Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Arsenal In The Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action with a mouth-watering clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. In our last game, which was against Crystal Palace, we just about scraped a win thanks to a solitary striker by Son Heung-Min.
Arsenal, for their part, will be looking to claw their way back into the top four but we do have the upper hand when it comes to recent North London derbies and will look to heap more misery on the Gunners.
Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Dele Alli all missed international football for the Three Lions but we should see Kane and Alli back in the starting XI to face Arsene Wenger’s side.
We might also be without Hugo Lloris, and Toby Alderweireld is another player who is a major doubt for the clash against the Gunners.
Probable Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Paulo Gazzaniga – GK
The youngster did not look extremely confident in the previous game against Palace but he did make a couple of important saves and should remain in the side as Michel Vorm is also a major doubt.
Davinson Sanchez – CB
The Colombian has been a great fit for us and hopefully, he will keep Alexis Sanchez and company out from scoring.
Eric Dier – CB
With Alderweireld almost a certainty to miss out, Dier should start in the three-man backline against the Gunners on Saturday.
Jan Vertonghen – CB
Possibly the best defender in the Premier League, Vertonghen will start for us unless something unexpected happens to the Belgian defender before the commencement of the game.
Kieran Tripper – RWB
Although Serge Aurier started the previous game, we might see Trippier back in the line-up, possibly since he is a better defender than Aurier and maybe the derby would be a little too much for the former PSG man.
Mousa Dembele – CM
The Belgian was brought on in the previous game to replace Harry Winks and with the Englishman still a doubt, Dembele should start for us.
Christian Eriksen – CM
Eriksen simply must start given his exploits in the World Cup qualifier against Ireland where he scored a hat-trick.
Danny Rose – LWB
Rose might have angered a number of fans but he certainly did a pretty good job in last game and should start against the Gunners.
Son Heung-Min – LAM
Son was excellent against Crystal Palace and hopefully, he performs at his best against Arsenal and helps us claim three points.
Dele Alli – RAM
Alli and Kane both missed England duty but the former MK Dons star should get the start to face the Gunners.
Harry Kane – CF
The Englishman is the leading scorer in the Premier League and will look to score a few more and cause Arsene Wenger’s side a lot of problems.
