight and with Besiktas running Arsenal close in their Champions League qualifier, head coach Mauricio Pochettino is wary of the threat posed this evening.
Speaking to the club’s official website Pochettino is looking to build on the point earned at the Emirates last weekend.
“Arsenal was a great point for our belief and to have a good performance there was good for us,” he said.
“Now we expect another tough game. Besiktas are a very good team, unbeaten in Turkey and it was difficult for Arsenal to go through against them in the Champions League, they had a very good performance.
“We respect them but we beieve in our skill and potential and we want to win the three points.
“We need to try to have a good performance, to believe and try to get the three points. I think it’s a good opportunity to show our skill.”
The countdown to kick off has begun but how do you see this one going?
