Tottenham progressed to the Champions League semi-finals after a 4-3 loss to Manchester City in the second leg was sufficient to secure a place in the last four on the away goals rule.

However, Pochettino remains "fearful" that Levy will take back his £160,000 (S$282,000) gift.

With Spurs also preparing for a Champions League semi-final against Ajax, Eriksen wants to ensure his team keep on winning for the remainder of the season.

Home games against Brighton and Hove Albion, and West Ham in the Premier League will give Spurs the chance to continue their push for third place ahead of the visit of Ajax, but Pochettino said he is not expecting Sissoko or fellow midfielder Harry Winks to feature. "It is a situation that is a very special situation, Christian is a special person, I think we are all special, different and we need to understand that".

The 29-year-old, an author and journalist from Belfast , died at Altnagelvin hospital after being wounded in the Creggan area. During the disturbances, more than 50 petrol bombs were thrown at police and two cars were hijacked and set ablaze.

Injury and illness had restricted him to just three starts for his club prior to returning in Saturday's defeat at Manchester City.

It also bodes well that their opponents have failed to score in their last five league matches.

Meanwhile, Chris Hughton has disputed Martin Keown's suggestion that Brighton's players have "downed tools" and are relying on results elsewhere to avoid relegation. Brighton are a hard team to play against because they are waiting for us, everyone was in their box so it's hard to find any space to play any football and create any big chances.
