Tottenham are putting the finishing touches on their preparations ahead of the first game of their Champions League campaign.

The north London outfit begin a tough group in Europe's premier competition by hosting Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday night. 

And Mauricio Pochettino put his men through their paces at Enfield Training Ground ahead of the clash on Tuesday morning.

Spurs, who will also contend with Real Madrid and Apoel Nicosia in Group H, will be hoping to put an end to their poor Wembley record against the Germans.

The club are winless at their temporary home ground after two games this season and won just one of four games last term – against CSKA Moscow when elimination was already confirmed. 

They will be without Victor Wanyama, who remains out with a knee injury, but Mousa Dembele could be in line to return to the starting line-up. 

The Belgian midfielder made a cameo appearance in Saturday's dominant 3-0 win over Everton, with Mauricio Pochettino previously admitting the player struggles to play three times in a week.

Elsewhere, Tottenham have no fresh injury concerns beyond Moussa Sissoko, who suffered a knock at Goodison Park.
