Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli will not play Wednesday against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, according to the BBC. The midfielder has a recurring hamstring problem and his return date is unclear. Jan Vertonghen and Moussa Dembélé were taken off at halftime in Spur’s win on Huddersfield yesterday, though it remains to be seen if they have muscular injures.

Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama came on at halftime during that match and both could be starters against the blaugrana.

Tottenham are looking to get back into winning ways in Europe after an opening group stage loss against Inter Milan. Barcelona, for their part, only salvaged a 1-1 draw against Athletic Club Bilbao today, but they did win their first group stage match against PSV Eindhoven at the Camp Nou.
