Predicted XI: Spurs could make 11 changes for Rochdale trip – will Lucas Moura start?

Tottenham travel to Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Harry Kane is a doubt after twisting his ankle against Juventus, but Lucas Moura is in contention to make his first start for the club.

I think Pochettino will make 11 changes from the side that drew in Turin.

Notably, Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are almost certain to start as they continue their return to full fitness.

Heung-Min Son, who came off the bench late on against Juventus, should be fresh and ready to start, too.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Rochdale – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.

Spurs XI v Rochdale Away


  1. Would like to see Gazzanigga in goal maybe? I thought his kicking and out balls were a strong point.
    Llrorente needs to start scoring some convincing goals, maybe looks a little heavy than when he was in good form at Swansea? ?
    Excited by Moura!

  2. I’d play Erickson for the first half and try get the tie won then replace him with sissoko.
    But other than that that line up is spot on, maybe leave trips out and put the young lad walker peters in.

  3. Two players from yesterday have now had, in my opinion, a fair crack of the whip and have let themselves and the club down. Sissoko and Llorente i’m Sorry you have both come short. Neither of you have shown the pride or effort demanded when pulling on the famous white shirt. For the replay, I’d look to replace you both with youth. Players who can be trusted not to leaving anything out on the pitch. Yesterday Mr Sissoko and Llorente you were an embarrassment!
