Tottenham Hotspur will step in to banish the memories of last few under reserved performances when they host Red Star Belgrade at North London.
On Tuesday night, Mauricio Pochettino’s squad will be welcoming the last season’s Europa League fighters. Spurs, who finished as runners-up last season, have only took a point from couple of their games and Poch would fancy this one to get some momentum their way.
A win for Spurs will give their uphill struggle a break and help them put their legs on winning gas.
