Tottenham looked home and hosed after just 20 minutes of their London derby against West Ham on Sunday.
However, a combination of their defensive frailty, some bad luck and a worldie from Manuel Lanzini saw Spurs throw away a 3-0 lead and earn just a point.
Jose Mourinho was philosophical after that match but you can be sure he’ll demand a response from his players.
The bookies make Tottenham the heavy odds on favourites to beat LASK in their first match of the Europa League group stage and we think they’ll do so in a game where three or more goals are scored, an outcome you can bet on at 4/5 with Virgin Bet.

Tottenham vs LASK Recommended Bets:
Despite the way the West Ham game ended, there were plenty of positives for Tottenham’s players, fans and management to take out of the performance.
Once again, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son were lethal going forwards whilst Gareth Bale returned to play his first game for Spurs since 2013.
The thought of Bale playing alongside Kane and Son is enough to give Premier League defenders sleepless nights and if they really click then Tottenham could find themselves in the title race.
Mourinho also has strength in depth away from his most important players.
He’ll give some of those on the fringes of the first team the chance to shine against LASK.
With so many players keen to prove themselves to Mourinho, we think Tottenham can secure a thumping 4-0 win which is available at 12/1 with 888sport.

Key Battle to Look Out For
Kane and Son are likely to get the evening off on Thursday but Spurs won’t change their approach.
Expect players to pour forwards in numbers and for the home side to score from some quick breaks.
That style of play is perfect for Gareth Bale who should get more minutes on Thursday and can grab the first goal of his second spell in north London at 11/8 with BetVictor.
