Arthur delivers on his huge promise as Barcelona pass their Tottenham test

Kane penalty

Spurs rallied in the second half, briefly rattling Barcelona, but Messi scored twice, hit the post twice and the home fans applauded him. "Every player must feel they can win and achieve what we want".

Spurs will have to take on Barcelona without Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen, who have joined Dele Alli on a growing casualty list.

Spurs have now lost their opening two games in Group B to fall six points behind Barca and Inter Milan and were left to rue a slow start.

Messi put matters to rest just before full-time after a bad giveaway from the Tottenham defence left the Barca talisman alone with only Lloris to beat and he made no mistake, tucking the ball into the bottom right corner to seal the points.

"But for me the most important thing was that in the second half we played and we showed character".

The report added that Gerard Pique criticized Messi for not facing the media about the club in Barcelona but only when he is in Argentina.

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has just scored an absolute belter against Spurs in the Champions League tonight, putting the Catalan giants two-nil up in the first 45 minutes.

Back at the scene of his 2011 Champions League final triumph, Lionel Messi delivered another display of artistry at Wembley Stadium.

'When you start a game at this level against Barcelona you can not concede these types of chances. Not one. In the second half, with a lot of space, it is unbelievable how he runs. He has five goals in two UCL games this season, at a rate of one goal every 36 minutes.

But the problem was that Tottenham's front four - especially the advanced midfield trio of Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Son Heung-min - allowed themselves to be bypassed so easily. Then you would have said we are heroes and the manager is the best in the world'.

"With all respect to other players who have won it [Ballon d'Or], we know there is a player who is different to the others and that is Leo Messi", Rakitic said post-game.

"It's never easy to be an away team in the Champions League and even less so against a team like Tottenham". "But we solved them". "We're still thinking the same, though, that all is possible".
