Winks and Lamela start, Sissoko dropped – Possible Spurs XI vs West Brom

Tottenham host West Brom on Sunday aiming to end their run of three successive Premier League defeats, and so Jose Mourinho has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Giovani Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon all remain sidelined through injury, but there are thankfully no new concerns.

Despite the poor performance against Chelsea, we think Mourinho will make just two changes to the side that lost the London derby, with Erik Lamela coming in for Carlos Vinicius and Harry Winks replacing Moussa Sissoko.

That means Son Heung-min will play through the middle, supported by an attacking midfield three of Steven Bergwijn, Tanguy Ndombele and Lamela, who impressed off the bench against Chelsea.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will sit in front of the back four, hopefully allowing Winks to do a better job than Sissoko in moving the ball forward and putting Spurs on the front foot.

Hugo Lloris will be protected by a back four of Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Ben Davies, unless Mourinho sees a need for rotation.

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

  1. Again old story only one attacking midfielder
    Hojberg must forward not sit at back too much
    Look at all premier team defending midfielder move forward 60percentage so Hojbjerb should be the same to ensure all attacking to prevent bad habit sit at back
