Victor Wanyama will make his Tottenham Hotspur debut at Goodison Park against Everton, stepping in for the suspended Mousa Dembele.

The former Southampton man aside, Mauricio Pochettino has picked a rather familiar starting eleven. Most noteworthy is Jan Vertonghen’s selection: he returns from injury to partner Toby Alderweireld at centre back.

Perhaps tellingly, there is no place on the bench for either Tom Carroll or Nacer Chadli.
