Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be expected to make a number of changes against NS Mura and Express Sport takes a look at the starting line-up he may go with.
Hugo Lloris remains Tottenham’s No 1 choice as the club captain, but Pierluigi Gollini looks set to retain his place in the Europa Conference League.
The 26-year-old joined Tottenham in the summer and is being tipped as the man to replace Lloris in the future.
Lloris is out of contract next summer with the Frenchman admitting recently that no new offer has been made.

Defenders: Emerson, Sanchez, Romero, Davies
Having lost three consecutive Premier League matches with nine goals conceded, Tottenham are in dire need of building up some form.
The Europa Conference League can be the perfect place for Tottenham to start and Nuno may want to choose a solid back four to help stop the rut.
Sergio Reguilon may well be rested while Cristian Romero could also come in at centre-back to replace Eric Dier.
Emerson Royal is pushing for a regular spot at right-back and will want to build up some more minutes.
Midfielders: Hojbjerg, Lo Celso, Skipp
There’s been a lack of creativity from Tottenham’s midfielders of late with Dele Alli struggling to find some form.
He’s started every Premier League game so far this season for Tottenham, but he was taken off at half-time against Arsenal at the weekend.
Giovani Lo Celso may well come in and take his place while Oliver Skipp may also be chosen over Tanguy Ndombele.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg remains the only solid option in Tottenham’s midfield who looks likely to retain his spot on a regular basis.
Forwards: Son, Kane, Gil
Harry Kane has endured a difficult start to the campaign for his standards as he’s yet to get off the mark in the Premier League.
The fixture against NS Mura may be just what Kane needs to find some goalscoring momentum and he’ll want his partner in crime in Son Heung-min to feature alongside him.
Summer signing Bryan Gil has slowly been integrated into matches so far with his only starts coming in Europe.
And he could well replace Lucas Moura with Nuno keen to see more of Gil in action.
