Predicted Tottenham line-up to play FK Qarabag: Lamela and Pritchard to start

Here is how we predict Tottenham Hotspur will line up against FK Qarabag later this week:

Tottenham Hotspur got their first win of the season on Sunday when they defeated Sunderland 1-0, and Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be hoping to continue that form when they begin their Europa League campaign on Thursday.

Tottenham welcome FK Qarabag to White Hart Lane in their first Group J match with upcoming games against AS Monaco and Anderlecht later this season.

Pochettino is likely to shuffle his pack on Thursday without jeopardising his chances of victory and building up a head of steam for the matches to come.

As a result, expect to see the likes of Michel Vorm, Danny Rose, Kieran Tripper and Erik Lamela all start, with the Argentine having impressed when he came off the bench against Sunderland.

There will also be places on the bench for some of Tottenham’s youngsters, with some likely to get minutes in the second half if things are going their way.

Below is the side we predict Tottenham will start with for their match on Thursday evening:
