Tottenham face Burnley in their second home game of the season at Wembley on Sunday, and the hosts will be aiming to bounce back after last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at the national stadium.

Of course, Burnley beat Chelsea 3-2 at Stamford Bridge on the opening day, so this one won’t be as easy as it looked a fortnight ago.

Mauricio Pochettino has a couple of important decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Kieran Trippier has recovered from the knock he picked up towards the end of the Chelsea game, so he should start at right-back.

Victor Wanyama looked particularly drained last week, which can be put down to a lack of pre-season minutes. He has reportedly been given permission to miss Kenya’s upcoming friendlies during the international break.

As a result, I think he’ll be benched on Sunday, while Eric Dier is likely to partner Mousa Dembele in central midfield.

That means there’s another spot for a forward, so I assume Heung-Min Son will join Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in the attacking trio behind Harry Kane.

Here’s our team to face Burnley — what’s yours?
