Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Everton In The Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur aim to go level on points with 4th-placed Liverpool when they host Everton at the Wembley on Saturday.
With the Reds not playing until Sunday, Spurs have a chance to put pressure to them as we fight for Champions League spots.
Spurs will be hoping for a win after they were held for a draw in their last league game against West Ham United.
Everton, who have enjoyed some resurgence since Sam Allardyce’s appointment, are now winless in five. New signing Cenk Tosun is expected to feature for the Toffees.
Toby Alderweireld remains sidelined with a hamstring injury and Harry Winks is out with an ankle injury. Other than these two, there are no injury concerns for manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Probable Tottenham XI
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The French international is the first choice for Pochettino in goal and would be keen to keep a clean-sheet against Everton.
Serge Aurier (RB)
Aurier has been quite solid in the right-back position and should return to the starting line-up after sitting out against Wimbledon in the FA Cup.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
The Colombian defender has been a reliable presence at the back for the Lilywhites and should continue to feature in the heart of the defence.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
The Belgian is a rock at the back for the North London outfit. Fresh from scoring a 25-yard rocket in the FA Cup, he might be raring to have a few pops against Everton.
Ben Davies (LB)
With Danny Rose injured, Davies is expected to continue his good form at left-back.
Eric Dier (CM)
Dier looks much more assured in the midfield than in defence. The return of Victor Wanyama means that the England international has to step up his game from now.
Mousa Dembele (CM)
Dembele does well with Dier as his partner and Pochettino will need both players to be in their sublime best to help Spurs steal 3 points from Everton.
Christian Eriksen (RW)
Eriksen has been far from his best this term but he is expected to start on Saturday. The Dane’s trickery and magical passes will be required for a Spurs win at Wembley.
Dele Alli (CAM)
Alli has looked more involved and influential in the recent few games. And, the game against Everton will be a good chance for him to work his magic.
Heung-min Son (LW)
Son’s influence has been unbelievable this season and he has slowly but surely established himself as one of the major attacking threats in the team. A sure-shot starter on Saturday, following his pile-driver against West Ham last week.
Harry Kane (ST)
The mercurial Kane was in the score-sheet against Wimbledon in the FA Cup, and given the rich vein of form he is in, I could place a bet on him scoring against Everton.
