NS Mura vs Tottenham team news
Conte differs from Nuno Espirito Santo in taking a full squad to Slovenia, although he has already announced he will rotate with a trip to Burnley on Sunday and the Italian wanted to get a good look at some of his players.
Ryan Sessegnon is in the line to start as he offers to relaunch his Tottenham career after injury, while Pierluigi Gollini is expected to replace captain Hugo Lloris in goal and Oliver Skipp could return.
Young forward Dane Scarlett is also sidelined with an ankle problem, while Giovani Lo Celso won’t be playing either.
Prediction NS Mura vs Tottenham
Mura was hit five times in north London in September thanks to Harry Kane’s 30-minute treble from the bench and other goals from Dele and Lo Celso – and that was the horribly mundane Spurs of the Nuno era .
Tottenham appear to be building early momentum under the enigmatic Conte after a thrilling comeback victory over Leeds and Mura – fifth in their own domestic league and 11 points behind the title pace – are likely to be in another long night here , even against a weakened Spurs XI.
