Tottenham are in FA Cup action today against Crystal Palace and Mauricio Pochettino must shuffle the pack carefully ahead of the midweek Europa League tie against Fiorentina.

Pochettino mixed regular first-team starters with some fringe players on Thursday and should do the same against Palace. Michel Vorm will start again with Hugo Lloris injured, with the full-backs once more rotated and Eric Dier returning to the side alongside Kevin Wimmer.

In midfield, if Nabil Bentaleb doesn’t start then it’s probably safe to assume that he’ll be off in the summer. With Tom Carroll out, Ryan Mason should get another chance to shine, with Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli playing further forward.

Finally, Harry Kane started on the bench against Fiorentina and should be back up front in place of Heung-Min Son.

Here’s our Spurs team to face Crystal Palace. What’s yours?



  1. I can’t believe as a sports writer you’re NOT up to date with what’s happening at Tottenham Hotspur. You’ve included Carrol in the line up yet since our Europa league game he was substituted and since Thursday its been reported several times that he’s out for at least 10 days. Before you write such drivel please do a bit of homework otherwise how can we trust you as a sports reporter when we know more of what’s happening in the sports world than you.

  2. Eric,
    It’s a typo, he does say Caroll is out and mason will come in
    The graphic hasn’t been changed from Carroll to mason
    Calm down fella

  3. now now fellers lets calm down and have a party we are not the scum supporters from down the road but true supporting supporters who are proud of our team we support through thick and thin what ever the weather we are there now the home supporters have to start making noise from the start of the match till the end we are the 11th man so lets make it hell for all visiting teams our away support is exelent but when playing at home everyone seams nerves let get behind the team from the start COYS remember to dare is to do

  4. Doubt Bentaleb will get a game… he’s fallen right out of favour. Hope I’m wrong though. Personally would like to see Cameron Carter Vickers given a game and Josh Onamah. I know that risks the game but the possibility of winning the league makes this a very low priority in my book.

  5. I agree with Yossarian. This game is our lowest priority so give the younger players a chance – I still think they are good enough to best Palace! My team would be: Vorm | Walker, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Rose | Mason, Bentaleb (or Winks) | Lamela, Onomah, Son | Chadli
