After (eventually) brushing Leicester aside on Monday night, we now travel to Lisbon to try and keep our winning streak going.
It’s back to Europa League action tonight as we face Sporting Lisbon at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.
It looks like our main left back options will still be missing, with Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac sidelined, while Leno should continue in goal due to Cech still being out injured.
It looks very likely that Sokratis will sit the game out, perhaps to return at Palace this Sunday, while it’s said that Lisbon will continue without (Ctrl V) Bas Dost, Raphinha and Stefano Sturaro.
Other squad payers who have travelled include Ozil, Carl Jenkinson(back from injury and Birmingham), Emile Smith-Rowe and 4th choice keeper Deyan Illiev, so it will be a real mixture of youth-sperience for the game, one of our hardest tests of recent weeks.
We are currently sat top of the group on 6 points, level with Sporting, while Qarabag and Vorskla are rooted to the bottom jointly, with a big fat zero points.
The game is on BT Sport and kicks off at 5:55pm UK time, or 5:55pm in Portugal due to the time difference.
