Son Heung-min to start? – Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Crystal Palace



Son Heung-min Tottenham

Tottenham don’t have an easy game after their midweek triumph over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. Spurs face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday’s late kick-off and we should be up for another London derby.

The late win over PSV should give us confidence going into this tie, and Mauricio Pochettino should be looking to play his strongest XI before the international break.

Spurs do have a number of injury problems with the likes of Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele are trying to get fit.

This is our final clash before the upcoming international break, and here is our predicted line-up to face the Eagles.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The captain was suspended for the game against PSV but will return to the first-team unless he picks up an injury.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier didn’t start in our win over the Dutch giants but should replace Serge Aurier in the starting XI.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian has seen a lot of minutes for Spurs due to Jan Vertonghen’s injury and should remain in the side for Saturday’s game.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

Alderweireld needs to be at his best when we take on Palace with the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke raring to go against Tottenham.

Ben Davies (LB)

The Welsh left-back needs to have a quality game for Tottenham after a run of decent performances.

Harry Winks (CM)

Tottenham are a little light when it comes to the midfield options, and we should see Winks keep his place in the heart of the team.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

The Frenchman has performed well during the absence of Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier and should continue playing in a deeper role when we face Palace.

Erik Lamela (RAM)

Tottenham are seeing the best of Erik Lamela this season and the Argentine should get a start for the side on Saturday.

Dele Alli (CAM)

The Englishman recently came back from an injury and should be fit to start against the Eagles.

Son Heung-min (LAM)

It was tough choosing between Son and Christian Eriksen, however, the South Korean just edges ahead of the Dane due to his work-rate for the team.
