Jose Mourinho’s first team selection as Tottenham manager has been confirmed.

Spurs have travelled to West Ham United for a Premier League London derby that kicks off at 12.30pm (UK time).

We expected Serge Aurier to be left out but the Ivorian starts, as does Ben Davies, with Danny Rose dropping to the bench.

Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez are partnered together at centre-back. Eric Dier steps into midfield, sitting next to Harry Winks in front of the back four.

An exciting front four of Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane means Christian Eriksen and Giovani Lo Celso are on the bench.

Jan Vertonghen and Tanguy Ndombele both failed late fitness checks and miss out altogether.

The Xi isn’t too different to the one we guessed. We thought Rose and Juan Foyth would start at full-back, but the other nine players are exactly the same as our predicted line-up.

Mourinho will be desperate to get off to a winning start. Let us know your score predictions in the comments section below.
