Eriksen and Vorm to start – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham XI to face Newcastle United

Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Newcastle United in the Premier League

For the 3rd time in 7 years, Spurs face Newcastle on their opening day of the season. It will certainly not be easy for Spurs to face the Magpies in front of a bouncing St. James’ Park and the team news will make it even harder for Pochettino’s men. While Newcastle are at almost full strength, Spurs would be lucky to start even half of their usual starting XI.

A vast majority of Tottenham’s squad consists of England and Belgium internationals and the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Kieran Trippier etc. returned to training just a few days back. Their unavailability gives a chance for Rafa Benitez’s men to try and take all 3 points from this fixture.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation : 4-3-3

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Michel Vorm (GK)

Vorm should start ahead of Hugo Lloris, who played the World Cup final for France. This could be a good chance for the veteran Dutchman to please the fans.

Serge Aurier

Serge Aurier (RB)

The Ivory Coast defender is the only senior right-back available and it looks like the spot is pretty much his own until Trippier returns to full fitness. A summer break and a decent pre-season should be enough for those lung-bursting runs down the right-hand side.

Davison Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez’s Colombia exited the World Cup in the round of 16 and returned to training in the last week of August. He started in the recent friendly win over AC Milan and should do so at the weekend.

Cameron Carter-Vickers (CB)

The U-20 American international was heavily involved in the pre-season and has clearly impressed Pochettino. In the absence of Jan Vertonghen, he should partner Sanchez at the heart of the defence.

Danny Rose (LB)

With Ben Davies out injured, Danny Rose could be handed a start. A very good opportunity for the Englishman to try and impress Pochettino.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier (CDM)

Pochettino might have to play Dier as a holding midfielder as Mousa Dembele has just returned to full training. The English international wasn’t involved heavily with England at the World Cup and should be relatively fresher than his other teammates.

Luke Amos (RCM)

Pochhetino would have been left impressed by yet another youngster in the pre-season, Luke Amos. The 21-year-old started all of Spurs’ pre-season games and should start here.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

The Danish superstar took his country to the round of 16 where they were dumped out by Croatia on penalties. But that was weeks ago and now Eriksen is back to his base, ready to show his usual magic in the Premier League.

Heung-Min Son (LW)

Son has to travel to Jakarta to play in the Asian Games 2018 but he is available to play the opening game of the season for his team. Behind Harry Kane, he was Spurs’ best player last season. With his 12 goals and 6 assists, Premier League got its latest star from Asia.

Lucas Moura

Lucas Moura (RW)

Lucas Moura arrived at Tottenham in the January transfer window and played only 206 minutes in the Premier League as he couldn’t break into the first-team. But in the absence of Alli, he has his chance to cement his place in the starting XI.

Georges N’Koudou (ST)

Both Llorente and N’Koudou started 2 games each in Tottenham’s pre-season tour, but it was N’Koudou who caught everyone’s eye by scoring the winner against AC Milan. The 23-year-old Frenchman looked very sharp, even in the defeat against Girona.

  1. I think we’ll likely play 5 at the back and attack down the wings.
    Poch will be keen for Alderweireld to play to show he’s focused on Spurs now the transfer window is shut.

    I think we’ll see


    Aurier Toby Sanchez Jan Davies
    Dier Dembele
    Lucas Son Eriksen

    Or maybe N’Koudou in place of Dembele and Eriksen in CM

  2. This article is a COMPLETE FANTASY. Absolute rubbish! Kane, Trippier, Vertoghan, Deli, Lloris & Dier will all play tomorrow. Pochettino has said today that he is happy with the condition of all these players. After all they were super fit when playing for their respective countries less than a month ago and have had 3 weeks holiday to recharge their batteries and 5 days of training this week.

    NoCludeo would never be picked in the first eleven by Pochettino against Premier League opposition. The author of this article should contact his doctor as he’s obviously sick!
