Spurs missing a number of players for Barcelona game

Adjust Comment Print

Harry Kane has spoken of his determination to emulate or better the prolific scoring output of Lionel Messi, as he prepared to face the Barcelona star in the Champions League at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Mauricio Pochettino has hit out at Tottenham Hotspur's "unfair" fixture schedule. We need to produce that same energy, the crowd were fantastic that night.

Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen are all out of Tottenham's Champions League showdown with Barcelona tomorrow.

"We went through a stage where we didn't win in three matches and maybe a bit of pressure starts to build". We are not victims, though. He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and he still is. "We must feel strong", Pochettino told a news conference on Tuesday.

"As a striker I want to try and match that".

Donnelly, who is on the ballot for re-election in November, says he will not vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Christine Blasey Ford alleged that Kavanaugh and a friend held her down and attempted to rape her at a party in high school.

Messi has reportedly responded to Pique by criticizing Barcelona's defence, stating that the side has conceded way too many goals and that the defence needs to do more work.

Kane and co can also draw on the memories of last season's stunning 3-1 Wembley win over Real Madrid. That is completely unfair for a team that wants to win some titles.

Spurs captain and No. 1 goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was also on the practice pitch ahead of Wednesday's match, and will be available to return having missed the last six games with a thigh injury.

England captain Kane has been the Premier League's top scorer for two of the last three seasons and won the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

And former Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda believes it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Pochettino and co will be celebrating at full-time, particularly if they impose their style on Ernesto Valverde's style.
