As expected, Kyle Walker makes his long awaited return from injury and is set to play some part in this evening’s Europa League tie with Besiktas. Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino confirmed the news while revealing that a number of men have stayed behind ahead of this weekend’s Premier League action.
“Ade is back home, a personal matter,” said Mauricio. “After that, Kyle Walker is back and we will decide after training the starting 11 and who will be on the bench.
“We have a strong squad so some players have stayed in London – Vertonghen, Kane, Mason, Bentaleb, Eriksen and Naughton.”
Federico Fazio is back after suspension but there was no confirmation regarding injured players including Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli. Harry Winks is expected to get a chance – and may possibly even start – making this one of the tougher starting XIs to predict.
Here’s our best guess but what’s yours?
