Son Heung-min starts as Tottenham Hotspur welcome Swansea City to Wembley this evening.

The South Korean was on target for Spurs in the 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night and is rewarded with a starting berth tonight, linking up with Dele Alli as support for Harry Kane.

Ben Davies is the man to drop out as Mauricio Pochettino shuffles his pack to accommodate Son's arrival, with Kieran Trippier dropping into the right-back position and Jan Vertonghen moving over to the left.

Christian Eriksen, Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier form the midfield, while Trippier and Vertonghen link up with Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez in the back four in front of Hugo Lloris between the posts.

For the visitors, Paul Clement makes one alteration to the side that lost 1-0 to Newcastle United last weekend, bringing in Mike van der Hoorn and switching to a five-man defence.

Leroy Fer is the man to drop out of the starting XI as a result, with Jordan Ayew and Tammy Abraham up front and Sam Clucas, Renato Sanches and Tom Carroll in a three-man midfield.

Van der Hoorn slots in alongside Federico Fernandez and Alfie Mawson in the heart of the backline, with Kyle Naughton operating at right-back, Martin Olsson on the left and Lukasz Fabianski in goal.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Dier, Sissoko, Eriksen; Son, Dele; Kane
Subs: Vorm, Aurier, Davies, Foyth, Dembele, Winks, Llorente

Swansea City: Fabianski; Naughton, van der Hoorn, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Clucas, Sanches, Carroll; Ayew, Abraham
Subs: Nordfeldt, Rangel, Roque Mesa, Fer, Routledge, Narsingh, Bony
