Son Heung-min and Dele Alli to start? – Predicted Tottenham line-up to face West Ham in the Carabao Cup

Tottenham need to bounce back from their disappointing result against Manchester City as they face West Ham United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Spurs lost against the Cityzens by a solitary goal and despite having chances to score, failed to make their efforts count.

The loss puts the side five points behind the Premier League-leading duo of Liverpool and City, however, the performance wasn’t all that bad.

The game against West Ham shouldn’t require any motivation, given it is a derby, but we should expect a few changes to the starting XI.

Tottenham play Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend, and here is our predicted line-up for the game against the Hammers.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Paulo Gazzaniga Tottenham

Paulo Gazzaniga (GK)

Hugo Lloris should be given a break and the impressive Gazzaniga should start against the Hammers in the London Stadium.

Kyle Walker-Peters (LB)

Walker-Peters was on the bench in our loss to the Cityzens and could play against West Ham on Wednesday.

Juan Foyth (CB)

Foyth should get an opportunity to impress as Jan Vertonghen is out for a while due to an injury.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian has to be the leader at the back should we play with youngsters such as Foyth and Walker-Peters in the starting XI.

Serge Aurier (RB)

Aurier was another player on the bench against City, and the former Paris Saint-Germain star should get some handy minutes at the London Stadium.

Harry Winks (CM)

It was a surprise Winks did not start against the Cityzens, but he has to play against the Hammers.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

We could see Sissoko playing a deeper role to accommodate some of the other stars in the starting XI.

Dele Alli (RAM)

It was great to see Dele Alli back in action, even in a losing cause. The Englishman should start against the Hammers as we look to progress into the next round.

Tottenham Son Heung-min

Son Heung-min (LAM)

Son was an unused sub in the previous game and should be starting against the Hammers.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

The Dane played close to 10 minutes in the City loss and needs to have a quality performance for the team.

Fernando Llorente (ST)

Harry Kane doesn’t need to be risked in this game, and we should see Llorente get a start on Wednesday.
