Tottenham will be looking for a repeat of their previous meeting against Red Star Belgrade when the two sides meet again on Wednesday evening.

Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son both notched doubles, with Erik Lamela also on the scoresheet as Mauricio Pochettino’s men ran out 5-0 winners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium a fortnight ago.

Pochettino’s only long-term injury concern remains his captain Hugo Lloris, who is currently nursing an elbow injury that is set to keep him out of action until 2020, while Erik Lamela misses out again but with a short-term issue.

England striker Kane missed Sunday’s clash with Everton due to illness, but is expected to lead the line for Spurs in Belgrade.

Giovani Lo Celso is also in line for his first start after a string of cameos from the bench.

Meanwhile, Son and Serge Aurier could both be rested following the traumatic turn of events in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Everton.

Both players were involved in the incident which resulted in a sickening injury to Toffees midfielder Andre Gomes.
