Mourinho mixes it up
Jose Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference before their Europa League Round of 16 with Dinamo Zagreb that he would tie that he would make changes and he has been true to his word.
He has made seven changes from the side who beat Crystal Palace 4-1 on Sunday, but he has still put out a strong side, with Harry Kane and Heung Min Son both starting.
Speaking before the game he said,
“Am I going to repeat the same team that played against Crystal Palace? No, I’m going to make a few changes.”
“But the team is working very well, everybody is training hard, everybody is pushing to play, so for me it doesn’t matter who is playing our team is going to be strong.”
Gareth Bale, who has been in sparkling form takes his place back on the bench, after starting the last three Premier League games.
Dele Alli once again starts in Europe and is joined by Matt Doherty, Eric Dier, Serge Aurier, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele and Erik Lamela.
Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies, Sergio Regulion, Harry Winks, Pierre- Emile Hojbjerg, Bale and Lucas Moura all join Bale on the bench.

Spurs will be looking to keep up their good form ahead of the North London Derby this weekend.
Tonight’s game represents another chance for Dele Alli to cement a place in the Spurs starting eleven.
He has played six times in the competition scoring twice and assisting three times.
Spurs will be certain they can go deep into the competition and if they win it they will of course guarantee themselves a place in the Champions League.
