“The goalkeeper is very important because when the defensive line is higher, he needs to be out of the box.
“He needs to be focused about what happens behind the back-four.
“We work hard on that during the week to be ready to compete in the way we want to.”
Today’s game is not just the best defence against the best attack – but a match between two attacking teams.
Pochettino said: “It will be a very interesting game. It’s a very important one for both.”
