Limassol v Tottenham preview

Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho are in line to feature for Tottenham in Thursday's Europa League play-off against AEL Limassol.

The quartet did not feature in Saturday's 1-0 win at West Ham following their late return from the World Cup, while Kyle Walker (pelvis) and Vlad Chiriches (back) remain absent through injury.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has left a number of first-team players at home with the Premier League fixtures now underway.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Christian Eriksen, Younes Kaboul, Aaron Lennon and Etienne Capoue have been rested, while summer signing Michel Vorm was not registered for the play-off round.
