Eighteen-year-old striker Shayon Harrison is one of several youngsters to have travelled to Baku with the Tottenham Hotspur squad for their Europa League clash with Qarabag FK on Thursday 26 November.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are in action again at midday on Sunday 29 November in a huge Premier League tie with Chelsea, but first have a 5000-mile round trip for their penultimate group game in the Europa League to contend with.

The manager has selected a 21-man travelling squad that features nine players to have come from the club's academy, opting to rest a handful of first-team regulars. Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Mousa Dembele are among those to have been left in North London while Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela are still recovering from injury. Harrison, Josh Onomah, Harry Winks and Luke McGee are among the club's young hopefuls to have made the journey.

Harry Kane is also among the travelling party despite Sunday's huge game, but Pochettino says he has selected a squad needed to secure a valuable win.

"We want to stay in this run in the Europa League and we need to compete and take three points," he told Tottenham's official website. "They [Qarabag] have played well in this group, maybe for some this is a surprise but not for us. We understand this is a very good team and they've shown at White Hart Lane and against Anderlecht and Monaco they can play well.

"We have a very busy period ahead of us now, we need a squad ready to complete but in a good condition. For that, we need to assess the players after every game and try to make the best decisions for the team and compete in the best condition."
