Tottenham Hotspur are back at Colchester United where the club suffered an embarrassing exit from the Carabao Cup last month. This time it's the Leasing.com Trophy and Spurs' U21s will take on the challenge of the League Two side at the JobServe Community Stadium on Tuesday night. Five Colchester players who either started that night against Mauricio Pochettino's men or came off the bench are in the starting line-up to face Spurs once again. With various young players out on international duty, including Troy Parrott, Japhet Tanganga and Paris Maghoma, with goalkeeper Brandon Austin getting his first England U21 call-up, others will get a chance to impress in Wayne Burnett's side. Jamie Bowden starts middle in the middle for Spurs before he will head out on international duty with a first call-up to the Ireland U19s squad.
Timothy Eyoma and Tashan Oakley-Boothe, who have both made their debuts under Pochettino, start for Spurs.
