After dropping the bombshell that key defenders Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld had been left in London for "technical reasons", Pochettino then went off on a bit of a tangent to explain how experience was not always everything in European competition.

"It is like a cow that, every day in 10 years, sees the train cross in front at the same time," he said.

"If you ask the cow, 'what time is the train going to come', it is not going to know the right answer.

"In football, it is the same. Experience, yes, but hunger, motivation, circumstance, everything is so important."
