Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Vitesse at the GelreDome on Thursday night as they look to pick up maximum points on the road in the UEFA Conference League. Spurs managed to secure an impressive 3-2 victory over Newcastle United last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this midweek European clash.

Nuno Espirito Santo will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a lot of changes to his first team for this game. Dele Alli, Joe Rodon and Harry Winks could all play from the start so that the Tottenham head coach can keep his squad fresh for the London derby against West Ham United later this weekend.

Defence

Pierluigi Gollini will feature in between the sticks for Spurs after he conceded a goal against Mura in his last start in the UEFA Conference League. Joe Rodon and Cristian Romero will fill in as the centre-halves as they try to keep the Vitesse attackers at bay throughout the 90 minutes.

Matt Doherty is a major doubt for this game after he picked up a knock during the international break. If the talented defender can pass a late fitness, he will start at right-back while Sergio Reguilon assumes the duties of the left-back.

Midfield

Harry Winks will play alongside Oliver Skipp at the heart of the Tottenham midfield as they focus on dominating possession at the centre of the park and find some holes in the Vitesse defence with their passing. The gifted trio of Bryan Gil, Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso will operate just ahead of them as part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s attack.

Both Alli and Lo Celso got their names on the scoresheet against Mura, so they will be eager to keep their good form going in the UEFA Europa Conference League later this week.

Attack

Dane Scarlett could get another chance to shine as Spurs’ primary centre-forward. The English youngster will be eager to impress his manager when he laces up to face off against the Vitesse defenders this Thursday evening.

Both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son will be rested on the bench and might only come on if Tottenham are in need of a goal late in the game.
