Spurs vs AEL - team news
27 August 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Vlad Chiriches returns but Mauricio Pochettino reports that Roberto Soldado is out of our Europa League play-off, second leg against AEL Limassol on Thursday night.
The striker fired home the equaliser as we came from behind to win the first leg 2-1 in Cyprus last week but misses the return at the Lane due to injury.
Mauricio explained: "It’s difficult for Roberto to play tomorrow because he is stiff in his back and his neck, so he’s out of the squad."
Vlad is available after missing our first three matches of the campaign with a back injury. Kyle Walker (pelvis) remains out.
