Jose Mourinho has named a very strong side and made just four changes for Tottenham’s Europa League second round qualifier in Bulgaria against Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

Japhet Tanganga (thigh) remains sidelined, whilst Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli have all been left at home – with Sunday’s visit to Southampton in mind.

There’s one change to the back-four, with Davinson Sanchez replacing the Belgian, whilst Moussa Sissoko starts next to summer signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Moving forward, Lo Celso makes his first appearance since July – joining Steven Bergwijn, Heung Min Son and Harry Kane in an exciting forward line for Spurs.

Gedson Fernandes has been left out of the squad, but young USA defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is on the bench and could make his first appearance for Spurs since January 2017 if needed, as is Tanguy Ndombele.
