Tottenham vs Antwerp: Europa League preview

Jose Mourniho’s side have already qualified for the last-32 after Christmas, but currently sit second in Group J, two points behind the Belgian side. 

Spurs will be desperate to avoid a difficult draw early in the knockout phase, with some high-quality opposition dropping out of the Champions League. 

Mourinho’s men are riding high at the top of the Premier League and come in full of confidence after beating Arsenal 2-0 in Sunday’s north London derby.

Spurs have Tanguy Ndombele back in training after he missed the north London derby success, but Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg is expected to be rested, while Serge Aurier is out. 

Mourinho has used the competition to give some of his fringe players more playing time, meaning the likes of Carlos Vinicius, Gareth Bale and Dele Alli could be involved, while Joe Hart is likely to start in goal.
