Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas is set to make a number of changes for the match against Lyon in the Europa League tomorrow night.

William Gallas is set to be the major beneficiary, according to The Evening Standard, with the Frenchman to make his first start since the 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day.

A calf injury has kept the 35-year-old out for large periods since that game, with a 12-minute cameo against West Bromwich Albion his only other action since the festive fixture.

Lewis Holtby could also feature for Spurs, according to the paper, with the German international eligible despite playing for Schalke in the Champions League last year.

Villas-Boas will be keen to utilise his full squad for the clash against the Ligue 1 outfit, with big games against Arsenal and Liverpool around the corner in March.

David Bentley is a player who is unlikely to be involved for the White Hart Lane outfit however, with the midfielder poised to rejoin Blackburn Rovers on loan, the paper claims.

Bentley joined Tottenham Hotspur from the Lancashire club in 2008, but has failed to live-up to the £15million price-tag paid for his services.
