Tottenham won 3-0 in the Champions League against APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday evening and Pochettino will no doubt be hoping that win gives his side the confidence to overcome the Potters, although there are likely to be plenty of changes to the playing personnel.

A Tottenham win could see them move back ahead of Arsenal while Stoke could move into the top 10 with a victory of their own.
