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

Pochettino believes Spurs can win at the Camp Nou to progress from Group B

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

As it stands, Spurs are second in the group, level with Inter on seven points but ahead on head to head record (that's how sides finishing level on points are separated).

Sunday's game marks the first occasion in which Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery have faced off in the Premier League although they did meet in La Liga when in charge of Espanyol and Valencia respectively. "Of course, they have unbelievable players and it'll be so tough, but one thing we have is our belief and faith we can win", he said. Eriksen scored in the 80th minute to seal a 1-0 victory at Wembley Stadium that leaves Tottenham's fate in its own hands heading into the Group B finale at Barcelona.

Therefore Barca's game against Spurs is crucial - and the Catalans have gone longer than five years without losing a Champions League game at home.

Pochettino is also expecting a big performance from England global midfielder Dele Alli, saying the 22-year-old plays his best football when the stakes are highest.

"We know it is more than a game for both clubs and for both [sets of] fans", Lloris told Sky Sports.

'I think we can beat everyone if we're on it. "Against Chelsea and then against Inter, two big teams, we've shown that we can get a very high level".

"Now everyone has seen he is doing fantastic", Pochettino said.

"If Tottenham play like they did last weekend against Chelsea, they can not lose".

That success in Europe keeps their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive, although they have to go to Barcelona in a fortnight's time and match the result of Inter, who hostPSV Eindhoven.

"We need to approach the game in the best way and believe that we can win".

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.

"The most important is to try to avoid risk, to mix ... and rotate", Pochettino said. Maybe we need to change to rolling subs, like basketball, so you can go in and out.
