Tottenham travel to Burnley in the Premier League this weekend, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Davinson Sanchez returns from suspension and should slot straight back in to the defence. That means Eric Dier will either play as part of a back three or push up into a holding midfield role.

With Dier shielding the backline, Harry Winks will be given the opportunity to roam forward and be more expressive – he’s been a bit safe in recent matches.

Further up the pitch, I’m hoping to see Erik Lamela start in order to add some creativity in the final third. Dele Alli is desperately out of form, and although Pochettino rarely drops him, he may be forced to this weekend.

Elsewhere, Ben Davies and Serge Aurier are almost certain to come in for Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier in the full-back positions.

Here’s our predicted line-up to face Burnley – what’s yours?
