Monday’s open training session may have given us a clue concerning Tottenham’s starting line-up against Olympiacos.
A victory over the Greek giants on Tuesday night will see Spurs qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
The players prepared for the game in front of the watching media on Monday. Fans were also given the chance to watch online – you can check out part of the session here.
The London Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick was in attendance. He noted that Jose Mourinho worked with the players who started against West Ham, while the rest of the squad was drilled in a separate group.
Does this suggest Mourinho will go with the same XI that beat West Ham?

Perhaps not. Ben Davies was not present at training after limping off on Saturday, so Danny Rose is likely to come in at left-back.
Other than that, though, there is a chance Mourinho will reward the weekend starters with another run-out against Olympiacos.
