Tottenham will be looking to avoid an upset when they take on Tranmere at Prenton Park in the third round of the FA Cup this evening.

Lucas Moura and Hueng-min Son support Fernando Llorente in attack with the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Davies, Ellis, McNulty, Monthe, Caprice, Harris, McCullough, Gilmour, Ridehalgh, Norwood, Jennings

Subs: Passant, Buxton, Sutton, Bakayogo, Banks, Mullin, Stockton


Gazzaniga, Aurier, Foyth, Sanchez, Davies, Walker-Peters, Skipp, Dele, Lucas, Son, Llorente.
