Ottenham desperately needs a win tonight in the Europa Conference League against NS Mura from Slovenia.
Spurs had a brilliant start to life under Nuno Espirito Santo with three consecutive 1-0 wins, but their form has recently deteriorated with a 3-0 loss in a row to Crystal Palace and Chelsea, followed by a pathetic 3: 1 in north London, worsened derby defeat at Arsenal which was a really dismal performance in the first half.
As they squeezed past the Wolves on penalties in the Carabao Cup (after losing a two-goal lead), pressure is already building on their manager and his unpopular style of football.
A win against Mura in the new European club competition will hardly dispel the doubters, anything else would be an absolute disaster.
Spurs needed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s late goal to save a point in Rennes in the opening game of the tournament, while Mura lost to Vitesse at home.
NS Mura lost their first game 2-0 against the Dutch team Vitesse.

Tottenham vs. Mura prediction
Tottenham are set to make several changes for this game against far underdog opponents, although that’s not a bad thing after their recent Premier League performances.
It’s a no-win for Nuno in many ways. Spurs won’t get credit for beating a team that few of their fans have heard of before this season. However, if they do not triumph, the criticism will be fierce.
They should have enough to score a emphatic victory, despite the fact that they need to get back on track in the premier league. And fast.
