Confirmed Tottenham line-up v Barcelona: Davies starts, Skipp on the bench

General view of Wembley Stadium during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley at Wembley Stadium on August 27, 2017 in London, England.

Tottenham Hotspur host Barcelona in the Champions League this evening.

Tottenham Hotspur starting line-up: Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies; Wanyama, Winks; Lucas, Lamela, Son, Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur substitutes: Gazzaniga, Rose, Dier, Walker-Peters, Skipp, Sissoko, Llorente.

Tottenham are looking for their first win of this season's group stage having lost 2-1 at Inter Milan last time out, and Mauricio Pochettino is without Michel Vorm, Jan Vertonghen, Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen this evening.

Spurs therefore line up with Hugo Lloris in goal, and a back four of Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Ben Davies, with the latter coming in for Danny Rose at left back.

Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks both start having featured at Huddersfield Town in midfield together, with both players coming on at half time in Saturday's 2-0 victory.

Erik Lamela is brought back into the side as an attacking midfielder in place of the absent Eriksen, with Lucas Moura on the right flank and Son Heung-min on the left.

Harry Kane once again leads the line for Tottenham in attack after his two-goal showing at Huddersfield, with the England international showing signs of getting back to his best once again.

Paulo Gazzaniga is on the bench after a recent run in the team, alongside Rose, Eric Dier, Kyle Walker-Peters, Oliver Skipp, Moussa Sissoko and Fernando Llorente.
