Tottenham vs FC Dnipro: Match preview

Published Add your comment

Tottenham travel to Ukraine to face FC Dnipro in the round of 32 in the Europa League this evening.

There will be a lot of players rested for the game with the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Aaron Lennon, Kyle Walker, Mousa Dembele, Younes Kaboul and Hugo Lloris having not made the flight. 

Sandro is still unfit due to his calf injury, and Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches still have back problems ruling them out of the game. Spurs will also be missing Toronto-bound Jermain Defoe as he has an issue with his hamstring.

Sherwood is likely to lineup with a number of youth players, including Bentaleb, Fryers, Kane and Veljkovic. Brad Friedel is almost certain to start in goal, with presumably Dawson and Vertonghen starting defence.

Soldado may be given a chance up front to re-find his goal-scoring prowess after some poor performances in the Premier League.

Other potential starters include Naughton and Eriksen, as well as Chadli who scored a stunning goal in Spurs' 4-0 win against Newcastle.

Star man, Yevhen Konoplyanka is likely to start for FC Dnipro in their first competitive match of the new year.
