Alli out of Barcelona clash but Pochettino to assess Vertonghen, Dembele injuries

1:19                                            Pochettino says who he thinks are the best golfers within his team ahead of the Ryder Cup

He missed England's friendly against Switzerland and was unavailable for Tottenham's subsequent two matches, the Premier League match game with Liverpool and Champions League fixture against Inter Milan, which they both narrowly lost. "It was a tough game against a team desperate to win".

"The circumstances of this season, it's a massive challenge for everyone, not just us", said Pochettino.

Asked how long the midfielder would be absent, the coach said: "I don't know".

"The teams that had players in the World Cup are going to have a problem with this type of thing, now and in the future of course. The attitude was fantastic", Pochettino said. "It's important to be relaxed and calm". Who cares about the players? "I repeat, the players are not machines".

"It's part of the game - when you go up against teams they try to stop you and don't want to make it easy. And no one helps, but we are warned before every single game to play the same players".

Tottenham's star striker scored 13 goals in eight games during September a year ago, but had managed just one in six before Saturday's visit to the John Smith's Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he was very pleased with his side's performance as Tottenham ran out comfortable 2-0 winners over Huddersfield at the Kirklees Stadium. "I'm sure it will be a completely different game on Wednesday (against Barcelona)".

England worldwide striker Harry Kane scored both goals for Spurs, finding the target first in the 25th minute and then from the penalty spot on 34 minutes. But I think today the atmosphere was the most wonderful atmosphere in England. I can't tell you what he said but he was very good.

'It's hard to stand here and say the same things every week because in the end we need points, we do, ' Lossl said. Huddersfield are bottom of the Premier League, having managed only one league goal at home since February 11, but head coach David Wagner is confident they are playing well enough to move up the table.
