Andre Villas-Boas says that he will not rest any players for Tottenham Hotspur's clash with Inter Milan at the San Siro this evening.

Tottenham Hotspur coach Andre Villas-Boas has said that he will not rest any players for tonight's Europa League last-16 second leg with Inter Milan.

The North Londoners lead 3-0 following last week's first leg at White Hart Lane, but will be without star man Gareth Bale, who will serve a one-match suspension.

However, the Portuguese coach believes that his team can cope without the 23-year-old, who has scored 11 goals in his last 10 games.

"I will not rest anyone," Villas-Boas told reporters. "It is an important game for us and I will not take anything for granted. The result from the first leg is not enough.

"It is great for us to play big teams like Inter – we always put in the most amount of work possible, and we will continue to do so.

"This team does not need to prove anything – we have achieved significant results even without Gareth Bale."

The draw for the quarter-finals takes place in Nyon, Switzerland tomorrow.
