Mauricio Pochettino is expected to make a whole host of changes to his Tottenham Hotspur side as they face APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday night in a match that will have no effect on Spurs' finish in Group H of the Champions League.

The north Londoners have already qualified in first place ahead of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund as well as APOEL ahead of the knockout stages of the competition.

Pochettino will want to rest his first-team stars before Saturday's Premier League clash against Stoke City, and ESPN correspondent Dan Kilpatrick has told Spurs fans on Twitter that four first-teamers will be rested.

He stated that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be left out of the Spurs side, along with Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen, and that will see another goalkeeper start between the sticks.

It will see Pochettino choose between Paulo Gazzaniga and Michel Vorm to start the match, with the latter's contract ending in just a matter of months. The 34-year-old will be able to talk to clubs on a free from January 1.

With a number of important games over the bust Christmas period, Holland international Vorm is in line to start what could be one of his last appearances in a Tottenham shirt.

The clash could therefore come as Vorm's last chance to prove to Pochettino that he deserves a contract extension at Spurs, before he becomes available on a free in the January transfer window.

The 15-time international has made just two appearances this season in the Carabao Cup, as he remains behind 30-year-old Lloris in the pecking order. But if he is looking to remain at Spurs, he must impress against the Cypriot champions to stand any chance of an extended Tottenham stay.

Keeping a clean sheet is of paramount importance to Vorm's chances, as his future hangs in the balance.
