Sunday’s performance from Spurs against Manchester City was extremely impressive with Nuno’s side deserved winners against Pep Guardiola’s team.
Another tough game awaits in the Premier League this weekend against the manager’s former club Wolves and there is little doubt that Nuno will rotate his squad.
Nevertheless, Spurs should still be too strong against a team making their European debut and who were roundly beaten 3-0 by Boavista at the weekend.
A scare in Bulgaria aside, Spurs were pretty comfortable in their Europa League qualifying matches last season and backing them to get the job done with the minimum of fuss should certainly be of interest.
