Tottenham play their penultimate game before the international break when they travel to Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday.
Following tomorrow’s game, Jose Mourinho’s side play West Brom in the Premier League on Sunday and could move to the top of the table with a third consecutive league victory.
Ahead of that match, we think the Spurs boss will make changes in Bulgaria, but will name a stronger side than in Antwerp last Thursday – although Serge Aurier, Sergio Regulion and Erik Lamela have been ruled out.
Joe Hart was unfortunate to miss out in Belgium, but should return to the starting XI – with two changes to the defence from Brighton as Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies could start.
We believe that Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will keep his place, whilst Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso are likely to sit alongside the Danish midfielder.
Mourinho already confirmed that Gareth Bale will start once again, supporting Heung Min Son and Carlos Vinicius in attack – with Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn not doing enough in Belgium last Thursday to warrant another start, whilst Harry Kane is likely to be rested.
Here’s our predicted XI to face Ludogorets– what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
XI: Hart, Doherty, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Hojbjerg, Lo Celso, Bale, Son, Vinicius.
