With a short break in the fixture list for Tottenham Hotspur, there was at least a chance for some rest and relaxation for the players after the expected defeat to Manchester City last weekend but this midweek we face a different challenge as it’s back to Europa League action as we travel to Budapest to face Austria Bundesliga side RZ Pellets WAC.
Also known as Wolfsberger AC at their Puskas Arena.
Now I can confidently say what I know about this side could probably fit on the side of a postage stamp, but in some better news, we continue to only have three out on the injury list. Giovani Lo Celso has long been ruled out, and manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed there will be no return for Sergio Reguilon either as he hasn’t travelled. He also revealed that he now expects Serge Aurier to be out for longer.
Jose on @sergio_regui:
"No good news. He's not coming (to Budapest). No setback, just the process is not going as fast as we initially thought. Let's see. Weekend, next Europa League match, let's see."#THFC ⚪️ #COYS pic.twitter.com/Y4trH69nxc

So let’s see what Thursday evening brings and then we can start thinking about the bubble blowers and hopefully getting ourselves back on track after our recent woeful Premier League form.
