Tottenham will clash against bottom feeders Crystal Palace in gameweek 11 of the Premier League, at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
After last week’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United, our boys bounced back brilliantly, thrashing European champions Real Madrid 3-1 in the midweek UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night at home. And manager Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that his team continues in the same vein of form against Roy Hodgson’s side come Sunday.
In what could be a major setback for Tottenham, captain Hugo Lloris will be ruled out close to two weeks due to a thigh injury he picked up against Madrid. Defensive mainstay Toby Alderweireld is unlikely to be involved after succumbing to a hamstring injury in the midweek game. Midfielder Victor Wanyama and winger Erik Lamela are confirmed absentees for Spurs.
With captain Hugo Lloris sidelined for the game, Dutch shot stopper Michel Vorm is all set to make his first Premier League appearance of the season.
With Alderweireld not likely to feature for the North Londoners, Eric Dier should start in the three-man backline on Sunday.
The Colombian centre-half is proving to be a brilliant piece of investment for the club. Should once again take the field in the heart of the defence.
The Belgian centre-half has been the proverbial rock at the back for Spurs. Will look to continue in a similar fashion on Sunday.
The Ivory Coast international might find a place in the starting XI, despite Kieran Trippier’s brilliance against Real Madrid, as Poch might look to rotate.
With Dier moving into the defensive line, Frenchman Moussa Sissoko should start in the middle of the park on Sunday afternoon.
The young academy product is growing in stature with every passing game for Tottenham. Should start once again ahead of Mousa Dembele.
Having returned from injury, a game against bottom side Crystal Palace could be the right time to reintroduce Danny Rose to Premier League football.
The Danish playmaker got himself on the scoresheet against Los Galacticos in the midweek game and will be keen on putting in a similar display against the Eagles.
The English midfielder was absolutely sensational against Madrid in the European fixture. Expect him to cause some serious damage to the Palace backline.
Shook off injury concerns to feature against Madrid and was brilliant, even if he didn’t find the net. A definite starter against Palace.
