NS Mura vs Tottenham team news
Conte is differing from Nuno Espirito Santo by taking a full squad to Slovenia, though he has already said that he will rotate with a trip to Burnley to come on Sunday and the Italian keen to get a proper look at some of his squad players.
Ryan Sessegnon is in line to start as he bids to kickstart his Tottenham career after injury, while Pierluigi Gollini should replace captain Hugo Lloris in goal and Oliver Skipp could return.
Young forward Dane Scarlett is also sidelined with an ankle issue, while Giovani Lo Celso similarly won’t play.
NS Mura vs Tottenham prediction
Mura were hit for five in north London back in September courtesy of Harry Kane’s 30-minute hat-trick off the bench and further goals from Dele and Lo Celso – and that was the horribly mundane Spurs of the Nuno era.
Tottenham look to be building some early momentum under the enigmatic Conte after a rousing comeback win over Leeds and Mura – fifth in their own domestic league and 11 points off the title pace – are likely to be in for another long night here, even against a weakened Spurs XI.
