The team will however be put to test in the UEFA champions League on Wednesday against the high flying German side Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the knockout stage.

Tottenham Hotspur will be without the England point men; Harry Kane and Dele Ali. A duo that have played integral roles in the present position of the team in the Premier League so far top the list of some others that would be sidelined.

Its however not insane to say the chances of getting through to the quarterfinal of the UCL is slim considering not only the injuries but also how Pochettino’s side side struggled in qualifying from group stage and the current form of the German Bundesliga table toppers.

Meanwhile, whatever the outcome is, it could be seen as blessing in disguise for the London side. Because dropping early from the Champions League ‘may’ give the opportunity to concentrate and get ahead of the Premier League table toppers since there are just few points separating them should Liverpool and Manchester City progresses.
