Confirmed: Tottenham Hotspur line-up v Fiorentina in the Europa League

White Hart Lane

Here is the side Mauricio Pochettino has selected to face Fiorentina this evening.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Vertonghen, Fazio, Davies. Paulinho, Bentaleb. Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend. Soldado

Subs: Vorm, Dier, Rose, Dembele, Lamela, Mason, Kane

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has two choices in relation to the Europa League; go all out to win it or hold players back to challenge for a top four place in the Premier League.

Tottenham are hunting a Champions League spot for next season and the Europa League represents a way into that competition.

Spurs face a difficult pair of games against Fiorentina, one of the most impressive and most experienced teams in Italian football.

One approach Pochettino could take is to go all out for a win in this game, trust his squad to get the better of West Ham this weekend and then rest players ahead of the second leg next week.

If he opts against starting his strongest side and throws some fringe players into the mix, it’s a good chance for the players coming in to show him why they should be in the team on a more consistent basis over the rest of the season.

Tottenham have been in good form lately and despite the defeat at Liverpool, they should be confident at White Hart Lane this evening.
