Tottenham face Manchester City in a crunch Premier League clash on Saturday, and Jose Mourinho has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Matt Doherty is self-isolating after a positive coronavirus result, so we think captain Hugo Lloris will be protected by a back four of Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon.

In midfield, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will sit in front of the back four, with Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele providing support for the attackers.

Gareth Bale was taken off after an hour of Wales’ UEFA Nations League victory over Finland on Wednesday, so he should be fit enough to start alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in attack.

There are question marks over the fitness of Erik Lamela and Steven Bergwijn. The latter was sent home from international duty by the Netherlands due to fitness reasons.

If those two are unavailable, Dele Alli could make a rare appearance in the Premier League squad. Giovani Lo Celso could also make an impact from the bench.

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