Tottenham Hotspur will look to make it two wins in a row when they face Sporting Lisbon in Portugal this evening.
Antonio Conte has made one change to the team that defeated Marseille in their first group stage match last week. Ben Davies has been recalled and will line up on the left side of the back three, replacing Clement Lenglet. Eric Dier and Cristian Romero complete the back three, leaving Davinson Sanchez on the bench.
Hugo Lloris returns to goal for Spurs. Emerson Royal remains at Tottenham’s right wing back position, while Ivan Perisic starts at the left. Ryan Sessegnon, Matt Doherty, and Djed Spence are all named on the bench.
Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg start in the midfield with Yves Bissouma on the bench. Richarlison gets rewarded for his performance last time out as he starts alongside Harry Kane and Son. Conte’s attacking options from the bench include Dejan Kulusevski and Bryan Gil.
