Conte will hope to keep his unbeaten start to life with us going when we travel to NS Mura for our Europa Conference League showdown in Group G.

We sit second in the section with seven points to our name, while the Slovenian hosts are yet to pick up a point in the competition.

Pitting their wits against the likes of us, Rennes and Vitesse was always expected to end one way for Slovenian minnows Mura, whose time in Europe's tertiary competition will come to a bitter end before the end of the calendar year.

They are rock bottom of Group G having lost their opening four games, although they did give leaders Rennes a good run for their money last time out before ultimately succumbing to a Loic Bade header with 76 minutes played.

Mura are one of three sides in the tournament - along with Alashkert and Lincoln Red Imps - sitting on zero points after four games, while they have also shipped 10 goals and chalked up just two at the correct end of the pitch.

With a trip to Vitesse to come on the final matchday, Mura are at a real risk of ending Group G without a single point to their name, and a 1-1 draw in the league with NK Domzale at the weekend stretched their winless run across all tournaments to six games.

Simundza's men have claimed just one win from their last 11 in all tournaments as they continue to falter in their title defence, and we will only be intent on prolonging the hosts' misery with another goal-laden performance.

Conte made his intentions clear straight away with a first-choice XI for his maiden game in charge, and the move initially appeared to pay off for the Premier League and Serie A winner, with his side racing into a 3-0 lead against Vitesse before the half-hour mark.

However, the Dutch surprise package made a game of it by responding with two goals before the half-time whistle blew, and with no fewer than three red cards dished out in the second period, we ultimately held on.

You will not see many coaches celebrate a 2-1 win over an under-performing Leeds United with the unrivalled passion that Conte displayed on Sunday, as Hojbjerg and Regilon responded to Dan James's opener in at our stadium.

Conte has made a satisfactory start to life here at Spurs with two wins and a draw from his opening three games in charge, but we sit three points behind Rennes in Group G before they welcome Les Rouge et Noir to the capital next month.

We barely needed to get out of second gear to thrash Mura 5-1 during our meeting back in September, with Kane bagging a hat-trick on the day amid his top-flight struggles.

Team News

Mura have no concerns on the disciplinary front for this game, but attacker Ziga Skoflek is expected to miss out through injury once more.

Given how valiantly they performed in the 1-0 defeat to Rennes, it would not be surprising to see Simundza stick with that defensive formula, with captain Ziga Kous starting on the right of a back five.

Nardin Mulahusejnovic started up top in that game, but Amadej Marosa will hope to lead the line this week after netting against Domzale at the weekend.

As for us, Romero will serve a suspension following his sending off against Vitesse - although he is injured anyway – while Lo Celso is still uncertain.

A refreshed Skipp is back from suspension and ought to return to midfield, though, with Conte affirming that he would rotate his resources for Thursday's contest.

Ndombele, Doherty, Sessgnon and Bergwijn are among the candidates to come into the first XI, but it is difficult to see Dele Alli forcing his way into contention.


This will be our second time meeting each other, where we first played them on 30th September and beating them 5-1.
