Far from being anxious about facing Barcelona, Harry Kane believes that Tottenham can beat the Catalans in their Champions League game on Wednesday at Wembley.

"Barcelona are a fantastic side but past year we proved we can beat the big teams, especially at home".

"He's set the standard".

"Messi sets the standard", Kane said. "As players you want to play against the best in the world and Messi is certainly that, a fantastic player, and we will do our best to stop him".

"It's very clear, very simple, we need to be near him when he gets the ball", he added. We are not victims, though. We need to produce that same energy, the crowd were incredible that night and if we can get them on their feet as soon as possible, create some chances and take one or two it would put us in a great position. "We must feel strong", Pochettino told a news conference on Tuesday. Every player must feel they can win and achieve what we want'.

Still, the Spurs boss is boosted by the return of goalkeeper Lloris for the Group B fixture in Europe, with the France worldwide available for selection after returning to training.
