    After a tough but rewarding European night at Wembley, we play there again against a struggling Swansea side.

    They looked poor against Newcastle, but as seen with Burnley, teams raise their games at Wembley.

    Dele returns from suspension, apart from that then no new injuries.

    - Lloris -
    - Alderweireld Sanchez Vertonghen -
    - Aurier Dembele Dier Davies -
    - Dele Eriksen -
    - Kane -
    I think Dembele will get another game then rested vs Barnsley next week. Dele back in with Son off the bench. Aurier was immense vs Dortmund so should start, Poch loves a rotate though.

    Swansea won't roll over, but if we can get 3 wins on the trott (Dortmund, Swansea and Barnsley) it should put any rumours of a hoodoo to bed.

    I want to see Winks get some minutes in this one.

    Would hate to see him go backwards after last season and just warm the bench.

    I'd get him in for Dembele with 30 left, then a full game against Barnsley.

    Dembele shouldn't be near the pitch after tonight. Looked tired and playing again on Saturday wouldn't be smart.

    Already knackered wanyama by playing him when obviously unfit. Let's hope the coaching staff have learnt a lesson.

    Winks, sissoko, Dele. All will be fresher, and I would say winks arguably needs to start against one of the lesser physical sides in the league.

    Winksy to start for me. Give Dembele a week and a half off I think he showed real guts in the 2nd half after being dragged all over the gaff in the 1st

    Yeah Dortmund were all over the place the second half.
    I don't mind if he is on the subs bench Saturday as a last resort but really he should be rested based on tonight.

    Be good to see Winks back in the side bossing tom Carroll.

    Has to be the same team as tonight.

    If anything, rest Dembele and get Sissoko back in there or start Eriksen or Alli a little deeper next to Dier.

    Barnsley next week, so all these players can go and get a rest then.

    Would it be outrageous to suggest Son get a start ahead of Dele ?

    Not gonna lie and I'm not usually the type to do this...

    Terrified of this match.

    Coming off a big, huge win at Wembley, great for the club, the squad and the fans...could see us coming out really flat. Need to be professional and get up for Swansea or we will get Burnley'd again.

    I'll call it squeaky bum 1-0 Spurs.

    Yeah I think it's going to be the complete opposite. If it were a more competent team than Swansea maybe but I think we are going to be on such a high from beating Dortmund that we are just going to steamroll the Swans.

    Dele should start simply because of the CL ban. Otherwise I'd agree.

    If we risk Son getting injured we're looking extremely thin in AM without GKN, Lamela, Dele or Son.

    I would go with this, another option is bringing Eriksen back alongside Dier and putting Son in behind. I actually would like to see this at some point as Eriksen has been playing deeper recently.

    Play our game & we win this quite comfortably, make them do all the running around chasing the ball.

    Will there be any post champion league tiredness? I don't know , why are you asking me? I didn't fucking play did I ! It's just question after question with you isn't it!?! Maybe if you read a bit more rather than looking at porn all day you'd have some answers! I'm not a bloody computer am I!?

    Go to your room & do your homework.

    The more I think about, I think you're right. Winks or Sissoko to get a start wth Dembele on the bench.

    Sissoko played well vs Everton, and deserves another shot, but Winks needs a start. If we can keep Dembele rested for
    West Ham next week, where we'll need him more.

    Trippier Winks and Dele on for this. If all things go well I'd even give Llorente 30 mins as a prequel to a start against Barnsley
