What are they saying?

Conteon Cahill:

"He arrived at the training ground with a bit of fever," Conte said on Friday.

"Our doctor preferred to bring him to the hospital and to check his condition.

"Not a serious problem, but now Gary is getting better and is improving a lot."

Pochettino on Chelsea's status as favourites:

“If there’s a favourite it’s Chelsea, top of the Premier League, with experienced players and the manager they have.

“We are talking about the team who in the past five years won European competitions, World Cups, a manager who won the title in Italy, they’re more experienced.

But we’re in a good moment too. We’re hungry and to challenge this team is important for Tottenham. We will see, but it’s important to enjoy the game. We must feel the happiness. It’s a very important competition and we are fighting the best team in England.”
