Tottenham Hotspur released team news ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League match against Dortmund at Wembley Stadium, and thankfully there isn’t anything here that we don’t already know.

Spurs reported on their social media channels and on their website that Dele Alli is set to miss the first of three European matches through suspension after picking up a straight red card in Spurs’ final Europa League game against Gent last season.

Elsewhere, the club announced that Erik Lamela is still injured (though it hardly matters since he was not listed to Tottenham’s Champions League squad), as is Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose, and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.

None of this is surprising, and Spurs fan can take solace in the fact that there aren’t any other players who have picked up injuries in the past few days. That means that Spurs are likely to run out a very strong team from the players they have available. Hopefully that will be enough against a Dortmund side that is without seven players due to injury, including their club captain Marcel Schmelzer, Marco Reus, Andre Schurrle, and Marc Bartra.
