Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Stoke City In The Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur enjoyed a wonderful 3-1 away victory at Chelsea last weekend and with that victory, they have almost guaranteed a place in the top-four. On Saturday, they travel to face a struggling Stoke City, who are without a win in eight games under new manager Paul Lambert.

Spurs marked their first victory at Stamford Bridge in 28 years, which leaves them 8 points ahead of 5th-placed Chelsea with just seven games remaining in the season.

However, they must not take Saturday’s game casually. The Potters find themselves in the relegation zone and will do anything possible to get three points.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris is the first choice in goal and would be keen to keep a clean sheet against Stoke.

Serge Aurier (RB)

With games coming thick and fast, Pochettino needs to ensure his entire squad stays fresh and that could see him give Trippier a much-needed rest and hand Aurier a start instead.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian centre-half has been brilliant for us since arriving in the summer. He must start against Stoke.

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

Vertonghen is the leader of our defence and has to put up a solid display to keep the Stoke attackers at bay on Saturday.

Danny Rose (LB)

Such has been Ben Davies’ form this season that Danny Rose has found difficult to get into the starting line-up on a regular basis. However, given that Davies has played a lot of games and Stoke are at the wrong end of the table, I expect Pochettino to hand Rose a start.

Eric Dier (CM)

Dier has blown hot and cold this season but came up with a top-notch performance against Chelsea. He would be hoping to garner momentum against Stoke after last weekend’s solid display.

Mousa Dembele (CM)

It is difficult to imagine a Spurs team without Mousa Dembele. The Belgian controls the midfield engine with his strength and poise. Rarely misplaces a ball.

Christian Eriksen (RW)

Eriksen’s wonder goal at Chelsea last weekend proved that he is not only about guile and creativity but is also capable of producing belters. His trickery and passing make this Spurs team a delight to watch.

Dele Alli (CAM)

Alli was at his sublime best against the Blues, scoring two goals to hand the team a memorable victory. It was the game that showed why Alli is so highly-rated in Europe.

Son Heung-min (LW)

Son has been exceptional this season. His diligent work-rate is a key factor as we look to keep our place in the top-four.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane has been in scintillating form this season, with an incredible 39 goals to his name this season. With Spurs aiming for a top-four finish and an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United on the horizon, Kane’s return has come at the right time.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Some Tottenham fans reacted to the Moura dance and loved every second of it.

Spurs beat West Ham in a tough London derby on Saturday and will need another quality performance against PSV Eindhoven in midweek.

Tottenham downplay interest in signing 25-year-old Colombian star

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
