Tottenham Hotspur are set to face Shkendija at the Ecolog Arena on Thursday hoping to pick up a win in their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round match. Spurs got back to winning ways in their last outing when they came from behind to beat Southampton by a 5-2 scoreline in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho is likely to stick with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name a strong team for this contest versus Ernest Gjoka’s men.
Here is Spurs could line up against Shkendija.
Hugo Lloris could be in between the sticks for Spurs despite shipping in two goals versus the Saints on Sunday. Toby Alderweireld will partner Davinson Sanchez at the heart of Mourinho’s defence with Serge Aurier playing at right-back and newcomer Sergio Reguilon- at left-back.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Moussa Sissoko will anchor the Tottenham midfield. Steven Bergwijn is expected to stretch the pitch down the left flank while Erik Lamela to produce a productive display on the right. Lo Celso might get the nod to operate in the number ten position.
Dele Alli and Heung-min Son will be available for selection on the bench as they await their chance to come on and influence the game in the second half if needed.
In the attack there is place for Spurs talisman Harry Kane, who will once again get the opportunity to lead the line for the North London side down the middle.
