Modric, Defoe, Gomes among Tottenham starters for PAOK meeting

Harry Redknapp has gone with a fairly strong Tottenham line-up for tonight's Europa League outing with Greek club PAOK Salonika.

Heurelho Gomes has been handed a start in goal and will be shielded by a back four of Vedran Corluka, William Gallas, Sebastien Bassong and Danny Rose.

Redknapp has deployed Luka Modric alongside the promising Jake Livermore in midfield with Aaron Lennon and Steven Pienaar playing out wide whilst youngster Harry Kane will be joined by Jermain Defoe up front.

Carlo Cudicini will act as back-up to Gomes with Gareth Bale, Iago Falque, Kyle Walker, Andros Townsend, Ryan Fredericks and Tom Carroll also on the bench.

Spurs sit third on the Group A table on seven points, one behind tonight's opponents PAOK, and three in arrears of Rubin Kazan who beat Shamrock Rovers 4-1 tonight.
