Tottenham get back to Premier League action when they entertain Crystal Palace in north London this afternoon.
Mauricio Pochettino has handed Serge Aurier his first start of the season with the Ivory Coast international coming in at right-back in place of Davinson Sanchez who misses out through injury.
Jan Vertonghen keeps his place alongside Toby Alderweireld in the middle of the Spurs back four with Danny Rose selected ahead of Ben Davies at left-back. Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko start in midfield meaning Eric Dier must make-do with a place on the bench while summer signing Tanguy Ndombele is also named among the subs after overcoming a knock.
Christian Erisken retains his place after scoring against Arsenal before the international break and the Dane is joined by Erik Lamela and Hueng-min Son in the Tottenham attack with Harry Kane once again leading the line up front.
