Who will face off against the Russian side in Moscow this evening.
The club have several injury concerns, with Etienne Capoue and Aaron Lennon both out with their respective injuries.
Andre Villas-Boas has also decided that Paulinho and Jan Vertonghen need a rest, as neither player has travelled with the squad to Russia for this evening’s game.
AVB is expected to ring some changes, with the in-form Lewis Holtby set to receive another chance to shine. Meanwhile Erik Lamela should get a run out as well as Jermain Defoe.
Some good news coming from the Anzhi camp is that their star striker Lacina Traore is out with a shoulder problem, which removes Anzhi’s main threat after the sale of many of their players due to internal politics and financial influences.
But enough jibber-jabbering … here is the Spurs line-up for the UEFA Europa League tie v Anzhi Makhachkala.
Starting XI: Lloris; Walker, Chiriches, Kaboul, Fryers; Dembele, Sandro; Lamela, Holtby, Chadli; Defoe
Subs: Friedel, Dawson, Naughton, Eriksen, Sigurdsson, Kane, Soldado
