Jose Mourinho’s side are currently second on 10 points, while the Belgian side sit first with 12 points, meaning the hosts need to win to secure top spot and a seed for the knockout round.

Spurs are flying high at the top of the Premier League, but their 3-3 draw with LASK last time out in the Europa League could have consequences for their European campaign.

If Spurs fail to beat Antwerp this evening they will finish second in Group J and go through unseeded to the draw, which takes place at 12pm on Monday, 14 December.

That will mean potential knockout ties against Ajax, Club Brugge or Shakhtar Donetsk, who are all seeded after dropping down from the Champions League following third-place finishes.

Spurs cannot draw Manchester United because teams can’t play those from their Europa League group or a side from the same national association.

If Mourinho’s side beat Antwerp and claim top spot they will face an unseeded team in the next round, with the likes of Red Star Belgrade, Dynamo Kiev, Krasnodar, Olympiacos and Salzburg potential opponents.

The first legs of the ties will take place on 18 February, with the second legs following on 25 February.
