Tottenham can secure their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League if they avoid defeat against LASK on Thursday.

Jose Mourinho’s side have collected nine points from their four Group J matches, and due to their superior head-to-head record against the Austrian’s, need only a point tomorrow.

However, the Spurs boss has a number of injury worries – with Sergio Regulion, Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela, Carlos Vinicius and Harry Kane all unavailable.

With Sundays north London derby in mind, we expect Mourinho to make a host of changes.

Joe Hart will return to the starting XI, whilst the defence is likely to consist of Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies.

Into midfield, Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso will be recalled – with Gareth Bale getting his customary European appearance.

Dele Alli performed well against Ludogorets last Thursday, which should be enough to earn him another opportunity, supporting both Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son, who’ll be the only survivor from the Chelsea draw, in attack.

16-year-old Dane Scarlett and Jack Clarke, who were late substitutes against Ludogorets, have both travelled to Austria and are likely to be included in Tottenham’s 18-man squad.

Predicted XI: Hart, Doherty, Sanchez, Tanganga, Davies, Winks, Lo Celso, Bale, Alli, Lucas, Son.
