Vincent Janssen and Erik Lamela are the two notable absentees from Tottenham Hotspur's squad for Champions League games against Borussia Dortmund, APOEL and Real Madrid.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has decided against including Vincent Janssen and Erik Lamela in his Champions League squad.

The Lilywhites submitted their 25-man list to UEFA on Monday afternoon ahead of group-stage games against Borussia Dortmund, APOEL and Real Madrid over the next three months.

Out-of-favour Janssen, who reportedly rejected a deadline-day move to Brighton & Hove Albion, is one of two notable absentees from the squad along with injured midfielder Lamela.

Following an 11-month spell on the sidelines with a hip injury, Lamela has only recently returned to outdoor training and appears unlikely to be up to full speed before the end of the year.

Harry Winks and Kyle Walker-Peters also miss out on inclusion, but due to their age they can be added at a later date as part of the 'B list'.
