Dele Alli starts for Tottenham as Mourinho stacks bench for Wolfsberger tie

Jose rings the changes

With Tottenham leading 4-1 from the first leg, Jose Mourinho has made multiple changes to his starting 11 for tonight’s return leg at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

As no team in Europa League history has overturned a three goal deficit from the first leg before the Spurs manager has rested some of his biggest stars.

Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Tanguy Ndombele and Gareth Bale all take a seat on the bench whilst goal keeper Joe Hart, Toby Alderweireld, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Carlos Vinicus and Steven Bergwijn all are recalled to the starting line up.

Deli Alli also makes a rare start under Jose Mourinho and a chance to impress as he continues to try and win a place back in the first team.

Gareth Bale had started all seven of Spurs Europa League ties before tonight, but is on the bench tonight which could be a sign that he may well see more action from the start in their upcoming Premier League games.

Speaking pre match on BT Sport pundits Jermain Jenas and Peter Crouch suggested that Bale may be misunderstood.

Only time will tell if Bale is set to become the player Spurs hoped to get when he joined from Real Madrid, but with one foot in the next round, we might not get to see Bale’s resurgence continue tonight.
