How we predict Spurs will line up vs Wolfsberger

But with one foot already in the next round, Mourinho can afford to rest Heung-min Son – who played 45 minutes in the first leg – paving the way for loanee Carlos Vinicius to lead the line.

The Spurs manager revealed on Tuesday that he is still having to manage Gareth Bale’s minutes, so there is a chance the Welshman will remain on the bench and be saved for the crucial home match against Burnley on Sunday after he changed the match against West Ham as a substitute.

Joe Hart could come in between the sticks after club captain Hugo Lloris played the first leg, while Japhet Tanganga may get a rare opportunity at centre-half alongside Toby Alderweireld, who Mourinho has already confirmed will start.

Steven Bergwijn is pushing for minutes, having slipped behind Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela in the pecking order for League games.

Giovani Lo Celso is back in training but remains unavailable, along with the injured Serge Aurier and ineligible Joe Rodon.

A number of youngsters including Dane Scarlett and Jamie Bowden can expect to be on the bench.

Spurs predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Hart; Doherty, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Davies; Winks, Sissoko; Lucas, Dele, Bergwijn; Vinicius.
