Mauricio Pochettino has named his Tottenham Hotspur side ahead of tonight’s Champions League first leg against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

This is the third time in the last four seasons that the two clubs have faced each other in the last four seasons in European competition.  Their head-to-head record is balanced, with two wins each.

As expected, Danny Rose does not take his place in the starting line up after suffering a gash to his shin during the second half of the 3-1 win against Leicester City on Sunday.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli once again are unavailable as they continue their rehabilitation.

Dortmund also have key players missing of their own with Marco Reus, Julian Weigl, Paco Alcacer and Lukasz Piszczek all sidelined.

This is who starts.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Foyth, Vertonghen, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lucas, Son.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Trippier, Rose, Skipp, Wanyama, Lamela, Llorente

Borussia Dortmund: Bürki; Hakimi, Toprak, Diallo, Zagadou; Delaney, Witsel; Sancho, Dahoud, Pulisic; Götze.

Subs: Hitz, Balerdi, Schmelzer, Wolf, Bruun Larsen, Guerreiro, Philipp
