'It's so painful' - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reveals his Champions League agony

Both men are back in training, but neither have been given the all-clear to get involved in this game.

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.

Pochettino is also expecting a big performance from England global midfielder Dele Alli, saying the 22-year-old plays his best football when the stakes are highest.

Instead, we kept playing our football and when Sissoko and Dele teed up Eriksen in the 80th minute, that patience was duly rewarded with a fine victor to keep our Champions League aspirations alive.

On his side's chances of progression, which is also highly likely to require a win in Barcelona next month, he added: "It is going to give us hope or give us a different reality that we can not fight to get through". To arrive at Barcelona and compete in our best we need to have fresh legs, fresh minds, no injuries.

"He is a person who loves the football, he loves to work and he tries to show it for the players", Moura said of Emery.

Arnautovic has scored five goals and made one assist in 11 Premier League games so far this season.

"We need to approach the game in the best way and believe that we can win".

"Inter came to defend, they knew one point would be better than losing", Eriksen said, "and playing against Italian sides you don't have many chances".

"This game this weekend is a bigger game for Arsenal than Tottenham, that is how it has swung really", Merson told The Debate.

Luciano Spalletti has already indicated that he is not expecting Tottenham to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

"What Barcelona is going to do is not in our hands".

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

"It's going to be very competitive but of course they're qualified in first with 13 points".

A victory in the north London derby at the Emirates on Sunday would cap an outstanding week for Spurs following impressive victories over Chelsea and Inter over the last few days.

"I like to think about the four years when I was very happy there and I won a lot of trophies".
