PHOTO: Tottenham duo on their way to Europa League match

Tottenham Hotspur are on their way to play Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.

Tottenham Hotspur duo Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen have been photographed on their way to Serbia for their Europa League match with Partizan Belgrade.

The Danish international play-maker posted the image on his official Instagram page the day before Spurs' opening European fixture.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side start their Group C campaign with a match on Thursday evening, before they go on to face Besiktas and Asteras Tripolis.

Tottenham have had a mixed start to their Premier League campaign, winning their opening two matches without conceding a goal before slipping to defeat against Liverpool and letting in a late equaliser against Sunderland last weekend.

But they will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Thursday, knowing that an away day in Belgrade is anything but easy.

Eriksen could prove to be the key man on Thursday, and it will be interesting to see if he can move up another level this season, both domestically and in Europe.

If he can, and his teammates follow suit, there is no reason why Tottenham cannot be challenging for a trophy in the business-end of the campaign.
