By on October 18, 2016

Tottenham will be looking to take a huge step towards qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League when they take on Bayer Leverkusen in Germany this evening.

Mauricio Pochettino has opted to leave Kyle Walker back in north London to rest so Kieran Trippier starts at right-back while Danny Rose comes back in to the side at left-back with Ben Davies dropping out.

Eric Dier comes in to the centre of defence with Toby Alderweireld ruled out with a knee injury while Vincent Janssen somewhat surprisingly keeps his place up front. Hueng-min Son does get a recall with Moussa Sissoko dropping to the bench.

Victor Wanyama keeps his place in the holding role while Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Erik Lamela also retain their starting spots.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Leverkusen

Leno; Bender, Tah, Toprak, Henrichs; Kampl, Aranguiz, Mehmedi, Calhanoglu; Hernandez, Kiessling.

Subs: Ozcan, Dragovic, Jedvaj, Baumgartlinger, Brandt, Havertz, Volland.
