Benfica will have a fresh team for the trip to Tottenham having rested the likes of Artur Moraes and Oscar Cardozo for the win over Estoril at the weekend.
However, Eduardo Salvio is doubtful with flu.
Lubomir Fejsa misses out through injury.
Tottenham face their first significant test in their Europa League campaign, hosting a Benfica side who are running away with the Liga Sagres title and have won their last 8 matches and 15 of their last 16 in all competitions.
They also have not lost since early November (at Olympiakos) and have barely even conceded at home all season, so Spurs need a positive result to take to Portugal next week.
Tim Sherwood's men have been slow starters for much of his reign, but after losing 4-0 to Chelsea last week, should come out ready for a fight. This should be an interesting game between two strong teams who may just cancel each other out.
