Mousa Dembele returns for Tottenham’s Champions League opener against Monaco at Wembley, but he’s only on the bench.

The Belgian missed Spurs’ opening four Premier League games of the season through suspension, so this will be his first appearance of the new campaign.

Victor Wanyama has started each and every game in Dembele’s absence. Tonight, however, both midfielders are on the bench, with Dele Alli preferred in central midfield alongside Eric Dier.

Heung-Min Son keeps his place after his exploits at Stoke last weekend. Erik Lamela comes in while the rest of the team is unchanged.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Dembele’s return and the rest of the team news.
