Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League campaign got off to an almost perfect start with a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Matchday One.

The only downside was a late sending off for Jan Vertonghen, which means he will miss their next continental match against APOEL Nicosia in Cyprus on Tuesday evening.

That could mean Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino considers a change in formation, or considers the inexperienced Juan Foyth to come into the team again.

Yet with APOEL a minnow in the group, it may be the best chance the Argentine gets to get any European action.

Dele Alli will also miss the match through suspension, while Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are also all out through long-term injuries.

Mousa Dembélé is also doubtful due to a recurring ankle issue.

Pochettino may also consider resting Harry Kane to give Fernando Llorente a rare start since his move from Swansea City.
