Predicted Tottenham line-up to play Anderlecht: Son on bench and defensive changes

WH Lane

Here is how we predict Tottenham Hotspur and Anderlecht will line up this week:

To be played on Thursday 5th November 2015 at 20:05. Venue: White Hart Lane,

Odds: Tottenham 7/10, Draw 14/5, Anderlecht 15/4

Tottenham Hotspur’s players have little time to rest after their 3-1 victory against Aston Villa on Monday evening, with their attention quickly turning from the Premier League to the Europa League.

Tottenham are currently third in Group J after they lost 2-1 to Anderlecht in the first of a double-header against the Belgian club, and on Thursday Mauricio Pochettino’s men have the chance to get their revenge.

Tottenham have already defeated FK Qarabag and drawn with AS Monaco in this competition but another victory will do very nicely to ensure a smoother end to the group stage with two matches to play after this one.

Tottenham are without Federico Fazio, Nacer Chadli and Alex Pritchard while Danny Rose is a minor doubt with a knock sustained against Villa earlier this week.

Summer signing Heung-Min Son has been out with a foot injury but the South Korea international is expected to play some part in this match, most likely from the bench.
