Son Heung-min to start? – Predicted Tottenham line-up to face PSV at Wembley

Harry Kane celebrates with his Tottenham teammates

Tottenham have all to play for as they face PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League on Tuesday. The home side drew against the Dutch team in their reverse fixture, and a similar result would put us in danger of missing out on the group stage.

Mauricio Pochettino saw his side win against Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 on Saturday, but we again let go of a comfortable lead as we were 3-0 up in the second half.

Tottenham gave a couple of poor penalties away and such mistakes have to be avoided under all circumstances.

Pochettino has to make some changes to the team in hopes of keeping us fresh, and here is our predicted line-up for the Champions League tie.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Paulo Gazzaniga (GK)

Hugo Lloris is suspended for this game and we should see Gazzaniga start for us in between the sticks.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier didn’t have a great game on Saturday, but should get the nod ahead of Serge Aurier in this must-win clash.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez came on as a substitute in the last game and should be part of the starting XI on Tuesday.

Toby Alderweireld Tottenham

Toby Alderweireld

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian had a decent outing in the 3-2 win over Wolves and has to be at his best to keep the Dutch team in check.

Ben Davies (LB)

We aren’t sure of the time-frame for Danny Rose’s return so Davies should continue in the starting XI.

Harry Winks (CM)

Winks was great in our win over the Wolves and the Englishman should keep his spot in the team.

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Mousa Dembele could be out for a while and that means more game time for Sissoko at Tottenham.

Son Heung-min (RAM)

The South Korean had to come on as an early sub and was replaced too. Hopefully, Son will be fresh for the game against the Dutch side.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

The Dane got half an hour in our 3-2 win over Wolves, and Tottenham need him to be at his best against the Dutch side.

Lucas Moura Tottenham

Lucas Moura (LAM)

Moura was amongst the scorers at the weekend and should be part of the starting XI against PSV.

Harry Kane (ST)

The Englishman scored in our previous game against Wolves and should lead the line on Tuesday night.

Eric Bailly

Tottenham face additional competition for the signing of Manchester United defender Eric Bailly, according to the Daily Mail (h/t Express).

The United defender has been linked with a move to Spurs (h/t Express), however, the report claims that Paris Saint-Germain want to sign the 24-year-old.

The Ivorian hasn’t seen much playing time for United this season with only four starts to his name. His last game for the club was the 3-2 win over Newcastle United which came over a month ago.

The defender could be a quality addition to the side but Mauricio Pochettino has to work with Bailly to get the best out of him.

It has been a sapping time for the 24-year-old at United and the report adds that Spurs were tipped to sign the player having not signed anyone in the summer window.

The report adds that the United chiefs are set to meet to discuss the Ivorian’s situation. It will be interesting to see if United are willing to let go of the player, especially to a Premier League rival.

Tottenham are five points behind Manchester City after 12 games and face Chelsea one we return to Premier League action in a week’s time.

Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was busy during the international break as he was pictured watching a Barca B game recently.

Our next game is against Chelsea after the break is over, but it seems Pochettino wanted to keep an eye out for future talents from the Catalan side.

A report from Sky Sports adds that the gaffer and his coaching staff, Toni Jimenez and Jesus Perez, would be travelling to Barcelona for a conference to represent the Catalan Football Federation.

The Argentine was quoted (h/t Sky Sports) saying:

“The Catalan Federation asked us to go there and talk with the Catalan coaches, and I think it is a great opportunity to share, and explain how the Premier League is and Tottenham.”

Spanish reports (h/t Sky Sports) claim Pochettino could have been at the game to scout some Barcelona players.

Sky Sports adds that Spurs were interested in Barca B star Riqui Puig, who did play in the match Pochettino saw.

The manager knows the Spanish league well from his time at Espanyol, and given the history between Barcelona and his former employers, it will be interesting to see if we do snap someone up from the Catalan giants.

“It is definitely possible” – Harry Kane believes he can break this record for England

Harry Kane

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has Wayne Rooney’s record in sight as England prepare to face Croatia during the international break.

The former Manchester United striker played his last England game in our 3-0 win over the United States. Rooney ended his international career with 53 goals from 120 games.

Kane, for his part, has 19 goals for the Three Lions and was asked if he could break Rooney’s scoring record (h/t BT Sport).

“It is definitely possible.

“It is still a fair bit away, I don’t like to set my targets that far ahead in the future because a lot can happen.

“We will see over the years how many goals I have got. Hopefully I will still be fit and healthy and getting selected by the manager.

“It is achievable but not something I’m thinking about too much right now.”

Harry Kane Tottenham

The clash against Croatia would be a repeat of the World Cup semi which England lost. A win over the Croatians would send England into the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League but the away side will come with a lot of confidence.

Croatia defeated Spain in their last game, and Gareth Southgate has to be wary of the threat from the away side.
