PREVIEW By Coral Barry
Mauricio Pochettino is expected to ring the changes once again as Tottenham take on Borussia Dortmund for the second time in a week.
Tottenham welcome Dortmund to White Hart Lane with the chance to atone for their 3-0 rout at the hands of the Germans in the first leg of the last-16 tie last Thursday.
Pochettino’s seven changes for that game exposed a youthful Tottenham side to a slick and ruthless Dortmund, but the Argentine coach could once again change virtually his entire team as prioritises Sunday’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth.
Harry Kane, Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Toby Aderweireld and Christian Eriksen could all be rested, while Kyle Walker and Danny Rose could be omitted as the manager once again rotates his full-backs.
Kane scored his 18th and 19th league goals in Spurs’ routine weekend win against Aston Villa, but Nacer Chadli could once again spearhead the attack.
The Belgian is a winger by trade but began the last tie up front and could be supported by 18-year-old Josh Onomah and Son Hueng-min.
Ryan Mason, Ben Davies, Kieran Trippier and Tom Carroll all started the first leg and Pochettino is likely to put his trust in his younger stars once again.
Dortmund dominated Spurs across the pitch in the reverse fixture and, with three goals already in the bank, will be confident of easing into the quarter-finals.
Jan Vertonghen has been making progress in his injury comeback, but is not likely to start after only returning to light training on Sunday.
Tottenham (possible): Lloris; Trippier, Dier, Wimmer, Davies; Mason, Bentaleb; Onomah, Carroll, Son; Chadli.
