Tottenham host Manchester City on Sunday aiming to build momentum after beating Norwich City last time out in the Premier League.
Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko remain sidelined, as does Ben Davies – though the Welshman is close to a return. In any case, Jose Mourinho has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.
We think Mourinho will make just one change to the side that drew at Southampton in the FA Cup last weekend. Gedson Fernandes looked slightly off the pace at St. Mary’s so Erik Lamela – who assisted Son Heung-min’s goal against the Saints – could take his place.
Hugo Lloris will be protected by a back four of Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Japhet Tanganga – the youngster is likely to start at left-back but drop into a back three when Spurs are on the attack.
Harry Winks will sit at the base of the midfield, giving Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli licence to roam forward and help out a front three consisting of Erik Lamela, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura. We could see new signing Steven Bergwijn used from the bench.
Here’s our predicted XI to face Manchester City – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
