Spurs will hope their travelling contingent will return with smiles on their faces as well as three points, but face a tough task against an out of sorts but wounded animal in Bayer.

Spurs will hope to get back to winning ways on Tuesday after drawing 1-1 with West Brom
The German outfit were beaten by Werder Bremen 2-1 on Saturday but did beat Borussia Dortmund in their previous outing at the BayArena.
Tottenham did not fare much better on the weekend as they slumped to a 1-1 draw against West Brom after such a rousing performance at home to Manchester City before the international break.
Nacer Chadli, who left White Hart Lane in the summer, put the Baggies ahead on 82 minutes but Dele Alli managed to grab his side a point at the Hawthorns.

The England international said the result was a ‘tough one to take’ and called on his team-mates to be clinical without the currently sidelined Harry Kane.
‘When we are playing as well as we did against West Brom – when we dominated the game from the start – it is important we are clinical with chances.’ said Alli.
‘Even if the keeper is playing well we have to make sure we score. It is a tough one to take, we feel like we should have left with three points.’
