Dinamo Zagreb will certainly be no pushovers, especially after topping Group K and then beating Russian side Krasnodar over two legs last time out.
Our Tottenham correspondents Alasdair Gold and Rob Guest are covering the match with all the action from inside the stadium and reaction from the supporters and media.
Scroll down for all of our latest updates from north London.
The presence of Son and Kane always makes any line-up look strong although Mourinho has made seven changes for the game.
Spurs have the goal threat in Kane, Son and Dele Alli, while Tanguy Ndombele will look to link up play but the key will also be to keep Dinamo out at the other end and prevent any troublesome away goals ahead of next week’s return leg in Croatia.
Eric Dier returns to the defence and he knows that all eyes will be on just how his inclusion changes the dynamic of a defence that has conceded just one goal in the last three Premier League matches.
Serge Aurier is back in the team and he wilil be looking to prove his fitness ahead of Sunday’s north London derby and push his claim to start ahead of Matt Doherty, who has impressed Mourinho with recent performances.
The midfield of Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko is one we haven’t seen too much and without a natural sitting player, they will have to show discipline as a partnership in the centre of the pitch.
The bench is strong and that’s showcased by the lack of academy youngsters involved this time around.
They will be hoping that if Spurs can overcome a tough Dinamo side, who are unbeaten in this competition with six consecutive wins and sit clear at the top of their domestic league, then they might get to make the trip next week.
Tottenham have to put on a show tonight, not only to try to take charge of the tie but also to continue their recent shift in momentum ahead of Sunday’s trip to the Emirates Stadium.
The game kicks off at 8pm on Thursday, 11 March at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The match will be screened live on BT Sport ESPN. Subscribers can stream the match via the BT Sport app or desktop website.
Spurs will be hoping to have Serge Aurier available, though he may not be risked from the start even if fit. Giovani Lo Celso is likely to be in the squad as he makes his return from injury, but Joe Rodon is ineligible.
Zagreb will be without Sadegh Moharrami but are otherwise choosing from a full squad.
