Many are of the opinion that Alderweireld and Trippier had some sort of altercation which led to both players being left out of the European tie.

There is no question that the pair were missed as Tottenham suffered a 2-1 defeat, and there was something strange about their absence.

It will be very interesting to see whether the pair return for the Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

And indeed whether Tottenham reveal the real reason for why they were not involved. Pochettino can call it a ‘technical decision’, but there is something more, according to a number of Spurs supporters.
