Clubs have been confirming their Champions League squads for the knock-out phase of this season's competition with Tottenham including five goalkeepers on their list.

While there are few other changes from the original list submitted back in September, January signings Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes replace the outgoing Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose who moved to Inter Milan and Newcastle respectively.

However, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has opted to include five keepers with Michel Vorm added alongside youngster Alfie Whiteman and Brandon Austin.

Clubs have to submit a maximum of 25 players, two of whom must be goalkeepers with a minimum of eight places reserved exclusively for 'locally trained players'.

If a club has fewer than eight of these players in their squad, then the maximum number of players on their list is reduced accordingly.

Players born on, or after, January 1, 1998 and have been eligible to play for the club for two years since their 15th birthday do not need to be registered in this list and are instead placed on 'List B'.

Each club can name an unlimited number of players on 'List B' throughout the campaign though the list has to be submitted by 10pm the day before a game.
