We will have to shut Tottenham down - CSKA boss Slutsky

CSKA Moscow boss Leonid Slutsky has identified the areas where his side can beat Tottenham Hotspur this week.

The Russian side host Spurs in the Champions League on Tuesday night and despite the North London side's opening Group E loss to Monaco, the manager of the Russian champions knows Mauricio Pochettino has at his disposal a very strong playing group capable of scoring in various ways.

"Of course we should be very careful in dead ball situations," Slutsky said.

"The appearance of [Toby] Alderweireld, [Jan] Vertongen or [Vincent] Janssen in our penalty box will definitely be dangerous.

"But I don't think that the dead ball situations will be the only or main threat in tomorrow's match as Tottenham have a big group of skilled players in their attack and we need to shut them down."
