Second-place Inter Milan can qualify for the knockout stages with a win at Wembley.

After taking one point from their opening three matches, Tottenham had scored twice in the last 12 minutes to avoid an early exit against PSV Eindhoven earlier this month.

Should Spurs beat Inter, however, a point would confirm the La Liga champions as Group B winners.

Christian Eriksen's 80th-minute victor means that Spurs travel to Barcelona on 11 December knowing that a win will be enough to see them through to the round of 16, whatever Inter manage against PSV Eindhoven.

That won't be easy against Lionel Messi and company, but Pochettino has faith.

"It's a mistake we made, that at this level of football we can not repeat", Pochettino said, as reported by the BBC. We have big respect to Barcelona, they are one of the best teams in Europe, it will be so tough. "And now we're going to play another game that we must win". "We need to arrive that way in Barcelona".

"I remember a lot of players talking about winning the title, and it was only at the beginning and three points, like the others".

"We know it is more than a game for both clubs and for both [sets of] fans", Lloris told Sky Sports.

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

However, the Italians are far from indestructible and have already shown they can be beaten.

Pochettino said: "I'm so disappointed from the beginning because it's not only him but Georges-Kevin N'Koudou and Vincent Janssen are out of the squad in the Champions League and that's so painful".

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

"It's going to be massive", he said.

"But they have not played anything like they did the season before".

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.

The hard work in the lead-up to the goal was done by Moussa Sissoko, driving down the right flank and cutting past Inter players before squaring to Dele Alli.
