Tottenham’s starting line-up for Monday night’s Premier League meeting with Everton has been confirmed.

Antonio Conte has made just one change to the side that lost at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup in midweek.

Harry Winks drops out of the team, making way for the returning Rodrigo Bentancur, who has missed the last couple of games through injury.

Bentancur is partnered by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in central midfield, sitting in front of the back three of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies.

Hugo Lloris starts between the sticks as usual, while Conte has kept faith in Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon in the wing-back roles.

Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane should carry a threat going forward, while Lucas Moura will hope to make an impact from the bench at some point.

With all of the above in mind, it looks like Conte is just about settled on what he believes to be his strongest XI – though Oliver Skipp could challenge for a starting spot when he’s back from injury.

Meanwhile, Dele Alli is on the bench for Everton. What do you think of the Spurs starting XI? Let us know in the comments section below.



  1. Hugo Lloris will start in goal as he does every game, and Antonio Conte will continue to play Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon on the wings despite their lack of playing time.
