Tottenham are in desperate need of a result against Watford this weekend after the 3-0 capitulation at Brighton before the international break, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.
After reports suggested the Spurs boss is planning big changes, we recently drew up a possible XI that could play against Watford. But there have since been injury updates that could lead to tweaks.
Paulo Gazzaniga will start between the sticks and we may see the returning Michel Vorm on the bench. At left-back, Ryan Sessegnon still isn’t ready to play so Danny Rose is likely to keep his place despite some questionable performances from the 29-year-old.
On the other side, Juan Foyth might make his first appearance of the season at right-back after getting plenty of minutes in that position for Argentina during the break. Pochettino could bring Davinson Sanchez in at centre-back, but he may prefer the experience of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen while the team tries to dig themselves out of a hole.
We will probably see a familiar midfield three of Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele after the Eric Dier experiment failed at Brighton. Dele Alli should come in for Christian Eriksen – who suffered a dead leg playing for Denmark – to provide support for Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.
Here’s our predicted XI to face Watford – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
