Tottenham facing injury crisis ahead of Barcelona Champions League game

El balance del Barça en sus últimos diez partidos a domicilio en la Champions League

Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen will join Dele Alli in missing Tottenham's Champions League clash with Barcelona - but Hugo Lloris will start on Wednesday. At home we have to be strong if we want to progress.

We are going to play Monday in Wembley against Manchester City and then we must play on Wednesday or Thursday, and then we must play Saturday and Tuesday in the Champions League. When you're scoring as many goals as he is - 40, 50 or 60 goals a season - as a striker, I want to try and match that. He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and he still is.

Pochettino played for Espanyol when Messi made his first-team debut the previous year but said: "Messi would start to become a great player but, in the moment that he made his debut, it was another youngster that had arrived to the Barcelona team from the academy".

The World Cup victor missed his side's Champions League opener, as they let slip a one-goal advantage in the closing stages to lose 2-1 to Inter in Milan. "It is a period when we are not in good luck with injuries..."

Messi has scored 103 Champions League goals, more than any other player, and has eight hat tricks in the competition. "This is Barca. We have enough players, we don't need to depend on one".

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

Last season Tottenham ensured qualification for the knockout stage with a memorable 3-1 win over Real Madrid at Wembley but Pochettino thinks it will be hard to replicate the performance against Barcelona.
