Monday’s training session was the final one before tonight’s all important Champions League game against the unpredictable Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs are the unknown quantity here – to put it mildly.
Barca are maybe defensively suspect, Spurs are still operating with dysfunctional midfield.
Provisional Barca squad: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, I. Rakitic, Sergio, Denis Suárez, Coutinho, Arthur, Suárez, Messi, O. Dembélé, Cillessen, Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Munir, Vidal, Vermaelen, Aleñá and Miranda.
I’ll be watching Hugo Lloris this evening – this is not the time for an ‘off’ night.
