Mauricio Pochettino has admitted in the build-up to the game that a fully-fit squad is forcing him to leave out a number of players in recent weeks which includes captain Yonues Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor and Etienne Capoue.

Andros Townsend, Ryan Mason and Nacer Chadli all retain their place after scoring against the Swans, meaning that Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela and Benjamin Stambouli are all named on the bench.
