Tottenham Hotspur will look to complete the formalities tonight as they take a 5-0 lead back to White Hart Lane for their second leg Europa League play-off tie against Hearts.
Spurs all but sealed their path through to the next round thanks to goals from Rafael Van der Vaart, Jake Livermore, Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale at Tynecastle last week, and with a tough tie against Manchester City in store on Sunday, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is likely to make a host of changes to the side that went down 3-0 against Manchester United on Monday.

It’s not all good news for Redknapp however as he continues to struggle to persuade midfielder Luka Modric that his future lies in North London.
Modric opted to sit out the defeat against Manchester United amidst rumours of an improved offer from Chelsea that would test Tottenham’s resolve to keep hold of one of their star players, and Redknapp is considering throwing the Croatian into the action against Hearts, should he shake of the slight hamstring niggle he picked up in training.
Promising youngsters Harry Kane and Tom Carroll could make their debuts for Spurs, while veteran goalkeeper Brad Friedel is expected to continue in goal after his excellent performance at Old Trafford.
Steven Pienaar (groin), Wilson Palacios (knee), Jermaine Jenas (Achilles), Ledley King (knee), Alan Hutton (knee), William Gallas (calf) and Sandro (knee) are all unavailable for the game with the likes of Livermore, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Andros Townsend should get a chance to shine.
Hearts boss Paulo Sergio has expressed a desire to salvage some pride following his side’s disastrous performance last time round.
Sergio revealed on Wednesday that Jamie MacDonald, Ryan McGowan, Marius , Zaliukas, Eggert Jonsson, Scott Robinson, Arvydas Novikovas, Rudi Skacel and Gordon Smith would all come back into the side having missed the action last week, but Kevin Kyle and Stephen Elliot have been left behind ahead of Hearts crucial game against Hibernian on Sunday.
