Tottenham Hotspur face Wolfsberger AC once again as the two sides lock horns in north London on Thursday. The Lilywhites have an astounding 4-1 aggregate lead heading into this game – making them the undisputed favourites to advance through to the next stage. It should give Jose Mourinho the incentive to ring in the changes as he shifts his focus back to the Premier League.
Predicted Tottenham Lineup Vs Wolfsberger AC
Mourinho is likely to recall Matt Doherty back into the starting eleven following Japhet Tanganga’s poor performance at right-back in the last game against West Ham. The Irishman should add some attacking intent on the flanks, and in order to balance the books, Sergio Reguilon could make way for the more defensive-minded Ben Davies on the opposite flank.
There could be further changes in central defence, with Toby Alderweireld hoping to partner new signing Joe Rodon, at the expense of Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez. Both the defenders were incompetent in dealing with the threat of theWest Ham attackers on the weekend, so they may have to settle for a place on the bench on this one.
There should be no change in goal though as Hugo Lloris looks to continue in between the sticks, ahead of Joe Hart. He will be aiming to keep a clean sheet after conceding one goal in the first leg.
Harry Winks is tipped to start in the midfield department, as Mourinho looks to rest Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg ahead of the important Premier League clash against Burnley on the weekend. Similarly, Moussa Sissoko may also earn a start, with Tanguy Ndombele settling for a place on the bench, although it won’t be surprising to see the Frenchman being employed as a second-half substitute.
Unfortunately for Tottenham, Giovani Lo Celso is still out injured, and while Lucas Moura is a definite option in the number ten role, the 4-1 aggregate lead should give Mourinho the freedom to hand Dele Alli a rare starting opportunity.
Both Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min are likely to be rested for the upcoming game against Burnley, so it will be up to Carlos Vinicius to spearhead the Spurs attack this midweek.
Mourinho may also unleash Gareth Bale on the flanks, with the Welshman now finally starting to show his true quality. He was one of the best performers in the first-leg and is hoping to once again make an impact on Thursday. Steven Bergwijn should form the final piece of the jigsaw in the Spurs attack as they look to add further gloss to the ultimate scoreline.
