It appears as though Harry Redknapp is not going to allow his star players to board any flights between now and December, with a youthful Tottenham squad set to travel to Greece, Russia and Ireland over the coming months.
Spurs should finish in the top two of Group A without too much fuss, although whether they should be strong favourites to win away to PAOK is another matter, with the team selected likely to be unrecognisable from the one that won at Wolves on Saturday.
The visitors are 6/4 (bet365 – £200 free bets) at the time of writing and it might be the case that their odds drift even more as we approach kick-off, with Redknapp more concerned with beating Liverpool on Sunday and working the team up the Premier League.
PAOK Salonika finished third in the Greek league last season and will fancy their chances of an early three points in Group A, with Sky Bet (£35 free betting) offering 2/1 that the home side are triumphant. They will certainly not want to go to Russia at the end of the month with no points on the board.
Emmanuel Adebayor (11/2 bet365) and Jermain Defoe (7/1) were both on the scoresheet at Molineux, although it is likely to be Gio Dos Santos and Roman Pavlyuchenko (7/1) that lead the line for Spurs.
