Tottenham travel to Barcelona on Tuesday night knowing they must match or better Inter Milan’s result against PSV Eindhoven in order to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Inter are favourites to beat PSV, so it’s likely Spurs will have to win at the Nou Camp. As a result, Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier both haven’t travelled and Pochettino has already confirmed Kyle Walker-Peters will play at right-back.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are the only fit centre-backs. To their left Danny Rose will probably get the nod over Ben Davies, who started against Leicester City on Saturday.

Pochettino might have been planning on a midfield partnership of Eric Dier and Harry Winks, but Sissoko will almost certainly start in order to help out Walker-Peters on the right.

That means Winks will be on the bench, with Eriksen and Alli making up a sort of midfield diamond.

Alli will be given license to roam forward and join Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane in attack. Lucas Moura will almost certainly play a role from the bench if he doesn’t start.

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