Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas wants his team to complete their perfect group campaign by beating Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League tonight.

A win would see Spurs finish on the maximum 18 points from their six games. Tottenham have only conceded one goal in their five matches so far.

Victory would also continue an encouraging run of form since the 6-0 drubbing at Manchester City that has seen Villas-Boas' side win three games and draw one against Manchester United.

"Another win would be brilliant for us," Spurs manager Villas-Boas said.

"It would really complete a good group run; completely different to the one we had last year.

"It would be good to finish on 18 points. We are qualified and Anzhi are as well. They go on a two-month break now for their winter break, so all of this adds to special circumstances in a game.

"But we will try to motivate our players to focus on a win and achieve 18 points and go through the game without any injuries."

Tottenham are expected to name a young team but Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen are available after they overcame their respective toe and ankle injuries.
