Tottenham will be looking for their third victory in eight days when they travel to Royal Antwerp in the Europa League tomorrow evening.

Spurs comfortably beat LASK in their Group J opener last Thursday before earning a hard-fought win over Burnley on Monday to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to ten matches.

Besides Japhet Tanganga (thigh), Jose Mourinho has no fresh injury concerns heading to Belgium, where he’s expected to make a host of changes ahead of Brighton on Sunday.

We think that Joe Hart will return for his fourth start of the campaign – with Toby Alderweireld the other survivor from Turf Moor – in a back-four alongside Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Sergio Regulion.

In midfielder, Harry Winks, another left out on Monday, starting alongside Giovani Lo Celso, who’ll make his first start since the Maccabi Haifa game earlier this month.

Moving forward, Gareth Bale, Erik Lamela and Steven Bergwijn will support Carlos Vinicius, who impressed against LASK on his Tottenham debut – with Dele Alli missing out.

Here’s the starting line-up we expect the Spurs boss to choose tomorrow:

Predicted XI: Hart, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez Regulion, Winks, Lo Celso, Bergwijn, Lamela, Bale, Vinicius.



  1. That is Sanchez spot, not be cause of his own goal. He just cannot play on the left side of the defense. My quess he will see time on the right only if Toby falter. I would rather see a back three of Toby -Dier- Davies/ Rodon so Requilon can get on and in the attack. Also, once Rodon is ready, the first choice paring would be him and Dier.

  2. Hopefully Rodon, but we don’t know what we’ve bought with him yet or even if he can successfully step up so let’s not be calling him first choice just yet. Would still have Toby ahead of Dier. Dier can’t cope if the play isn’t in front of him.
