Tottenham Hotspur will book their place in the Europa League’s knockout stages if they beat Serbia’s Partizan Belgrade tonight.

Here’s the team we expect Mauricio Pochettino to start with at White Hart Lane:

GK: Michel Vorm

Hugo Lloris has been Tottenham’s best player this season by a long way, but, against a fairly impotent attack – Partizan have scored just one goal in four Europa League games – Pochettino will feel comfortable giving Vorm a rare run-out.

RB: Eric Dier

The two Kyle’s – Walker and Naughton – are not fully fit, so Dier should continue at right-back.

LB: Ben Davies

Davies has been a regular in Tottenham’s European games this season.

CB: Vlad Chiriches

Chiriches played at right-back for the second half of Sunday’s 2-1 win at Hull, doing fairly well. His performances at centre-half have been far from impressive, but, with Federico Fazio banned and Younes Kaboul struggling with injury, the Romanian will be given another chance in the middle.

CB: Jan Vertonghen

Spurs will need a solid and experienced defender to play alongside Chiriches.
