Vincent Janssen is expected to lead the line for Tottenham on Wednesday night – and the club’s supporters are hopeful on Twitter that he will score.
Spurs face a home match against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League group stages and will be looking to better the 0-0 draw from the reverse fixture in Germany.
The north London are currently involved in a fascinating group alongside Monaco, Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow, with the four teams separated by just three points.
They are currently second and still have two of their three games left to play at home against Leverkusen and CSKA, with Spurs using the national stadium Wembley this season.
Harry Kane has returned to training and could make his comeback in the Premier League clash with rivals Arsenal on Sunday, but has been ruled out of Wednesday’s European match.
Spurs supporters are hopeful that Janssen can score his first goal from open play in the crucial European match.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Janssen, 22, has endured a mixed start to his Spurs career this season and is still settling at White Hart Lane.
The striker moved from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in the summer following an impressive season in front of goal, scoring 32 goals in 49 appearances across all competitions.
He has started slowly in Pochettino’s side with just three penalty goals coming from his first 15 fixtures across all competitions.
Janssen has been heavily relied upon in the absence of the injured Kane, but is still searching for his first goal from open play.
