MIDFIELD

Serge Aurier (Right wing-back) – The first change in question should be Aurier handed his Spurs debut and defensive midfielder Kieran Trippier should be dropped from the team. Although, the latter showed a decent display against Everton, but the club summer signing Aurier is more experienced on the European stage and would be more effective against the German side.

Eric Dier (Centre-midfield) – Dier looks set to play in the midfield this season after been utilized in the defensive role last season and he should retain his place after a very assured performance against Everton.

Mousa Dembele (Centre-midfield) – The second change should see Dembele come into the starting XI and see team-mate Moussa Sissoko axed, despite Sissoko’s brilliant performance at the weekend. Dembele is a much more assured football and his physical presence will be key in Spurs winning the midfield battle over Dortmund.

Ben Davies (Left wing-back) – The Wales international continues to impress in the absence of Pochettino first choice Danny Rose who is out of team injured. Davies is Tottenham’s best man available for the Champions League, where he needs to show the same attacking intent he does in the Premier League.
