Tottenham Hotspur have dramatically improved both their form and their results over recent weeks, now boasting a three game winning streak, but they are now facing huge problems with injuries.
Spurs confirmed today through Twitter that six first team stars would miss the Champions League clash against Barcelona tomorrow night.
Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Serge Aurier and Michel Vorm will all be unavailable for the game at Wembley.
In positive news, captain Hugo Lloris is confirmed to be starting the match in goal for Spurs, with Gazzaniga dropping to the bench.
Barcelona are also missing three first team players themselves, and are currently on a streak of three games without a single win.
Tottenham will be hoping to get three points from the home fixture, despite injuries, after they lost away to Inter Milan in game week one.
Spurs led 1-0 with 85 minutes gone, but let in two late goals to see all three points snatched away. Barca won their first game against PSV 4-0.
