[Teams] Bayern Munich vs Tottenham: Confirmed line-ups for Champions League clash

Tottenham are already missing the likes of Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele because of injuries, and it is up to some of the fringe players now to step up to the plate and prove a point to the manager.

"This is a great opportunity for some of them to play, for some of them to show what they are capable of".

"I arrive in mid-season, without four, five, six weeks to work and know the players - so we have to do everything while we are running".

He said at a press conference: "Tottenham had some chances before we could equalise, but then we took every chance in the second half and it would be nice if we manage to do that again tomorrow and we want to give the fans a good game". I left Harry Kane at home, and I expect Lewandowski to play.

Bayern handed Tottenham a 7-2 thrashing in the reverse fixture in October and Spurs will be looking to make amends for that embarrassing night in London.

"Because I don't think to leave at all".

They have admitted to becoming too reliant on Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 10 goals in the five Champions League games this season, and Mourinho tried to play mind tricks with his opposite number Hans Dieter Flick. At home in this one, Bayern can get a few bench players some minutes and rest stars for this weekend's league clash. "I think the boys need me and my job is to help them".
