Spurs face a gruelling trip to Moscow and back this week, before taking on Manchester City on Saturday, and they need a result after losing their first group game to Monaco.

Both Eric Dier and Danny Rose are said to be fit but both have missed recent games and Pochettino must decide whether to risk them in Russia. Dier missed the win at Middlesbrough with a knock as did Rose who has been out with a hamstring problem but both are now said to be fit to go.

Moussa Sissoko has possible concussion and is a doubt for both Tuesday and next Saturday against City.

“Moussa is a doubt for Saturday. He has a possible concussion,” the Argentine manager said.

“We will assess Moussa.

“We have some players like Erik Dier and Danny Rose who are very close to fitness, and we have to see whether we will take some risks of not.”
