Erik Lamela has returned to training and is available for selection against Barcelona in our mouth-watering Champions League showdown in the Nou Camp on Tuesday.

The Argentine attacker has been out with a thigh problem since our 1-0 win over Inter on matchday five at the end of November.

Mauricio Pochettino has a decision to make at right-back, though. Serge Aurier, who was forced off in the latter stages of Saturday's Premier League win at Leicester, is being assessed by our medical staff over a groin problem and has not travelled to Barcelona while Kieran Trippier (also groin) is undergoing an individual preventive and conditioning programme.

Erik Lamela is back and it’s always important that the players are fit to create a problem in my head about the starting XI.

“Serge is going to have a scan today, he’s going to be out,” Mauricio reported. “We think it’s a small problem. We assessed him yesterday but we need to confirm that with the scan.

“We hope it’s not going to be a big issue and that he’s back as soon as possible.”

On Erik, the manager added: “He's back and it’s always important that the players are fit to create a problem in my head about the starting XI.”

Mousa Dembele (ankle), Juan Foyth (hamstring and ineligible), Georges-Kevin Nkoudou (ineligible) Davinson Sanchez (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) have not travelled to Spain.

Kick-off on Tuesday is at 8pm UK time.
