While English clubs Arsenal and Leicester City have made sure of a place in the knock-out stage of the Europa League, Tottenham Hotspur still have some work ahead of them.
Europa League matches air live and exclusive on StarTimes football channels. Matchday 5 kicks-off Thursday at 6:55 pm.
Spurs are second in Group J ahead of their away trip to Austria for their match against LASK. Like Antwerp, Jose Mourinho’s team have nine points but are behind their rivals based on the head-to-head result.
LASK are on six points, but as they lost the away leg in England 3-0, they have to win to have a chance to overtake Spurs.
The two other Premier League teams left in the competition – Arsenal and Leicester – are already assured of a place in the knock-out stage of the competition and can afford to give some of their regular players a break.
One player who is looking forward to getting a chance is their record signing Nicolas Pépé, who has to sit out a three-match domestic suspension after being red-carded for head-butting an opponent.
Arsenal’s record in the Europa League has been impressive and their record over the last three season reads: Semi-final, runners-up and round of the last 32.
