There’s no definitive news from the Spurs camp as yet so the team is even harder to speculate upon. It could be that Ryan Mason, Iago Falque and similar fringe players could be involved although assistant manager Steffen Freund has promised a strong side.
We do know that Moussa Dembele is set to miss out again along with long term victims Scott Parker, Younes Kaboul and BAE but will there be space for Emmanuel Adebayor?
The goalkeeper question remains and while Hugo Lloris has been in the news again today, Spurs could just as easily play Carlo between the posts. Ahead of the keeper, Kyle Naughton could cover either of the full back positions with Michael Dawson set to return.
The midfield may be complete guess work but up front, the doubts over Ade should see Defoe set to keep his place.
Here’s our verdict – what’s yours?
