THE TEAM NEWS

TOTTENHAM

  • Tottenham Hotspur's poor form continued with a 1-1 draw at home to Watford on Saturday and they have now won just two of their last 11 games in all competitions.
  • Mauricio Pochettino started with a back three for the first time this season against Watford but it remains to be seen whether he will stick with that tactic.
  • Christian Eriksen will undergo a late fitness test after missing Saturday's game with a dead leg so Dele Alli, who scored on his first league start of the campaign, could keep his place.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gazzaniga; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Aurier, Ndombele, Winks, Davies; Son, Eriksen; Kane

Unavailable: Lloris (Injured)

Doubtful: Sessegnon (Injured), Lo Celso (Injured), Eriksen (Injured)

CRVENA ZVEZDA

  • Crvena zvezda travel to London full of confidence following six wins in all competitions and will be looking to pull off a shock against a Spurs side low on confidence.
  • Richmond Boakye is a doubt having missed the last couple of games so top scorer Milan Pavkov will lead the line, while Milan Gajic and Branko Jovicic remain sidelined.
  • Coach Vladan Milojevic is expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 system with Rajiv van la Parra and Milos Degenek recalled to the side after being rested on Friday.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Borjan; Gobeljic, Degenek, Milunovic, Rodic; Jovancic, Canas; Garcia, Marin, Van La Parra; Tomane

Unavailable: Ben Nabouhane (Ineligible), Gajic (Injured), Jovicic (Injured), Boakye (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Tottenham will be keen to banish the memories of their horror show against Bayern at the start of the month and this is a good opportunity to go some way towards that. The visitors will try to frustrate them, though, and given Spurs' poor form, it may be a laboured rather than a convincing win.
