Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur came away with a hard-fought victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend. Spurs have made their best start to a Premier League campaign though manager Mauricio Pochettino failed to make a single transfer in the summer.
The Lilywhites come up against Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend and after having picked up a win in the Champions League. Pochettino will now be aiming to further cement their place in the top four.
Moussa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Jan Veronghen will all be unavailable for this fixture. Spurs’ injury list has definitely reduced but Pochettino has a number of top stars out on the sidelines. They are nevertheless capable of coming up with a win against the Eagles.
Tottenham Hotspur predicted XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The Frenchman has been very inconsistent this season. He will still keep his place in goal after being rested in mid-week.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
Trippier will return to right-back after missing out the game against PSV in midweek. His supply is a massive asset for the Lilywhites.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
The Colombian has done well in the absence of Jan Vertonghen. He will continue at the back for this game as well.
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
Spurs’ best defender this season will surely attract interest from more clubs in January. He has been a leader at the back.
Ben Davies (LB)
Davies has failed to put in his best performances this season. The fullback has been defensively good though.
Harry Winks (LCM)
Winks’ distribution and energy on the ball have been very good. He will start at central midfield.
Christian Eriksen (RCM)
Eriksen will continue in a much deeper role with Mousa Dembele also out injured. Spurs are without two of their holding midfielders.
Lucas Moura (RAM)
Moura scored a goal in the last fixture and will now be aiming to maintain his form.
Dele Alli (CAM)
Alli is always a pest in the box for opposition defenders. He is yet to hit full throttle this season.
Erik Lamela (LAM)
Lamela has been impressive for the Lilywhites this season. He has dealt with his fitness issues and has come out on top.
Harry Kane (ST)
Kane has scored 4 goals in his last two games for Tottenham. He seems to be returning to form.
