Tottenham Hotspur v Apoel Nicosia confirmed line-ups: Here’s who starts at Wembley


Mauricio Pochettino has fielded a much-changed line-up for Tottenham’s final Champions League group stage match against Apoel Nicosia.

Spurs have already booked their place in the last-16 of Europe’s premier competition, and Pochettino has decided to rest Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier, Hugo Lloris and Kieran Trippier.

The north Londoners are struggling for form in the Premier League, and Pochettino wants to keep his key players fresh for Saturday’s visit of Stoke to give them the best chance of victory.

With such a weakened squad named, Apoel will sense the possibility of finishing third in Group H and qualifying for the Europa League ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

BVB currently sit third, but if Apoel better Dortmund’s result against Real Madrid in Group H’s other match, they will move ahead of the Germans.

So, who has been selected for the clash at Wembley? The confirmed teams can be seen, in full, below…

Confirmed line-ups:

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Vorm, Rose, Sanchez, Foyth, Aurier, Winks, Sissoko, N’Koudou, Alli, Son, Llorente

Substitutes: Gazzaniga, Davies, Vertonghen, Walker-Peters, Amos, Dembele, Sterling

Apoel Nicosia XI: Perez, Lago, Rueda, Ebecilo, Pote, Vinicius, Zahid, Morais, Vouros, Aloneftis, Carlao
