Tottenham v Panathinaikos line-ups

Brad Friedel will make his first start in a month as Tottenham look to book their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League with a draw against Panathinaikos at White Hart Lane tonight.

Friedel captains a strong-looking Spurs team that also included recalled trio Kyle Walker, Emmanuel Adebayor and young midfielder Tom Carroll.

Panathinaikos manager Juan Roman Rocha leaves out Quincy Owusu-Abeyie after the former Arsenal forward suffered a hamstring injury.

Subs: Cudicini, Huddlestone, Livermore, Townsend, Stewart, Dembele, Sigurdsson

Panathinaikos: Karnezis, Sissoko, Vitolo, Mavrias, Toché, Seitaridis, Zeca, Sow, Vyntra, Spyropoulos, Triantafyllopoulos

Subs: Kapino, Christodoulopoulos, Fornaroli, Marinos, Petropoulos, Chouchoumis, Valazquez

Referee: Pawel Gil (Poland)
