Spurs will bid to keep their top four hopes alive when they take on Arsenal in the North London derby later today.
Both sides will head into the game on the back of disappointing midweek results.
Arsenal took some semblance of comfort from their 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena however a 2-0 home defeat two weeks before put paid to their chances of progress and in the end the draw wasn’t enough to progress.
Spurs meanwhile suffered a disappointing 3-1 defeat at home to Benfica in the first leg of their last 16 game. The defeat was their first loss at White Hart Lane in 11 European games and put their chances of progressing to the quarter-finals in doubt.
The defeat came on the back of a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea and with Arsenal will once again be without some key men with Jack Wilshere ruled out and Aaron Ramsey still not ready to return.
Gunner’s boss Arsene Wenger was initially hopeful that the Welsh star would fit for the trip to White Hart Lane but those hopes have been dashed as the midfielder’s struggles to overcome a thigh injury.
“We have had to defer his comeback to full training a little so he is not available,” Wenger told the club’s official website. “He is having difficulties in the final stages of his rehab. It looks to be short-term.”
Arsenal will also be without star midfielder Mesut Ozil after the German International suffered a torn hamstring against Bayern with Wenger revealing he did not know how long the former Real Madrid would be out for.
“He is out. I don’t know for how long but it is a hamstring injury. There are scans going on,” added Wenger
Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs are expected to be fit for the clash although Thomas Vermaelen will be hopeful of keeping his spot after a solid display in Munich.
Kim Kallstrom looks to be included in the Arsenal squad for the first time while Yaya Sanogo is also expected to be fit after missing the trip to Germany.
Spurs meanwhile named a strong side for their clash with Benifca and of those that missed out only Roberto Soldado, Andros Townsend, Tim Sherwood favourite Nabil Bentalab and Danny Rose will fancy their chances of starting on Sunday.
Soldado is likely to come in for Harry Kane to resume his partnership with Emmanuel Adebayor while Townsend will vie with Christian Eriksen, Spurs goal scorer on Thursday, for the wide midfield berth.
