Surely Erik Lamela will miss out from Tottenham XI against Arsenal

  • Pochettino believes Spurs can win at the Camp Nou to progress from Group B

The England global scored in the impressive win against Chelsea on Saturday and Pochettino says he gets bored unless he is playing under pressure.

A win for Arsenal could see them leapfrog Tottenham into third spot.

"If we can win at Barcelona, we're going to go through to the next stage of the Champions League".

"Everybody who follows football knows how big this game is", Alderweireld said.

"To arrive in that way in Barcelona we need to manage and we need to rotate the squad".

'It is going to be a very hard game going away to Barcelona, probably one of the most in-form teams in Europe right now. We have respect for each other in a good way and I'm looking forward to it, but I need a rest first.

The Lilywhites made it back-to-back victories in Group B thanks to Eriksen's close-range finish 10 minutes from time, taking them level on points with their opponents with one game to play.

'I think we can beat everyone if we're on it.

On his side's chances of progression, which is also highly likely to require a win in Barcelona next month, he added: "It is going to give us hope or give us a different reality that we can not fight to get through". We need to win the two games. If not, the demands of the Premier League are so tough. He also defended starting the game with both Son Heung-min and the goalscorer Eriksen on the bench.

Instead, we kept playing our football and when Sissoko and Dele teed up Eriksen in the 80th minute, that patience was duly rewarded with a fine victor to keep our Champions League aspirations alive. Playing games every three days is so tough - so tough for us, and for our players it's so, so hard.

The best case would be by 1-0 or, if they concede, by a winning margin of more than one goal as that would put them above Inter on the head-to-head record following the 2-1 defeat at San Siro.

The Italian side, winners of this competition in 2010, looked threatening on the counter and from set-piece plays, but it was Spurs who looked the more likely to net.

"It hasn't occurred to me that players like Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez could take their foot off the pedal or not care about losing at home".
