How we expect Tottenham to line up vs Antwerp

W

ith safe passage to the knockout stages of the Europa League already secured, Jose Mourinho and his Tottenham side will be playing to top the group against Royal Antwerp on Thursday.

The Belgian side visit north London sitting two points clear of Spurs ahead of the final game in Group J, and while Mourinho is set to shuffle the pack once more, top spot traditionally leads to a kinder draw in the first round of the knockout stage.

Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg is set to be rested after being one of Mourinho’s mainstays in recent weeks, while Serge Aurier, who picked up a problem ahead of the north London derby and played through the pain, is not available.

One boost for Spurs, should they need it, is the return of Tanguy Ndombele, who sat out the derby win over Arsenal after a late fitness test, is back in training and ready to go should he be required.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Hart; Doherty, Sanchez, Tanganga, Davies; Sissoko, Winks, Lo Celso; Bale, Lucas, Vinicius
