Predicted Tottenham line-up to face West Ham in the Premier League
Tottenham face a tough task as they return from the international break. Spurs play West Ham at the London Stadium in a derby and have a number of injury concerns.
Jan Vertonghen has a hamstring injury while the likes of Dele Alli and Danny Rose are out injured too. Spurs have done well in the Premier League despite a couple of defeats. We are just two points behind the league leaders and a win on Saturday would keep the pressure at the top of the table.
Mauricio Pochettino has to be smart with his team selection given our injury concerns.
Probable Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The France international should play this derby. Lloris hasn’t been at his best this season but a run of games should help him.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
The English defender is another player who seems to be suffering from a long World Cup, however, he should remain in the starting XI.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
Sanchez should start for us given Vertonghen’s hamstring injury and the Colombian has looked in decent touch this season.
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
The Belgian has to have a good game as he would be up against the in-form Marko Arnautovic.
Ben Davies (LB)
The Welsh left-back should start for us with Danny Rose out injured.
Harry Winks (CM)
Winks did play recently for England and should get a look into the team as we still have a few players out.
Eric Dier (CM)
Dier had a great showing against Spain but hasn’t done all that well when playing for Spurs this season. The Englishman needs a good game and let’s hope it’s on Saturday.
Son Heung-min (LAM)
The South Korean is an automatic selection when fit as he is one of the best players in the Premier League.
Lucas Moura (CAM)
Moura started the season well but has petered down a bit in recent weeks. Nevertheless, the Brazilian should start for the Lilywhites at the London Stadium.
Erik Lamela (RAM)
The Argentine has been excellent for Spurs this season and could be one of the keys to all three points on Saturday.
Harry Kane (ST)
Kane was in brilliant form for England and should start against the Hammers.
