Tottenham have revealed their travelling squad ahead of their Champions League group stage clash with Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday night.

Spurs take on Belgrade at the Partizan Stadium tomorrow and the club have posted a video on social media showing the squad boarding the plane ahead of their flight to Serbia this afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino has been handed a major boost as Harry Kane could be back in contention as the striker was spotted making the flight today after missing the 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday afternoon due to illness.

Heung-min Son has also made the trip despite being left distraught following his sending off for a challenge on Andre Gomes that led to the Everton midfielder suffering a nasty broken ankle at the weekend.

However, it appears Jan Vertonghen remains out as the centre-back wasn’t seen in the video boarding the plane after missing the draw at Goodison Park on Sunday due to a thigh problem.

Erik Lamela was also not spotted among the travelling squad so he seems to still be nursing a thigh injury while Serge Aurier, Victor Wanyama and Kyle Walker-Peters were also notable absentees from the players who boarded the flight today.

Obviously there is a chance any of the five players may have travelled but just didn’t appear in the footage but 20 players were shown boarding the plane and Pochettino can only select an 18-man matchday squad tomorrow night.

The other significant absentee is Hugo Lloris as the Tottenham number one will miss the Group B clash with Partizan Belgrade as he continues to recover from a dislocated elbow so Paulo Gazzaniga is expected to start in goal.

Here is the full 20-man squad as seen in the footage:

Michel Vorm, Paulo Gazzaniga, Ben Davies, Danny Rose, Juan Foyth, Japhet Tanganga, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ryan Sessegnon, Moussa Sissoko, Oliver Skipp, Tanguy Ndombele, Christian Eriksen, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Troy Parrott.
