Tottenham Hotspur have cruised through to the last-16 of the Champions League as group winners following a 3-0 victory over APOEL Nicosia.

Having already confirmed their qualification to the knockout stages before their final group match, manager Mauricio Pochettino gave a few fringe players a run out at Wembley Stadium.

So here are three that impressed enough to perhaps be in Spurs' starting XI when they host Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday (December 9).

Juan Foyth

The game against the Cypriots was only Foyth's third in a Tottenham shirt since a summer switch from Estudiantes in his native Argentina.

On the night the 19-year-old looked assured in possession and with Toby Alderweireld injured and Davinson Sanchez suspended for three games, could he be called upon at the weekend?

Fernando Llorente

The striker finally scored his first goal for his new club following a move to North London from Swansea City and Pochettino will be hoping that opens the floodgates.

Against a physical Stoke defence Llorente could enjoy a positive afternoon, especially with Harry Kane seemingly still having fitness concerns.

Harry Winks

Returning from his own injury problems but the 21-year-old dominated the central midfield against APOEL and looks ready to hit the ground running.

Spurs have been struggling to have much impetus from the middle in recent times and Winks could be just the creative influence they need in there.
