Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Huddersfield In The Premier League

After an impressive showing against Apoel Nicosia, Tottenham will now turn their heads towards the upcoming Premier League showdown. Sitting 4th on the log, 2 points behind Chelsea and 5 points behind leaders Manchester United and Manchester City, Tottenham will travel to Huddersfield this weekend with a hope of coming away with all three points.

It certainly won’t be an easy outing for the Lilywhites given that the hosts are having a perfect home record in the Premier League this season. In their last three home games, the Terriers have won once and have managed two draws – against Southampton and Leicester City. David Wagner’s men might well be happy with a point, but Tottenham need to make sure they clinch all three points from the fixture.

Furthermore, what might cheer us up is the fact that we are one of the best away sides this season. In the last three away games in the Premier League, we have scored an impressive 8 goals. Besides, the fact that we have won 13 consecutive Premier League matches against newly-promoted sides will also be a boost.

History beckons for Tottenham this weekend, a win would see us win the opening four away games of the season for the first time since 1960/61. Furthermore, Harry Kane shares a daunting memory with the Kirklees Stadium as the last time he played at the venue – 2011 on loan at Leyton Orient –  he scored a goal and was then sent off. Let’s take a look at how Tottenham might line up against Huddersfield this weekend.

Hugo Lloris

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris

Absolutely no doubt about it! Lloris has made some prodigal errors this season, but remains Tottenham’s number one without the slightest of doubts. He has managed 3 clean sheets so far and will be looking to add more.

Defence: Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen

These three remain the lynchpin of Tottenham’s defence and have only shipped 3 goals in the last 5 appearances. Huddersfield sure carry a slight upper hand due to the home support, but scoring against these three will be a mountainous task. The first and utmost threat for the trio would be Aaron Mooy, who has created an impressive 15 goal scoring chances this season, which is actually twice as many as any of his team-mates.

Wing-backs and Midfielders: Trippier, Winks, Dier, Davies

With Serge Aurier missing the fixture due to a suspension (after his red card at West Ham), Kieran Trippier is rightly expected to get the nod on the right flank. The opposite flank will undoubtedly be occupied by Ben Davies. Both Davies and Trippier started against Apoel in the Champions League, but the lack of option might well force Pochettino to use the duo this weekend as well.

Kieran Trippier

The central spot will be occupied by Eric Dier and Harry Winks. Pochettino has admitted that he will have to be careful with Winks but the lack of resources – both Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele are injured – means Winks might start the fixture. However, if Pochettino decides to rest Winks, Moussa Sissoko might well start in midfield and his partner in crime would be Eric Dier.

Attacking Midfield: Alli, Eriksen

Dele Alli will return to action following his European suspension and will look to add more numbers to his tally. Having already scored two goals and one assist, the Englishman will line up alongside Christian Eriksen, who appears to have recovered from his illness. Another creative game lies upon us!

Striker: Harry Kane

Stating Kane in the line-up has become a protocol now. Kane is grabbing all the headlines and has scored 11 goals in his last 5 top-flight away games. Hang on, there’s more; Kane has scored 20 goals in his last 16 league appearances against promoted teams. Brace yourselves Huddersfield Town!
