Tottenham travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose remain sidelined through injury, but Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier have returned to training.

Dier should come straight into the team to partner Harry Winks in central midfield. Kieran Trippier is also likely to return in place of Serge Aurier at right-back, while Hugo Lloris will replace Paulo Gazzaniga between the sticks.

As for the attacking positions, take your pick. Pochettino has heavily rotated his forwards in recent weeks. We think Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Lucas Moura will start behind Harry Kane, with Heung-Min Son and Erik Lamela on the bench.

However, Lamela or Son could just as easily start if Pochettino thinks Eriksen and Alli still need to build up fitness following recent injuries. Alternatively, Dier could be rested having been called up to the England squad.

Here’s our predicted line-up to face Palace – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.



  1. Paulo instead of Lloris so that he will have some rest. Keep put Ali and Christian for Lamela and Son so that we will have them both in form for the crutal game against Inter. Maybee Victor instead of Dier if he is fit. I am looking at the Inter game. If we are say two or three up we can also bring on Llorente.

  2. With 2wks before our next game (except international games), the players will have a rest!

    I’d go with:


    Tripps Sanchez Toby Davies

    Dier Winks

    Alli Lamela Moura
