Lloris back to face Barcelona but quartet ruled out for Tottenham

LACHAMPIONS FCB | Roma- FC Barcelona

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.

"Barcelona are a fantastic side but previous year we proved we can beat the big teams, especially at home". He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and he still is.

"Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have gone above the norm, when they're scoring 50 or 60 goals a season", said Kane. "As players you want to play against the best in the world and Messi is certainly that, a fantastic player, and we will do our best to stop him".

They should fancy their chances, too.

"Barcelona might play better than Real Madrid did last season. This is Barca. We have enough players, we don't need to depend on one".

Additionally, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier are unavailable as Spurs face an injury crisis before the global break.

'We went through a stage where we didn't win in three matches and maybe a bit of pressure starts to build.

Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde will be without defender, Sergi Roberto, who sustained an injury against Athletic, while Samuel Umtiti is both injured and suspended.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has urged his players to walk out with a smile on their faces against Barcelona. We are not victims, though.

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.

Nearly ten years on, and four years since he took charge at White Hart Lane, Pochettino has proved to be the change that Tottenham Hotspur can believe...
