Barcelona v Tottenham: Mauricio Pochettino believes Spurs can win

  • Klopp has grown frustrated by other Premier League teams

Pochettino omitted Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min, who both starred in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Chelsea, from his line-up for Wednesday's must-win European showdown against Inter Milan, before introducing them in the second half.

Pochettino is also expecting a big performance from England worldwide midfielder Dele Alli, saying the 22-year-old plays his best football when the stakes are highest.

Barca have not lost at home in the Champions League since 2013. "He's going to play of course and he's showed great quality, but I'm disappointed that we can not come with him in the Champions League".

"We need fresh legs, fresh mind and no injuries".

Arnautovic has scored five goals and made one assist in 11 Premier League games so far this season.

"Inter came to defend, they knew one point would be better than losing", Eriksen said, "and playing against Italian sides you don't have many chances".

Luciano Spalletti has already indicated that he is not expecting Tottenham to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Every three days playing games is so tough - so tough for us but for our players so so hard.


"What Barcelona do is not in our hands".

"I believe in my talent, in my quality", said Moura.

The Argentinian is hoping Dele Alli can step up to the plate again, given his knack for producing the goods in big games.

Inter's knowledge that a point would send them through meant they approached their first competitive match at Wembley with extreme caution.

Sunday's north London derby is a bigger game for Arsenal than Tottenham, according to former Gunners star Paul Merson.

"I think we've talked [before] and if you find my speech from the beginning of the season, I was so disappointed because the squad was so big".

"It gives everyone belief that they can possibly get into the top four", the former Spurs midfielder and manager said. "The most important thing is to try to avoid risk, mix the team with different players and rotate so all players feel important".
