Tottenham will look to bring home a positive result from their Europa League first leg tie with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night.  Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is certain to keep his place in goal with Michel Vorm once again among the substitutes.

Defence: Danny Rose has been left back in North London while Kyle Walker should also be given a rest as Pochettino has opted to go with Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier in the full-back spots in the Europa League for much of this season.

With Jan Vertonghen still out with a serious knee injury, Kevin Wimmer should continue alongside Toby Alderweireld at the back.

Midfield: Eric Dier has also not travelled to Germany so Ryan Mason is likely to get a recall in midfield while Mousa Dembele should retain his place after making a successful return from injury during the 2-2 draw with Arsenal last weekend. Tom Carroll and Nabil Bentaleb are options if Pochettino wants to mix things up.

Attack: Dele Alli is suspended having amassed three yellow cards in the Europa League so we could see Nacer Chadli come back in to the attack alongside Christian Eriksen. Hueng-min Son could also get a recall in place of Erik Lamela while Harry Kane should once again lead the line up front.

Here is how I think we’ll see Spurs line-up:
