Both Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga were not in Tottenham Hotspur training today.

Spurs broadcast their training session ahead of their Europa League match with LASK tomorrow, but the central defensive pairing were nowhere to be seen.

Dier and Tanganga both missed Tottenham’s game against West Ham United at the weekend through injury, and it seems that their problems are persisting.

Spurs are now very short of options at the back ahead of their Europa League tie.

Jose Mourinho may be forced to pick Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld at the back again.

His only other option is to play Ben Davies as an auxiliary central defender, but he is more comfortable playing in a three-man rather than a two-man defence.

Spurs cannot call upon new signing Joe Rodon, who may have been in with a chance of making his debut, as he has not been registered for the Europa League group stages.
