There’s no official confirmation from the club but it seems that there are no fresh injuries from the clash with Lyon last Thursday. However, it also means that Jermain Defoe, Sandro and Younes Kaboul will continue to sit this one out.
The side should see at least two changes from the second leg in France with Hugo Lloris coming back in goal and William Gallas making way for Jan Vertonghen. BAE could also be put under pressure from Kyle Naughton at left back.
Elsewhere, Lewis Holtby started his first game in a Spurs shirt last Thursday but will AVB keep him in the starting XI for this match? The German did plenty to impress but will Villas-Boas recall Clint Dempsey at Upton Park?
Here’s how we think Spurs will line up but what’s your view?
