Tottenham resume their Europa League campaign when they travel to  Wolfsberger in the first leg of their last 32 tie on Thursday.

Jose Mourinho’s team are in desperate need of a confidence-boosting victory following five defeats in their previous six matches in all competitions.

We think the Spurs boss will shuffle his pack, although Mourinho confirmed that he is going to play his strongest team for the game in Austria.

Despite making mistakes in three of Tottenham’s previous five matches, Hugo Lloris should keep his place, as should Japhet Tanganga, although possibly moving over to centre-half.

With Sergio Regulion out injured, Ben Davies, who remains Spurs’ only left-sided option, will start once again – and we think both Matt Doherty and Toby Alderweireld will too.

Into midfield, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg should partner Harry Winks, whilst Dele Alli could be handed his first start since the FA Cup tie at Marine last month.

Meanwhile, with Carlos Vinicius simply not cutting it, Harry Kane should be joined in attack by Steve Bergwijn and Gareth Bale – with Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son all getting well-deserved rests having started the last three games in all competitions.

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

XI: Lloris, Doherty, Tanganga, Alderweireld, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Alli, Bergwijn, Bale, Kane.
