Nuno Espirito Santo is without the Tottenham players who started Sunday’s win at Newcastle, with all 11 to remain in London to prepare for Sunday’s derby against West Ham.

With Ryan Sessegnon and Matt Doherty sidelined through injury, most of Nuno’s team for tonight’s match in Arnhem therefore has picked itself.

The only big question for the head coach was whether to hand another start to Dane Scarlett after the teenage forward struggled to make an impression in his first three appearances in the competition.

Steven Bergwijn will start for the first time since the win over Watford in August after recovering from injury and the Dutch winger says Spurs fans are still yet to see the best of him.

“No, I don’t think so – I know I have more in house, but I started this season positively and well,” he said.

“Last season was difficult for me, but this season started positively and then I got the injury but I kept the confidence from the staff here and you will see the best of me soon.

“Yeah of course [injuries are frustrating] but this is life. Injuries, these things happen, but for me it’s important to stay close to myself. I know what I can (do). I’m fit again so now it’s time to show myself again.”

Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Gollini; Tanganga, Sanchez, Rodon, Davies; Winks, Lo Celso; Bergwijn, Dele, Gil; Scarlett.

Subs: Austin, White, John, Fagan-Walcott, Clarke, Cesay, Matthew Craig, Michael Craig, Lyons-Foster, Markanday.

Vitesse XI: Schubert; Doekhi, Bazoer, Rasmussen; Dasa, Bero, Tronstad, Wittek; Frederiksen, Darfalou, Openda.

Subs: Oroz, Hajek, Von Moos, Gboho, Domgjoni, Houwen, Yapi, Buitink, Vroegh, Cornelisse, Huisman, van Haveren.
