And ahead of the game, here is the latest Spurs injury updates and team news.
Serge Aurier missed the weekend’s defeat to Manchester City with a foot injury and Jose Mourinho will be hoping to have him back available for selection on Thursday evening.
If he is available, it is highly likely that he will win back the right-back berth.
Sergio Reguilon has missed the Lilywhites’ last six matches with a muscle injury. However, former Real Madrid man seems to be closing in on a return to action, with Mourinho issuing a positive update on the defender’s condition.
“I would say Reguilon has a chance to play Europa League next week,” Mourinho told the club’s website.
Giovani Lo Celso has not featured since the loss at home to Leicester City on December 20 and Spurs boss has confirmed that the 24-year-old midfielder remains sidelined.
Speaking on Friday, Mourinho said: “No, not even close.”
Son Heung-Min sustained an injury late in the game against City. but Mourinho is hoping the South Korean forward will be fit to play.
“Well he has a wound in his ankle. A wound means a stud. A stud in the ankle means a card,” Mourinho said.
“I don’t think a red, so the VAR can only interfere for a red. I don’t think a red, but if that’s not a yellow and the referee was five metres distance but it is a wound in the ankle. Hopefully nothing big.”
