Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly at risk of being frozen out at Tottenham - so it seems only fitting that his side's next opponents in the Europa League Tromso reside inside the Arctic Circle.

The Portguese coach finds his job under pressure following Spurs' 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday, and he'll look to extinguish the flames of speculation with a clinical performance in icy Norway.

Mindful of a tough home game against Manchester United this weekend, AVB has opted to leave 10 first team players at home and will give some of his youth players a chance to shine.

Kyle Walker, Hugo Lloris, Paulinho, Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon, Sandro and Younes Kaboul have been rested by the former Chelsea coach, while Emmanuel Adebayor, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen are out through injury.

Spurs have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League, and will secure top spot with a victory tonight.

Tottenham predicted line-up: Brad Friedel, Zeki Fryers, Kyle Naughton, Vlad Chiriches, Michael Dawson, Etienne Capoue, Mousa Dembele, Nacer Chadli, Lewis Holtby, Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado.

Predicted score: Tromso 1-2 Tottenham
