Tottenham will be keen to begin their daunting Champions League group stage campaign with a win when they take on Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.
Spurs play host to the German giants at Wembley knowing three points will likely prove pivotal as they attempt to progress from Group H ahead of Real Madrid, APOEL and tonight’s opponents.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have yet to taste victory at their temporary Wembley home this season and suffered a disappointing Champions League record at the same venue last season – losing twice and winning one of their group stage fixtures.
Dele Alli misses out for the hosts as he serves the first game of his three-match European ban while Victor Wanyama sits out the clash due to a knee injury.
Serge Aurier makes his competitive debut for the hosts after securing a deadline day move from Paris Saint-Germain.
Take a look at the confirmed teams below.
Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Son, Kane
Substitutes: Vorm, Foyth, Trippier, Walker-Peters, Winks, Sissoko, Llorente
Borussia Dortmund XI: Bürki, Piszczek, Sokratis, Toprak, Toljan, Sahin, Dahoud, Kagawa, Aubameyang, Yarmolenko, Pulisic
Substitutes: Weidenfeller, Subotic, Castro, Gotze, Zagadou, Isak, Philipp
