Messi is having to shoulder greater responsibility as the captainANDREU DALMAU EPA
Mauricio Pochettino certainly called it when, the day before his side met Barcelona at Wembley, the Tottenham manager admitted he could not find a solution for dealing with Lionel Messi and that he just told his players to relish the experience of facing against arguably football's greatest-ever player.
"Those who play football understand completely that if you start that way in this type of game, in a Champions League game against a team like Barcelona, you can not concede these types of chances". He hit the post twice with near identical efforts at the start of the second half and it was one of those nights where the 31-year-old proved, once again, why he's the best player on the planet. Marc-Andre ter Stegen came up with a big save in the first half and, generally speaking, you can assume they'd still win plenty of games even if they conceded an average of one per game due to the prowess of their attack.
Ahead of the game Harry Kane was ridiculed for saying he'd like to score more goals than Lionel Messi.
Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic fired Barca into a two-goal lead at the break as the La Liga champions looked to bounce back from a three-game winless run.
Spurs pushed hard for the equaliser and almost had it in the 84th minute when Lucas Moura broke free in the Barcelona area only to see his shot from 8 yards out deflect off Lenglet and out of touch.
Aston Villa sack manager Steve Bruce
Steve Bruce has been sacked as Aston Villa manager less than five months after leading them to the Championship play-off final. Both Martin and Michael O'Neill have been linked with Aston Villa job following the sacking of Steve Bruce on Wednesday.
"We can't talk about topics, we need to talk about reality". He started the move, playing the ball out wide to Jordi Alba, whose cross was dummied by Coutinho and Luis Suarez before arriving on Messi's left foot. I'm not going to complain about the pitch. What can we do?
It was also just their second win away from home in their last eight Champions League games on the road, with the performance prompting the suggestion they're prioritising European success this season.
Barcelona have six points to top the group as they lead Inter Milan on goal differential, while Tottenham have it all to do if they are to reach the last 16 having lost their opening two matches.
"We've got another game around the corner, so we'll recover and see where we went wrong". "We still think the same - that all is possible".
