Pochettino will be without Jan Vertonghen and Clinton N’Jie (both knee) while Nacer Chadli and Nabil Bentaleb will be pushing to feature after respective ankle problems.

Paulo Sousa’s Fiorentina also picked up an important win on Sunday – edging European rivals Inter 2-1 to move into Serie A’s final Champions League spot.

After some rocky form during December and January, Fiorentina are now unbeaten in five matches and have yet to lose – or concede a goal – in five home encounters against English teams.

“We’re happy to be in the Europa League. It’s a prestigious competition for the club and for the city,” said Sousa who is set to be without Milan Badelj (thigh) again.

“This group has really improved over the course of the campaign. The lads know what they’re capable of now.

“I think the squad has matured as a group and that’s down to all the hard work they’ve put in.

“Even though perhaps we’ve not always been consistent in our play, our fitness has been good throughout the season – our analysis shows that.”
