Malcom has been left out of the Barcelona squad for their Champions League game against Tottenham.

Messi has reportedly responded to Pique by criticizing Barcelona's defence, stating that the side has conceded way too many goals and that the defence needs to do more work. At home we have to be strong if we want to progress.

Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen are all out of Tottenham's Champions League showdown with Barcelona tomorrow.

"The evolution of the team is there and everyone can appreciate that and see it", Pochettino said.

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.

Kane, who finished as the World Cup's top scorer earlier this year, is back in form, with three goals in his last two games after a lethargic start to the season.


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.

"We would have been team-mates, and maybe I would have still been in Espanyol managing him". We must play on Monday against City and then Wednesday or Thursday and then on Saturday again.

"We are not victims though".

Spurs go into the match after three successive wins in all competitions while Barca are without a victory in their last three games. "Every player must feel they can win and achieve what we want".

With memories of beating European champions Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley Stadium in the group stage last season, Pochettino was urging his side to enjoy the glamour of Wednesday's showdown.
