Tottenham team news ahead of Dinamo Zagreb clash
Tottenham take on Dinamo Zagreb in their first leg of the Round of 16 in the Europa League. Jose Mourinho’s men are in fine form with 4 wins on the trot in all competitions. They dispatched off a hapless Wolfsberger side by an 8-1 aggregate scoreline to progress into the round of 16.
Spurs have shown a marked improvement in recent games with their attack clicking rather well. They have also kept things tidy at the back. With Dinamo Zagreb set to visit Tottenham for the first leg, here are some injury updates (h/t Football.london).
The Ivorian has been missing from the team since the Fulham game. He is believed to have had a calf injury. However, Mourinho suggested that it was not a serious case but Aurier does not feel good about a muscular injury. While it was expected that he would play against Palace, it was Doherty who lined up. Aurier will again be expected to make it to the side this time.
While Bale isn’t injured per se, it is more the case about managing his minutes. The Welshman has been in sublime form, scoring 4 in his last 3 games. Mourinho is unsure about playing him twice or thrice in the same week. So we could see him playing a bit-part role.
