Tottenham Hotspur severely weakened ahead of Champions League clash with Barcelona

first_imgThe Daily Star reported today about immense injury problems Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona are going through ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League encounter.After suffering a frustrating 2-1 defeat to Inter Milan on the opening matchday, the Spurs are obliged to achieve a positive result against the Catalans, but it’s going far from simple, considering six first-team members will skip the match.Apart from the second-choice goalkeeper Michel Vorm, Jan Vertonghen, Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen are all set to remain on the stands due to various physical problems.The only positive thing for Mauricio Pochettino is the return of Hugo Lloris, who will be ready to take the field from the first minute according to some reports.🗣️ Mauricio on injuries: “We have players with different injuries – it’s not a pattern that happens from something specific. We are not victims though – we must feel strong. Every player must feel they can win and achieve what we want.”#COYS pic.twitter.com/EkOaRW2pcr— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 2, 2018David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa?
