Tottenham visit Anfield to take on Liverpool in the League Cup fourth round tonight, with both sides likely to field much weakened sides.
Mauricio Pochettino has already confirmed that Michel Vorm will start in goal. In front of him should be a back four of Kieran Trippier, Ben Davies, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Kevin Wimmer.
In the last League Cup match against Gillingham, Tom Carroll partnered Harry Winks in midfield. That seems somewhat weak against better opposition and it would make sense for Eric Dier provide security alongside Winks.
Further forward Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Josh Onomah will surely play, so it’s just a matter of whether Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela or Heung-Min Son complete the attacking midfielders tasked with creating chances for Vincent Janssen. Alli came off relatively early against Bournemouth and he could be the man to provide a goal threat behind Janssen.
Here’s our Spurs team to face Liverpool – What’s yours?
Not a bad team would finish in top have of premier
I wouldn’t pick Dier or Alli, need them fresh for the weekend
The team i thought of yesterday is the same, apart from Tom Carroll in place of Dele Alli.
Definitely not Alli, would also not play Dier. Carroll should play.
Good team, would like to see N’Koudou find the back of the net tonight! COYS!
Agree with back 5. Midfield would be Wanyama and Winks, N’Koudou, Dembele and Son, Jansen up top. All the bigger names on the bench. Onomah not yet ready for me. Bench only. If not risking Moussa then Onomah wide and Son in behind Vince.
