Reports have suggested Dembele's place at the club may not be secure, but Valverde praised his potential after the win while admitting expectations for the attacker are high. His is the shirt that children who dream of being footballers ask for", said Spalletti, "but Barcelona have shown that even without him, they still have the mentality to develop their game, which is what makes the difference.

He was initially ruled out for three weeks but returned to training after 10 days and is in contention to play against Inter. The fact that the team is doing well, in terms of performance and results, demonstrates that this is the chance to see if we really can compete against any side. "What is sure is that we won't take any risks".

Spalletti added: "He's a complete player, he needs to be evaluated carefully because he's had injuries, he can also be a defensive midfielder, that is where he started".

"He is happy to be with us again and it's good for us that he has travelled".

Suarez scored a hat-trick in last weekend's 5-1 thumping of bitter rivals Real Madrid and the Uruguayan concedes that Barca may have have underestimated their struggling opponents, who remain 19th.

"We organised ourselves in his absence".

Luis Suarez has stepped up in front of goal, scoring five goals in his last three appearances.

"Being in this situation in such a hard group is fine, and we would like to win".

Barca lead the group with nine points from three games followed by Inter on six while PSV Eindhoven and Tottenham have one point each.

"We must improve and be self-critical". We know we have to improve, but the important thing is the goal difference.
