Tottenham Hotspur take on Lokomotiv Plovdiv in their first Europa League qualifier this week, facing a trip to Bulgaria on Thursday evening.

The Lilywhites come into the tie in desperate need of a win to not only kickstart their season but also to have any hope of reaching the group stages of the competition.

The match is set to be played across one leg, meaning 120 minutes and penalties if needed, although Mourinho will be hoping to have things tied up before then.

Although it is a hard XI to predict, we believe that Mourinho will ring the changes, naming Joe Hart between the sticks instead of Lloris or Gazzaniga.

Ryan Sessegnon and Serge Aurier are named in the full-back positions, with Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth lining up in the centre of defence.

Tanguy Ndombele starts in the holding midfield role alongside his friend Moussa Sissoko, with Dele Alli used in a more advanced number ten role.

Lucas Moura, who is often heavily used across all competitions, is named on the left-wing, with Erik Lamela cutting inside from the right. Steven Bergwijn is used as a makeshift striker as Spurs have yet to sign a new forward.
