UEFA is not happy with the aesthetics of the pitch, which has bumps and patches of mud, but is satisfied enough for the game to go ahead.

While they moved into second in Group B, Tottenham visit Barcelona on matchday six, while Inter - who are level on points with Spurs - host PSV.

Back in the Champions League after seven years, Inter has the easier task against PSV, which are already guaranteed to finish last in the group and has nothing to play for.

When pushed on his bold comments about winning in Barcelona, he said: "All is possible in football". "We have big respect for Barcelona, one of the best in Europe with unbelievable players". To arrive at Barcelona and compete in our best we need to have fresh legs, fresh minds, no injuries.

"Of course we have to show again a great level and compete at our best. But we have belief and faith that we can win", Pochettino said.

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.

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi received on Monday, Nov. 26 Bin Salman upon his arrival at Cairo International Airport. Saudi authorities have blamed the killing on lower-ranking officials who they say exceeded their authority.

Spurs play Arsenal twice in the space of a fortnight as they come up against each other in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

Defeats in Italy and at home to Barcelona to begin their Champions League group have left the Londoners up against it in order to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition, and to have any chance of progressing they must win when the San Siro side head to London.

Pochettino's side will go out if they fail to beat the Italian side at Wembley. But of course it will be so hard and we need to focus now on Sunday - another derby against Arsenal. "But I would like to change that mentality in football of 'why play one and not another?"

"I can not play with 13 players", he said.

"Now everyone has seen he is doing fantastic", Pochettino said. He broke through the Inter midfield and into the box, squaring the ball to Dele who helped it on to Eriksen and he made no mistake from 12 yards out.

"The most important thing is to try and avoid risk, to mix the team, make all players feel important".
