Pochettino will be hopeful that Dier, Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker can help give Spurs that advantage when it comes to playing at Wembley due to their experience at the ground with England.
Tottenham will go in to Wednesday’s match with Monaco high in confidence, following their 4-0 win over Stoke on Saturday.
Pochettino’s side have started the new campaign well and currently sit fourth in the Premier League with eight points.
