Oliver Skipp (infection), Rodrigo Bentancur (ankle), Japhet Tanganga (knee) and Lucas Moura (hitting) remain sidelined, leaving Conte out of options at the Riverside Stadium tonight.
“We have the same players, the same squad that we had for Leeds,” manager Antonio Conte said on Monday. “No Skipp, no Tanganga, no Moura, no Bentancur.”
Substitute goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini returns to the squad after missing two games through illness.
With Spurs’ next Premier League game, at home to Everton, postponed until Monday, Spurs have six days off after ‘Boro and Conte has therefore opted for a strong squad. Davinson Sanchez and Steven Bergwijn may have both hoped to start, but have to settle for a place on the bench.
Eric Dier and Heung-min Son are starters, while Sergio Reguilon is among the substitutes after missing the last four games.
With limited options in midfield, Harry Winks and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg leave.
