MetiNews.Com - Tottenham take on Wolfsberger AC on Wednesday evening with a 4-1 lead from the first leg
Breaking News ! Jose Mourinho and Tottenham have the chance to put things right on Wednesday evening when the team return to European action. Falling to a fifth league defeat in their last six games, Spurs can restore some much-needed confidence by recording another victory over Austrian side Wolfsberger AC. Winning 4-1 in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie last week, it should be rather straightforward for Tottenham as they have a three-goal lead and also home advantage to look forward to. But who exactly will Mourinho plump for in his XI against Wolfsberger?

Alasdair Gold - Tottenham Hotspur reporter The overall decision Jose Mourinho has to make is whether to give players who need minutes their time on the pitch or allow key players to get some confidence and momentum. He's likely to take the former route but as Gareth Bale did last week, there's a chance for players to stake their claim to make an impact in the Premier League. There's no need to play the likes of Hugo Lloris, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Kane or Son Heung-min.

You would also hope that some of the young players such as Dane Scarlett, Dennis Cirkin and Marcel Lavinier might get some minutes if Spurs remain in full control of the tie. Gold's team: Hart; Doherty, Tanganga, Alderweireld, Davies; Sissoko, Winks; Lamela, Alli, Bergwijn: Vinicius. Rob Guest - Tottenham Hotspur reporter On paper it should be rather comfortable for Tottenham now having home advantage following their 4-1 win away last Thursday. That means Jose Mourinho can totally rest the likes of Harry Kane and Co ahead of Sunday's game at home to Burnley as that it is a match they desperately need to win.

First of all Joe Hart comes in between the sticks as there is no need to play Hugo Lloris as Spurs have one foot in the Round of 16, with Japhet Tanganga the only change to the back four Mourinho named for the away game last week as he replaces Eric Dier in the side. Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko carry on as the midfield pair in Europe, while Steven Bergwijn should be given the nod out wide in place of Lucas Moura. Dele Alli starts again and it may be wise to give Gareth Bale some more minutes before replacing him with Erik Lamela in the second half. Carlos Vinicius should also be given his opportunity from the off because it's his best opportunity of football with Premier League minutes few and far between. Guest's team: Hart; Doherty, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Davies; Sissoko, Winks; Bale, Alli, Bergwijn; Vinicius
