Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has banned his players from watching their 7-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich.
Both sides have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League and meet in Germany on Wednesday, two months after Bayern’s stunning victory in London.
“I forbid any image of it,” said Mourinho. “I watched it a couple of times, but not one image for the boys.”
Striker Harry Kane, midfielder Dele Alli and defenders Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier have all been rested.
Tottenham are still without goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm, defender Ben Davies and midfielders Erik Lamela, Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele because of injuries and Mourinho wants some of his fringe players to take their chances.
“This is a great opportunity for some of them to play, to show what they’re capable of,” added Mourinho, a two-time Champions League winner.
“A player in competition is different to a player training, some of my boys didn’t have the chance to play many minutes in these five matches since I arrived.
“We have an incredible number of fixtures until the new year and it’s understandable that we’re going to make a few changes, rest a few players and give opportunities to others.”
