An out-of-form Tottenham go into their away fixture against Red Star Belgrade after a draw against Everton in the Premier League.

They will be without their captain Hugo Lloris and Erik Lamela, who have picked up injuries and their return is unknown.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Paulo Gazzaniga (GK)

After the injury to Lloris, Gazzaniga has made his mark on the field. He has been brilliant against Liverpool, making a few good saves and has been a bright spot in goal for Spurs. He is expected to retain his place.

Juan Foyth (RB)

The youngster returned from injury and made an appearance against Everton, coming on as a late substitute for Serge Aurier. He can be deployed at right-back and is expected to start in place of Aurier.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

He has been a mainstay for Pochettino’s side and will be looking to improve as they seem to be vulnerable at times. His defensive qualities propelled Tottenham to the Champions League final last year and he will be hoping to continue with the same.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian has been in and out of the teams and hasn’t had a continuous start. Injury to Jan Vertonghen has given him a chance to prove his worth and he is expected start alongside Toby Alderweireld.

Ben Davies (LB)

Davies perfectly fits in ahead of Danny Rose as he helps both the defence and the attack. Being out of the team for a long time, he will be hoping to set up his game a level higher.

Tanguy Ndombele (CDM)

The defensive midfielder has been improving since his move from Lyon. He should be an undoubted starter.

Moussa Sissoko (CDM)

The Frenchman has started most of the games for Tottenham this season. He is expected to partner Ndombele in the middle.

Son Heung-Min (RW)

The lively winger has had a slow start to the season. After a poor game against Everton which saw him get a red card, the Korean will be hoping to turn things around.

Dele Alli (CAM)

After returning to the side from injury, Alli scored against Everton in the Premier League. Pochettino will be hoping to see an improvement in his game.

Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen (LW)

Eriksen has been a regular starter despite his poor form. However, his experience is a big asset to the team and is a main force as well.

Lucas Moura (ST)

His competition with Harry Kane in the front line hasn’t allowed him to play many games but his presence can bring a change as the match progresses. Given Kane’s illness, Lucas should from the front.
