Harry Kane against Barcelona

Barcelona seem to be in a bit of a conundrum regarding which players should be selected in the coming week. Tottenham face the Catalan side in their final Champions League group game, and we have to defeat the La Liga side to make it into the knockout round.

Spurs will be buoyed by another Barcelona player being ruled out of the clash as Malcom is expected to be out for 10 to 15 days with a sprained ankle.

The 21-year-old hasn’t played too many games for the Catalan side this season but he did score in the Champions League against Inter Milan.

The Brazilian could have played a few minutes against us in midweek, but this is certainly another boost for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

We need all the help we can get as we have to defeat the La Liga giants at the Nou Camp. Tottenham did part of their job by defeating Inter Milan in the previous Champions League game, and if we match the Italian’s result against PSV, we will make it into the next round.

The likes of Luis Suarez, Sergi Roberto and Arthur have small knocks while Rafinha and Samuel Umtiti are out for a considerable amount of time.

We still have to be wary of the likes of Lionel Messi, and we need to keep the Argentine in check on 11 December.
