Tottenham Hotspur entertain Benfica at White Hart Lane this evening in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie.
Boss Tim Sherwood has surprisingly handed a start to young striker Harry Kane as he starts alongside Emmanuel Adebayor in attack tonight. Kyle Naughton plays at left-back with Danny Rose not risked from the start, but Christian Eriksen does return to the first eleven having recovered from a back injury.
Aaron Lennon, Paulinho and Sandro make-up the rest of the midfield while Jan Vertonghen returns to his usual centre-back role after filling in at left-back last weekend and starts alongside Younes Kaboul.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Lloris; Walker, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Naughton; Lennon, Paulinho, Sandro, Eriksen; Adebayor, Kane
Subs: Friedel, Fryers, Rose, Bentaleb, Chadli, Townsend, Soldado.
Oblak, Silvio, Garay, Luisão, Siqueira, Fejsa, Rúben Amorim, Sulejmani, Markovic, Rodrigo, Cardozo
Subs: Artur, Almeida, Jardel, Perez, Djuricic, Gaitan, Lima.
