Tottenham's big guns missing for visit of Barcelona

"I think him and (Cristiano) Ronaldo have gone above the normal standard set by people in years gone past", Kane said. When you're scoring as many goals as he is - 40, 50 or 60 goals a season - as a striker, I want to try and match that.

But the visit of Barcelona also gives him the opportunity to pit himself against the player that he describes as an inspiration and a benchmark.

As a player, Pochettino turned out for Newell's Old Boys, Espanyol, Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux, and revealed he would like to coach where he began in the game.

And to achieve that goal, they will need England captain Kane at his lethal best.

"We don't want to start with two defeats and we know that Barcelona is a big challenge, but in our stadium we must be strong and look forward".

High surf up to 10 feet and rip currents will begin along southern California coast Sunday, the hurricane center said. Thus, it's expected to make landfall in Mexico at tropical storm strength in the afternoon or evening on Monday.

"We've got to prove we can beat the best teams in the world and we need to do that against Barcelona".

However, Pochettino blames Fabio Capello for disrupting the move, saying the former Juventus boss' decision to praise Messi after a dazzling display in the Joan Gamper Cup encouraged Barca to hold on to the La Masia graduate. "We need to demand sacrifice and they will expend a lot of energy", Pochettino said.

"We would have been team-mates, and maybe I would have still been in Espanyol managing him".

Dele Alli (hamstring), Serge Aurier (thigh), Mousa Dembele (thigh), Christian Eriksen (abdomen) and Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) will all be out until after this month's global break.

Progress to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup means they will travel to rivals West Ham United on either Wednesday or Thursday of that week, before facing Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday November 3 and hosting PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League three days later.
