FC Barcelona - Champions League - 3 October 2018

Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham's gameplan to deal with Barcelona was "destroyed" by Hugo Lloris' early mistake at Wembley.

Spurs twice rallied, making it 2-1 and then 3-2 and almost equalising with a deflected Lucas Moura effort, but Lionel Messi's 90th-minute strike - his second goal of the night - ended Spurs' hopes. Went the Barca forward is on his game there's literally no better player than him in the world and he can win a game seemingly on his own.

And in their last game, the Catalan giants were held 1-1 by Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou in which Lionel Messi only came on in the second half and was unable to net the winning goal.

On the first match back at Wembley Stadium since Anthony Joshua defeated Alexander Povetkin, the portion of the pitch given over to the general area inhabited by the boxing ring appeared to be far from what one would normally expect of Spurs' adopted home.

"He was a starter in an important game, but I would prefer to talk about the general performance of the team, in which he played his part". In the second half.

Theresa May has declared that Britain's decade of austerity is over with a pledge to increase public spending after Brexit. And she warned she was ready to take further action against utility firms which punish loyal customers with higher prices.

"Messi sets the standard", Kane said.

"For 45 minutes, we didn't concede one chance to Messi - but of course when we are 2-0 down and you give more space as we are attacking", Pochettino said. Spurs could not get near him and he left the watching crowd gasping twice within the space of five minutes as two nearly identical efforts struck the same portion of Lloris's right-hand post.

They were obviously saving themselves for this game. The pressure was relentless and Barcelona's finishing was ruthless.

The Catalan giants got off to a ideal start as an error in judgment from Hugo Lloris allowed Jordi Alba to pick out Philippe Coutinho for the simple tap-in. In defence, Pochettino goes with Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez.

The confirmation process to appoint Kavanaugh has been delayed over allegations that he engaged in sexual misconduct decades ago. Bromwich is responding to comments made by the president earlier Tuesday night at a political rally in Mississippi.

Now Barca looks to have a foot into the next round, but Spurs are in trouble.

A serious question was also raised against the BEST Awards.

A great start for Barcelona, what Lloris had in mind will remain a mystery. It was a signal of intent from a team that has watched Real Madrid, its chief rival, win three consecutive Champions League crowns since their most recent European triumph, in 2015.

"Our players were heroes because they were chasing the game against Messi, Suarez, Coutinho and Co".

They have a tough job to get out of the group now with both Barca and Inter having six points on the board. Victor Waynama and Harry Winks will look to control midfield, while Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son support Harry Kane.

Kavanaugh has denied claims of sexual misconduct by three different women - Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January.

Losing Eriksen, Alli, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen through injury ahead of such a big night was a cruel blow for Pochettino. We played with the handicap of conceding after one minute.
