Predicted Tottenham Hotspur line-up to face Manchester United in the Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur are one of six clubs who have won both their opening games. Although Mauricio Pochettino failed to make a single transfer in the summer, the Lilywhites have looked confident in their matches.
Up next is a clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford, and given that Jose Mourinho’s men were beaten by a stubborn Brighton and Hove Albion last week, Spurs must aim to add to their misery.
Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyam are both out for the week. The former underwent surgery and will be sidelined for the foreseeable future. Heung-Min Son will also be unavailable since he will be participating in the Asian Games.
But otherwise, Pochettino has a fully-fit and firing squad to pick from.
Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The French World Cup winner was called to action a number times against Fulham last week. There’s no way Lloris won’t start this game.
Toby Alderweireld (RCB)
The Belgian continued his strong form from the World Cup by putting in a commanding performance at the back in the last game.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
Sanchez made the move to Spurs last season and immediately nailed down his role in the squad.
Jan Vertonghen (LCB)
A vital cog at the back for Tottenham, there’s no chance Pochettino will drop him.
Kieran Trippier (RWB)
The England right-back once again proved his quality as a versatile player in the game against Fulham. He scored a sublime free-kick as well.
Christian Eriksen (RCM)
Eriksen is yet to register a goal or assist this season but there’s no doubt the Dane will eventually come good.
Mousa Dembele (LCM)
Eric Dier endured a lacklustre game last time out. Hence, Pochettino should start the reliable Mousa Dembele this time.
Ben Davies (LWB)
Davies is a talented full-back whose supplies in the final third provides the attack with a number of opportunities.
Lucas Moura (RAM)
The Brazilian has finally started to show the quality that earned him his move to Spurs. He scored his first goal for the club in the last game.
Dele Alli (LAM)
Alli’s work rate and performances are underrated but he is a vital member in Pochettino’s squad.
Harry Kane (ST)
The England captain has finally broken his August hoodoo, meaning he could hit new heights this season.
