Spurs have named their squad for the match against Inter Milan in Oslo and there are some interesting absentees.
Jan Vertonghen is still out injured and Nabil Bentaleb and Clintion Njie were expected to be omitted, but some of the other players left out are more surprising.

The squad has no place for Nacer Chadli, Josh Onomah, Kyle Walker-Peters, Victor Wanyama and DeAndre Yedlin. We assume that Wanyama has picked up an injury, as might have Onomah – though it’s possible that Onomah and/or Walker-Peters are being sent out on loan to gain more experience.
The future looks far bleaker for Nacer Chadli and DeAndre Yedlin. Chadli has been linked with a move to Swansea in recent weeks, while Yedlin remains a target for Sunderland.
Yedlin may well return to Sunderland for another loan spell, but Chadli looks likely to be sold at this juncture. In a week when two fringe players have already left the club, could the squad be trimmed further in the coming days?
