Tottenham welcome West Ham to Wembley on Thursday night, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of selection decisions to make amid a busy week of fixtures.

The match falls just 48 hours after the 2-0 victory at Swansea on Tuesday. Spurs then play AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup on Sunday.

With that in mind, Pochettino will have to be careful with the fitness of his key players. However, I don’t expect to see many changes from the side that beat Swansea – rotation can be saved for Wimbledon.

Danny Rose is injured so Ben Davies will keep his place on the left. On the other side, Serge Aurier is likely to come in for Kieran Trippier.

Erik Lamela perhaps isn’t fit enough yet to start two matches in 48 hours, so either Harry Winks or Mousa Dembele could come in for him. I’ve gone with Winks.

Harry Kane should also return to the starting line-up after being rested against Swansea. Here’s our predicted XI to face West Ham – what’s yours?
