Spurs started their Premier League season with an encouraging record 1-0 victory over champions Manchester City, although they then fell into a sweet 1-0 defeat against Pacos like Nuno Espirito Santo appointed a young formation in Portugal.
Tottenham have rebounded with a comeback to League victory over Wolves, and that tie is far from over as Nuno can restore a few big names to his starting XI – including Harry Kane.

Prediction Tottenham vs Pacos
Nuno finds himself in a delicate position: does he trust his young players to get out of a hole, or does he call on his star names? It could be a bit of both – and if Spurs’ big players have an early impact, they should have enough to qualify for the group stages.
