Jose Mourinho will take control of Tottenham in the Champions League for the first time on Tuesday night as the Londoners aim to book their place in the knockout stages.

A victory against Olympiacos will be enough for Spurs to secure safe passage through the group, so Mourinho has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Despite the return to fitness of Jan Vertonghen and Tanguy Ndombele, we think there will be just one change made to the line-up that beat West Ham United 3-2 on Saturday.

Ben Davies limped off with an ankle injury against West Ham and has been ruled out, meaning Danny Rose will almost certainly come in at left-back.

Other than that, there is a good chance Mourinho will stick with a winning team. That means Davinson Sanchez will continue partnering Toby Alderweireld at centre-back, while Eric Dier and Harry Winks will start again in midfield.

Serge Aurier will be rewarded for his fine assist at the weekend, and it would be foolish to drop any of the front four, who all played crucial roles in Mourinho’s first match. Christian Eriksen, therefore, will be on the bench again.

Here’s our predicted line-up to face Olympiacos – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
