Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele set to be rested by Tottenham for Europa League clash with Borussia Dortmund
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hinted he will rest midfield duo Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele for tomorrow’s Europa League tie against Borussia Dortmund.
Spurs need to overturn a three-goal deficit to qualify for the last-eight of the competition and are set to field a stronger side than they did in Germany last week.
However, with the Premier League title race in mind, Pochettino is set to leave out Eriksen and Dembele, who didn’t train with the rest of the squad on Wednesday.
“There are no big issues but maybe they’re not going to be available for tomorrow,” said Pochettino.
“Eriksen needs a rest and maybe Dembele does too.”
