Tottenham's big guns missing for visit of Barcelona

Tottenham's big guns missing for visit of Barcelona

However manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is available and will play after recovering from a thigh injury.

However, Tottenham will be without Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Mossa Dembele, Serge Aurier and Dele Alli, making a difficult game against the European giants even harder.

Kane, 25, will line up against Messi on Wednesday when Spurs host Barcelona at Wembley in Group B of the Champions League.

The World Cup victor missed his side's Champions League opener, as they let slip a one-goal advantage in the closing stages to lose 2-1 to Inter in Milan.

Barcelona have fond memories of Wembley having won the Champions League there in 1992 and 2011, but Kane is looking to ensure they don't make it a hat-trick of wins at the iconic venue. If we leave him space he will get away from his marker. "This is Barca. We have enough players, we don't need to depend on one".

"The evolution of the team is there and everyone can appreciate that and see it", Pochettino said.

The positivity of the Argentine coach, who managed Spanish side Espanyol from 2009-12, has filtered down to his squad.

Harry Kane was back among the goals after scoring twice during the victory at Huddersfield on Saturday and the England worldwide will be a key player if Tottenham are to get a positive result tomorrow. He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and he still is.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi continue to set the bar, and Kane believes that's a motivating factor. When you're scoring as many goals as he is - 40, 50 or 60 goals a season - as a striker, I want to try and match that.

England captain Kane has been the Premier League's top scorer for two of the last three seasons and won the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
