BBC Radio 5 Live However, former Tottenham winger Chris Waddle highlighted the fact that Jose Mourinho didn't even name 18-year-old Troy Parrott in his squad.The Irish striker has impressed for the youth team since joining the club in 2017, and has already played twice for the first team this season."You are obviously going to miss the quality of Kane and Son, but to be honest I can only think of one chance where you think that they could have scored that," said Waddle on BBC Radio 5 Live."They say they have no strikers but they do, they have Troy Parrott - you have to play him. He's not even on the bench tonight. You can say he is not ready but how do you know? If you have a centre-forward, you play him."Former England goalkeeper added Rob Green added: "Historically Mourinho does not play kids - that is not his thing. You prepare for a season and things go wrong. You have started the season with one number nine, you are getting into the last 16 of the Champions League and you have not got a centre-forward - it is criminal."

Tottenham Hotspur There's just one goal between the sides in the three other first legs that have been played so far, with Tottenham losing at home to RB Leipzig.Boss Jose Mourinho said it was like "going to fight with a gun without bullets" as Spurs were without potent forward duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, and substitutes Erik Lamela and Tanguy Ndombele were not fully fit.They have four games before the second leg in Germany on 10 March and Mourinho feels they will be struggling in attack."We are really in trouble," he said. "If it was just this game I'd say no problem but we have FA Cup and Premier League games."He added: "I'm not worried with the 1-0 - we can go there and win. What worries me is that these are our players for the next however many matches."

Simon Stoneon BBC Radio 5 Live The appeal has to be in by close of play Monday, then it (the timescale) is open-ended.Ideally it would be sorted out before the teams who are going to compete in next season's Champions League have to be confirmed, which is probably the beginning of June, at the latest.Manchester City want it done quickly but they don't want it done quickly at the expense of it being done properly because they see an independent hearing as being the way to get their argument across and prove their innocence.

Simon Stoneon BBC Radio 5 Live I believe he (Guardiola) will stay. And I also believe that Manchester City are not going to sack him.Any day now, Manchester City have to lodge an appeal against the Uefa verdict to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. They say they want this case to be heard speedily and I don't know whether that will be in time for clarity before next season's Champions League so it's possible Manchester City will be in next season's Champions League anyway.I think it's only when that Cas hearing is completed that we'll get true clarity over Pep Guardiola's future and the future of so many Manchester City players, whose contracts are up next season or the season after - during the timescale of the suspension.
