No surprises in Tottenham injury report ahead of Dortmund match

No surprises in Tottenham injury report ahead of Dortmund match

Mauricio Pochettino has described Tottenham's opening Champions League fixture against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley tomorrow night, as "the most important game for us".

Spurs are joined by Real Madrid and Cypriot side APOEL as well as Dortmund in Group H.

Spurs are still to truly convince at their temporary home and Dortmund will be keen to exploit any lingering anxiety within Mauricio Pochettino's camp. It will be tough because Dortmund is a great, great team, but our mentality is to try to win and be aggressive from the first ball.

Attack: Tottenham will be without one of their key men as Dele Alli starts a three-match European suspension following his dismissal against Gent in the Europa League last season.

They have also struggled to establish themselves in home league games at Wembley this season with a loss to Chelsea and draw against Burnley.

"When you are here, the Premier League is the main competition for every player", the Argentine told a news conference on Tuesday.

Dortmund have their own Wembley pain to soothe as they return to the stadium that played host to the most painful loss in their history. "Now, it is important for Tottenham's season to get their first win at Wembley", he added.

"We've got to play our game".

Dortmund, then managed by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, have bad memories of the Wembley ground after they were denied their first Champions League triumph by German rivals Bayern Munich in the 2013 final. "It was a very painful experience because we couldn't be at the level we needed to be, but now that's not an excuse". "But fortunately we have a fantastic squad and I'm sure whoever comes in will be ready to compete on the big stage", Kane said.

"I saw Spurs' win over Everton at the weekend and he was fantastic in midfield, creating chances and dictating play".
