Alli and Trippier miss Dortmund clash
Tottenham will be without key duo Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier for the Champions League last-16 second-leg trip to Borussia Dortmund.
The England international duo have been left in London as Alli continues his recovery from an ongoing hamstring injury, while full-back Trippier has a "slight problem", according to boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Midfield pair Harry Winks and Eric Dier have travelled but might only be fit for the bench following their recovery from a hip injury and tonsillitis respectively.
Spurs have a 3-0 first-leg lead in a European tie for the first time since 2013 when they ended up needing an extra-time goal from Emmanuel Adebayor to scrape through the second leg against Inter Milan.
And Pochettino is demanding that his side go on the front foot against Lucien Favre's side.
"We need to play like always we play, trying to win, that is important," he said.
"We need to forget the first leg, it's important to be aggressive, fight from the beginning, high tempo, that is going to be the key.
"We know Borussia Dortmund is a great team, top of the Bundesliga because they deserve to be there.
"It's going to be tough. They will start game aggressive and try to push us deeper.
"We need to show the same aggressiveness, play our way. Winning 3-0 at Wembley is not important."
