Tottenham are badly in need of a win as they take on NS Mura of Slovenia in the Europa Conference League tonight.
Spurs made a bright start to life under Nuno Espirito Santo with three straight 1-0 wins, yet their form has nosedived of late with back-to-back 3-0 losses against Crystal Palace and Chelsea followed by a wretched 3-1 north London derby defeat at Arsenal that featured a truly dismal first-half display.
While they did squeeze past Wolves on penalties in the Carabao Cup (after blowing a two-goal lead), pressure is already building on their manager and his unpopular style of football.
A win against Mura in Europe’s new tertiary club competition will hardly do much to dispel the doubters, though anything less would surely be an absolute disaster.
Spurs needed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's late goal to rescue a point at Rennes in their opener in this tournament, while Mura lost at home to Vitesse.
NS Mura lost their first game 2-0 against Dutch side Vitesse.

Tottenham vs Mura prediction
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.
