Spurs have confirmed their starting XI for tonight’s Europa League cup tie with Tromso and there are few surprises across the park. It was felt that Brad Friedel would start in goal but the American stays on the bench while there is a first start in a Spurs shirt for 21 year old Argentine international Erik Lamela.
The full line up reads
Lloris, Naughton, Dawson, Kaboul, Rose, Dembele, Sandro, Lamela, Holtby, Sigurdsson, Defoe.
Meanwhile, there’s plenty of experience on the bench should things go wrong or if AVB wants to rotate if the result looks comfortable. Roberto Soldado, Christian Eriksen and Paulinho all wait in the wings while Andros Townsend may well be unleashed later in the game.
The subs bench is
Friedel, Vertonghen, Eriksen, Paulinho, Townsend, Kane, Soldado.
Less than an hour to go until kick off – what’s your prediction?
