Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is set to make numerous changes for Thursday’s Europa Conference League clash with NS Mura in Group G.
The Lilywhites will be without the suspended Cristian Romero – although he is in the treatment room anyway – while Giovani Lo Celso remains uncertain through injury.
Conte has affirmed that he will rotate his resources for this clash, most likely starting with Hugo Lloris being granted a rest as Pierluigi Gollini is handed the gloves.
Japhet Tanganga could keep his place in the back three, but Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon will expect to start over Eric Dier and Ben Davies.
Oliver Skipp is back from a domestic ban and could demote Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg down to the bench, with Tanguy Ndombele also seeking to force his way in over Harry Winks.
Completing the midfield, Ryan Sessegnon‘s return to fitness ought to see him feature on the left as Matt Doherty returns to his favoured wing-back role on the opposite side.
It is difficult to see a spot for Dele Alli in Conte’s 3-4-3 system, as Bryan Gil and Steven Bergwijn look to start out wide, while Harry Kane may hold his place up top unless Conte decides to take a punt on Dane Scarlett in a youthful attack.
Tottenham possible starting lineup: Gollini; Tanganga, Sanchez, Rodon; Doherty, Skipp, Ndombele, Sessegnon; Gil, Kane, Bergwijn
