Spurs lose Alli, Eriksen, Vertonghen and Dembélé for Barcelona match

  • LACHAMPIONS FCB | Roma- FC Barcelona

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he almost became a teammate of Barcelona's Lionel Messi at Espanyol in 2005.

Ernesto Valverde spoke to the media at Wembley ahead of Barcelona's Champions League clash with Tottenham on Wednesday.

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. "It is a period when we are not in good luck with injuries..." That is completely unfair for a team that wants to win some titles.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was back in training after a thigh injury but Dele Alli, as expected, was missing with his hamstring problem.

However, he is far behind Argentine Messi who has scored 560 goals in 646 games for Barcelona in all competitions, with 103 of those coming in the Champions League. If we leave him space he will get away from his marker. "This is Barca. We have enough players, we don't need to depend on one".

Bernie Sanders praises Jeff Bezos on Amazon $15 minimum wage
Walmart raised its starting pay to $11 an hour earlier this year and said it has seen lower turnover among its employees. According to the job site Glassdoor, Amazon's average wages at its fulfillment centres is US$13 an hour.

Barcelona will have to stop Spurs striker Harry Kane, who hit two at Huddersfield on the weekend after a spell out of form. He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and he still is.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi continue to set the bar, and Kane believes that's a motivating factor. 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.

Argentina's Messi now holds multiple scoring records, including the most goals in a calendar year.

In stark contrast, the Catalan powerhouses have failed to win in any of their last three games with home draws against Girona and Athletic Club flanking a awful 2-1 reverse at Leganes.
