Tottenham vs Monaco 
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 14 September 2016
Kick-off Time: 19:45 BST - 20:45 CET 
Venue: Wembley Stadium, London 

Tottenham team have started their season in an impressive and solid way. They opened with a 1-1 draw at Everton before clinching a nervous 1-0 win over Crystal Palace. Then, Spurs recorded a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane against Liverpool before the International break and hammered Stoke City 4-1 away from home last weekend when Harry Kane found the back of the net fr the first time this season.
Left back Danny Rose is the only injured player for the Lilywhites. Dembele is expected to replace Victor Wanyama in the middle of the park while Vincent Janssen will start as central forward as Harry Kane is likely to be rested. Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela will replace Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in the offensive midfield trio while Son Heung-Min will retain his starting berth.
AS Monaco have started the new campaign phenomenally well. They knocked out Fenerbahce and Villarreal in the UCL qualifying stages and are flying high in the Ligue 1 where they are currently table toppers with 10 points in 4 games. Monaco beat Nantes 1-0 in the opener, trashed PSG 3-1 in the 2nd matchweek and 4-1 Lille away form home last weekend.
Strikers Guido Carrillo, Kylian Mbappe-Lottin and Radamel Falcao could all miss out through injury. Danijel Subasic could come back into the side between the sticks having missed last time out. Benjamin Mendy is sidelined while Thomas Lemar is a major doubt. Valre Germain is expected to lead the line, with Joao Moutinho supporting him from a number ten position.

Probable lineups
Tottenham: Lloris – Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies – Dier, Wanyama – Lamela, Alli, Eriksen – Kane.
Monaco: Subasic – Raggi, Glik, Jemerson, Sidibe – Fabinho, Bakayoko – Dirar, Moutinho, Silva – Germain.
