Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham LIVE commentary: Harry Kane boasts stunning goal record against German teams as Spurs look to bounce back from Arsenal defeat – kick-off time, team news, how to follow

Tottenham will need to bounce back from a disappointing derby day defeat quickly when they return to Champions League action against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Spurs saw their undefeated start to the Premier League season come to an emphatic end on Saturday following a 3-1 loss to rivals Arsenal.

Antonio Conte’s side had already tasted defeat before that though, with their last European outing ending in a 2-0 humbling to Sporting Lisbon.

That result meant Tottenham are joint-second in Group D with Frankfurt, with whoever wins this one surely seizing the initiative.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham: Team news

The hosts are set to be without Kristijan Jakic after he picked up an injury while on international duty with Croatia.

Both clubs saw a player sent off at the weekend but like Emerson Royal, Randal Kolo Muani’s red card in Frankfurt’s 2-0 win over Union Berlin will not carry over into European competition.

That’s one relief for Spurs, who are facing a mounting injury problem with Dejan Kulusevksi, Ben Davies and Lucas Moura all struggling.

Ryan Sessegnon could be among the fresh faces introduced by Conte, with veteran Ivan Perisic afforded a rest.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham: What has been said?

Speaking after the defeat to Arsenal, Conte said: “I spoke with the players and said to try and move on quickly because sometimes you have a strange game.

“I think today was a game that after the first half we felt the possibility to win the game because we had the chances that we should exploit much better. In the second half to concede the goal quickly and then the red card, the game changed totally.

“Now I think we have to move on and know we have to take the positivity of this game. Also we have to try and improve the situation that cost us defeat.

“We have to prepare for the next game, in only three days we have to play against Frankfurt and this has to be a big push.”

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham: Match facts

  • Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has scored in all four of his UEFA Champions League appearances against German opponents, netting five goals (four in three vs Borussia Dortmund, one in one vs Bayern Munich). He has more goals against teams from Germany than any other nation.
