Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs' hectic fixture schedule is 'unfair'

LACHAMPIONS FCB | Roma- FC Barcelona

Striker Harry Kane, who scored seven goals in last season's Champions League campaign, did not seem daunted by the prospect of facing five-times Ballon d'Or victor Messi.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager is preparing his side to face the European giants in the Champions League on Wednesday. We need to produce that same energy, the crowd were unbelievable that night.

"I think him and (Cristiano) Ronaldo have gone above the normal standard set by people in years gone past", Kane said.

"We would have been teammates, and maybe I would have still been in Espanyol managing him!"

Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen will join Dele Alli in missing Tottenham's Champions League clash with Barcelona - but Hugo Lloris will start on Wednesday.

"He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and it motivates me to get even better", Kane said.

Tragically, Rishi Kapoor , who recently left for the USA for a medical treatment, couldn't be part of his mother's final journey. We've across with several photographs with a bunch of unseen photographs of Krishna Raj Kapoor with her family members.

'We are not victims though.

Hoping to add to Barca's problems, Kane says Tottenham will draw on the memories of last season's stunning 3-1 Wembley win over Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages. "We must feel strong", Pochettino told a news conference on Tuesday. "50-60 goals a season, as a striker I want to try to match that and do the same". That is completely unfair for a team that wants to win some titles.

Argentina's Messi now holds multiple scoring records, including the most goals in a calendar year.

Nearly ten years on, and four years since he took charge at White Hart Lane, Pochettino has proved to be the change that Tottenham Hotspur can believe...

The Londoners last won a trophy in 2008 in the form of the League Cup and a major criticism of Spurs under Pochettino is that they are yet to lift silverware.
