Jose Mourinho would be wise to rest players for the trip to Austria ahead of a potentially league season defining trip to the London Stadium on Sunday. Defeat to West Ham would all but end Spurs’ chances of reaching the top four.

The likes of Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Tanguy Ndombele will likely travel with the squad but will only be introduced if the Lilywhites are not in cruise control by the hour mark.

Davinson Sanchez would be fortunate to keep his place in the team after an abysmal performance against Manchester City, paving the way for a return of 23-year-old Joe Rodon at the back.

Both first-choice full-backs Serge Aurier and Sergio Reguilon remain on the sidelines, so the less adventurous pairing of Japhet Tanganga and Ben Davies should be on show, as new signing Matt Doherty has failed to impress since joining.

Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko are clearly Mournho’s 3rd and 4th choice central midfielders at this point.

A lot has been made of Mourinho’s displeasure at Gareth Bale and Dele Alli, but the Portuguese manager has turned to both on Europa League nights as a chance to prove their worth.

Carlos Vinicius was brought in for these games precisely, the option to rest star man Harry Kane from time to time.
