Nuno Espirito Santo has picked his Tottenham Hotspur starting eleven for the first time in a European match since taking over as the club’s new head coach.
Tottenham face Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League play off round first leg this evening at the 9,000 capacity Estadio Capital do Móvel.
Nuno has made wholesale changes to his starting eleven from the team which beat Manchester City in the Premier League opener on Sunday.

There are also starts for recent signings Pierluigi Gollini, Bryan Gil and Cristian Romero, as well as Ryan Sessegnon, Ben Davies and Harry Winks.
Here is the side which takes to the field in Portugal this evening:
Tottenham Hotspur: Gollini, Doherty, Carter-Vickers, Romero, Davies, Sessegnon, Winks, Lo Celso, John, Bryan, Scarlett
Subs: Austin, Lyons-Foster, Paskotsi, Cesar, Matthew Craig, Michael Craig, White, Clarke, Mundle, Bennett
