Tanganga starts, 24-year-old starts for the first time of the season – Possible Spurs XI vs. Rennes


Tottenham travel to Rennes on Thursday to begin the Europe Conference League group stage in France.

With multiple injury concerns ahead of the draw, Nuno Espirito Santo could be forced to name a stronger team than he would have liked.

South American trio Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso all stay outside while the Spurs boss has already confirmed Eric Dier, Ryan Sessegnon and Heung Min Son have not traveled.

But in better news, Santo said Steven Bergwijn is in the squad and ready to play after the missed loss to Crystal Palace.

Keep in mind that Japhet Tanganga will be the only survivor of the back four that started in South London, with Matt Doherty, Joe Rodon and Ben Davies all making the starting XI.

In midfield, Tanguy Ndombele is about to make his first appearance of the season after returning to the bench at the Palace and should give Tottenham much-needed creativity ahead of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Harry Winks.

The exciting Bryan Gil should come back to the team and join Bergwijn and Harry Kane in attack.

Here is our predicted XI against Rennes – Gollini, Doherty, Tanganga, Rodon, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Ndombele, Gil, Bergwijn, Kane.
