GAME PREVIEW


Harry Kane Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino will be without a few key men for this match and may have to adjust his approach accordingly.

If the Argentine wishes to stick with Tottenham's usual 3-4-2-1 formation he will need 19-year-old centre-back Juan Foyth to step up to the plate in the absence of Jan Vertonghen, with the injuries to Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele meaning Eric Dier will likely be deployed in midfield.

Harry Winks is another youngster who could earn a starting spot in that scenario.

Alternatively, Pochettino could pair Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez in a back four and add a player further up the pitch.

Fernando Llorente may be in contention to come into the team as a partner for Harry Kane in that scenario, or Georges-Kevin N'Koudou could be handed a rare start out wide.

Whatever happens, Kane, Dier, Alderweireld, Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-Min will need to stand up and be counted if Spurs are to take another step towards the Champions League knockout stage.
