Jose Mourinho has shuffled his pack and made four changes to his Tottenham side for their FA Cup 4th Round replay against Southampton.

Hugo Lloris has managed to shake off a hip injury and starts in goal for Spurs, who make just once change to the back-four from Sunday’s Manchester City win, with Jan Vertonghen starting alongside Toby Alderweireld in place of Davinson Sanchez, who drops to the bench.

Eric Dier comes into midfield next to Harry Winks, whilst Tanguy Ndombele makes his long-awaited return to the starting XI in a more advanced role.

The bad news for Mourinho is that Argentinian pair Giovani Lo Celso (thigh) and Erik Lamela (groin), both miss out through injury, although the former’s isn’t set to be serious, according to Press Association’s Jonathan Veal.

Ndombele will be joined in attack by Ryan Sessegnon and Heung Min Son, whilst Lucas Moura, who is looking for his first goal since the 3rd Round draw at Middlesbrough, continues up front on his own.

Youngsters Troy Parrott, who hasn’t featured since December, and Dennis Cirkin are both on the bench for Mourinho’s men, as is Dele Alli, who has shaken off an ankle injury.

Starting XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Tanganga, Dier, Winks, Ndombele, Sessegnon, Lucas, Son.

Substitutes: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Cirkin, Skipp, Gedson, Alli, Parrott.
