By Jack Johnson

Tottenham can qualify for the Champions League last 16 with a win over Sporting Lisbon tonight.

Spurs are top of Group D but know that defeat in north London could actually see them knocked out if results go against them.

The hosts lost the reverse fixture in Lisbon, but Sporting have since fallen to successive defeats to Marseille to blow the group wide open.

Former Spurs man Marcus Edwards was in scintillating form against Antonio Conte’s men and returns to north London knowing he could help knock his former team out.

But Tottenham will still start this game as favourites as they hope to rediscover their form in Europe following defeats to Manchester United and Newcastle in the Premier League.
