Mauricio Pochettino has selected most of his best players in each of Tottenham’s last two matches. A strong Spurs eleven lost 1-0 in Gent last week, but a couple of tweaks resulted in an impressive 3-0 victory at Fulham in the FA Cup on Sunday.

It seems Pochettino will continue to go with a strong team in all three competitions with various fringe players failing to do enough when given the chance.

Hugo Lloris and Kyle Walker were both rested at Craven Cottage, so they should start at Wembley. Jan Vertonghen is likely to start after getting through 90 minutes against Fulham.

Eric Dier was also given a rare break against Fulham; perhaps he will start in place of Victor Wanyama, who deserves a rest. Harry Winks shone at the weekend, but Mousa Dembele might be preferred against Gent.

Harry Kane, fresh off an FA Cup hat-trick, is very likely to start up front with Tottenham needing a result. Here’s the XI we think Pochettino will go with. What do you think?
