Tottenham’s starting line-up for Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Manchester United has been confirmed.
The headline news is that there is no place for Sergio Reguilon nor Tanguy Ndombele in the XI. Instead, Nuno has given the nod to Ben Davies and Giovani Lo Celso.
The rest of the team is as expected. Hugo Lloris starts between the sticks and is protected by a back four of Davies, Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Emerson Royal.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp will sit behind Giovani Lo Celso, who will provide support for the front three of Lucas Moura, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.
It seems strange that Reguilon and Ndombele are on the bench, particularly given that Davies and Lo Celso didn’t exactly impress at Burnley in midweek.
At the same time, Nuno is perhaps trying to refresh is Premier League starting XI by putting pressure on the players who expect to start every game.
