As for the hosts, ex-Tottenham midfielder Sigurdsson makes his home debut having already featured away from Goodison Park against Hajduk Split and Chelsea. Sandro Ramirez leads the line and will be supported by Rooney as well as Davy Klaassen.

Spurs go into the game on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Burnley before the international break and are searching for their first win since overcoming Newcastle United on the opening weekend of the new season.

Meanwhile, the home side’s unbeaten start to the campaign was brought to an end last time out as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
