Overview

Tottenham welcome their former manager Harry Redknapp this weekend as they face QPR in their first home game of the season. It will be consecutive London derby's for Spurs, after they beat West Ham United 0-1 on the opening day of the season at Upton Park.

Mauricio Pochettino will welcome back Emmanuel Adebayor, Christian Eriksen, Younes Kaboul and Aaron Lennon, who were rested for the midweek Europa League game. He will also have Belgian trio Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen and Nacer Chadli along with Brazilian Paulinho available, all late arrivals after their post World Cup break.

Lots of focus has been on the return of their former manager Redknapp, who took them into the Champions League during his tenure. However, it's Redknapp assistant Glenn Hoddle, a Spurs legend from his playing days, who is expected to get a hero's reception from the White Hart Lane faithful.

Harry Redknapp

Meanwhile, QPR will hope to open their account with their first points of the season, following their home loss to Hull City on the opening day. Redknapp has strengthened the team following the defeat on the opening day and will have Mauricio Isla and Leroy Fer available for selection.

However, new signing Eduardo Vargas will miss the game as he is yet to attain a work permit post his loan move from Serie A club Napoli.

Stat of the Match: Tottenham have won their last six matches in a row against promoted teams and are unbeaten in 12. The last promoted team to beat Spurs was QPR back in April, 2012.

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham): "I never talk about different players. I know Rémy because he is a good player, an international player. But, yes, he is fast and we need to be ready in the game on Sunday because he is a very good player."

Harry Redknapp (QPR): "I shouldn't get a bad reception, but that doesn't concern me. All I'm worried about is my QPR team going there and putting on a performance and hopefully getting all three points. They are a top side who should be pushing for the top four, like they were when I was there."
