Winks and Dier in midfield: Predicted Tottenham line-up against Cardiff City

Eric Dier

Tottenham return to Premier League action after their 4-2 loss against Barcelona in midweek. Spurs were second best throughout the game and saw a masterclass performance from Lionel Messi.

The Catalans could have scored more than the four at Wembley while Harry Kane and Erik Lamela got the goals for the home side.

Our next clash is against Cardiff City on Saturday, which should be an easy three points for us.

Tottenham have a bit of an injury crisis at the moment with several players out. The squad will be stretched before the international break and here is our predicted line-up for the clash at the weekend.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris looked a little rusty in the game against Barcelona. Our No.1 is back and should start against the Welsh side on Saturday.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

The English defender is slowly finding his World Cup form and with Serge Aurier injured, Trippier should start the game.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

Jan Vertonghen is injured and his Belgian teammate Alderweireld would be interested in keeping a clean sheet.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Toby would be partnered with Sanchez as we look for a win against Cardiff before the international break.

Danny Rose (LB)

Ben Davies played against Barcelona in midweek but Rose should start as the left-back on Saturday.

Eric Dier (CM)

The Englishman needs to have a good game on Saturday after coming on as a sub against Barcelona.

Harry Winks of Tottenham

Harry Winks (CM)

The youngster was a surprise starter in the Champions League clash and should keep his place for the game against Cardiff.

Son Heung-min (LAM)

Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are doubts for the game at the weekend, hence Son should start for Tottenham on Saturday.

Erik Lamela

Erik Lamela (CAM)

The Argentine is possibly in the form of his life and we cannot drop him for the upcoming fixture.

Lucas Moura (RAM)

Moura has had a stop-start season so far but with the injuries we have, the Brazilian should keep his place in the team for Cardiff’s visit.

Injured West Ham star could return for Tottenham clash



Tottenham celebrate Carabao Cup win over Watford

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini expects Robert Snodgrass to be back for the London derby against Tottenham on Saturday, according to the Evening Standard.

The Scot withdrew from the Nations League game against Portugal and returned to England for treatment, as per the report.

Snodgrass didn’t play in Scotland’s loss to Israel, and the Hammers knew about his issue and were in communication with the national team.

West Ham were on a decent run before a 1-0 loss against Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break. The Hammers beat Manchester United at the London Stadium and even held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw.

Tottenham, for their part, will have a few players out with injuries. Jan Vertonghen is out till next month, as per the report, and a number of players could be last-minute call-ups as they fight to regain fitness.

Jan Vertonghen

Visiting the London Stadium will not be easy, especially after the international break but we have to win these games to keep the pressure on the league leaders.

Tottenham are a couple of points behind the pace-setting trio of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, and it will be important to see how we fare against our rivals on Saturday.

Juan Foyth

Juan Foyth

Juan Foyth hasn’t made an appearance for Tottenham this season but was called up for the international friendlies against Brazil and Saudi Arabia.

The youngster played eight times for Spurs last season but didn’t make a Premier League appearance. The Argentine joined Spurs from Estudiantes at the start of the previous campaign and shared some images of his time with the national side.

The 20-year-old defender was spotted with Santiago Ascacibar, Walter Kannemann, Fabri Bustos and Renzo Saravia.

The Argentine’s return to fitness will be a boost for the rest of the season and hopefully, he will get a few games for the club.

Tottenham have some injury concerns with Jan Vertonghen picking up a hamstring injury in our win over Huddersfield. The Belgian could be out till December and Mauricio Pochettino might have to rotate his team to ensure everyone stays fresh.

Tottenham’s next clash is against West Ham at London Stadium and it will be interesting to see who will play for the Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven.

Spurs lost their opening two games in their group and have to defeat the Dutch giants if we are to have any chance of making it to the knockout round.

Davinson Sanchez

Davinson Sanchez played for Colombia in their recent 4-2 win over the USA in an international friendly. The central defender has started eight games for Tottenham in all competitions this season and played against the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan.

Colombia face Costa Rica in another friendly and Sanchez was in great spirits as he shared a few images of his team-mates in training.

The defender shared an image of Edwin Cardona and Matheus Uribe as Sanchez seemed to be dribbling the ball.

The 22-year-old also put up another picture of the entire Colombia squad from training. Stars such as Juan Cuadrado and Carlos Bacca were seen posing, and the team will look to pick up another win over Costa Rica in the coming days.

Sanchez had a decent World Cup with the national side but he has had some tough outings for Tottenham this season.

The Colombian played in our losses to Watford, Barcelona and Inter Milan and we need to buck up in the Champions League.

Our next two games are against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League group and we have to win those fixtures if we have any chance of making it to the knockout rounds.
