Spurs managed to maintain their unbeaten start in the Premier League but West Brom gave them a good run for their money. Dele Alli struck very late to prevent the Baggies from getting away with all three points after former Spurs winger Nacer Chadli gave the hosts 1-0 lead. Tottenham will turn their attention back to the Champions League now as they travel to the BayArena on Tuesday to take on the mighty Bayer Leverkusen.

It looks like Group E could be one of the most competitive groups in the Champions League this time around. Monaco are leading the group with four points while Spurs are sitting second with three. Leverkusen have two points on board, while CSKA Moscow have registered a solitary point with a draw against Leverkusen. Spurs will be eager to get back to winning ways beating Roger Schmidt’s side. It has been a rollercoaster start to the season from the German contingent who have won just two of their last six games in all competitions.

Here is the predicted Spurs lineup against Bayer Leverkusen.


Skipper Hugo Lloris will definitely start between the sticks ahead of Michel Vorm. We expect Kyle Walker to keep his place in the right-back position. Spurs dealt a hammer blow with the injury to Toby Alderweireld on Saturday against West Brom. The Belgian, who is a key defender at White Hart Lane, was taken off on a stretcher on the hour mark and looks certain to miss the trip to Germany. With the Belgian ruled out, we expect Eric Dier to start at the heart of the defence alongside Jan Vertonghen.

Kevin Wimmer is also an option but the Austrian is a left-footed centre-back and won’t be able to partner left-footed Vertonghen. Danny Rose missed the last game with fatigue and is likely to be rested against Leverkusen too. Therefore, Ben Davies is likely to keep his place in the left-back position.


Victor Wanyama has done an excellent job since joining Spurs this summer and should retain his position in the middle of the park. We expect Mousa Dembele to get a start alongside Wanyama as Spurs will want more control in the game.

Christian Eriksen is likely to start on the left flank. Dele Alli should start as the number ten with Erik Lamela starting on the right flank.


Vincent Janssen started against West Brom up front and once again failed to deliver. We expect the Dutchman to make way from former Bayer Leverkusen forward Son Heung-Min who is in a scintillating form at the moment.
