Jose Mourinho has confirmed his starting XI for Tottenham’s Europa League opener against Austrian outfit LASK.
Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga remain sidelined through injury – with Spurs boss making a total of eight changes from Sunday’s draw against West Ham.
Joe Hart makes his first start appearance since the play-off victory over Maccabi Haifa earlier this month – with Ben Davies coming into the heart of the Tottenham defence alongside Davinson Sanchez, whilst Matt Doherty also returns.
Sergio Regulion and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are the only other survivors from the Hammers draw – with Harry Winks, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura all earning starts.
In attack, Gareth Bale makes his first start since his return to Spurs, whilst there’s a debut for on-loan Benfica striker Carlos Vinicius.
Mourinho has named a strong bench, which includes the likes of Heung Min Son and Harry Kane – plus the returning Giovani Lo Celso and youngster Jack Clarke.
Check the full starting XI below.
📋 Hart, Doherty, Sanchez, Davies (C), Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Winks, Lamela, Bale, Lucas, Vinicius.
