Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Erik Lamela have all been left out of Tottenham’s starting eleven for the trip to Middlesbrough.

In fact, Dier and Dembele haven’t even made the 18-man squad after failing to recover from hamstring injuries picked up in the 1-0 win against Sunderland last weekend.

Despite impressing against Gillingham in midweek, Lamela only makes the bench. Moussa Sissoko starts, but it’s unclear whether he will play in the attacking midfield trio or partner Victor Wanyama in the deeper midfield band.
