A 1-0 win over Inter at Wembley on Wednesday night gave Tottenham the chance to recover from a seemingly impossible situation in the group and make it to the next round of the competition. "We have big respect for Barcelona, one of the best in Europe with unbelievable players".

"We played in a clever way against Inter. Against Chelsea and then against Inter, two big teams, we've shown that we can get a very high level".

"The Liverpool performance was good at the Emirates and they will need that sort of performance again and Tottenham not to be on song".

Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's provided a team news and injury update ahead of the game including the latest on Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele and Juan Foyth.

"What Barcelona is going to do is not in our hands".

Back in the Champions League after seven years, Inter has the easier task against PSV, which are already guaranteed to finish last in the group and has nothing to play for.

When Emery arrived as manager in 2016, the pair seemed to hit it off with only club legend Edinson Cavani scoring more than the 19 goals Moura managed in 48 appearances, on top of 10 assists.

Given the physical demands on his players, Pochettino has suggested a rule change that would allow him to repeatedly introduce and substitute players throughout a match.

"I was so disappointed after the Manchester United victory at Old Trafford", he said. To enjoy the life because I love to play football. Maybe we need to change to rolling subs, like basketball, so you can go in and out.

"I am convinced that if we do what we have to do, we shall go through". When we started against Chelsea we were going to play 12 games in 40 days - that means we will play every three days. He broke through the Inter midfield and into the box, squaring the ball to Dele who helped it on to Eriksen and he made no mistake from 12 yards out.

"The most important is to try to avoid risk, to mix ... and rotate", Pochettino said.
