Tottenham Hotspur look to end Matchday 4 at the top of the Group J standings when Europa League action resumes Thursday. To do that they’ll need to defeat Belgian side RSC Anderlecht, who bested Tottenham 2-1 two weeks ago.
Spurs are unbeaten with a 4-2 record in their last six European games at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham and Anderlecht both have four points through three games in Group J. Anderlecht’s win over the English side was their first and only win in group play. Both clubs trail group leader AS Monaco, who will take on bottom-dweller Qarabag FK Thursday.
Two weeks ago, Christian Eriksen scored four minutes in, giving Tottenham an early lead. That lasted less than ten minutes, as Guillaume Gillet pounced on a corner and blew a low shot past Hugo Lloris. Despite a lack of offense Hotspur dominated possession, completing 532 passes to Anderlecht’s 190. It was all for naught however as Stefano Okaka beat Lloris with the winning goal fifteen minutes from full time.
Since losing to Anderlecht, Tottenham won their next two domestic league games by a combined score of 8-2. They are currently ranked fifth in the Premier League table.
Kickoff is scheduled for 3:05 p.m. Eastern. For a stream of today’s action, click here.
