Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has an almost fully-fit squad to select from when Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich visit north London this evening.Bayern currently top Group B following their comfortable win over Red Star Belgrade in the opening round of matches, two points ahead of Spurs who could only manage a draw at Olympiakos.
Tottenham squandered a two-goal lead in Greece and have since suffered defeats to Leicester in the Premier League and Colchester United in the Carabao Cup after a penalty shootout.However, Spurs got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Southampton at the weekend and Pochettino will hope for more of the same when a formidable Bayern side visit the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Perisic admits Bayern Munich are cautious of Tottenham threat
Lay off Lloris, Liverpool for title, Man Utd Arsenal - talking points The home side remain without Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso due to hamstring and hip problems respectively, but Son Heung-min is expected to be fit to face the Bavarian outfit.
The South Korean was withdrawn midway in the second half against Southampton but the change is now believed to have been tactical with Spurs making no mention of an injury in their latest update.Son is therefore expected to partner Harry Kane in attack while Christian Eriksen could be deployed in a No 10 role.
The Dane started ahead of a midfield made up of Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko against Saints and Pochettino could be tempted to call upon the same quartet again.
