23-year-old to make comeback and Tanganga to keep his place – Expected Spurs XI vs Norwich City

Tottenham face Norwich City for the second time in under a month as they look to record their first Premier League victory of 2020.

The game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the second of three games in an eight-day period for Spurs, meaning Jose Mourinho has some big decisions to make over his starting XI.

Hugo Lloris returned to first-team training earlier this week, although Paulo Gazzaniga, who saved Troy Deeney’s second-half penalty to earn a point at Watford, should keep his place.

We think that Mourinho will make just one change to the side that draw at Watford – with an unchanged back-four, meaning Japhet Tanganga will keep his place in defence, although Ryan Sessegnon will be hoping to earn himself a recall at left-back.

Eric Dier continues to look short of fitness, whilst Moussa Sissoko remains sidelined with a knee injury, meaning Harry Winks is likely to partner the returning Tanguy Ndombele in the centre of midfield.

Moving forward, Dele Alli and Heung Min Son are almost certainties to start – we think the duo will join Giovani Lo Celso – who will move further forward – and Lucas Moura in attack.

Here’s our expected XI to face Norwich – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.

Starting XI: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Winks, Ndombele, Lo Celso, Alli, Lucas, Son.

  1. I have never known such an unpromising way to play a weakened Norwich.
    Aurier out and Parrott in LoCelso is smart enough to play wing back and the Subs are there if a problem occurs
    Cirkin, Sanchez Lamela Whiteman Skipp Sessegnon
