Jose Mourinho and Tottenham come up against one of the in-form European sides tonight in the Champions League as they welcome RB Leipzig to North London.
The German side are flying high in the Bundesliga, currently sitting in second and pushing Bayern Munich all the way for the honour of lifting the title.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are fifth in the Premier League and nowhere near Liverpool in the race for the eventual trophy.
Spurs are also without any recognisable striker or consistent goal scorer for the match as both Harry Kane and Heung Min Son are recovering from respective injuries and surgeries.
Dele Alli and Lucas Moura are Tottenham’s next highest scorers, but neither have hit double figures for the season (BBC).
This is Mourinho’s first starting XI since Son fractured his arm against Aston Villa on Sunday and some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the line-up.
GOOD LINEUP THOUGH
