Tottenham return to Europa League action on Thursday evening when they host Dinamo Zagreb.

With the north London derby less than 72 hours later, Jose Mourinho will make changes, but is still expected to name a strong side to face the Croatian leaders.

We think there will be eight from the Crystal Palace victory – with Hugo Lloris, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Kane the three survivors from the weekend.

Ben Davies will replace Sergio Regulion at left-back, whilst the fit again Serge Aurier should come in for Matt Doherty on the other side – with Eric Dier making his first appearance since the last round.

Tanguy Ndombele was rested on Sunday and will return to partner Moussa Sissoko – with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg sitting this one out.

Moving forward, we believe that Heung Min Son and Gareth Bale will also be rested ahead of the Arsenal game, meaning Erik Lamela, Steven Bergwijn and Dele Alli should all be recalled and support Kane upfront.

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

Lloris, Aurier, Dier, Sanchez, Davies, Sissoko, Ndombele, Bergwijn, Alli, Lamela, Kane.
