Spurs suffer Christian Eriksen blow ahead of Barcelona clash

Spurs suffer Christian Eriksen blow ahead of Barcelona clash

Tottenham are facing a mounting injury crisis as they'll be without a number of key players for Wednesday night's Champions League clash with Barcelona. At home we have to be strong if we want to progress.

Barcelona have fond memories of Wembley having won the Champions League there in 1992 and 2011, but Kane is looking to ensure they don't make it a hat-trick of wins at the iconic venue.

"Messi has set the standard", he added.

Mauricio Pochettino's side lost their first Group B game 2-1 away to Serie A side Inter, despite taking the lead at San Siro.

"Both he and Ronaldo have reached figures of 50 goals per season and as a forward I try to do the same". He is still scoring goals.

But on the ground, there's little evidence so far of the pledged aid with shipments expected to arrive in the days ahead. The initial funds would go to the Indonesian Red Cross for the most obvious emergency aid needs, such as tarpaulins.

Pochettino accepts Messi will be Barcelona's biggest threat.

"We've got to prove we can beat the best teams in the world and we need to do that against Barcelona. It's only about enjoying it, being close, helping the players that are going to face him to stay close and, when you have the ball, trying to have possession, to play in the opposite half, to try to push Leo to play far from your goal".

"We would have been teammates, and maybe I would have still been in Espanyol managing him!" That is completely unfair for a team that wants to win some titles.

In stark contrast, the Catalan powerhouses have failed to win in any of their last three games with home draws against Girona and Athletic Club flanking a awful 2-1 reverse at Leganes.

Last season Tottenham ensured qualification for the knockout stage with a memorable 3-1 win over Real Madrid at Wembley but Pochettino thinks it will be hard to replicate the performance against Barcelona.
