The Lilywhites beat the Spanish giants 3-1 at Wembley on 1st November, in the process putting up a strong case for them to finish as the top team in the group.

Tottenham Hotspur have recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory over APOEL in Wednesday night's Champions League clash at Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham have already qualified as the winners of Group H after taking 13 points from their five group games so far, allowing Pochettino to shuffle his pack.

The manager will rest other leading players, including Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane but Alli will play because, according to Pochettino, he is fresh, having sat out the first three Champions League games through suspension.

"I think always it's important to assess the players and be sure that some players need to rest because they are so exhausted and they need to breathe a little bit. I think all the opponents that it is possible we could have in the draw will be strong and good teams but difficult to know and difficult because all the opponents I think they will be difficult opponents".

'It's important that as a team we stay together and keep building'.
