Tottenham defender Danny Rose has warned Barcelona that Spurs can’t afford to lose their Champions League clash at Wembley on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered heartbreak in their opener against Inter Milan. They took the lead through Christian Eriksen, but two late goals condemned them to defeat.

Another defeat on Wednesday would put a huge dent in their hopes of qualifying for the knockout round, and Rose says they will be going for the win.

“It’s a massive game,” he said.

”We have to win. We’re fully aware of that. We’re all bitterly disappointed from how the Milan game finished and no mistakes, we have to win on Wednesday.”

Spurs face a Barcelona side that is having a bit of a wobble and have gone three games without a win in La Liga.

They did, however, kick off their Champions League campaign with a 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven and do have fond memories of Wembley Stadium of course.
