Tottenham Hotspur team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Lokomotiv Plovdiv

Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Tottenham Hotspur ahead of their Europa League second qualifying round clash with Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

Tottenham Hotspur get their 2020-21 Europa League campaign underway with a trip to Bulgaria on Thursday night as they face Lokomotiv Plovdiv in the second qualifying round.

The early start to European duties is a consequence of only finishing sixth in the Premier League last season, and already Jose Mourinho finds himself demanding a response from his side.

Spurs were uninspiring and toothless en route to a 1-0 home defeat to Everton on the opening weekend of the new domestic campaign on Sunday but must pick themselves up quickly with the matches coming thick and fast from hereon in.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of their latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's trip to Bulgaria.
