As Tottenham Hotspur stage their final home game of the Premier League season, there will be no fans in the seats. However, come October, there is hope that some fans will be allowed to return to matches. United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson made the announcement today.

Of course, fan attendance would be contingent on having COVID safe measures in place, and the success of “pilot” events in August that will serve as a testing ground for this sort of thing.

“I think it’s great news,” Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said ahead of his side’s clash with Leicester City on Sunday.

“Everybody who loves football wants football for all. Us living from football, making our salaries from football, knows the importance of that, so between the economical side of it and the passion side of it.”

“I think we would all be so, so happy to see people back at stadiums.”

With that said, let’s make our Starting XI predictions for both sides in this one.

Well, Mourinho did say that his former club, Manchester United deserve to be in the Champions League running, despite being very lucky. I guess he can do a solid for them by getting a result of some sort here.
