The north London club’s starting XI for tie with in-form Hull.
Having come back from the international break with back-to-back wins, Tottenham Hotspur now face a potentially tricky home tie in the Premier League with Hull City.
Despite having only been promoted from the Championship at the end of last season, the Tigers have adapted well to life in the top tier and have 11 points from eight matches.
For Spurs, £107m worth of new talent that was bought in this summer has looked solid if unspectacular, but victory over Hull would take the side up to third.
After a good performance mid-week in the Europa League against FC Sheriff, Vlad Chiriches continues to partner captain Michael Dawson in central defence, with Jan Vertonghen pushed to left-back.
Paulinho and Sandro remain in central midfield as the two Brazilians continue to form a formidable partnership in the middle of the park, whilst the in-form Lewis Holtby and Andros Townsend start once again.
Aaron Lennon has been given a spot by manager Andre Villas-Boas having fully recovered from injury and despite becoming the club’s joint top European goal-scorer on Thursday, Jermain Defoe is replaced by Roberto Soldado in attack.
Today’s line-up: Lloris; Walker, Chiriches, Dawson, Vertonghen; Paulinho, Sandro; Townsend, Holtby, Lennon; Soldado #THFC

Hull meanwhile continue with a formation and line-up that has served them well so far, although Jake Livermore is ineligible as the midfielder is on-loan from Tottenham, but Tom Huddlestone lines up for the first time against the Englishman’s former side.
