Tottenham travel to Hudderfield Town on Saturday for the first encounter between the clubs since September 1972.

The visitors have the option to bring in three key players who missed the midweek win against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League.

Neither Jan Vertonghen nor Dele Alli travelled to Cyprus because of suspensions, so both players should return to the starting line-up.

Christian Eriksen, who missed the victory over APOEL through illness, is almost certain to start.

Kieran Trippier will keep his place in the team with Serge Aurier serving a one-match ban following his dismissal at West Ham last weekend. Meanwhile, Mousa Dembele is out with an ankle injury.

There’s a good chance Pochettino will opt for a midfield diamond of sorts, featuring Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Eriksen and Alli.

Here’s our Spurs XI to face Huddersfield – what’s yours?
