Harry Kane starts on the bench for Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Fiorentina in the Europa League.

Harry Kane will start on the bench for Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Fiorentina in the Europa League tonight.

Nacer Chadli returns to lead the line for the Premier League visitors in one of six changes to the side that stunned title rivals Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino keeps faith in Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min as support for Chadli up front, but brings in Tom Carroll and Ryan Mason at defensive midfield in place of Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier, who are named among the subs.

Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer stay put at the heart of the Spurs defence, while Ben Davies is in for Danny Rose on the left and Kieran Trippier displaces Kyle Walker on the right.

Hugo Lloris misses the trip with a shoulder injury, meaning a start for Michel Vorm between the sticks in Florence.

For the Serie A side, Paulo Sousa makes four alterations to the team that defeated Inter in the league on Sunday, with Nikola Kalinic dropping to the bench in favour of Mauro Zarate up front.

Nenad Tomovic comes in for Facundo Roncaglia in the back four, while Tino Costa and Jakub Blaszczykowski are preferred to Matias Vecino, who is benched, and Barcelona loanee Cristian Tello.

Fiorentina: Tatarusanu, Gonzalo, Tomovic, Astori, Alonso, Costa, Kuba, Borja, Zarate, Bernardeschi, Ilicic
Subs: Sepe, Badelj, Vecino, Kalinic, Fernandez, Pasqual, El Babacar

Tottenham Hotspur: Vorm; Trippier, Alderweireld, Wimmer, Davies; Carroll, Mason; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Chadli
Subs: McGee, Rose, Walker, Dembele, Dier, Onomah, Kane
