Tottenham Full XI and Expanded 12-Man Bench

Tottenham keep a relatively familiar shape and a lot of the same names and faces that topped Wolfsberger last week in Hungary. Expect to see something from some of these Spurs as they are looking to play their way into their next opportunity whether at N17 or elsewhere.

Maybe the most exciting part of Wednesday will be the 12-player bench that Juse Mourinho can select. When it came to the first leg, Mourinho had no shortage of youngsters to fill out the squad. While some players like Sergio Reguilon and Serge Aurier have in theory returned enough to make the bench, having more youth seems the better call.

Of course that average age is offset by the first back-up being Joe Hart, who again is holding the clipboard behind Hugo Lloris, although a number of fans could use seeing Hart make a couple mistakes again to remind us Hugo is not that bad. Last week Alfie Whiteman also got the call as the third keeper, but likely misses this week, unless Hart starts, then Whiteman still makes the squad.

Besides the back-up keepers we have some defenders with Eric Dier, Matt Doherty, and Sergio Reguilón all available. With Serge Aurier likely on the bench, Marcel Lavinier will not again get to sit the bench, instead Dane Scarlett and Jamie Bowden join superstar Heung-Min Son and Argentine Erik Lamela on the bench.
