Record signing Erik Lamela remains on the bench, while Christian Eriksen is out for a month an ankle injury…
Spurs have Christian Eriksen and Emmanuel Adebayor and Nacer Chadli out long-term, while Danny Rose could face a late fitness test. With Jan Vertonghen performing so well there however, it’s unlikely Andre Villas-Boas will risk the young English fullback.
Paulinho and Sandro will provide a base in midfield for Mousa Dembele to get forward, while Andros Townsend and Gylfi Sigurdsson will start from the wide spots ahead of record signing Erik Lamela.
Up top, Roberto Soldado will be given yet another chance to impress ahead of Jermain Defoe.
