Why Juan Foyth is not registered in Spurs Champions League squad

For Spurs to take their Champions League hopes to the final game is an impressive achievement after a disgusting start to their Group B campaign, where they had just a point at the halfway stage.

'It is going to be a very hard game going away to Barcelona, probably one of the most in-form teams in Europe right now. "Against Chelsea and then against Inter, two big teams, we've shown that we can get a very high level".

The Spurs boss can call upon the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen for the match though, and he'll be hoping the trio can inspire the team to the victory which will keep their chances of going through alive.

"It was a very good move", Eriksen said, "and I'm happy to finish it".

Vertonghen has been a mainstay of Pochettino's defence for the past few seasons alongside his Belgium worldwide team mate Toby Alderweireld, but has not played since Spurs beat Huddersfield Town on September 29.

He was not included in the Champions League squad due to Uefa rules that only allow 17 non-locally trained players, Spurs have 20. But of course it will be so hard and we need to focus now on Sunday - another derby against Arsenal. For different reasons we need to find solutions before the start of the season.

The England global scored in the impressive win against Chelsea on Saturday and Pochettino says he gets bored unless he is playing under pressure.

"The form we're in right now, it's probably the flawless time to go there", he said."It's a game the fans want to win and one we want to win".

"Everybody who follows football knows how big this game is", Alderweireld said.

"It's so painful. It's a mistake that we made that at this level of football we can not repeat again". To arrive at Barcelona and compete in our best we need to have fresh legs, fresh minds, no injuries.

Jan Vertonghen, who played his first match for nearly two months against Inter after recovering from a hamstring injury is looking forward to the game.

But we can not play with 13 players.

'It is going to be another hard game, so we have to get right and physically prepared for it, because it is going to be another battle, ' the England worldwide said.

"There was a tough period for Moussa but I remember one day I hugged him when he was coming off and I told him, 'You are going to be a success here'".
