Tottenham travel to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round this weekend, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli are still sidelined with injuries while Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko, who both limped off against Chelsea on Thursday night, will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s game.

Paulo Gazzaniga will keep his place between the sticks ahead of captain Hugo Lloris.

Pochettino will probably rest one of his centre-backs to give Juan Foyth a chance. Toby Alderweireld has played a lot of football recently and so could drop out, but it could easily be Jan Vertonghen instead.

If Davies can’t play then Danny Rose will almost certainly start on the left. Kieran Trippier should replace Serge Aurier on the opposite flank.

In midfield, Eric Dier may be given the opportunity to continue building his fitness, but Harry Winks could be rested. If that’s the case, 18-year-old Oliver Skipp might start next to Dier.

Fernando Llorente was substituted with 20 minutes to go at Stamford Bridge, suggesting he will start on Sunday. Erik Lamela blew hot and cold against Chelsea and so Lucas Moura might be preferred to help Llorente and Christian Eriksen in attack.
