Hugo Lloris will start Tottenham's Champions League game against Barcelona

Hugo Lloris will start Tottenham's Champions League game against Barcelona

The Brazilian, anxious by Barça's recent results, said: "We all know how good Messi is, but Barça have other great players in the team and to keep depending on Messi's goals and assists is damaging".

Pochettino's men are now fourth in the Premier League, picking up 15 points from their first seven games.

Young centre-back Juan Foyth and winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou trained with the squad but are unable to face Barcelona because they have not been registered in Tottenham's squad for the Champions League group stage.

Kane and Messi will be the leading men at Wembley on Wednesday when Tottenham host Barcelona in a crucial Champions League clash.

Barcelona have not won in La Liga since their 4-0 defeat of PSV in the Champions League last month although the Spanish giants have only lost one of their last 11 Champions League ties against English clubs. We know Barcelona are a top side but we showed a year ago that we can beat the top teams, especially at home.

"It's a good chance to win and focus on ourselves, maybe there's some pressure, but we want to show that people are wrong", Kane said in his pre-match press conference.

Spurs will have to take on Barcelona without Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen, who have joined Dele Alli on a growing casualty list. "Every player must feel they can win and achieve what we want".

However manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is available and will play after recovering from a thigh injury.
