Tottenham left Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld behind on Wednesday as they flew out to Bulgaria for their Europa League play-off.

Jose Mourinho revealed at his pre-match press conference that he was leaving eight senior players at home but still planned on fielding a strong line-up against Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

The identities of the eight were not confirmed by Mourinho, though Standard Sport understands Alli and Alderweireld are staying at Hotspur Way.

Alli, who was withdrawn at half-time against Everton on Sunday, was briefly linked with a move to Real Madrid on Tuesday night as part of negotiations for Gareth Bale.

Reports that Alli's omission is related to uncertainty over his future are thought to be wide of the mark.

In Alli's absence in Bulgaria, Giovani Lo Celso is expected to come in after shaking off an injury.

Harry Kane will lead the line, with Erik Lamela and Steven Bergwijn hoping to complete the front three.
