Tottenham vs NS Mura - LIVE!

Tottenham continue their Europa Conference League group stage campaign with a home clash with NS Mura tonight.

Nuno Espirito Santo is increasingly under pressure despite having only taken charge in the summer, with Sunday’s 3-1 north London derby defeat to Arsenal a third straight reverse in the league.

Victory over the Slovenian minnows this evening will do little to improve the mood but anything shy of a convincing win would certainly be of no help ahead of the Premier League meeting with Aston Villa on Sunday.

In the context of this competition, Spurs could do with the three points having drawn 2-2 away to Ligue 1 side Rennes in their opening group stage fixture earlier this month.

Mura are, on paper, the weakest side in the group and sit bottom of the group after losing their opener to Dutch outfit Vitesse.

FT: Tottenham 5-1 NS Mura

21:50 , Malik Ouzia

Pretty comfortable in the end and Harry Kane back in the goals is a huge plus for Nuno’s men.

GOAL! Tottenham 5-1 Mura | Harry Kane 87’

21:44 , Malik Ouzia

That’s the hat-trick!

Another sweet Kane finish but again it owes plenty to the pass - a lovely ball in behind from Lo Celso.

21:41 , Malik Ouzia

84 mins: A 4-1 scoreline and Spurs stroking the ball about as we enter the final exchanges. Never in doubt, was it?

GOAL! Tottenham 4-1 Mura | Harry Kane 76'

21:33 , Malik Ouzia

That’s a superb goal!

Lo Celso’s terrific first-time pass is the key moment in a wonderful move as he sends Son racing away and the Korean squares to leave Kane a simple finish for his second.

21:30 , Malik Ouzia

73 mins: Despite that goal, Hojbjerg was indeed sent into the fray, with Skipp the man to make way. Nuno hinted that he wished he’d started the Englishman against Arsenal on Sunday - wonder whether he’ll get a chance against Villa this weekend.

Tottenham’s triple-substitution smacked of desperation but it has done the trick, with Lucas feeding Kane to ensure Spurs remain on course for a much-needed victory. The introduction of all Spurs’ big guns speaks to Nuno’s fragile confidence, though.

GOAL! Tottenham 3-1 Mura | Harry Kane 68'

21:24 , Malik Ouzia

There he is!

It’s a great ball in behind from Lucas and an even better finish from Kane, who stretches to poke high past the ‘keeper.

21:24 , Malik Ouzia

67 mins: Looks like Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is also going to be on shortly. This is not the was Nuno envisaged this evening panning out I’m sure.

21:20 , Malik Ouzia

63 mins: Those changes have, unsurprisingly, brought a shift up through the gears for the home side, with Kane and Son charging forward twice in a couple of minutes.

21:16 , Malik Ouzia

59 mins: Here come the cavalry then. Nuno must be furious because Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son are coming on.

Dele, Scarlett and Gil are the trio dragged.

21:13 , Malik Ouzia

Suddenly it’s game on as Mura pull one back with a wonderful strike from Kous! Naturally Spurs fans will be frustrated that their side have conceded but there wasn’t an awful lot anyone could have done about that. Super goal.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-1 Mura | Žiga Kous 53'

21:09 , Malik Ouzia

What a goal!

A Mura corner is only cleared to the edge of the box and Kous catches it beautifully on the volley to give Gollini no chance. They couldn’t, could they?

21:07 , Malik Ouzia

50 mins: Spurs got off to a flyer at the beginning of the first half but they’ve been sluggish out of the blocks here and Mura have actually enjoyed a bit of territory, albeit without threatening much.

KICK-OFF!

21:02 , Malik Ouzia

We are back underway...

Dan Kilpatrick is at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

20:56 , Malik Ouzia

Spurs comfortable after two goals in the first eight minutes against the lowest-ranked side in this competition. Dele and Gil bright but tricky to draw meaningful conclusions, in all honesty.

HT: Tottenham 2-0 Mura

20:47 , Malik Ouzia

All very easy for Spurs, though having been two-down inside ten minutes, you suspect Mura probably would’ve taken this half-time score.

20:44 , Malik Ouzia

43 mins: A bit of frustration for Scarlett, who makes a great run into the box only for Gil to feint inside rather than deliver the cross and the chance is gone.

20:38 , Malik Ouzia

38 mins: Another slight opening for Dele as Doherty stands a cross up to the far post but there’s no power for the midfielder to work with and his header from a tight angle is comfortably held.

20:33 , Malik Ouzia

All praise should be caveated against the quality of the opposition but Dele Alli looks much happier back in an advanced No.10 role tonight in a 4-2-3-1. He has just tested the goalkeeper again and looks Spurs’ most likely source of a third goal.

20:32 , Malik Ouzia

31 mins: Sergio Reguilon doesn’t get many - in fact, he’s never scored for Spurs - but he fancies one here, knowing his defensive duties are likely to be minimal at best. He strides forward and lets fly but it’s always too high.

20:29 , Malik Ouzia

28 mins: Gil was one of the few to leave the Emirates with any credit on Sunday and he’s buzzing around again here, trying to force a gap in determined backline that haven’t lost heart at conceding those two early goals.

20:24 , Malik Ouzia

23 mins: A rare chance for Mura to get some bodies forward as they win a free-kick wide on the right but Horvat’s delivery is too close to Gollini and the ‘keeper comes to claim pretty comfortably.

20:19 , Malik Ouzia

19 mins: Tottenham have had 80 percent of the ball so far and, to be honest, it feels like more. Very much a training exercise.

20:16 , Malik Ouzia

Nuno could not have asked for a better start, with his side cruising already. Obviously a big win counts for relatively little given the quality of the opposition but you can only beat what’s in front of you and Spurs have started professionally.

20:13 , Malik Ouzia

12 mins: Aye, aye!

A big chance to get one back for the visitors as they get in down the left and Nardin Mulahusejnović gets a diving header in in the box but guides it just wide of the far post.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Mura | Giovani Lo Celso 8'

20:08 , Malik Ouzia

Could be absolutely anything, this.

A terrific finish from Lo Celso, whipped high into the far top corner, but you really do fear for the Slovenians now.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Mura | Dele Alli (p) 4'

20:04 , Malik Ouzia

Didn’t take long!

Dele Alli won the spot-kick and he steps up himself to fire low into the corner to give the ‘keeper no chance.

20:03 , Malik Ouzia

3 mins: Penalty to Tottenham!

A fortuitous deflection sends Dele Alli in and he gets to the ball before Obradovic, who catches him and the referee points to the spot.

KICK-OFF!

20:00 , Malik Ouzia

We are up and running...

19:58 , Malik Ouzia

The teams are out in north London. Almost showtime...

Twenty minutes to go...

19:39 , Malik Ouzia

If you’ve got a bit of time to kill just before kick-off, why not have a butcher’s at this exclusive interview with Toby Alderweireld.

The former Tottenham defender spoke to Dan Kilpatrick about his time at the club, Mauricio Pochettino’s departure and loads more.

Our man Dan Kilpatrick is in position...

19:24 , Malik Ouzia

Nine changes for Nuno

19:13 , Malik Ouzia

So, Tottenham make nine changes to the side that started the north London derby defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, with Dele Alli - who captains the side, but was very poor at the Emirates - and Sergio Reguilon the only survivors.

Up front, there’s an opportunity for teenager Dane Scarlett to lead the line, with Harry Kane rested but still in the match day squad, as is Heung-min Son.

18:45 , Malik Ouzia

We should have all the confirmed team news in the next 15 minutes or so...

Standard Sport prediction

18:35 , Malik Ouzia

Tottenham will make several changes for this game against vastly inferior opposition, though judging by their recent Premier League performances, that’s no bad thing.

It’s a bit of a no-win situation for Nuno in many ways. Spurs will get no credit for beating a team that few of their fans will have even heard of before this season, while if they don’t triumph then the criticism will be severe.

They should have enough to produce an emphatic win, though it’s in the top-flight where they must get back on track. And fast.

Tottenham 3-0 Mura

Here’s how we think Tottenham could lineup...

18:24 , Malik Ouzia

Spurs (probable 4-3-3) XI: Gollini; Doherty, Rodon, Romero, Davies; Winks, Skipp, Lo Celso; Lucas, Gil, Scarlett.

18:12 , Malik Ouzia

Spurs remain without Steven Bergwijn (ankle) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) for the visit of Mura.

“Nothing has changed,” Nuno told Spurs TV on Wednesday.

“Sess and Stevie will not join the group. The rest of the squad is available. We will also bring in some Under-23s to help us, and we go for the game.”

The hosts will make changes ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa, with the likes of fringe players Matt Doherty, Joe Rodon, Ben Davies and Harry Winks all hoping for minutes.

Young Dane Scarlett could deputise for Harry Kane up front, while Pierluigi Gollini looks to be Spurs’ no1 goalkeeper in this competition.

“We have to make decisions,” Nuno said. “Without telling you too much there are some changes because they are required. And regarding Thursday and Sunday it’s the best way. I will not go further than that, I’m sorry.”
