Tottenham have released a motivational video for fans ahead of their first Champions League encounter in five years against Monaco on Wednesday evening.
Spurs were last in the competition in 2011 under then manager Harry Redknapp and reached the quarter-finals of the competition.
The video includes a compilation of some of the north Londoners’ best moments over the last 12 months, including Harry Kane’s strike against Stoke, Son Heung-min’s clever finish against Watford and Delle Ali’s clinical goal against Manchester United.

The montage, which also included shots of Tottenham’s manager Mauricio Pochettino, has been released as a preview to Spurs’ first European fixture of the season against Monaco.
The match, which will be played at Wembley stadium, is set to be the highest attended Champions League match ever in Britain, with 90,000 tickets sold for the clash.
Spurs’ current record for home attendance is 75,038 for a 1938 match against Sunderland at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham are playing all their Champions League home matches at Wembley this season because White Hart Lane’s capacity is reduced for its final season, to allow building work to continue on the new ground.
The north Londoners take on the French outfit for the first bout of fixtures in Group E and will also have to contend with Bayer Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow before they can progress in the competition.
