Tottenham’s starting eleven will be under even more scrutiny than usual as Mauricio Pochettino’s side travel to Crystal Palace.

Pochettino made the brave decision to play Heung-Min Son as a left wing-back in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday.

Son was chosen in that position in a bid to be more offensive, but it didn’t pay off. The Korean gave away a penalty at a crucial time in the game and Spurs went on to lose 4-2.

With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if Son retains his place in the team at Selhurst Park.

Pochettino is unlikely to leave out Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama — two players he clearly trusts — so Tottenham will probably go with a 3-4-2-1 system like they did at Wembley.

We think Ben Davies will return at wing-back, meaning Son will have to settle for a place on the bench. In hindsight, it’s the team Pochettino probably should have picked against Chelsea.

Kyle Walker should also return to the starting eleven as he continues to be rotated with Kieran Trippier. Here’s our line-up — what’s yours?

  1. I do like the three at the back system, it’s just, I think Dier is a bit of a liability at the back, he makes too many mistakes. I’d love to see Virgil Van Dijk at the back for Spurs, what a formidable back three line he’d make with Jan and Toby.

  2. My team would be a proven on..
    LLORIS – WALKER – TOBY – JAN – DAVIES – DIER – MOUSA- ERIKSEN – DELE – KANE – SON ..
    They played so well together recently & the football was Fantastic.. With this team I am still sure we could stil have a chance of winning the PL.. COYS!!..
