Jan Vertonghen set to make Tottenham comeback in Champions League

"I'm sure they always give their best and play to win every game they play".

While Tottenham and Inter are level on seven points, the London club is now up into second place by virtue of Eriksen's goal in the reverse fixture in September.

"Barcelona are one of the best teams in Europe and they have unbelievable players", said Pochettino.

Argentinian Foyth is not part of Tottenham's Champions League squad while his fellow centre back Davinson Sanchez, who is eligible to play, has a hamstring problem, so Vertonghen's return is well timed. It was starting to get tense and there was a feeling the all-important goal wasn't going to come as the clock ticked down, but we didn't panic, didn't get frustrated.

UEFA has said the Wembley Stadium pitch is fit for Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League clash against Inter Milan on Wednesday, but sources say European football's governing body is disappointed by the appearance of the worn-out turf. To arrive at Barcelona and compete in our best we need to have fresh legs, fresh minds, no injuries.

Spurs' inability to move any of their foreign players out in turn meant they had to target homegrown talent, which saw them become the first team in Premier League history not to sign anyone during the summer transfer window.

Inter boss Luciano Spalletti still expects they will advance if they beat PSV because Barca are so formidable at home. It will be so tough but we have...

"What Barcelona is going to do is not in our hands".

"As long as we do our job I think we will go through. But now we need to focus on Arsenal on Sunday - another massive game for us".

Because Spurs are ahead on head to head record, they need only to match Inter's outcome in the final round of games.

'When you are injured you realise how blessed you are when you are fit and I prefer it this way than to be sitting on the touchline for a couple of weeks, ' he said.

"The most important is to try to avoid risk, to mix ... and rotate", Pochettino said.
