Tottenham skipper Hugo Lloris says his side are “ready to suffer” as they aim to eliminate Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Pochettino’s men head to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday with a 1-0 lead thanks to Heung-Min Son’s late winner in the first leg.

Spurs are expecting a backlash at the Etihad Stadium but penalty hero Lloris, says Tottenham are prepared for it.

“It is all about the mentality, the spirit, to have the same idea of football together,” said the France goalkeeper via Sky.

“Then, of course, we are ready to suffer because Wednesday we are going to suffer, but we know we can make the game difficult for them too.

“It is just about enjoying being at this stage of the competition, being ready to compete. Momentum is very important.”

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino still backed Man City to win the Champions League, despite his side’s first-leg advantage.
