Christian Eriksen returned to training ahead of Tottenham’s crunch Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade.

Michel Vorm was not with the group following his return on a short-term contract last week, with Hugo Lloris the only senior absentee.

Harry Kane joined manager Mauricio Pochettino in the press conference to preview the match and – when asked if Spurs are being worked too hard in training – said: ‘There is going to be speculation when things aren’t going well, from the outside.
‘We work hard every day, we have worked hard since the manager has been here.’
On Tottenham’s recent tough spell, Kane added: ‘When you look at the results it has not been easy.
‘Every player wants to win, it is another challenge, in my career, in the club’s career, in this team’s career.
‘It is about overcoming that, it is not a straight path to success.’
