Tottenham facing injury crisis ahead of Barcelona Champions League game

Tottenham are facing a number of injury worries ahead of their Champions League game against Barcelona with Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Serge Aurier all missing training on Tuesday.

Dele Alli and Michel Vorm are already ruled out due to hamstring and knee injuries respectively, while Eriksen, who was unable to face Huddersfield on Saturday due to an abdomen problem, did not recover in time to train ahead of Wednesday's match.

Vorm will return to training later in the week but the rest will be missing until after the international break.

Aurier also missed the game at Huddersfielddue to a thigh injury and, although he was spotted working by himself on Tuesday, his inability to practise with the rest of the squad takes him out of contention.

Vertonghen and Dembele were both forced off at half-time at Huddersfield. Vertonghen has a hamstring injury while Dembele missed Wednesday's session after suffering a kick last Saturday.

Young centre-back Juan Foyth and winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou trained with the squad but are unable to face Barcelona because they have not been registered in Tottenham's squad for the Champions League group stage.

Spurs captain and No. 1 goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was also on the practice pitch ahead of Wednesday's match, and will be available to return having missed the last six games with a thigh injury.
