Breaking News ! KF Shkendija vs Tottenham LIVE! Tottenham's arduous Europa League qualifying campaign takes them to North Macedonia today as they visit KF Shkendija. Jose Mourinho's side survived a scare against Lokomotiv Plovdiv last week, coming from behind to win late on as the minnows finished with nine men. Spurs were due to be playing two games in 48 hours but Tuesday night's EFL Cup clash against Leyton Orient was called off after several members of the O's squad tested positive for coronavirus. The tight schedule brought about by the delayed start to the season because of the pandemic means Thursday's tie will be played over a single leg rather than the usual two. GOAL!

ES COVERAGE 2020-09-24T18:11:15.326Z Dan Kilpatrick: "Given Tottenham's 'inhuman"'fixture congestion, Jose Mourinho will want nothing more than to establish an early so his players can conserve energy later in the game."To that end, Spurs have made the perfect start."

POLL 2020-09-24T17:55:17.000Z Standard Sport prediction: Shkendija 0-3 TottenhamTottenham struggled past inferior opposition in the previous round, but will surely have learnt from their sluggish approach to that game and looked much sharper in the Premier League 5-2 rout of Southampton on Sunday.They will be boosted by the fixture pile-up not being quite as severe as had been planned thanks to the cancellation of the Leyton Orient tie. Mourinho's men should record a comfortable win in North Macedonia ahead of their game against Newcastle on Sunday.

But that unknown quantity makes the North Macedonian outfit a danger in itself.  Photo: AFPNo doubt, Jose Mourinho and his staff would have familiarised themselves with the opposition and how they can expose his team's weaknesses.One of their strengths is veteran striker Besart Ibraimi, who has scored 16 goals across the Champions League and Europa League qualification stages for Shkendija over the last five seasons.They are also unbeaten in the North Macedonian first division and sit top of the league after six games, having finished third last season behind champions Vardar.Having come across Red Bull Salzburg and AC Milan in recent seasons, Shkendija will have experience of playing a team of Tottenham's quality and their performance against Plovdiv in the previous round certainly highlighted some frailites. An upset is unlikely, but not out of the question.

.With that in mind, Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, Giovani Lo Celso, Hugo Lloris and Matt Doherty all come out of the starting XI and will be on the bench.As expected, Serge Aurier will get a chance to impress at right-back while Joe Hart makes his competitive debut for Spurs.

It might be a dip in confidence, I don’t know the situation. But he is a fantastic player and a top pro as well.“I am sure everybody in the team will back me in saying he will get back to his best form — he will do.

Team news Jose Mourinho has laid down the gauntlet for Dele Alli by challenging the 24-year-old to perform, so it would only be fair if the 24-year-old returns to the XI, having been left out of the squad for the last two matches. Mourinho is not taking the Europa League qualifiers lightly, but the cancellation of Tuesday's Carabao Cup tie against Leyton Orient may prompt the Tottenham boss to rotate his side more than originally planned in North Macedonia. Joe Hart was in line for his Spurs debut at Brisbane Road, so may be given a chance ahead of Hugo Lloris, while Serge Aurier is also pushing for his first start of the season, even while his future remains uncertain. Sergio Reguilon is not part of the squad, so Ben Davies is likely to continue at left-back, leaving the Spaniard free to face Newcastle on Sunday.Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are both struggling to play 90 minutes at present, so the likelihood is that Mourinho will start the Frenchman on Thursday and save Lo Celso for the weekend. Harry Kane has to play, according to Mourinho at least, while he remains the club's only recognised centre-forward but the manager's other trusted forwards, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son, will surely be rested.
