By , Editor-in-chief | 1y

Fernando Llorente leads the Tottenham Hotspur line tonight as they welcome APOEL to Wembley in their final Champions League group game.

Just three players keep their places from the 1-1 draw at Watford on Saturday, while the likes of Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier are rested entirely as Spurs are already assured top spot in Group H.

Llorente starts up front against the Cypriot side, with support from Son Heung-min, who claimed the equaliser against the Hornets four days ago.

Dele Alli is joined in midfield by the returning Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou and in the backline, Serge Aurier, Juan Foyth and Danny Rose come in alongside Davinson Sanchez. Michel Vorm takes up the gloves tonight in lieu of Lloris.

Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies and Mousa Dembele are demoted to the bench tonight, where they are joined by youngsters Kyle Walker-Peters, Luke Amos and Kazaiah Sterling.

As for the visitors, manager Giorgos Donis makes six changes following his side's 2-1 win over Ermis in the Cypriot First Division on Saturday.

Mickael Pote is picked to lead the line, with Nuno Morais, Vinicius and Efstathios Aloneftis coming into the midfield alongside Lorenzo Ebecilio and Ghayas Zahid.

Nauzet Perez stays put between the posts, while Carlao - passed fit despite ankle concerns - and Praxitelis Vouros are joined in the back line by Spanish duo Roberto Lago and Jesus Rueda.

Tottenham Hotspur: Vorm; Aurier, Sanchez, Foyth, Rose; Winks, Sissoko, Alli, Nkoudou; Son; Llorente
Subs: Gazzaniga, Davies, Vertonghen, Walker-Peters, Amos, Dembele, Sterling

APOEL: Perez; Carlao, Lago, Rueda, Vouros; Ebecilio, Vinicius, Zahid, Morais, Aloneftis; Pote
