Tottenham will be hoping to put the disappointment of their draw with West Ham behind them when they play against Austrian side LASK Linz in the Europa League on Thursday.
Prior to their shock collapse against the Hammers, which saw three goals conceded in the final eight minutes, Tottenham had been in sensational form.
The week before the international break saw Spurs knock Chelsea out of the EFL Cup, beat Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League, and thrash Manchester United 6-1 in the Premier League.
LASK have also been on a good run, winning four out of their six games, including two in the Europa League. However, they were beaten easily by Rapid Vienna 3-0 in their last league outing.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.
When is the match?
The game kicks off at 8pm on Thursday, 22 October.
Where can I watch it?
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2. Subscribers can also stream the match via the BT Sport website or app.
What is the team news?
Spurs are likely to line-up with Hugo Lloris in goal, while at full-back, it is likely to be Matt Doherty and Ben Davies replacing Serge Aurier and Reguilon. The centre-backs will probably not see any changes as Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld were impressive against West Ham and will want to continue that form.
Dele Alli will be hoping to be included in midfield having started in all of the Europa League qualifiers so far. Gareth Bale could expect to start but do not be surprised if Jose Mourinho names a much-changed side.
Erik Lamela is also expected to feature in some capacity, while there’s a decision to make up front as Harry Kane has been in exceptional form, but Carlos Vinicius is waiting for his full debut.
LASK will be without midfielder Dominik Reiter, who has a torn cruciate ligament. Outside of that, the Austrian side will be able to call upon a full-strength squad which they will need against Tottenham who are by far the superior team.
Tottenham: Lloris, Doherty, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Hojbjerg, Bale, Alli, Lamela, Kane.
LASK: Lawal, Ramsebner, Filipovic, Weisinger, Ranftl, Holland, Michori, Renner, Gruber, Balic, Raguz.
