How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Royal Antwerp

Sports Mole looks at how Tottenham Hotspur could line up for Thursday's Europa League fixture against Royal Antwerp.

Tottenham Hotspur continue their Europa League campaign on Thursday evening with a meeting against Royal Antwerp in Belgium.

Spurs have endured a hectic start to the 2020-21 season, requiring three qualifying fixtures to reach the group stages of this competition.

However, Jose Mourinho's team have put together a 10-match unbeaten streak in all competition, the latest result coming on Monday as they edged past Burnley at Turf Moor.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how Spurs could line up for their next fixture at the Bosuilstadion.

Of the players who started the Premier League encounter against the Clarets, only Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko are likely to keep their spots for this contest.

With Joe Rodon ineligible for this competition, Davies could switch to the centre, allowing Sergio Reguilon to return at left-back.

Serge Aurier and Steven Bergwijn both missed the Burnley game due to sustaining minor knocks, and one or both of the duo could return on the right-hand side.

Giovani Lo Celso is expected to get the nod in a creative midfield role, resulting in Dele Alli only being named among the replacements.

Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius will return to the starting lineup, although their exact positions will depend on whether Mourinho opts for a back three or four.

The likes of Son Heung-min and Harry Kane will be selected on the substitutes' bench at best, while Toby Alderweireld could be rested after sustaining a cut to his head against Burnley.
