Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho, has banned his players from watching their 7-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich.

Tottenham and Bayern have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League. The two will meet in Germany on Wednesday, two months after Bayern’s 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, defender Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier have all been rested.

Tottenham is still without goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm, defender Ben Davies and midfielder Erik Lamela, Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele because of injuries. In this case, 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 are capable of.” Added Mourinho.

“A player in the competition is different from 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. Understandably, we’re going to make a few changes, rest a few players and give opportunities to others.”

Last season’s beaten finalists Tottenham is second in Group B on 10 points. While group winners, Bayern, have so far won all five games.

Mourinho was in charge of Tottenham’s match against Olympiakos. Despite falling 2-0 behind, a 4-2 victory secured their place in the knockout phase.

Tottenham, seventh in the Premier League is playing seven times in December. Their next two league matches are away at sixth-placed Wolves on Sunday and then at home to fourth-placed Chelsea on 22nd December.

Bayern, who has been German Champions, seven years in a row, is struggling domestically. A 2-1 loss at leaders Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday left them seventh in the Bundesliga.
