Mauricio Pochettino: Let's face Barcelona with a smile
Harry Kane scored twice as Spurs beat Huddersfield 2-0 on Saturday
03 October, 2018, 10:50
Spanish champions Barca opened with a 4-0 win over PSV, courtesy of a Lionel Messi hat-trick, and although they have failed to register a win in their last three games now sit joint top of La Liga with Real Madrid.
Messi, on the other hand, has scored eight goals and bagged five assists in all competitions so far this campaign with a record-breaking hat-trick in the Champions League as well. "I think him and (Cristiano) Ronaldo have gone above the normal standard set by people in years gone past", Kane said.
Spurs conceded two late goals to lose 2-1 to Inter Milan in their first Group B match, but Pochettino demanded a positive approach against the La Liga champions. "50-60 goals a season, as a striker I want to try to match that and do the same". He is still scoring goals.
However, Tottenham will be without Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Mossa Dembele, Serge Aurier and Dele Alli, making a difficult game against the European giants even harder.
Tottenham could take on Barcelona on Wednesday night with up to seven first team players missing through injury as the north London side battle against an injury crisis before the worldwide break.
Having begun his coaching career with Barcelona's fierce rivals Espanyol, Pochettino has ruled out the possibility of leading the Catalan team. "We will do our best to stop him". We must play on Monday against City and then Wednesday or Thursday and then on Saturday again.
That result now makes it three matches in a row in the tournament they have failed to win, going back to last season's knockout stage when they drew 2-2 at Juventus before losing the home leg 2-1.
