Tottenham vs Internazionale, Champions League

Tottenham vs Internazionale, Champions League

While Tottenham and Inter are level on seven points, the London club is now up into second place by virtue of Eriksen's goal in the reverse fixture in September.

The Gunners are now on an 18-game unbeaten run under the stewardship of Unai Emery and have already sealed their progress to the next round of the Europa League.

"The form we're in right now, it's probably the flawless time to go there", he said."It's a game the fans want to win and one we want to win". Eriksen scored in the 80th minute to seal a 1-0 victory at Wembley Stadium that leaves Tottenham's fate in its own hands heading into the Group B finale at Barcelona.

Barca have not lost a home game in the Champions League for five years yet the Spurs boss says his players should head to Catalonia full of confidence.

"So this game will be a good measure of how far they have come - they played some big teams earlier in the season and fell short".

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

"I expect that they are going to play with all the best players, but I don't know how they are going to prepare the side", he added. We need to win the two games.

"I think we can beat everyone if we're on it".

'When you are injured you realise how blessed you are when you are fit and I prefer it this way than to be sitting on the touchline for a couple of weeks, ' he said.

"Everything is fine with Radja and there was no issue between us at the time of his substitution", said Spalletti.

That success in Europe keeps their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive, although they have to go to Barcelona in a fortnight's time and match the result of Inter, who hostPSV Eindhoven.

At last unlocking the stubborn Inter defence, a sweeping move featured Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli exchanging passes before Eriksen was teed up for a cool finish from 10 yards out. "They're not going to have one day off until January". "We need to change like basketball so players can go in and out".

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