Tottenham quartet named in squad against Bayer Leverkusen
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham quartet Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier, Erik Lamela and Ben Davies have boarded the plane to Germany, it was confirmed on Monday.
The Spurs official Twitter account posted a picture of the four senior players ahead of their journey for the Champions League clash on Tuesday against Bayer Leverkusen.
The image confirmed that all four players would be in the squad to face the Bundesliga side, although fans would have been hoping to see Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgium international left the pitch during the 1-1 draw against West Brom on Saturday following a collision with centre-back team-mate Jan Vertonghen.
Alderweireld underwent tests on Sunday and Pochettino refused to confirm or deny whether the former Southampton man would be fit enough for the clash in Germany, but did say it was doubtful.

If the defender is ruled out then Dier will be expected to fall back into the back four to cover for the injured star.
Meanwhile, Davies started the match against the Baggies in place of Danny Rose, but the England international is expected to reclaim the position with many assuming that he was rested for the Leverkusen match.
Attacking duo Lamela and Eriksen will be hoping to keep their places in the attacking midfield three.
Tottenham currently sit in second place in Group E, a point above Leverkusen and a point behind French side Monaco.
