GOOD EVENING

Welcome to our live blog of Tottenham v Royal Antwerp

Jose Mourinho’s men have already qualified for the last 32 but need to beat Antwerp to win the group.

The Belgian club just need to avoid defeat in north London to clinch top spot; they also won the reverse fixture 1-0.

Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele missed Sunday’s win over Arsenal with a minor issue and Erik Lamela has not featured for five weeks, but they are Tottenham’s only two injury concerns going into tonight’s game.

Centre-back Joe Rodon who signed from Swansea in the last transfer window will play no part as he was not named in Mourinho’s Europa League squad.

The Spurs boss has cultivated something of a Europa League XI and he is likely to stick with this formula; meaning the likes of Joe Hart, Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura, Carlos Vincius and Dele Alli are all set to start.

Antwerp are likely to field their strongest possible side; which is set to be spearheaded by Lior Rafaelov who has three goals in five group stage games.

However, they will be without Matheus and Sander Coopman who are both out with injury and have not travelled to London.
