Mauricio Pochettino has made just one change to the Tottenham side that beat Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane last week.

Despite an impressive display against Palace, Vincent Janssen has been demoted to the bench. Dele Alli, who was ill last week, replaces Janssen in the starting eleven.

Noticeably a number of fringe players linked with moves away from the club are absent from the squad. Nacer Chadli and Ryan Mason are expected to move on, while Tom Carroll appears to be surplus to requirements.

Perhaps surprisingly, Kevin Wimmer is left out of the eighteen again. The Austrian signed a new contract earlier this summer but could still leave the club before Wednesday’s transfer deadline.

Here’s how Spurs reacted to the team news on Twitter.
