Possible Tottenham Starting XI to Face Anzhi


Tottenham will be looking to reach the top of Group K in the Europa League when they travel to Russia to face Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday.

Andre Villas-Boas

Spurs are heading into the match on the back of 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the White Hart Lane. Manager Andre Villas-Boas will be looking to use his squad depth to full effect by resting some of the players that took part in the London derby.

In the defence, Jan Vertonghen has been rested for this tie. The Portuguese will have to make a choice to between kaboul, Dawson and Chiriches for the central defensive role. Danny Rose is still absent will injury which means Walker and Naughton are expected to take the right and left-back slot in the defence.

Brazilian midfield dynamo Paulinho has been rested for this tie, which means Sandro and Dembele could start against the Russian side.

The front three of the 4-2-3-1 formation should consist of Erik Lamela on the right hand side, Holtby in the hole and Belgian Nacer Chadli on the left hand side. Jermain Defoe, who came on as a sub against Chelsea, will be looking to lead the attacking line.
