Tottenham paying for summer transfer window in the Champions League - Mauricio Pochettino

  • Mauricio Pochettino Plays Down Tottenham Hotspur

"We have big respect for Barcelona, one of the best teams in Europe".

"The form we're in right now, it's probably the ideal time to go there", he said."It's a game the fans want to win and one we want to win". We only need to show again a good level to compete at our best.

Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 win over Inter on Wednesday means they will go through at the expense of the Serie A side if they win their final Group B match away to Barcelona. To arrive at Barcelona and compete in our best we need to have fresh legs, fresh minds, no injuries. Demands are so tough.

Instead, we kept playing our football and when Sissoko and Dele teed up Eriksen in the 80th minute, that patience was duly rewarded with a fine victor to keep our Champions League aspirations alive. Every three days playing games is so tough - so tough for us but for our players so so hard.

Pochettino's relief was clear as he looked to the heavens and pumped his fists, but Tottenham still have one last daunting hurdle to overcome in Barcelona before they can celebrate a last 16 berth. Tottenham need to win to guarantee they will go through second - both they and Inter Milan are on seven points each, with the English side ahead if they end up level.

"I expect that they are going to play with all the best players, but I don't know how they are going to prepare the side", he added.

"What Barcelona do is not in our hands".

Spurs make the short trip to Arsenal on Sunday in the Premier League and it's the one fixture in the season that everyone in the squad would love to play.

The news comes as a boost for Tottenham, who need to beat Inter to have any hope of emerging from Group B, where they are now in third place behind Barcelona and the Italian side.

"All is possible in football", the Spurs manager said. We need to win the two games.

"It hasn't occurred to me that players like Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez could take their foot off the pedal or not care about losing at home".

"I remember a lot of players talking about winning the title, and it was only at the beginning and three points, like the others". "One thing I don't like in football is that rule".

"Now we are in a situation that depends on us", said Pochettino after the win.
