Tottenham Hotspur team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Borussia Dortmund

Sports Mole looks at the latest injury and suspension news for Tottenham Hotspur ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.

Mauricio Pochettino will continue his bid to win his first trophy as Tottenham Hotspur manager on Wednesday night when his team host Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Spurs recorded just one point from their first three group-stage fixtures, but two wins and a draw in the second half of the campaign secured the runners-up spot behind Barcelona.

The North London outfit have not produced their best form on the domestic front since the start of 2019, but three successive wins have been registered in the Premier League.

The latest of those came on Sunday afternoon as Spurs overcame a valiant effort from Leicester City to prevail by a 3-1 scoreline at Wembley Stadium.

Here, Sports Mole looks at Spurs’ latest injury and suspension news ahead of their showdown with the Bundesliga leaders.
