Tottenham Hotspur fans may finally be granted another glimpse of new signing, Giovani Lo Celso, tonight in the Champions League as the Lilywhites take on Red Star Belgrade.
Spurs currently have just the one point in the group after an away draw against Olympiacos and a home battering at the hands of Bayern, but that is one point more than the team had at this stage last year.
A win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tonight and Spurs could pull themselves into realistic contention for a knockout round qualifying spot.
Pochettino will be hoping that his home fans are able to generate some atmosphere this evening with Red Star banned from selling away tickets after racist chanting (Sky Sports).
The Argentine has recalled Giovani Lo Celso to the squad, but the midfielder only makes the bench, along with Harry Winks, Christian Eriksen, and Lucas Moura.
Paulo Gazzaniga, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies, Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Heung Min Son, and Harry Kane all make the starting XI.
Some fans have reacted to the team news on Twitter:
