Spurs lose Alli, Eriksen, Vertonghen and Dembélé for Barcelona match

1538372336_5cff7

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was in upbeat mood ahead of the Champions League clash with Barcelona on Wednesday.

The midfield trio of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembélé are all unavailable, as well as centre back Jan Vertonghen, the latter two after picking up injuries in the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

"Because he was so fantastic in the Joan Gamper, Capello praised him afterwards and they changed the decision and kept Messi at Barcelona".

"We would have been teammates, and maybe I would have still been in Espanyol managing him!"

The relationship between Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique at Barcelona is reportedly on an all time low this season after the last two games played by the reigning Spanish champions.

"I think him and (Cristiano) Ronaldo have gone above the normal standard set by people in years gone past", Kane said. "Every player must feel they can win and achieve what we want". What we need is to have players helping each other. We need to produce that same energy, the crowd were incredible that night.

'I know you're not thinking. You never do.'
Similarly to Vega, Collins was reproached with the president wagging his finger at her saying her actions were "not nice". But the president also tried to strike a lighter note, joking about his own bad reputation in the press.

With memories of beating European champions Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley Stadium in the group stage last season, Pochettino was urging his side to enjoy the glamour of Wednesday's showdown.

Pochettino added: "I have a lot of friends in Barcelona, who are from the Blaugrana and to whom I have enormous respect, but my path and that of Barcelona are different, opposite directions, and coaching there would be impossible".

"Now you can not motivate in the same way as you did one year ago".

"The evolution of the team is there and everyone can appreciate that and see it", Pochettino said. The ambition of course is to win.

"All of this makes you more cautious about guessing what is going to happen".
