Jose Mourinho has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field against Middlesbrough this afternoon.
Spurs begin their FA Cup campaign at The Riverside Stadium against the side coached by Jonathan Woodgate and Robbie Keane.
Despite Boro’s lowly position of 16th in the Championship, they are currently in a good run of form having only lost one of their last six league matches.
Tottenham, on the other hand, are struggling with form in recent weeks with just two victories in their last six Premier League outings.
The FA Cup represents Tottenham’s best chance of ending their eleven year wait for a competitive trophy having already been embarrassed by lower league opposition in the Carabao Cup.
Spurs are without the services of Harry Kane (hamstring), Hugo Lloris (elbow), Danny Rose (calf), Tanguy Ndombele (hip) and Ben Davies (ankle).
This is who features for Tottenham this afternoon.
#THFC: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen (C), Sessegnon, Winks, Eriksen, Lucas, Dele, Son.
