Tottenham confirmed on Tuesday that Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Serge Aurier and Mousa Dembele will all miss their Champions League clash with Barcelona.

Dele Alli has already been ruled out of the game due to injury, although goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has returned to training after a few weeks out and should feature.

The team news is a big blow for Spurs who were beaten 2-1 by Inter Milan in their opening group game and are in need of a good result at Wembley.
