Tottenham face Austrian outfit Wolfsberger in the second leg of their last 32 Europa League tie on Wednesday.

Jose Mourinho’s side have one foot in the next round following a comfortable 4-1 victory in Budapest last Thursday, but will be looking for a confidence-boosting win in north London after six defeats in eight matches in all competitions.

However, with Spurs in a commanding position in the tie, Mourinho is expected to rest a number of his key players.

We think there will be one change from the defence that started in Hungary with Japhet Tanganga replacing Eric Dier, whilst Joe Hart should come into the side for his first outing since the FA Cup fourth-round last month.

Mourinho confirmed that the starting line-up against Wolfsberger will be “very similar” to the first leg, which means that Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko are likely to be recalled.

Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Carlos Vinicius will be given some much-needed minutes, whilst Erik Lamela could get the nod over Gareth Bale – with the Welshman expected to be rested ahead of Burnley on Sunday after his impressive second-half against West Ham.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Wolfsberger – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.

Hart, Doherty, Tanganga, Alderweireld, Davies, Sissoko, Winks, Lamela, Alli, Bergwijn, Vinicius.
