[Teams] Tottenham vs Antwerp: lineups confirmed for the shock of the Europa League | Football talk


Tottenham host Royal Antwerp in north London tonight for their final Europa League group stage game.

Jose Mourinho has made several changes to his starting XI with a number of players rested ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday. Hugo Lloris is given the night with Joe Hart recalled between the sticks while Japhet Tanganga and Davinson Sanchez come to replace Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier in the middle of the defense.

Ben Davies is also starting in what could be a return of three for Tottenham as Sergio Reguilon also makes another start while Matt Doherty replaces Sere Aurier on the right. Harry Winks gets a recall in midfield with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg given a rest and Giovani Lo Celso starts with Moussa Sissoko named among Spurs substitutes.

Obviously Harry Kane and Hueng-min Son are having a break, so Carlos Vinicius and Lucas Moura are called up in the Tottenham attack while Gareth Bale has another chance to impress by replacing Steven Bergwijn.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Hart, Doherty, Sanchez, Tanganga, Davies, Reguilon, Winks, Lo Celso, Lucas, Bale, Vinicius.

Subs: Whiteman, Dier, Alderweireld, Sissoko, White, Clarke, Ndombele, Dele, Son, Bergwijn, Kane, Scarlett


Beiranvand, Buta, Seck, Gelin, Batubinsika, Lukaku, Benson, Haroun, Hongla, Refaelov, Benavente

Subs: Chevaughn, Butez, De Laet, Verstraete, Juklerod, Boya, Miyoshi, Ampomah, Mbokani
