Son Heung-Min (LW)
Heung-Min Son had an instant impact midweek, walking on to the pitch and then basically running straight at the goal to pick up the ball and a nice assist to Giovanni Lo Celso. The celebration between the South Korean and Argentine help underscore the growing comradery within the team. More importantly for Son touches like those he had Thursday lead one to believe Son’s form is coming back, which should be a scary thought for opponents everywhere.
Harry Kane (ST)
Harry Kane was the main storyline midweek in Europa League. Kane started and captained the squad in his 300th appearance for Spurs. Even more significant was his 200th goal for the club, which came early in the first half. The talisman likely was disappointed in a couple of his misses but will be happy with 200. The striker will be looking to make more history Sunday as his next Premier League goal will be number 150 in league.
Lucas Moura (RW)
We thought long and hard about Gareth Bale starting this final match before the break, which no doubt Jose Mourinho is doing too. Ultimately, we held back on Bale and think Mourinho will do the same, as he builds the Bale is still developing narrative for the Welshman’s international work. The fact is, if Bale is ready to start in the Premier League, it is tough to say he is not ready to go for his nation, making this a tough call for Mourinho, so we go with Moura, who scored and assisted – both in collaboration with Kane – midweek.
