Doherty starts, Dele dropped: Possible Spurs XI vs Watford

Tottenham face Watford in the Premier League on Saturday aiming to bounce back from Wednesday’s disappointing draw against 10-man Southampton, and Antonio Conte has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

The Londoners have a busy January with games in three different competitions coming thick and fast, so Conte is likely to rotate a little – but not too much – for the Watford game.

We think there will be three changes to the XI that started at Southampton, with Matt Doherty, Oliver Skipp and Lucas Moura coming into the team for Emerson Royal, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Dele Alli.

Sergio Reguilon was replaced by Doherty at half-time against Southampton, but this time Doherty will play on the right. Skipp will partner the in-form Harry Winks in midfield, while Lucas Moura will join Son Heung-min and Harry Kane up front.

The back three should remain the same barring any fitness worries, and Hugo Lloris will obviously start between the sticks.

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

  1. Please Spurs to buy 3 new players early in January instead of last minute because Spurs is well known in the past as last minute buy new players which is not good health also other reason is that Spurs really needs new central defender and striker to support Kane now to keep up in the league

  2. I agree with the back-three and the front-three as those areas are pretty settled. The middle-four is guess-work as Conte will be rotating but you probably got it right. Doherty went up a little in my estimation in the S’ton match because I did not know he could play as a left wing-back

    • He was crap cost us time n time again with cutting back on to his right foot gives defence time to sort things out n mark players n his chance he missed when if he just touched it with his left foot it was a goal doc is poor

  3. Doherty is not a left back or a left wing back full stop….we only have Reguilon who can play either or Davies as a left back….we have much larger problems in other places on the pitch and they are through the spine of the team….center back center mid and center forward.
