With the tie in the balance, Andre Villas-Boas will be looking to pick a strong side for tonight’s Europa League tie and with no Premiership action until Monday, he has the extra luxury to do so.

AVB confirmed that there were no fresh concerns ahead of this game so injury victims Jermain Defoe, Sandro and Younes Kaboul are the only ones definitely ruled out.

Brad Friedel starts in goal but the questions start ahead of him where the head coach has been shuffling his back four on a regular basis. Gallas, Dawson, Caulker and Vertonghen will battle for the central places while Walker and BAE should start at full back.

In midfield, Andre may well keep his first choice foursome of Lennon, Parker, Dembele and Bale but there are challenges from the likes of Sigurdsson and Livermore.

Emmanuel Adebayor will play as a lone striker but will Clint Dempsey slot in behind him or will AVB choose to give a first start to new signing Lewis Holtby?

Here’s how we think Spurs will line up but what’s your view?
