Tottenham vs Internazionale, Champions League

  • Unai Emery and Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham can still qualify for the Champions League knockout rounds according to Mauricio Pochettino, who believes his side's 1-0 victory over Internazionale has changed the dynamic of their group ahead of the crucial final round of fixtures.

The games are coming thick and fast for Pochettino's side and no sooner were the points in the bag against Inter - courtesy of substitute Christian Eriksen's late victor - than he was switching his thoughts to Arsenal. Three games in a week is going to be tough, but confidence is high.

Another man who will not be included in the line up is Juan Foyth. The Argentine centre-back had started Spurs' last three games in the absence of Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen.

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

"To arrive in that way in Barcelona we need to manage and we need to rotate the squad". Of course now that is the problem and it's so painful to have players out of the list.

"We're playing Champions League and the cup against Arsenal at the Emirates".

"But, of course, in the Champions League, no one is going to give a present and play and not care about the result".

"All is possible in football", the Spurs manager said. Harry Kane, the captain, insists that Spurs will head to Catalonia with "all guns blazing" while Pochettino said that victories over Chelsea and Inter had given his players conviction that they could pull off a famous result.

Fellow full-back Trippier has also been nursing his own groin issue recently and although he won't be in contention to face Inter Milan, the right-back is in the final stages of his rehabilitation so he shouldn't be on the sidelines for too much longer. Luciano Spalletti's side dismantled Frosinone 3-0 at the San Siro with Keita Balde scoring either side of Lautaro Martinez's 57th-minute goal.

With Wembley as cavernous as ever, Spurs quite simply had to beat their Italian opponents to avoid being buffeted out of the competition.

Tottenham must still beat Barcelona on December 11 at the Camp Nou to make sure of advancing to the knockout phase.

Should Spurs beat Inter, however, a point would confirm the La Liga champions as Group B winners.
