Tottenham entertain AEL Limassol in the second leg of their Europa League qualifier at White Hart Lane on Thursday.

Erik Lamela was the creative force behind Tottenham's comeback as they won the first leg 2-1 having conceded first.


After the weekend's 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers Mauricio Pochettino will undoubtedly make changes, with the likes of Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado, Lewis Holtby, Andros Townsend and Ben Davies coming in. Emmanuel Adebayor, Christian Eriksen and Etienne Capoue are amongst the candidates set for a breather.


Their Cypriot opponents AEL Limassol showed enough in the first leg for Pochettino and his Spurs side to give them their due respect, but having won away in hot and humid conditions, on a bobbly pitch, coach and fans alike will expect a comfortable victory at White Hart Lane.

Spurs fans may hope that Pochettino gives a couple of youngsters a place on the bench. Academy graduates such as Milos Vejkolvic, Cristian Ceballos, Daniel Akindayini or Nathan Oduwa will hope to see some first team action this season as they continue their development, and if Tottenham can end the tie early, it will give Pochettino a chance to show the White Hart Lane faithful a glimpse of their future stars
