AC Milan's Clarence Seedorf has singled out fellow countryman Rafael van der Vaart as the danger man for Tottenham ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash.
Spurs travel to the San Siro on Tuesday for the first- leg of their last of 16 clash having topped their first-round group.
With Gareth Bale not playing, Van der Vaart is set to be Spurs' main supply line in Milan and Seedorf admits his fellow Dutchman is their biggest danger.
"I see Van der Vaart as the main threat in the Spurs game," Seedorf told skysports.com.
"We are obliged to stop him, to prevent the forwards receiving many dangerous balls."
Seedorf remains confident that Milan can progress, stating: "Milan are in a good moment for this round against Tottenham.
"Now our challenge is to win, to fly to London with a high percentage of progressing.
"Tottenham is not Man Utd or Chelsea, but as an English club, as always, it will be difficult.
"Spurs have had a big first phase in Europe, but now is the key moment for the season.
"For me Milan remains the favourite but the second match is away and we need to try and keep them goalless, also as we are favourites there will be less pressure on them.
"The team with the least nerves will get through to the quarter-finals."
