Now we need to show tomorrow that we are in a very good way and use the Chelsea performance as an example. "It will be tough [to win at Barcelona] but the belief is so important".

"We need fresh legs, fresh mind and no injuries".

Content to defend deep for long periods, Inter's safety-first game-plan was nearly undone when Harry Winks curled a superb effort against the bar from 25 yards.

Barcelona face Tottenham in the final Group B Champions League match already confirmed as group winners.

'It is going to be another hard game, so we have to get right and physically prepared for it, because it is going to be another battle, ' the England global said.

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.

"I expect they'll play with the best players but I don't know how they'll prepare the game", he told a news conference. "He's going to play of course and he's showed great quality, but I'm disappointed that we can not come with him in the Champions League".

How much for that app? U.S. top court hears Apple antitrust dispute
Roberts expressed concern that, for a single price increase, Apple could be held liable by both consumers and App developers. Part of the concern, the court said in that case, was to free judges from having to make complex calculations of damages.

"They have a good energy and they have had some very good results in the last few weeks so it is going to be a very good game for both teams".

The news comes as a boost for Tottenham, who need to beat Inter to have any hope of emerging from Group B, where they are now in third place behind Barcelona and the Italian side.

UEFA has said the Wembley Stadium pitch is fit for Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League clash against Inter Milan on Wednesday, but sources say European football's governing body is disappointed by the appearance of the worn-out turf.

"We need to approach the game in the best way and believe that we can win". "One thing I don't like in football is that rule".

"If you have time, I think you need to see our fixtures".

From then Barca have played 28 games at home, 26 wins and two draws.

So far, Danny Welbeck, Nacho Monreal and Konstantinos Mavropanos are the only players who are unavailable for selection which means a number of first-team players could have some rest.
