Jose Mourinho has shuffled his pack and made three changes for Tottenham’s London derby against West Ham tonight.

The Portuguese remains without the injured Japhet Tanganga, but welcomes back both Dele Alli and Lucas Moura after they missed Friday’s draw with Manchester United – and the returning pair come straight back into the starting XI in place of Steven Bergwijn and Erik Lamela, who drop to the bench.

The back-four is unchanged, meaning Toby Alderweireld has to settle for a place on the bench, but there is a notable change in midfield – with the influential Giovani Lo Celso fit enough to start ahead of Harry Winks, who is rested.

Lo Celso will play next to Moussa Sissoko, joining an exciting-looking front-four of Moura, Alli, Heung Min Son and Harry Kane as Mourinho picks another attacking line-up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Here’s the starting XI to face the Hammers:

Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Sissoko, Lo Celso, Moura, Alli, Son, Kane.


Gazzaniga, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sessegnon, Winks, Ndombele, Gedson Lamela, Bergwijn.
